The fried tomatoes were really good. The sushi was okay, I was expecting better. We had soup as well which was very tasty. Very nice waitress. A little bit of a wait.

This is where college kids go when their parents come to town. It has a lot of tables and a wide variety of dishes. It's expensive but it's also got a creative approach to food. Good ingredients make it. Extensive wine list. Reliable for out of town guests.

My wife & I returned to the Blue Heron & it was superb. The atmosphere is nice & laid back. Our server, Colleen, was very professional & knowledgeable about the menu & wine list. I had the lobster bisque which was delicious & my wife had the Ford Greens Salad which she really enjoyed. We both had the grouper Oscar... More

Went here for the first time on a Tuesday night with some relatives who were visiting from out of town. Had to wait for a table downstairs at the bar, but great service at the bar. Place was quite busy for a Tuesday night. Waiter did an exceptional job of explaining the specials and making recommendations. Lots of variety in... More

We ordered the crab cakes and lobster bisque as a start to our dining experience. The Bisque was very good. Rich and flavorful, you wanted to make sure you got every drop. The crab cake presentation was very pleasing. The sauce was a strong lemon mayo base which really added that extra pleasing taste. For our entrees we ordered the... More

Stopped by Blue Heron for sushi on a colleague's suggestion - and was pleasantly surprised by the experience. I did not set any expectations since we were in an area better known for their "meat and 3" type places, not sushi joints. I ordered a couple of rolls ala carte, one of them a custom order because I like sushi... More

This place is quite popular in the area; good for business, or any other occasions. Food is very good, but not spectacular. Well, I am spoiled. Sorry. Always had decent dinner specials, and so was last Thur, and always reasonably priced. The choice of beverages, including beer is fine. Yes, I will go there again. One comment: they always offer...

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...
