“A great place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2008

The Bluebird has been the restaurant of choice for my family for many years. I alternate between the prime rib, which is always hefty and generally a juicy, well-prepared cut of meat, and the Bluebird Chicken. This dish, and some similar dishes (sweet and sour chicken, strawberry chicken, etc.) were introduced by the restaurant's current owners, who are from China. The Bluebird Chicken carries a bit of spice with its sweetness and is very intriguing. As a previous review mentioned, there is a lot of it, but I certainly don't see this as a negative. You will definitely need a doggie bag for most of the Bluebird's entrees. My wife likes the Chicken Louie, which is a chicken breast somewhere beneath a pile of shrimp, crab, avocado, and hollandaise sauce. The rolls arrive warm and soft and taste great. I take the raspberry vinaigrette with my salad and it is the right mix of sweetness and tanginess. Most entrees are accompanied by a side of mixed vegetables and a choice of potato or rice. I usually go for the mashed potatotes and can vouch for the fact that they are not prepared from potato flakes. The fries are also good. My favorite drink on the menu is the ironport; I have no idea how they make it and the taste is hard to describe other than to say it is kind of rich and spicy, but it is interesting if you want to try something new.

The ambience in the restaurant is another plus. The main floor is all dark wood and mirrors from the Bluebird's earliest days and is quite charming. It can be a bit noisy but that is still my favorite place to sit. The various dining rooms off the main floor are each decorated in their own way and are comfortable. The front of the restaurant is flanked on one side by a long soda fountain and on the other by a candy counter, both offering excellent sweets.

In short, if you want something unique and far removed from the chain restaurant experience at a fair price, try the Bluebird.

“Come for the decor, go elsewhere for food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2007

This restaurant came recommended by our parents, and we were ultimately lured in by its apparently true-to-its-1916-founding appearance, including a vintage ice cream and soda fountain. However, when the generic, cafeteria-style dinner rolls arrived, we immediately suspected what would be confirmed by the arrival of the subsequent courses. The house salad was dry, bland, and surprisingly monochromatic, served with oil and vinegar that remained in their caddy due to a layer of floating crud growing (?) in the vinegar. The Bluebird Chicken entree, supposedly served at this restaurant since 1916, was over a pound (not an exaggeration) of cheap, boneless chicken, which was breaded, fried, and doused in an unidentifiable red sauce. The dish looked and tasted precisely like what you might get from a bad storefront Chinese restaurant. Unfortunately, instead of providing a unique local dining experience in a historic building, the Bluebird's trademark appears to be inordinately cheap food, with quality to match.

“Bluebird in Logan, Utah, is a charming, old-fashioned eatery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2006

We stumbled upon the Bluebird on our way through Logan, Utah, and had a good lunch. On Main Street, it is easy to find. It was established in 1914 and maintains old-fashioned charm. There is a marble soda fountain and also an equally antique-looking candy counter, in addition to the dining area. The wait staff are pleasant students from Utah State University. Incidentally, the trip through Logan Canyon provided incredible scenery. Member, Spokane, Wa.

“Cheap & lots of food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2006

This is by now means gourmet, it's home cooking with hearty portions for a very fair price. The room(s) are interesting in their depiction of Logan history. Small lunch counter at the front serving great shakes and other fountain items. Also a nice assortment of homemade chocolates. Server was very personable and provided excellent service.
