The BLU Tavern Restaurant is one of the best family dinning facilities in the area. Large selections on the menu at reasonable prices. The décor is older but the place is clean and the service though a little slow is very friendly.

I went there on Feb. 27th with 3 other people, and it was crowded but we should not have had over 2 hour wait for our food. During the long wait, the waitress only came to our table one time and only asked maybe 2...More

Nice place to dine. Good ambiance and not too far from the campground I was staying at. This is an old business that has been well maintained. The food is super.

Our group of 15 came in kind of late and the wait staff made accommodations for us they really didn't have to. It's a steak and seafood place. The crab appetizer is real good. Overall, a good place for the money.

We have been savoring Blu Tavern pizza for more than forty years; it's so tasty that you don't want any extra toppings on it! We were there for Mothers' Day with a party of five people. The prime rib, haddock, Delmonico steak, salads, real fries,...More

We've been there quite a few times and the food has always been very good! Reasonably priced also. The two complaints I have is that they need to remodel a little bit because it seems as though you're walking back into 1980 when you enter....More
