Our server was terrible …no personality and poor service. Our food was eh. Not terrible but certainly not what you would expect for the price. We went with good friends so we enjoyed ourselves but we will not heading there again any time soon

Service was slow and our server was more attentive to a table of young girls. My $9.50 baked potato came with 2 frozen ball of butter. Try refrigerated butter, it wouldn’t even melt on my potato. Also $150.00 for 2 people without any alcoholic beverages is not a good value

Sat with unfilled waters, needed silverware, etc...waiters basically forgot about us. The busboy was more helpful than our waiter (who was more busy training another waiter than attending patrons). Entrees took excessively long to arrive. My pink hamburger had to go back and another one never arrived. Finally cancelled it since my family was finished eating and I had no food, so I left without a meal since everyone else was finished. This was our Father's Day meal and my daughter had driven all the way up from Philly to meet us and it was not at all enjoyable. Unfortunately, I left hungry and we all were disappointed and irritated. The restaurant was not full at all, so it's not like it was crowded. If this had been our first time at Blue, we would never go back. It will be a while before we try again.

Exquisite dining experience - the best yet at a consistently high-performing restaurant. Patrick, our waiter, was among the best I've ever experienced (rivaling my previous 'best', a waiter 17 years ago in Hawaii at a Ruth's Chris).

An appetizer of calamari was the best I've ever enjoyed. Chilean Sea Bass - cooked perfectly. And the trademark dessert, Bleu's Hula ice cream cake is a must try.

Food not so good. Pricey for experience. Front desk did not know what was going on. Seemed confused. Waited at leat 10 min before we were even acknowledged. Major dust in the slats of women's bathroom.

The food is fantastic! My dad said the reuben was the best he's ever had. I got the chop salad and it was amazing as well. They make an excellent martini too.

Excellent food and service; lobster mashed potatoes was a little light on mashed potatoes,- but an excellent dish nonetheless. Good portion sizes, good menu; would definitely return.

We have been going to blue Grillhouse for 8 of our 9 years of marriage. Our experience has been outstanding in the past. They knew who we were when we used to walk in after I said my name. (1)Last night we were asked if we wanted inside ot outside dining. Our table is always known due to the fact that I send flowers for the table. (2) I ordered the 14 oz ribeye. It was very sinewy, very tough for a ribeye. (3) We always look forward to our wonderful desert. The Maui ice cream . They were out of it.
Not sure I will return next year.

Dined on the patio for our 40th anniversary. Professional, helpful, friendly staff. Our 3 meats were requested medium but 2 were overcooked & 1 undercooked. Everything was exceptionally tasty though . They have a varied menu & serve huge portions. Loved it!

Celebrated a birthday! The brunch experience was fantastic. We had a nice socially distant table for our group. Nice selections on the menu for brunch and the food was great. Our server was very attentive with a lovely personality.
The atmosphere is elegant yet comfortable. We had a wonderful brunch experience!

Overall experience as expected since we dine here frequently. Food was good but not exceptional. High priced bone in ribeye was well prepared but bland. Chop salad was large and well prepared but again, somewhat bland. Key lime pie desserts were perfect. Drinks were good but small for the price. Prices were a bit high compared to other local high end steak houses.

If you are looking for Outdoor Dining then Blue is the place to go. They also have great indoor dining with great staff.
The Blue Grillhouse has been one of our favorite restaurants in the Lehigh Valley.

Service was excellent and rewarded for same. French onion soup was average; broth weak on flavor, not much onion content. House salad flavor was average, balsamic dressing was bland, colder greens would have been a plus. Salmon entree was excellent, superbly prepared and snap peas and red peppers lent a great assist. Cowboy ribeye was prepared very well though it could have been served a bit warmer. Side of fries were excellent, just the right amount of salt seasoning.
First time here since it was the Candlelight Inn (a long, long time ago). We’d go back again, but no rush to do so.

Food was delicious! Service was excellent! Price of food is a little much, but we were aware of that before we booked our table. The menu is small, which I like but seemed like 60% of it was seafood. I do not eat seafood so I would prefer some more options.. Did not like that you cannot reserve an outdoor table. We reserved our table online and arrived half an hour early hoping there would be room on the outside patio and it would have been an hour wait. Bathrooms were nice and clean.

Disappointed int the Lobster roll I got, very little lobster on it, and for 20 bucks I feel there should have been more on the sandwich. Also the lobster bisque had one small piece of lobster in it

The service was great. Our waiter introduced himself and a new employee in training with him. We were promptly given water while we could peruse the menu. Waiter returned for drink order and food order if we were ready, which we were. Hope when the food was served, it was a nice presentation and also tasted great. We were not rushed but were frequently asked if everything was fine and if there was anything else they could do for us. Overall, good experience.
