Kind of a weird hippie vibe here, but worth a try. We had heard the fish fry was good and it was. The baked cod was really good too. We have been here a few times and they always offer a free trial appetizer before you order and a free ice cream shot after dinner. Great marketing strategy.

I have been here many times with friends and we've always had a fun time. It's a bit divey but with a hometown vibe.

Liked the vibe and the prices were fair. Low ceilings, tye-dye hippie decor, but still got to watch the NCAA tourney while listening to some good tunes. Staff was very friendly, and the longer we were there the more we enjoyed it. I'd sure go back.

I heard they had the best fish fry around ? They had cod or catfish, we all had the cod and it was one of the best fish I have had in a long time. You have to go early or you will not have any where to sit and after you do sit you may wait a while for... More

Grabbed take out - cozy bar, welcoming staff. Fish was perfect: tender large chunks of flaky fish in a crisp beer batter. I tried the " potato pancakes as a side - a tasty alternative! Love the slaw with the unique bite of green peppers. Reserve a seat early during lent or you'll have to enjoy it as a takeout!

Absolutely the worst experience I've ever had. Walked into your establishment and was refused service by the bartender. We have been to Liquid Blues on several occasions and had a good time. But we will never visit Liquid Blues again. Apparently we are not the right color for your bartender. We did nothing to deserve such disrespect except walk in... More

I have been going to this bar for decades, albeit under different names and ownership. It is a fun place with the occasional great band in the corner. The pool table is always busy. The real secret to Liquid Blues is their food. Its all very good, but it's their fish fry that's most notable. Without question, It's the best... More

Aside from being a trendy bar that a person should experience, especially on Wednesday night when they have open mic for local bands---the food is really good. Try the Friday night fish fry. Highly recommended.

I'm sorry to say that after my first good experience the subsequent ones have not been up to par. They make the ordinary good, but I don't recommend going off the beaten path. The service is still good, beer selection OK, but I've been unhappy with some of their other menu items. Like mac and cheese, bland with no cheese... More

You wouldn't expect good food walking into Liquid Blues, but you will be surprised. I asked the waitress about food preparation and she said everything was cooked to order. Well, she was right. Yes, you could get better lettuce in a salad, but the chicken on top was fresh and cooked for my salad, not sitting around to be warmed... More
