Our first visit since September 2010, this will be our last. Only tried due to next door finer-dining place being closed for three days for maintenance. First thing anyone notices is the BBQ smell; they have pipes distributing the smell/smoke all around the property. Smells like BBQ. We asked to be seated inside due to the heat and there being...

A good amount of tasty food. Decent selection and very friendly staff. Our waiter looked exactly like Sam Elliot (just another plus)

There is a hint of barbecue in the air when you park outside the Blu Que Island Grill on Siesta Key FL. We had the grouper sandwiches and they were quite tasty. The waffle fries are a good side as is the cole slaw. We ate there the day after Labor Day and the tourists had all cleared out. There... More

A horrible dining experience. Service was worst than poor. Server had a lazaie fare attitude. Food was below average. On the seat next to us was a giant palmetto bug having lunch and his was on the inside of the restaurant, with the waitress saying this happens all the time. The one up scale note is that the management did... More

Had a few lunches and one dinner at the Blu Que during our stay in Siesta Key. We loved the casual atmosphere and the food and service was terrific each time. At dinner there were 12 of us, taking up two booths outside. Eric was our waiter and he was awesome. He fit right in to our family and had... More

We were all set to celebrate our best friend Janet's birthday at the Cottage next door, as we made it a tradition since a few years, but they have changed their menu from the past so we didn't stayed and came to the Blu Que.... Not knowing of course what to expect! We were greeted by the most friendly and... More

We got the Grouper Sandwich from the menu and thought it was really good. The environment of the restaurant is very nice with both inside and outside dining, live music, and relaxed atmosphere.

They were so good they did not need sauce. I love sauce but I will get it on the side next time. We split a full rack. It was perfect for us. Blue Cheese Chips are a great way to start.

After debating several places we chose Blue Que and had a great meal with outstanding service. Has a mixed menu of seafood and bbq which was a nice change from Other local places. Great atmosphere and nice live band.
