I've eaten at Blue Canoe several times now, hoping to find what it is that people around here are so excited about. I've tried their Cuban Sandwich (not good), one of their skillet meals (better than the cuban, but still not good), their sliders (decent), their Smash burger (also decent) and their pesto pasta (good). Now obviously, there's a lot of stuff on their menu I haven't tried. I've heard that when they have the filet (beef) as their special that it's amazing but I haven't tried it.
So the question is: Why do I keep going back and trying again? The beer selection is phenomenal, easily the best in Tupelo, and possibly the best in north Mississippi. They have a list as long as your arm, and a large chunk of that is available on tap. Another thing they have down to a science is their bread pudding. It's hands-down the best I've ever had. These two things are the saving grace for this place from what I've experienced thus far. I'm gonna keep going back and trying new things, because this place has great beer and because they're getting interesting musical acts to come to town for a change.
