Not a place to celebrate an anniversary. Service could have better. Not enough food for the price but the food was very good.
I would have lot it more if they would have read my comments.
Crabs were good, but my hubby and I thought food was greasy and there was too much breading on seafood. Hush puppies were very good. We've had better prepared seafood elsewhere.
I came from Culpepper with my coworkers to celebrate a long week, well done. A couple of them are from Maryland and grew up eating blue crabs and i told them about the colossal crabs and decided we had to come. Wow they were incredible! We got some shrimp and calamari to go with the crabs but the crabs were even more filling than I imagined. My coworkers said they cant wait to bring their families here.
Came for my anniversary with my wife. My wife and I wanted quality seafood and I knew this is where we needed to go. She got the Rockfish special and she said it was excellent. I had the land and sea which was a filet with shrimp and scallops. At first I was a little disappointed that there was only 2 shrimp and 2 scallops but they were very large shrimp and large scallops and I was exceptionally full after my meal. We enjoyed a bottle of Faust which to our surprise was 20% so that was nice. We had a wonderful evening out without the kids which is hard to come by these days.
Came for dinner with a couple of my girlfriends. They weren't too crowded so the host let us pick where we wanted to sit and we just decided to sit at the bar cause one of our favorite bartenders was working. Go see Lindsay! She's the best! We ordered a bunch of appetizers to split and then after we ordered some oysters and shrimp. The food was awesome and the drinks were superb!
Great seafood restaurant in Gainsville. We went for lunch and wasn't crowded. Food was served hot and tasty. We got a varsity of appetizers and entrees. Will be a fine competitor to other seafood restaurants.
Excellent service! The food was very good also - I had the steamed shrimp and hush puppies. Very tasty!
4 of us. One had a surf and turf dinner that was so pitiful. If you can’t do a small steak 2 shrimp and 2 scallops and make it look like $30 then don’t serve it! Understand food is expensive but that was a total rip off.
Went to celebrate my father’s birthday. Ordered snow crabs and dozen large steamed crabs. Food was great. Parents thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. Bartender was serving us since we asked to be at a table in an open area.
Definitely our go to foe crabs compared to other crab locations in the area. Love getting their all you can eat crabs, but got the dozen since I went with my elderly parents who don’t eat much.
Recommend this place for happy hour too.
The food was great, the service was excellent, and table was nice quiet location.
Our dinner was excellent , but our appetizer was served with the meal and not before as it should have been. Our waitress was very good and not over bearing. Drinks were ok, sangria was ho hum. Overall we would go back again.
When we got there at 7:00 for our reservation the hostess told us there is a 40 minute wait. The same thing she told the people in front of us without a reservation. We went to another restaurant.
$25 for a “lobster and shrimp roll” was too much for what was received. It was more shrimp roll. The hush puppies and mushrooms were tasty.
This place is my go to place when I'm in town for business. I like to come by myself and just enjoy a couple drinks and some great food. I requested a specific table in the bar area because its in this private little cove with a cute crab sign above it. They were very nice about my request and were able to seat me there right away. I enjoyed one of their drink of the week and then by the bartenders recommendation I tired a margarita with St. Germaine liquor in it. it was fantastic! I ordered 2 xl blue crabs and a pound of peel and eat shrimp. The quality of the seafood here is amazing. Can't wait to be back in the area.
Amazing blue crabs! Best I've had in years! Great service and excellent atmosphere.
This was our first time dining at Out of the Blue. It was a little pricey. It was a special occasion so we splurged. Food was excellent as well as the service. We will go back but not very often.
Great seafood, just as good if not better then having seafood at the beach!
first trip and enjoyed this place - went back 2 weeks later for the Wednesday special - 1 lb peel and eat shrimp for half price! And they were big shrimp too - looking forward to another trip, especially on a Wedesday! Servers all very nice - comfortable and crab picking atmosphere.
Came here with my husband for our anniversary. This is one of our favorite restaurants to go to together. We both always have a great time. We order a bottle of our favorite wine, which happened to be 20% off which was great. We also love their raw oysters. If you like bigger oysters you have to try these! For dinner my husband got the land and sea, filet with shrimp and scallops, incredible as always. I got the shrimp and lobster roll which was a new pick for me and it was delicious, really creamy sauce and the shrimp was huge! We requested Lindsay as our server because we always love when she takes care of us. It was a wonderful experience.
Came with the whole family! They were very accommodating for 8 people. We asked for a specific area because we have been here before and really enjoyed the bar area seating. They were super nice about us wanted to move to that section. The service was amazing! The food was even better! We had blue crabs and snow crabs. We also loved the steamed shrimp. Overall a great night out!
Had a lovely dinner out with my husband. We got a nice table in the bar area in this little corner cove, nice and private. We had some raw oysters to start. Our dinner came out perfectly cooked. I had the salmon and he had the land and sea. Everything was great.
Came with some co workers because we saw the deal going on for the 20% off wine bottles and we knew we needed that after a very long day! We got 3 bottles for the table and just had a good time. Really love the Jam Cellars Butter chardonnay! Our server was so fun and sweet, it made our time there even better than we expected. The food was excellent! The colossal fried shrimp was my favorite. I ended up ordering some to go so my roommate could try it.
I saw the happy hour specials posted on the out of the blue facebook page so my boyfriend and I decided to go grab some drinks. We had a couple of their spicy $6 bloody mary's and they were amazing! Then we had the drink of the week which was a dark and stormy. We also enjoyed some fried calamari and clam strips.
Brought my daughters here for dinner and we had such a fun time! We cracked some of the most amazing blue crabs and split some snow crab legs. We were celebrating my daughter getting a new job and this was just the right place to celebrate! We each had a couple cocktails to go with our meal. My favorite was the pink passion. And for dessert we have the lava cake and a brownie. Our server was so sweet she had the chef's write our congrats on the plate. It was adorable!
Went on a double date with our neighbors cause they are new to town and we wanted to bring them somewhere fun and special. We are still loving the 20% off bottles of wine special so we got 2 bottles for the table. Our neighbors aren't the biggest fans of blue crabs so we all just did entree orders. The food was delicious as always. Caroline loved her crab stuffed flounder. She raved about it. We also shared some appetizers and the fried calamari and the sea scallops were a huge hit for the whole table! Great service as well so it was all around a perfect visit.
I had a couple of my work friends recommend this place and I'm really glad we went! I took my mom and her friend with me for some blue crabs. i came once before and we got the large blue crabs and they were awesome. Our server mentioned that they had colossal crabs available so we decided to try them out. Wow wow wow, they did not disappoint! Huge crabs! We ordered shrimp with our crabs and we had to pack them up to take home. We were too full.
Absolutely delicious! Got a dozen XL crabs and they were great. Hush puppies were also really good.
Really enjoyed my time here, as always. The oysters were excellent! The ahi tuna was very good as well. Just stopped in for a quick bite after my grocery shopping
Celebrated my Birthday here with my family last week and we had a blast. The service was awesome! We didn't have to ask for anything, our server had everything before we could even think to ask. The food was exceptional! The blue crabs had amazing flavor and were super meaty. The red snapper whole fish was delicious, it was a huge fish! I am excited to come back for another big event
My husband and I split the ahi tuna as an appetizer. It was so good with the coleslaw and two sauces! We each had the snow crab legs which were so sweet and succulent that butter wasn't necessary. I had sauteed mushrooms and Brussels for my sides, and my husband had French fries. The one drawback was that the fries tasted like fried shrimp.
Came to enjoy the shrimp and oysters specials last Wednesday. Half off!! I really love that Out of the Blue does these specials it makes me feel like they really appreciate their customers. My boyfriend and I got 2 dozen raw oysters and a pound of shrimp and some wine. Everything was incredible! Cant wait to come back next Wednesday.
Brought my son and his friends here to enjoy some blue crabs. It was awesome! The manager brought out our crabs to us cause he heard how excited we were. Super nice guy. We got extra large blue crabs and they were fantastic. The little butter warmers were my sons favorite part. Kept the butter nice and hot through the whole meal.
brought some friends with me after a golf trip. they were very impressed by the blue crabs. we really liked the new IPA on draft. perfect for summer drinking. we put down 4 lbs of shrimp cause the half off special was too good to pass up.
Had a spectacular time here on Wednesday evening with my friend. She came from out of town and i wanted to treat her to a nice night out and it was perfect. I was unaware that there were Wednesday night special for half off oysters and shrimp so that was a happy surprise! We enjoyed sitting at the bar, drinking wine and catching up. The service was great and the food was even better.
Celebrated my 26th Birthday here on Saturday. My best friend suggested this place and I'm so glad we went. It was such a fun lively place. I live out in Middleburg so I don't come this way too often but I might need to make the trip more often! We all had such a good time. I felt so celebrated and happy. The food was absolutely to die for! We ordered a little bit of everything and then just shared it all. The steamed mussels, snow crab legs, lobster bisque, and the scallops were my favorite! The bartender made me a special birthday shooter. It was fireball, apple pucker and pineapple juice and it tasted like cinnamon applesauce. So good! The manager Justin came over and asked how everything was which was very sweet. I will definitely be back with my family next tie cause I know my parents would love this pace too.
Came here for my anniversary on Saturday because it is one of our favorite places to go to together. It was such a wonderful night! We enjoyed some fun cocktails, appetizers, dinner and dessert. The OOTB dirty martini was awesome! The crab stuffed olives were a great touch. For dinner we split the land and sea and then also got 6 xl crabs. I was in a food coma after. Everything tasted so so good! Our server was also so great. I think she was the bartender and also serving and we could tell she was super busy but she still made us feel like a priority. She even had them write happy anniversary on our dessert. I hope to celebrate many more anniversaries here.
We were able to book a last minute reservation for our party of 8 after a graduation ceremony took longer than anticipated. We were thankful to have been able to grab a reservation on a Friday evening. Tiffany was awesome with our table. She had great suggestions and the food was delicious and came out pretty fast considering our party size. I look forward to coming back.
