First of all...It is not the Blu Bar and Grill anymore! It is now called 585 Rocin Burger Bar. For the amount of food you get and the time it takes to get it...ridiculous! We order an appetizer and was told the kitchen is backed up, so it may be a little bit...we order dinner and still no appetizer! The... More

Greeted by a very friendly and welcoming host. Seated right away (not busy at all) and ordered drinks. Pretty limited menu which was fine and better than a menu that resembles a book. The food came out quick but my wife ordered chicken nachos and she said it was hard finding any chicken on the plate. The food was average... More

Went there on a slow day, we were the only party of about 14. Bar tender not was not well organized, looked overwhelmed and was not well polished in her skills at bar tending or customer service. Started out asking for a draft beer which they were out of and not able to refill that day. Again asked for two... More

I had the black & Blu burger with mac salad. It was very good. It has a very nice atmosphere inside. The outside patio looks very nice.

We went to Blu for the first time for dinner. It's a sports bar type atmosphere and we were seated right away. The menu has some very interesting items on it. One of the appetizers is fried pickles, one entrée is fried chicken and they also have a cubano sandwich. I ordered the meatloaf and my friend ordered prime rib.... More

I have had a mixed experience at this place. Sometimes it feels like they are not firing on all cylinders. But tonight I had a very nice experience and I want to recognize that. Being out in the suburbs of Rochester, New York is like being banished to a hillbilly camp in rural Alabama. When a place like Blue opens... More
