“A good night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Me and 5 friends went here last week the food was great we always get the double dealer chicken and ribs, the ribs here can't be beaten. Are waiter was very very polite and actually happy unlike other places where the staff look ready to commit suicide.

“Over rated!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

I had heard Simply Blues was a fabulous place to eat with Food to die for. I must have heard wrong. The restaurant is a shabby American diner. The tables & chairs are so close to each other that its an invasion of personal space. The food was disgusting...my starter was a couple of mushrooms swimming in Garlic Oil. The steak was burnt (I notice they have a disclaimer on the menu stating you cannot return the steak!) & I don't appreciate eating frozen chips. Not for the price they charge anyway! All in all there are better restaurants out there at the cheaper the price.

“I could have done better at home!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I went to Simply Blues last week for a friends birthday and was unpleasantly surprised. The service was slow, the food looked and tasted like it had been bought at Iceland then microwaved, and the drinks were expensive (£5 for a non-alcoholic cocktail!!). I don't think I'll be going back in a hurry!!
