Description: Blue Fish Kitchen features Great Lakes Fish and locally sourced meats and produce in a beautiful, historic 1895 building overlooking the Manistee River. In summer we feature dining on our deck. Open year round we also have a fun and relaxed bar, or a romantic dining opportunity in our fine dining room. Our second floor banquet space is available for meetings and parties. If you arrive by boat, we provide courtesy dock space and we can cook your catch. Our cuisine is farm to table and chef driven, we do not deep fry, but instead choose to allow the favors of the excellent ingredients we source to stand out on their own. Our bar features craft cocktails, an extensive wine list and Michigan craft beers. And if you still have room, we create all of our family recipe driven desserts in house and fresh daily.

“Poor experience”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

Sunday 5th stopped in decor nice. Food the worse I ever had. Party of four each ordered different. No SEASONING, NO FLAVOR. KITCHEN slow order took over 55min to get meal, the place was empty when sitted and started to fill over the next hour. Don't waste time or money on this stop.

“World Cup ”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Our family wanted to find a place to watch the World Cup. Stumbled on BlueFish and we were thrilled. First, the decor is modern and tasteful-more what you'd expect to find in a large city. We sat at high tables in the bar area with a great view of a large flat screen TV. The waiter was friendly, prompt. We ordered mussels, a sausage tray, and a charcuterie tray--all delicious and attractively presented. The craft beer was very good, and our waiter was knowledgable in suggesting selections.
We've been vacationing in the area for decades and were impressed to see a restaurant of this caliber in Manistee. We'll definitely go back!

“Excellent in Many Ways...”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Visit to Manistee, MI, for a bit of shopping (Ideal Kitchen...love that shop!) and inquired of the owner on a good place to eat downtown. She recommended Blue Fish as her #1...I see why. The interior is great: modern, spacious, overlooking the river with an outdoor deck and beautiful bar! The service was excellent. Great brews on tap. Tough decisions as the menu is very inviting! Our choices were excellent. We can hardly wait to go back...and we would order the same again they were so good ... but now we are anxious to try another offering. We did not feel prices were high because the quality is outstanding. (you get what you pay for?)

“Mixed experience”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here on June 30th. Enjoyed the outdoor seating by the river. I ordered the lemon perch and it was quite good. My husband ordered the special, a Cajun perch served over pasta. His fish was so over salted it was inedible. We were told by our server that the Cajun fish is supposed to be salty, we explained that it wasn't just a little salty but extremely over salted. She did not apologize but preceded to replace the Cajun perch with the lemon perch. We were shocked that no one even acknowledged the fish was inedible. We will not be back
