While in the area found this place on TripAdvisor. What a great restaurant. Busy for a Sunday but we were seated and waited on quickly. We all ordered off the pub menu. Three different meals all well prepared and delicious. Highly recommend this hidden gem.

Excellent food and great atmosphere. Price is reasonable. Reservations are a good idea as it fills up quickly (because it's a great place to dine).

Busy bar with only one bar tender! SLOW! May die of thirst! Hope our dinner doesn't take this long! Fortunately Nicole was AWESOME and gave us great service and the food was yummy!

I've eaten at Blue Bird at least a dozen times with family and friends. The atmosphere is pretty unique for this area, rivaled only by the Batdorf. Great and spacious bar and it's never too loud to eat on that side. Service has always been steady, friendly, and quick, even with large groups. So the food - you have to... More

Decided to go hear for date night. My first visit and significant other had been many many years ago. Thursday is wing night. Great deal on a dozen large meaty wings, and a half slab of ribs. Again they did not spare ....that half slab was large and meaty...I ate maybe a quarter of it and half the wings. And... More

To tell you the truth, we haven't been here for a long time because we were so disappointed with the food and the service, so this is a somewhat dated review. We found the food to be unexceptional -- the kind of food you can find anywhere. The service was very slow (maybe because the restaurant was crowded), and because... More

Good time.Bangors and mash just OK.Potatoes didn't taste right and they were cold.Gravy was way too salty.The redeeming grace was the sausage-delicious. Cherry infused bourbon was interesting.Service was eh....I heard it sucks on Saturday nights though...more so than other nights. The ribs were just a whole lot of tender delicious meat !!!

The building is charming and the outside deck area is fun and inviting. While I did not order the Bienville Chicken Crab, I tasted this from my husband's plate and wish that I had ordered this. It was divine! They had a root vegetable side dish that was tasty, and a rare find at a restaurant.The outside deck area is... More
