“Awful undercooked breakfast”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Have had a blue crush breakfast a few times before and it has always been great. However, after today's experience am afraid just had to give my opinion to help other prospective diners!
The bar was busy when we came in so we did expect to wait for our breakfasts but would say we waited too long for sausages, beans etc to be cooked and when it came, well.........the bacon was so pale and undercooked and there was so much fat on it I'm surprised they had the cheek to serve it. As for the sausage, well that tasted almost raw and whilst I battled through it due to being hungry my husband was so disgusted he hardly ate anything. Yes, we should have complained, but we don't like to kick up a fuss because it can be embarrassing when the place is busy. It's a shame because Blue Crush has the potential to be fantastic but it's not as clean inside as it should be and it really bugs me that the place always seems to be full of dogs, barking as well, it's a food establishment for goodness sake.
If you visit here for breakfast and the bacon and sausage were like ours, don't leave it like we did and insist they cook them thoroughly!
Clean up your act Blue Crush, cook your bacon and sausage thoroughly and perhaps consider a change of chef - sorry, will most definitely NOT be back.

“Amazing Fish and Chips”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

We have just visited Scarborough's North Bay on a windy and rainy Monday in December. Having had an invigorating walk on the beach with our dog we visited the Blue Crush Bar & Diner. We ordered the fish and chips with a side of homemade tatar sauce. The fish were tampura battered and tasted light and crisp. The fish was perfectly cooked as were the chips. The portions size was absolutely amazing for £9.95. The best fish and chips lunch we have ever had. The restaurant has a great view of the North Bay and the colourful beach huts. The restaurant is clean and modern with very friendly staff. Why cant more establishments be like this and serve great food.

“Great Food, Good deals”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

We have visited this bar/diner a few times now. Food is always clean, warm and good value for money. The 2 for a Tenner deal is great value. Drinks are not over priced and there is a great atmosphere in the bar.

Good place to visit , eat and drink

“nice friendly place to go”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Visited on a Saturday after walking round the Marine Drive as have been before called for lunch. We particularly like it as it is dog friendly. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We had the burgers and fries and it was well presented and very tasty. Always seems busy so that's a good sign. Would definitely recommend you give it a go we will return on our next visit to Scarborough.
