Give Me Five
I would say Blue 5 is one of the cooler restaurants in the Roanoke Valley. It almost feels like a local version of a House of Blues restaurant without the touristy feel. They have a great bar with a huge craft beer selection and they are known for having great live music. Also, there are multiple dining areas, including a private room that can be reserved for banquets, parties, etc. The decorations in the restaurant are awesome, with guitars and various memorabilia hanging on the walls.
My dad and I both agreed we should go to Blue 5 more often. The atmosphere is cool, the service is consistently good, and the menu offers a nice selection with quality dishes. I’d also really like to try dinner there sometime. I’ve heard great things about the BBQ ribs and the Shrimp & Grits. Also, the Twin Pork BBQ Biscuits sounds like a genius idea. All this to say, I feel like my trips to Blue 5 are just beginning.
