“We won't be back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

As a previous family favourite of ours we've seen Blue Skies decline over the last 2 years (4 visits) - to the point where we won't be back! Our final visit were experienced mediocre service and a 2 hour wait time with less than 15 guests in the dining room for lunch. There are plenty of great family dining options in Hobart - this is, sadly, no longer one of them.

“Great food, great service, and scenic location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

Blue skies is located on Hobart's waterfront surrounded by boats. Offers a varied menu of tasty dishes and an impressive wine list. Nice nautical decor and pleasant and friendly staff. Makes a terrific place for lunch or dinner and to meet up with friends.

“Good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

They were accommodating to the fact we had no booking, staff very attentive. Liked the use of local produce, risotto was lovely with the huon valley mushrooms. Lovely view as well.

“Popular waterside eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Be prepared for a noisy night as there are always larger parties celebrating here. The food is really good. The staff very obliging. Best to go early.
