I love gluten but it doesn't love me. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that they have a very good selection of gluten free food. I had the spinach salad with feta cheese instead of blue cheese and also had grilled chicken added to...More

We went as a family saturday evening for dinner. The place is nice and the service was good. The food was ok. The menu has these super flamboyant names for the dishes but they were not that exuberant. We were expecting more.

Our perineal favorite, the great selection of small plates usually turns into a lovely meal. But the beet salad and crab cakes seemed a little "off" their usual superlative. Not giving up, though. Still a great experience. The scallops with grits and the hummus were...More

Never Blue is an interesting restaurant. Quirky decor with innovative combinations and twists on traditional dishes. Very tasty and a good place to experiment with new flavors.

We heard good things and wanted to try it. The place is cute and service was great. We had some tacos for dinner, and they were good. We are used to authentic street tacos, so we knew they'd be smallish, and were cool with that......More

Thank you for your review! The street tacos are actually made in the traditional way of dipping half the tortilla in canola oil to make it pliable which is traditional in Mexican street taco culture. We can't wait for you to try the tapas! We...More

Never Blue is a non-traditional tapas restaurant. The word Tapas translates to small or little bites. We offer small plates of a variety of cuisines from around the world and also offer entree portions of some items. We have an extensive list of vegetarian and gluten free items, as well as soups, salads, sandwiches, chicken dishes, beef & wild game, seafood and much more. We have a wonderful dessert selection that we make in-house along with all of our ice creams and sorbets. We have full ABC Permits and offer an amazing martini and margarita list. We have 12 local beers on draft, and a very inexpensive yet diverse wine list. We have an inviting dining room along with garden dining in our enclosed garage and outdoor patio dining as well. We are open Tuesday-Saturday- 11:30 am to 9:00 pm for lunch and dinner Sunday & Monday - Closed.
