Blue Monday - Restaurant in Blue

Hello. It's Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Last Monday, I goofed and forgot to place the link in for Mr. Linky. I really got made at ME, but you folks are so kind and understanding, that I had to forgive myself! Thank you for being patient with me and for returning to link in later.

Blue Monday is a bunch more fun when you visit the ones participating, and they come back to visit you. I really appreciate comments!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love seafood, and I'm always on the hunt for a good place to eat out. A new restaurant opened not too far from where we live, and we set out to have a good meal. I was super thrilled to find all of the Blue to share with you! Just look: the outside has a big, Blue sign.



Inside, a Blue mural takes up one full wall.



This huge fish is part of the wall mural shown above. Lots of Blue.



Here's two shots of the Blue bar.






This aquarium is right inside the front door. Even the some of the fish are Blue!




This is a side view of the aquarium.



Why didn't I show you pictures of the great seafood we had? Well . . . it really was quite awful. If you think about it, the shots of the empty bar shouts out that this restaurant is a dud. Sad, huh? (sigh) I'll keep on looking.

Happy Blue Monday!

You're right: You find blue wherever you go. I hope you keep that keen eye for blue for many more years!

The boyfriend and I love seafood, specially fresh water fish.

If you visit the Philippines, I can recommend a lot of nice restaurants.

Lina Gustina said...

That's too bad as the restaurant has an attractive blue look.
Hope the restaurant will hire new chefs :)

Maria Gagliano said...

We haven't been to a restaurant like this in waaayyyyy too many years. Well at least the place is beautiful. Sorry your time there wasn't amazing

Marice said...

Love their signage! But sorry to hear that they dont serve good food.

Sleepshort said...

Blue-min lovely shots, blue-min awful grub. That's life I guess.
Have a good week.

Too bad the restaurant was a dud. We have been disappointed in the past too. What is really sad is that I am sure the owners spent quite a bit of money on the construction of the place, but with an empty bar they will have a long way to go to cover their overhead. I would not want to be in the restaurant business because it's a tough one. They certainly have some nice blue accents though. Thanks for hosting Sally.

Big Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

So sorry you were "blue" when you left that restaurant. Good food would have been nice... Fun pics, though!

You are the best BLUE-FINDER I've ever known....:))
So sorry the food wasn't good. At the prices they ask, the food should be good everywhere.

Eden said...

Beautiful place and lots of blues there.

Happy Blue Monday!

Ann said...

This place has great atmosphere--sometimes that's really important. I'm sure the food was good, we are always on the hunt for somewhere new.

AnnA said...

Hi Sal!
Great blues from the restaurant!
I will celebrate the late beginning of the spring with some blue flowers. Rejoice!
Happy Blue Monday!
best wishes,

Beautiful blues! The restaurant ambiance is lovely to see with all its blue, especially the marine life. On the west coast, we have Fish House Vera Cruz. The scallops and lobster are wonderful. I love seafood, too.

LV said...

I enjoy certain sea food, but not many places to find it.I cannot eat anywhere it has fishy smell or taste.At least, your outing was not a complete lost call, found nice blues.Trust this week will be a good one.

Riet said...

Hi Sally. Another find of blues for you this week. You always manage to find them. I am also always on the lookout for blues because I love Blue Monday and I don't miss very often as you will know.
Happy Blue Monday Sally and have a nice week.

What a beautiful mural. Love how they used the fish as part of it! Blessings, Debbie

Karen said...

It's really well decorated! Too bad they didn't have the same enthusiasm for the food they serve!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I miss you! We need to make plans to go out to eat at some point. I'm up here involved with house repairs. But I would love to drive down and take you to lunch at some point. That would be fun.

XO,

Sheila

Leovi said...

Wonderful place with delicious blue!

barbarah said...

Love the mural and all the blues. That's too bad that a restaurant with an "A" for atmosphere gets an "F" for its food. :-(

Bubbly said...

I like the ambiance of blue.

Terie Cornelio said...

I visited a restaurant in Old Town Alexandria with lots of blue lights so immediately I thought about using it in a post, then I went inside and the music was not good, the food was worse, it smelled bad and just had a bad vibe. We left. But the blue lights behind and under the bar area were so cool!

Joy H said...

Looks like a cool place and love the aquarium. Have a Happy Blue Monday Sally!

Jesh St Germain said...

I love blue fish! See that the blue hasn't come the pic here, but is seen on my blog:) Happy Monday, Sally!

Joyful said...

So many blues. Hope you're having a great Monday!

Anni said...

I love seafood, too! My favorite!

My husband always enjoy saying:
I'm on a seafood diet, I eat everything I see!

Happy Blue Monday!

Salmagundi said...

Sorry about the dud of a restaurant. Don't you hate spending money and not get a good meal -- the blue is pretty, however! Sally

Christian Weiß said...

A very nice blog, thanks for the comment.
