    The whole experience, from the welcome at the desk, to paying the bill was outstanding. The service was attentive but never overbearing, and the food was delicious. The team really seemed to be loving their jobs. Well worth a visit.

    Loved it. Food fantastic. Ambience great. Music was absolutely wonderful. The Only downside was the volume of the music. Soooo loud , too loud which made conversation very difficult. Had to shout to be heard. Ok in a nightclub but not fun in a restaurant. Shame cos it is a great place. Having said that I will be back. The Service from staff was outstanding. We felt very welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for a great night out. Did I say the food was delicious! It really was. I had the salmon and friends had the pork. We all loved our meal and loved the music and atmosphere. Just wished there was volume control.

    Really great food and great atmosphere. Love the decor and the fact that you can come here for a family meal or an adult meal and be equally comfortable. Everyhing was good burger, salad, ribs, corn ribs, squid, etc.), but the standout was the fried chicken. So moist and dripping with goodness in the middle, while being super crunchy on the outside. The chips were actually worth the calories too. And the skillet cookie dessert with ice cream dissolved all of the boys at the table into happy puddles of appreciation. Nice mocktails and cocktails, friendly and prompt service.

    We booked the private dining area for my sisters birthday. excellent area for us would definatly recommend for a big group (there were 10 of us) as its a large oval table so no one is stuck at end of table or left out. We will be back for our girlie lunches. The food was lovely. Staff very friendly. Whats not to love

    The staff are always very friendly at the blues kitchen and I can't get enough of those buffalo chicken wings!!! The corn bread is to die for but very filling so be prepared 😋 you can always take away anything you don't finish.
