Spent our first night in Siesta Key at this cute and fun restaurant. Live music was great and the food was awesome. My husband had the ribs, which he said were the second best ribs he ever had, and I had the grouper which was equally fabulous. Will make sure we eat there again the next time we are in... More

The restaurant was nearly full but we were seated right away. The staff were a lot of fun and seemed to enjoy their jobs. The live music was great, a one man show and very talented. The food was quite tasty and the portions were generous. I'd like to see the menu expanded a bit. This is a fun place... More

Spent a super Sunday afternoon listening to great live oldies and enjoying a yum lunch and drinks. Fun atmosphere and right near the beach and fun stores in Siesta Key Village.

Our waiter was very friendly, helpful and offered great service (when we could find him). He seemed to disappears for extended periods of time and we could find him anywhere. That being said, the food and coconut martini was amazing!

We went here because a guy at the local farmers market recommended it and gave us a 5.00 off coupon. It was okay, but not that great. My wife ordered the lobster which kind of upset her stomach, it was either that or the butter! I had the hamburger with blue cheese, i thought it was kind of dry and... More

I would give this a better review but for the awful service we received from our waitress.(Note- our daughter has been a server, and we are very understanding about the pressure servers can be under. However, this was a situation of a lousy server with a bit of an attitude as well that truly affected our evening.) She started out... More

We always make a point of going to the Blu Que for some afternoon apps and a few glasses of wine while we enjoy the live music they feature and we are never disappointed. I would have to say that their mussels are divine and definitely what I strive for my own when I make them at home. The calamari... More

My wife and I had an excellent dinner last night at the Blu Que! I had the surf and turf (a 6oz steak and 1/2 pound lobster tail for $21!) and my wife had the barbecued ribs. Both were excellent. The service was also very good as our waitress was helpful in providing recommendations, and was very patient with us... More

Visited Blu Que for the first time this year and I'm wondering why I never went here before. This place was great! Awesome food, great beer selection, and tasty specialty drinks! Perfect for a quick bite or for dinner with the family.
