Have been coming to this restaurant for a few years now and have always had nothing short of a great evening. From large gatherings of 10+ for special occasions, (always book to be sure) to a small group of 3/4 friends, myself and others have always enjoyed our evening. The food is lovely and portions generous, the price is fair... More

I was invited to this restaurant on a friends birthday and, as American burger bars go, it was okay. Service was cheerful enough but the food was predictable and just standard stuff.

Quite pricey for what you get. Portions are small and extras are also pricey. In all it was disappointing and we wont be returning.

Simply Blues used to be really good but in my opinion needs an update. It is not moving with the times.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We love hearing our customer feedback, both good and bad, so that we can find areas to improve on. We do ensure that our specials board is updated with more contemporary dishes, however we find that our classic menu tends to be a favorite with most of our customers. More

I used to come to this restaurant a lot as a child. Decided to revisit 15 years later. It's still as good as I remember from the food to the service and the decor. We had the sharing combo between us as we couldn't pick just one starter and it was great. I had the chicken fajitas for my main... More

Simply B, Public Relations Manager at Simply Blues, responded to this review

Hi Wormey100, having read your review I would like to apologize for your bad experience. The ingredients of our fajitas sound very unusual and out of character with what we normally serve. Please could you email us your bill so that we can investigate further. I have messaged you with our email address. More

My husband ordered ribs and wings. They were cold and greasy with some barbecue sauce poured over. The cajun fries are frozen curly fries. The burger was so disappointing and not edible. It was like a piece of rubber. My childs meal of pizza consisted of 6 chips some microwaved shrivelled peas. The pizza was covered in grated process cheese,... More
