New Orleans Experience. I frequent Bourbon Blue, and have yet to have a disapointing time. I'm not sure how FatChloe missed "blackened" on the menu, as they serve blackened catfish, blackened redfish, blackened sirloin and blacken chicken. Bourbon Blue is an excellent place for dinner and cocktails, and the fine food is only surpassed by attentive service.
Not worth returning to.
Four of us went for a late dinner on a Friday night. We asked if it was too late to eat dinner and they insisted NO...but we soon found out that it was. The band in the basement was overpoweringly loud in contrast with its quiet rustic looking decor. The clientele at the bar were obnoxious, rude and annoying. Someone actually sat on our table while we were eating, while we watched a drunk girl laying on the floor smoking a cigarette. It might have been ok if they had informaed us before hand that the bar crowd would get rowdy in the dining area.
Food was very salty and greasy. The drinks were good and the waitress was attentive, but it was not worth the $$. We couldn't wait to leave.
could not be worse. The decor is lovely and evocative of New Orleans. The food is the worst imitation cajun/creole food I have ever eaten. New Orleans would be ashamed to have this restaurant in its city. The food was ghastly, with no spices necessary for the dishes. I sampled the menu with my partner and could not find one dish we could finish. Save your money and time. Better to get a pizza delivered.
Great New Place. I too, have been to Burbon Blue many times and I have to say the this place deserves nothing less than a perfect rating. The food is great and not over priced, and the service is excellent. Its nice to finally go to a place that has a unique ambiance! The nightlife at Burbon Blue is great too - they have great live music and great bar scene. I would recommend Burbon Blue to anyone!
I can't believe the editorial review by Lauren McCutcheon. I have been to Bourbon Blue quite a few times (for dinner & drinks) and it just keeps getting better. Obviously Ms. McCutcheon was hoping for sometthing like the Bayou across the street...where for $10 she can get all you can eat crab legs (If you can even call them that) on Mondays. Bourbon Blue is defintely out of her league.
After five long years of no new restaurants in Manayunk, Bourbon Blue arrived with some big shoes to fill, and filled them it has!
