The place is attractive and service was prompt and friendly. I ordered the salmon. It was overcooked and swimming in a heavy handed bbq sauce. The waitress offerred to replace my main course but there was nothing else on the menu that I could eat. Additionally, the vegetables contained meat products. My wife thought that her BBQ was ok but... More

Others have stated what is in the buffet, but for $21/person I haven't found a better AYCE brunch. Ever. I wish I had a bigger stomach so I could have sampled more! This is an absolute "Don't Miss" if you want awesome food and plenty of it.

My husband was craving ribs so we headed out to Bethany Blues on a Tuesday night. It was not crowded and the service was quick. We enjoyed Portobello steak fries for an appetizer and great draft beers. I ordered a half-rack of the St. Louis ribs and my husband ordered the sampler - a half-rack of St. Louis and a... More

I dined with my extended family of 6 on 11/28/2014. The menu clearly states that one can have a salad wedge as one of the two sides with certain meals. Three of the 6 of us availed ourselves of that option-ordering 1 side and a salad wedge. When the bill came, there were [you guessed it!] THREE EXTRA CHARGES for... More

If you like BBQ, you will love Bethany Blues. They do it right. Food is amazing and service is fast and friendly. They offer combo plates, which are great if you just can't decide on one (which happened to me). Definitely a favorite when we visit the area.

Five dollars get you a basic burger..you can then add anything your heart desires for a few dollars more. Anything means anything...macaroni and cheese..fried green tomatoes..pulled bbq chicken. A vegetarian burger is also available. This special... More
