“Overpriced mediocrity.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2011

If this were the only bbq restaurant in the world, it would alright - unfortanetly, it is the only game in the town of Port Angeles. However, this is not the only bbq restaurantin the world; and when the others are thought of when at blue flame, I couldn't help but feel extremly ripped off. The menu is very limited, even for a bbq joint, and lacks some of the essentials - no cornbread? ya kidding me? The lack of variety would be excusable if what was offered was fantastic. It's not. The meat is dull. The salad is a leaf of lettuce. The bbq sauce could have been picked at Costco. And - in place of cornbread - the bread roll is barely bite sized. All of this for more than or at the very least an equivalent price to any other bbq place.

Four words sum up blue flame: worst-bbq-restaurant-ever.

“find another place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2011

prices are to high for the quantity and the quality of food. the chicken is dry and over cooked and the ribs are mushy. seeing how this is about the only bbq joint around, the people must not have tasted good bbq before. they always seem to be out of something the last two times i have been there and i dont think its from seeling alot, they just dont cook enough. i wont be back and will spread the word. i was really disappointed in the food and the price.

“Yum! Definitely worth your time...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2011

My family LOVES the Blue Flame BBQ, not only for the food, but for the casual Port Angeles style. Port Angeles is a come as you are town where suit coats, ties, and high heels are rarely seen. We go to Blue Flame without expectations of wanting something different and we are NEVER disappointed.
Well.. let me take that back - sometimes we are disappointed... because they are not open 24/7!
Call ahead for take-out

“Wonderfull BBQ and Blue Cheese Salad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2011

This place has the best hearts of Romaine salad with oil and vingegar based dressing with lots of Blue Cheese chunks and Red Onions. The ribs are cooked outside in the smokey pit area and are excellent. I drive 70 miles to go there and it is worth it. They use Charcoal or cut wood for the fires. I have tried all of the meats and they are something special. Call ahead for hours open --. Currently open Thursday thru Saturday but may extend hours for spring and summer.

“Has Gone Down Down Hill!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2010

We have been going to Blue Flame for 3 years. The prices are higher now and the portions have been cut in 1/2. I have no problem with increasing prices, but to eliminate more than 1/2 the food you used to get along with it is awful. Myself along with a group of 20 have all given it 3 tries since the increase and all agree. The barbeque is great, but we will no longer return.
