“Pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

My husband and I wanted to try some place new to celebrate our Anniversary. After searching on-line and reading many Trip Advisor reviews we decided on the Bluestone Seafood Grill. We went at 3pm on a Sunday and upon pulling up in the parking lot we were somewhat skeptical seeing that we would only be the 4th car in there. I assured my husband that it was only 3pm and this place had great reviews. Entering the restaurant the hostess held the door open for us and promptly seated us. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and inviting. We were seated and our waiter, Andy, introduced himself and told us the specials. The menu had a great selection and we were told that the special for Sunday was a soup or salad, entree and dessert for $33. Considering that most of the entrees averaged $26 that sounded like a good deal.
We began with the Hot Seafood Bake that left us almost wanting to lick the plate clean! We each had the cream of crab soup that was delicious. Our entrees included the Filet with Crab Cake for me and the Chilean Sea Bass for my husband. Both entree's were cooked to perfection and the portion was perfect. Dessert was a Hot Blondie that was devoured. We left feeling satisfied and happy that we found this gem of a place.
On Tuesday morning we discovered that the payment of our transaction at the restaurant did not include our tip. We stopped over at the restaurant that afternoon and were shocked to see the parking lot filled and the restaurant bustling with activity! Spoke with the manager and explained what happened. He checked the receipts and confirmed that the tip did not go through. He gave us an envelope so we could put the tip in it and said he would put it in the safe until Andy worked his next shift.
We will definitely return to Bluestone!

“Consistently great food and great service”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

I have visited this restaurant a number of times, both for lunch and for dinner and have always had a great meal. The menu is varied from salads and sandwiches, to small plates, soups and main entrée’s. The seafood selections are a mix of classic standards and unique presentations. I like the Crisfield Stew which is a Chesapeake Bay variation of a Mediterranean bouillabaisse.

Service is attentive and courteous and the wait staff are knowledgeable of the menu selections. The atmosphere is subdued which allows you to have a conversation. The quality ingredients and thoughtful preparation provide good value and the portions are generous. The Bluestone is a great choice business lunch/dinner or a special night out.

“All Around Great!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I've been there for both lunch and dinner. A little expensive, but worth it for excellent food (especially seafood) and excellent service. Nicest restaurant in the area! Also has a very large and seemingly popular bar.

“Great crab cakes, but sports bar attitude”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great crab cakes, but sports bar attitude and the noise to go with it. Staff paid great attention to the locals, but sort of left the newbies alone until bill time
