They advertised "All you can eat Lobster" for $35. Since it was my birthday and I love lobster we decided to go to this restaurant for our first time. Upon arrival we are handed a flyer type paper that has evening specials listed. The flyer states "$15 lobster additional lobster $10". What? What happened to the all you can eat?!?!... More

We did not like this place at all. It was noisy, with poor service (actually our waiter was not so kind at all) and the food was nothing special. We had to wait a long time to get our fish undercooked! Do not ever order a glass of wine! They will bring you a ridiculously small portion (it was way... More

Waitress didn't know the menu AT ALL. Really annoying - must have come to our table around 10 times to ask odd questions. Quite certain she was on drugs! Either that or just incredibly thick!! Band were great and good atmosphere. Food was OK. Over priced and half served.

Half price drinks and appetizers during happy hour. Check website for times, as it sometimes changes. Smoked wings and calamari are great, but all apps are delicious! Meals are also great.

Family always has Blu Que on list of places we must visit several times. Love the ribs, pulled pork, special salads and tried the lobster dinner. Desserts are good - especially "fried Oreos"

We live in Siesta Key. About five times a week we frequent a number of local restaurants in both Siesta Key and Sarasota. We decided to try Blue Que just to branch out a little. I ordered their brisket burger, medium rare, and my wife ordered one of their dinner salads with brisket. I didn't want the fries or chips... More

We went for dinner and my filet steak was absolutely excellent. Tender and flavoursome. My husband had the ribs which were excellent. A couple of days later we went with my husband's parents for lunch. I had brie in pastry. It didn't seem much like a pastry but it was very nice. They had haddock in batter. The batter was... More
