Blue Seafood & Grill Arroyo Grande Lunch Dates Review

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Friday, March 31, 2023 Under: Restaurants
Blue Seafood & Grill opened in Arroyo Grande in 2023 and my husband and I have had a few lunch dates here. We've been coming here every few months since they opened! They replaced the previous restaurant named Me & Z, which I regretfully did not get to try before they closed down. The most exciting thing that I've tried at Blue Seafood & Grill is their Cajun Seafood Boil!

They also have other traditional American seafood like the lobster roll and shrimp sandwiches on their menu. I have not had a bad entree here yet! 
Blue Seafood & Grill Arroyo Grande Review
We usually park in the back of the building where they have their own parking lot. Beware, it's a one way in, one way out situation so if you have a really big vehicle, just be mindful of that. However, it's nice to not have to park on the street and have more parking options.

We can enter their restaurant by using their back door from their parking lot and walked in from the patio. One time, I saw a patron and her dog enjoying a meal in the patio so that is worth considering if you have a pet.

The menu was already on the table, laminated, and has a front and back side lined with items. They also have a kid's menu so that is nice for young families.

When we dined at Blue Seafood & Grill for the first time for lunch, they also had a small sheet with a lunch menu. I opted to order the crab sandwich with fries for $15 from the lunch menu and my husband decided to order the lobster roll that came with dirty fries for $30 from the regular menu. (Note: With inflation and rise in costs, the restaurant may increase their menu prices and the prices on this blog entry only reflects the prices that were listed on the menu that day when we visited.) I loved my crab sandwich and my husband thought his lobster roll was overpriced for the size. See my Pinterest pictures below. They do change their menu so be wary of that.

My crab sandwich was like a smashed crab cake between two sandwich slices. My husband's lobster roll had some lobster meat topped on top of one thick bread slice. I think mine was definitely a better deal for the portion but like the grocery store and at other restaurants, the lobster is usually always much more expensive than crab.

Another exciting entree that I've ordered from Blue Seafood & Grill was the the halibut. It was a hair overcooked but it was still delicious. We also liked the sautéed jumbo shrimp as an appetizer. This appetizer dish is what people around town typically talk about. It only comes with 3 shrimps over sourdough bread, but it's still a standout!

We've never had dessert here before but conveniently next door is a coffee shop called Tribe Coffeehouse and it's a great place for some delicious craft coffee. See pictures of Tribe and other coffee shops that I've visited in Five Cities of San Luis Obispo County.
