Was in the mood for barbeque brisket until I had it here. 13.00 for a brisket sand which. I thought for that price it would make two meals. Wrong. They don't even have their own sauce, they use Jack Daniels that you can get at your local super market. They leave a lot of fat on the meat and it... More

If you are hoping to eat late then avoid! They started to clear the restaurant and bar around 930. Once the live music has finished there is absolutely no atmosphere. Food is very average and lacks flavour. Definitely avoid desserts!

This is a cool place to eat along with the live acoustic music. I had the crab cakes which were very good. They were served with asparagus and mashed potatoes. My wife ordered the seafood pasta and really enjoyed. Decently priced. Will be back.

On Sundays they roast a baby pig on the outside bar b que. It smells amazing but looks too disgusting to eat for those of us who are on the fence as vegetarians. We have eaten there 2 times but have been disappointed. On our first visit the waiter accidentally dripped red wine on my white pants. He brought me... More

We came to this place for one of our nights out during our honeymoon. The menu looked very appealing and the atmosphere seemed fun and laid back. We ordered drinks but the waitress failed to tell us about their drink specials, causing us to pay $12 for one piña colada when we could have only paid $6. I asked them... More

This restaurant seems to have live music nearly all the time, which is very nice. They also have half off appetizers from 4-6, but the food was just average. There are so many other restaurants in the village that simply outshine BluQue.

We vacation in Siesta Key annually, and started going to Bluque 3 yrs ago. The first time was good. The second time was pretty good. This time the service poor. We rarely saw our waitress, even though she was very pleasant. They had a male singer who was decent, and he said that he'd take requests. Please remember to make... More

All of the six appetizers we had were delicious. Our waitress, Nell, was a lot of fun. Nice live music. Definitely sit outside.
