Another delicious meal!

We ate another wonderful meal here on December 5th. The cauliflower appetizer, I believe called buffalo kisses, which has become my favorite, was delicious. Hubby had the nightly special, pot roast. The portion was generous and he ate every bite! I tasted a bite and it was flavorful and tender. I... read more

We had dinner at Never Blue, wanting a nice place to stop after a couple of hours on the road. Reviews had been good, and we were not at all disappointed. The atmosphere was pleasant, eclectic with brightly painted doors as decoration on the wall. The menu contained mostly "tapas" types of small, but sharable plates. The waiter was helpful,... More

Thank you for making this a nice evening! The food was really really nice! We liked that it had a more modern touch to the traditional dishes. The only tips we have is to have smaller portions on the dessert table, so you can be able to taste a broader selection. The staff was very friendly as well as the... More

Great flatbreads, calamari and a unique cauliflower appetizer. Our server was wonderful, (wish I could remember her name). Long brown hair and recently back in the business. She knew the food and the wine list well, very much appreciated

We've been here several times and enjoyed every visit. Food is always good, and ranges from traditional fare (crab cakes) to genius (a Brazilian beef kabob that was amazing). It's a small plate place, which is great because you'll want to try just about everything. Service is really nice, too.
