Siesta Key parking can be quite difficult to find. We loved the option of free valet parking offered by Blue Que and a number of other nearby restaurants and the fact that they’re on Open Table which made it easy to make reservations. Once we arrived, we were seated on the front deck near the band. Overall, the atmosphere was... More

Just returned from what was supposed to be a great night out for dinner. Called for the "all you can eat" for lobster on Wednesdays and was told that a reservation was required because it was "one of our busiest nights". Made the reservation for 8p knowing the lobster special began at 6p. Made the inquiry whether the lobster would... More

In this case, AFTER visiting the Blu Que I read other reviews and it appears as if management is oblivious to the information available to the general public on line . . . not... More

We frequent the Blu Que Island Grill because it is within walking distance of our condo and we like one of the bar tenders (Jaime). We have had dinner here many times because we also enjoy the atmosphere and live music. The food is average. The service is very inconsistent and we have spoken to the manager about it on... More

Was there for late lunch/early dinner. Our 4th time and it was great as always. Our sever Tony was courteous and the appetizers we ordered were great. I had a dozen oysters and buffalo shrimp. My wife had peel and eat shrimp and guacamole with pico de gallo and chips.

Family of 9 for a birthday dinner and it was excellent from pastas to seafood. Great service too. Best meal we have had in Siesta Key. The prices were high but well worth it for a special occasion.

Steak left something to be desired and the potatoes were very dry. The chicken sandwiches were good. Service was sub-par and they weren't busy.
