Out Of the Blue
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 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!
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.
My wife and I took 2 of my clients out for dinner here last night and we all had a great time! The energy level was busy and lively and I think it made my clients feel as ease and a little more carefree. We all shared some of the XL blue crabs and they were amazing! Seasoned perfectly! We also all split some wine bottles since they were discounted for their June specials. We also ended up ordering some steamed shrimp and scallops after we finished our crabs. Everything was awesome - service, atmosphere and food. Great place to entertain clients.
Good food. Good drinks.
stopped in to out of the blue for a quick bite before heading to the grocery store. they changed their oyster special to Wednesdays so i lucked out. ordered a dozen raw oysters and they were the perfect little snack before shopping. i ordered some steamed shrimp to take home for later. i'll be back soon!
My husband took me here for my 30th birthday on Saturday since he knew how much I enjoyed it the first time we came. It was such an amazing evening! We went all out. We ordered a bottle of my favorite wine to start, which was great cause it was 20% off for their may specials. Then we ordered a dozen raw oysters for an appetizer. They were fantastic per usual. For dinner I order the filet that comes with shrimp and scallops and my husband ordered the crab stuff flounder. We both shared the entrees because they were both so amazing! We did ask our server to bring us more of the garlic butter that came on my meal cause it was so so good. Lindsay was our server and she was so sweet and attentive. I felt very well taken care of on my special day. We had the brownie for dessert. It wasn't on the menu but Lindsay told us that it was new and we should definitely try it. Glad we did cause it was delicious. The cooks wrote "Happy 30th Birthday" on my dessert plate which I thought was a nice touch. Overall an incredible night! Cant wait to come back soon!!
Mother’s Day and birthday celebrations
Brought my in-laws here for lunch on Friday and we had an amazing time! Their vibrant atmosphere is my favorite part. There was a decent amount of people in there for lunch. The bartender was busy but she still made us feel welcomed. We enjoyed sitting at the hightop seating. The food was incredible. The crab dip had me drooling. I even ordered one to go so I could enjoy it later. My mother in law raved about the fried oyster dinner. she said it was the best perfectly crispy oysters shes had in years. My husband really appreciated the military discount that they do on Fridays.
What a great evening. Great location, excellent food, and the most excellent waitress. Made sure to tip her well. Will be back. Thank you for an enjoyable evening, and I heartily recommend this restaurant to anyone that would like a quality meal, and a reasonable price, with some of the most friendly employees I have ever encountered in one location.
My family lives here in Manassas and I was in town visiting so they took me to out of the blue for my first time because its one of their favorite restaurants in the area. We got blue crabs and a bunch of appetizers. The blue crabs were super meaty and the seasoning and flavor was incredible. Best blue crabs that I've had in years. The fried calamari and the hush puppies were my favorite appetizers that we had. The fried calamari was so crispy and the sriracha lime sauce that it came with was absolutely perfect! The atmosphere and the table that they put together for us was really nice. Our server Lindsay made us feel so comfortable and well taken care of. I cant wait to visit my family again so we can come back!
It was very busy when I went to out of the blue for dinner with my friends. The energy was very upbeat and the service was still excellent even though I could tell the staff was busy. We shared a ton of appetizers and they were all incredible. We got fried calamari, fried colossal shrimp, fried oysters, seared ahi tuna and some wings. It was a perfect way to share and get a taste of everything
My husband and I were craving some oysters so we went to out of the blue for an early dinner. We got 12 oysters as our appetizer along with a bottle of our favorite wine (J. Lohr pinot noir). The wine was 20% off the bottle for their April specials so that was awesome! For dinner I ordered their red snapper whole fish and it was amazing, such a huge fish. My husband enjoyed the salmon dinner. He really liked the creamy dill sauce that came on top. We cant wait to come back when another craving hits us!
My family and I decided to dine here for their all-you-can-eat crabs on Sunday for my mom's birthday. The food tasted great and ultimately I'd recommend them to a friend, but there were a few things that disappointed us during the visit. At the end of the visit, we asked the waiter to split our checks. This ended up becoming an overly complicated endeavor, so in the end we all had to pay each other's tabs in some form which was inconvenient. My biggest complaint though is they only celebrate birthdays with singing. I haven't gone to many, if any restaurants that don't celebrate birthdays without some type of meal for the birthday person. I wouldn't recommend this place for celebrations, but in general the food was good and the experience was okay.
Crabs were delicious, I’ve been there at least 10 times, service is always great.
THIS WAS OUR FIRST TIME SINCE COVID STARTED AND CAN SAY WE TRULY MISSED OUT EATING HERE. WE LIVE IN ARLINGTON, VA AND HAVE A FARM INMADISON, VA AND ON OUR WAY BACK TO NORTHERN VIRGINIA ON SUNDAY DECIDED TO STOP BY AND GET SOMETHING TO EAT AND CAN SAY WE WERE TOTALLY HAPPY WITH OUR FOOD. OUTSTANDING AND GREAT SELECTION.
WILL BE COMING BACK MORE OFTEN!!!
