We parked 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.
We usually 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. Once inside, we saw that Blue Seafood & Grill was busy during both of our visits!
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.
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.
The second time we came here for lunch, they didn't have the lunch menu anymore and just the main menu. I ordered the halibut. It was a hair overcooked but it was still delicious. My husband ordered the sautéed jumbo shrimp for his appetizer and shared it with me. 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!
Next door to Blue Seafood & Grill 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.
