A bit noisy, but a good local choice for dinner

After inquiry where we were overnighting at the Topeka Hampton Inn, we drove about 5 minutes down the nearby main Street to the suggested Blue Moose Bar & Grill for dinner. We both ordered a microbrew from Manhattan, Kansas which was quite good. They offered a number of local microbrews as well as... read more

After being recommended by our hotel we tried this restaurant. Service was very poor. Slow, slow, slow. I had to ask three times for the check. Food was average and prices too high. I would not go back or recommend.

Took my wife and her Mom out for Mother's Day. We all enjoyed our meals, but the service was slooooow. We ate early, so a crowd wasn't the problem. Service at our table seemed like an afterthought. Wines were overpriced. The dessert sampler was forgettable. Probably won't go back. Manager: hire a consultant to educate your wait-staff. They need it... More

Great menu, great service, comfortable roomy tables, kind people, pristine cleanliness... and we were there for a jam-packed lunch. I expected a typical ho-hum casual dining experience, but wow. I need to go back many more times, just to try everything on the menu that made me drool. ... great find. top shelf.

My family and I love going to the Sunday brunch at Blue Moose. They have everything you could possibly want for breakfast and lunch. The menu is so vast that it makes it hard to decided what to get......and all of it is excellent! You can also get special items made in the kitchen at no extra charge, eggs Benedict,... More

This was a regular spot for us when we lived in Topeka for 6 months. Good quality food and great drink selection. Perfect place on a cold winters evening for a glass of wine. When the weather was warmer we would do sunday brunch and mimosas out on the patio. It can get crowded during the week so make a... More

Blue Moose has great variety- so with a group that can't decide, it's helpful. I've never found the food to be exceptional- it's good, but a bit pricey for the value. Service has always been excellent.

Had a business dinner with a large group. They were fast on the service and very fun to our group. Food was good. I had a salad with salmon and it was fresh. Others seemed happy with their meals as well.

We arrived at 11:00a.m. on Saturday and the doors had just opened. The hostess was friendly and my group were seated immediately, to be expected since we were the first to arrive for lunch. Our waitress was very attentive and checked on us frequently even after we were finished with lunch and just chatting. She kept our beverages filled and... More
