“Candidate for restaurant imposible!”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

We were invited here for a Sunday dinner, the food was average to good for the value. The place ambiance needs to be updated it is old and outdated, in reality needs to be on the show restaurants impossible to save it. Service was average but not outstanding.

“First time visit ..... Good!”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

Having heard their advertisement on the radio, we thought to take a chance. The restaurant was clean and quaint, with a nautical flair. Fresh hot bread was first up, followed by a good salad bar. One of my friends had the Seafood Combo, and said it was cooked to perfection and tasted good. Three of us ventured to try the St. Louis pork rib special (all-you-can-eat) @ $9.99. These too, were good, and not fatty. All-in-all, good value for the price. Service was good and the servers pleasant. Appears to be a nice family style restaurant. Would I come back? .... Yes!

“Not a tourist diner”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

Went to the Blue Dolphin as it was recommended in some literature at our holiday home. This place is for locals over retirement age who almost to a person took most of their food home with them in cartons. The steak was the worst I have ever had, described as a London sirloin but I dont believe it was (it came ready cut up) it was cold as were the fries. My wife had a sea food platter which was just about okay. On a plus note the server was lovely and was obviously embarassed at the quality of food she was serving. The interior has a nautical theme which probably has remained unchanged since the 80s. it is obviously popular with the local pensioners who appeared to be enjoying a karoke in the adjoining lounge, the whole thing reminded me of a retirement home.

“Excellent food with friendly service”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

I ‘ve been there for lunch and dinner at different times and you can't beat their prices quality of food and excellent service. The place might be a little outdated but it's clean. The reviewer before mentioned about wanted a $5.99 special and then complained about the atmosphere not being high class enough for her...Really!? Your looking a cheap meal and wanted fine dinning too? what fine dinning restaurants you have dined that offer that? I like to know..I recommended this Restaurant to allot of friends and relatives and all love it. By the way they run numerous specials during the week I personaly love the "all you can ribs" for $11.99.
