We had a nice dinner here. The service was good. We really enjoyed the live music--Patrick Stoutenborough. They should stock some gluten free beer, it wouldn't be all that hard.

Really yummy food. Easily the worst service I've had anywhere in years. If you're extremely patient, don't mind gambling on your food or drink order being correct & spending hours for a drink & sandwiches .... then go here.

Holiday weekend so it was crowded. One of the only places in the village that accepts reservations. The live music was great, the food was slow coming out but we didn't mind--it was a busy night.

Stopped with friends for a couple of drinks. Service was very good and she was super friendly even as she was quite busy. We had the sliders for an appetizer and they were quite tasty. We maybe would have went back for a dinner but our time in Siesta Key was limited to a quick visit.

I would have given this restaurant an "average" rating, but for the lousy service. The food is avarage, nothing special at all. The live music is typical for what you'd expect at an average restaurant and okay. But the waitress we had ruined the experience to the point of being laughable. For some reason she lost interest in our table... More

Six friends went to Blu Que Island Grill in Siesta Kay. We all had a nice time with good food, very good service and great live music. The menu was nicely varied with something for everyone. Everyone at the table enjoyed their food. The oysters proved to be especially popular. The server, Erin, was excellent. There was a performer singing... More

Food is edible, but not great. Service is friendly, but neither prompt not attentive. Big patio. Live music. Overall, underwhelming.
