“We come here every time we are in Sarasota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

My wife and I love to go to Sarasota at least once a month. When we are in Siesta Key, this is the restaurant we go. The food is excellent. We usually order ribs and pulled pork. Besides the good food and service you are one block away from the beach.

“disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Had walked past Blu Que Island Grill during the day and spotted a pig being bbq'd. Large sign advertising Sunday special was Pulled Pork sandwiches so that tempted us.
I went for the special, husband chose 1/2lb pulled pork with potatoes & veg.
Sandwich was a big disappointment - very small roll with decent helping pulled pork but very bland and lacked flavour. Husband got decent pile of pork but small dish veg and only small helping potato.
Restaurant was quiet as most people at home watching superbowl - wish we had ordered pizza and stayed in too.

Delicious food and great service! Maureen was a great server. Low country shrimp and grits are spot on! Will be back!

“Good food in a fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Good food, good beer, good music. A great place to spend some time in Siesta Key. Nice happy hour specials too. Try the pulled pork...and sample all the sauces.
