My wife and I really enjoyed our visit to Blue 5. We sat in the mezzanine and enjoyed a very nice meal, good service and a phenomenal band ( Bob Margolin Blues Band). An interesting atmosphere in downtown Roanoke that attracts all an eclectic group of patrons who all seemed to be enjoying themselves. Try any signature dish and you will not be disappointed. We had an extremely good time there and would definitely return the next time we visit in the area.

By far, the best tap handles in downtown. The live music is especially good and unique for Roanoke. The food menu has a lot of variety. Anything from fried oysters and scallop apps to fresh entrees. The Yardbird chicken dish is very good.

Excellent atmosphere, music, beer and food! Wait staff were prompt and attentive...get there early for the live music. The complimentary corn muffins are fabulous as was my portobello!

A varied menu that would appeal to most people. A good range of dishes from burgers to more complex plates. Our meals were tasty and nicely presented. They do not come with much in the way of vegetables (although the menu sounds like they do) so you may want to order some sides.

Beer and wine choices were good.

There is live music from 9.30 pm.

Always enjoy our dining and musical experiences here. My husband loves the choice of 46 different craft beers!
