Greeted by an unfriendly hostess unfortunately. We were somewhat pointed in the direction of table to be seated as it was a tight squeeze. The wings for appetizers were good. Our waitress Elyse was a doll and the highlight of our visit to this establishment along with the BEST burgers ever ! Sorry to say this establishment would not be... More

They were grilling a pig as we walked by on the way to the beach and that peaked our curiosity. On our way back it was happy hour and their pulled pork was $5 so we decided to try them. It was average. I ordered the baked Brie and was sorely disappointed! A small slice of brie that may has... More

If I could give this restaurant less than one star, I would. I booked a late reservation for 10:15 pm. When we arrived at the restaurant, there was no hostess to greet us. We ended up having to seat ourselves. Upon our arrival a waitress came over to the table and told my dad that the kitchen was closed. When... More

WORST restaurant experience we have ever had on the island! It started with a surly bartender whose demeanor made it clear he'd rather be doing anything than serving customers. Next we were seated with no silverware. By the time our food came, we still had no silverware and were missing the chicken one of our entrée salads. By the time... More

Seats open but said there was a hour and a half wait, but if you want to seat at the picnic tables you could be seated right away. Also do not tried and substitute your order for anything but what it says

Wow! My wife and I really enjoyed our evening here. The venue is a bit old, almost tattered, but the food, prices and service are great!!! I had the half rack of ribs, done perfectly, accompanied by half price happy hour drafts. My wife got her usual -- smoked brisket with grits, of which there is always enough to bring... More

We have dined twice at BluQue...both times out front on the deck where we listened to good dinner music. Fresh fish dinners were very good. Service was also good, maybe too quick! Would definitely go back for a casual night out.

We went to Blu Que on a Friday with friends after work. It was a great atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. They had Live Music with Steve playing the keyboards and a drummer. This made for a fun after work party. The food was a variety of different styles of BBQue, Seafood, salads, and other Casual Fare. The smokey... More
