Always have had a good experience at Back and Blue but on this visit the quality of meat was considerably different for the same order of filet mignon. Maybe the COVID-19 had some influence on the operations that day but generally would expect standards to be higher and product to be consistent. Overall, service and ambience were very good.

Great attentive service but so loud could barely hear our server. We had assumed a more intimate table having had made prior reservations but we were right next to a busy stair way. Food very good - also very pricey - drinks could be fuller... a $12 drink should be filled to the rim not half way.

Kathleen and her helpers really helped make our evening out with our two moms a night to remember! She was kind, helpful, patient and cheerful! We had a wonderful time, and the one mom who has been facing health challenges and needed a special meal, was made to feel extra special. It meant the world to her to feel like the center of attention. Thank you once again for a fantastic evening! We will be back.

Our dinner was amazing!! My partner and I both got the steak and lump crab and it was the best steak I have ever had. The crab was delicious and our side of mac n cheese was also incredible! The wait staff was extremely friendly and fast and we did not have a single problem with our dinner. I would definitely recommend and will be coming back.

Haven't been here in years because it was about average in the past. My mind has changed and found it to be top shelf this time around. Excellent service, coordinated, professional and friendly. Food hit the mark with every course. Steak was perfectly cooked, tender and well seasoned. I will return a lot sooner this time.

Food and service were excellent. The only thing that I could find fault in was the bar service. We arrived early for our reservation planning to have drinks and apps at the bar. The bartenders were very inattentive. Although it was not extremely crowded and there were 3-4 people working behind the bar it was very difficult to get anyone's attention. Once we were seated our server introduced herself right away and took our drink order. The bread they put on the table was so good we went through 2 baskets! Everyone was pleased with their food, the steaks were definitely the most popular. While we were there we made a reservation to come back for my daughter's graduation in May.

I requested no seasoning on my filet, but it came with seasoning.
However, the Manager was quick to come out an apologize and offer me soup in the interim while they remade my filet.
He also apologized that my date had to eat without me.
Additionally, in the end we also received dessert as an extra perk.

The server was distracted with training a new server.
