I've been going to Blue Heron for years and have never had a bad experience. The food is always great, and the prices are right. Of course you can spend $30 on salmon sushi, but you can get several entrees for under $15. The venue is clean and nicely decorated. The staff is very friendly and attentive. This may be... More

I have been going to this restaurant over the past few years and it has always been a favorite. The food is excellent (i love the fried green tomatoes) and the service was great. It is fine dining with a casual ambience...

The Blue Heron staff was friendly and provided great service. The new york strip steak and pan fried grouper were fantastic. The manager made was very nice and did gave my daughter a special cocktail to celebrate her 21 first birthday.

House-made dishes, French-inspired menu.. What a pleasant surprise. The service was wonderful, and the menu is very modern and fresh. What a difference from the typical college town fare. And do you sushi was terrific, we were very pleased.

My family loves sushi and Blue Heron Sushi is amazing. We have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is nice for a family get together or a romantic evening.

Going on a Sunday night is probably not the best. I ordered the duck and it was a little over cooked. My son ordered pasta and enjoyed it tremendously. The wine list was surprisingly extensive.

Best sushi by far in these parts. Steaks and seafood are always fresh and impressive. Blackberry cobbler is a must when in season.

A friend recommended Blue Heron and we weren't disappointed. They have a nice, reasonable wine list and our entrees - seafood pasta and the blackened salmon - were good. I'd have liked to see a little more seafood in the pasta, but it was good and filling. Service was also good and attentive while allowing us privacy.
