The atmosphere is like an old juke joint, but that is not a bad thing. The food is Kansas City style barbecue with both pork and non-pork options, and plenty of sides. There is a full bar.

great blues bar and good food. Service was a-one and the staff very helpful. Chicken and ribs were to die for and the wait ime was short considering the place was full.

BEARLY'S HOUSE OF Blues was the best....not fancy at all, many locals go there. They have blues or other music there several times a week. Friendly staff. The best ribs I have had in a long time...fall off the bone. Also great sweet potato fries and Cole slaw. We heard great music too.

We went for the Sunday matinee, which is really more later afternoon. The music was local and outstanding. The trio had a nice rapport with everybody there and they seemed to be really enjoying themselves. We had the ribs which were fall off the bone delicious.

We were absolutely starving and stumbled upon this really cool, fun looking place for dinner. We thought it was closed but were welcomed in with open arms by the extremely friendly waitstaff. I had wings (excellent) and my wife wanted fish and chips, but the waitress recommended another fish dish instead and we appreciated the recommendation. It was good food,... More
