The atmosphere was great.

We didn't eat here but did have drinks. The atmosphere was really cool. There is both open air and inside dining.

Against better judgement we opted to try this place. We recently moved to Siesta Key (from an amazing foodie city of Charleston, SC) and having a very hard time finding decent food here. $90 for a horrible dinner. I asked about the special of the day - it was Trout. It's customary that if fish is a special - it's... More

We stopped in the second day of our trip at the Blu Que. We sat outside, the wind was blowing and the mist felt good in the warm sun. The server was excellent, very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The wife and I ordered a cocktail, which were pretty strong! Can not deny a good drink...... More

This place was a bit fancy for what I was looking for. They had a kobe beef burger and suggested it be cooked medium, which I did. It did not sit well with me at all- very heavy, even though I love burgers. The atmosphere is very loud and club style, which I did not enjoy. Overall not my style,... More

We had dinner here tonight. The restaurant was a little run down and dirty in my opinion, with very dim lighting so you could barely see your food. The menu has a good variety to choose from. Our dinners were okay, but nothing spectacular. I think I would've enjoyed drinks for happy hour here more than dinner.

Delicious meal after a day on the beach! Fish tacos, beef brisket and blue cheese fries along with drinks. Great way to end a sunny day on a beautiful beach!

Blu Que Island grill at 149 Avenida Messina, Sarasota Florida. Excellent location and good place to have lunch. Down the street is the beach, on my way back stopped as there are many attractions and eating places. Since this restaurant was close on my way back from the beach decided to try and was very happy with the service and... More

I had the mussels for lunch and honestly they were horrible, extremely fishy. Everyone else's lunch was really great though. My husband and I went back for dinner and it was good, I wasn't crazy about the menu in general, but we sat at the bar and were very well taken care of.

We stopped by for a couple of drinks and to listen to a bluesy-type band who were good. Quite disappointed in the drinks which had very little, if any, alcohol in them. $10 a drink is way too much for a very watered-down drink.
