We stopped at Bluebird for a quick lunch. We each enjoyed wraps and a bag of chips. As you enter, self seating is available. Server was friendly and the meals were inexpensive. The restaurant is comfortable!! It was a nice respite from very raw weather...More

The Bluebird is always good. We've had dinner there in the past. We were there recently for lunch. Lunch is a good choice. They serve in the cozy bar. Not crowded, but still excellent fish. My husband and I each had a whitefish sandwich. Delicious.

This place used to be "the place" to go. Not anymore. Décor is tired, carpet is ripped in many spots, worn & rippled. Whitefish sandwich had tired lettuce on it, whitefish, was nothing special. It included a bag of chips. The Mexican chicken casserole had...More

Since the whitefish chowder listed on TripAdvisor’s menu for this restaurant doesn’t exist on the Bluebird’s actual current menu, we opted instead to share the smelt platter. Many years ago at the Bluebird, that dish was “to die for”. No longer. The smelt might have...More

Menu you have listed is completely wrong and embarrassed me over and over, please remove the ancient and faulty menu from my page. Also, most of the profile info is wrong, where do you find your info on restaurants?
