“Pleasant place in roanoke”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Hey I liked it. A nice corner bar. The scallops for an appetizer were excellent. And the salmon for dinner was good though many people will find it to spicey. Service was superb.

“Fine food and excellent blues”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

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.

“Best beer in town- food is good too”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

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.

“Good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

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.
