Good take on Greek style food. Big salads and gyros. Have not had a had item off the menu yet. Usually go for lunch, but bar looks like it could be fun.

This restaurant has a very interesting and varied menu, consisting largely of salads, sandwiches, wraps, and pizzas. Our party of four ordered four different dishes and everyone was very pleased with their choice. Not only was the food delicious, but there was also plenty of it.

See above for favorite item. Salad with shrimp and fajita very tasty. Great place for lunch or dinner. Takeout works well also.

We were there strictly for the Mediterranean fare. We started with the three-dip appetizer; hummus, goat cheese and roasted garlic, and mushrooms. Holy cow they were fantastic. It was served with fresh, warm, soft flat bread drizzled lightly with olive oil. So good! My sister had a salad of some sort that she said was great and I had the... More

We visited this restaurant for the second time and the only reason was because my son and daughter in law like it. I ordered the grilled veggie salad. Large chunks of vegetables that were supposed to be grilled. They specialized in pizza with trendy toppings. They aren't special.

I have been several times to Blue Onion, and I am always pleased with their food. I especially love the Blue house salad with vinaigrette dressing, big enough to share with another person.

These guys have been making delicious food for over a decade, focusing on fresh ingredients and good service. Try their amazing flatbread with dips, salads, or tasty pizzas and calzones. Plus they have a nice craft beer menu.

I ordered the grilled veggie salad w/ feta cheese. It was good. We came before the lunch hour rush so were seated right away. Our food came about the right time. Although we were served, other patrons were not. Some even waked out. They need more staff during lunch. Parking is not the best too.
