About Blue Heron Steakhouse
The Blue Heron Steakhouse is located in the thriving historic Jefferson Street corridor. We offer an excellent menu with steakhouse classics and modern Southern fare with specialties such as fresh oysters, the finest cuts of beef, shrimp and grits and more. Our restaurant started as a hand-crafted cocktail bar and consumer demand made it obvious that we needed to expand to a full-service kitchen. The Blue Heron is situated in a renovated home with exposed brick, a beautiful, locally crafted chandelier, a roaring two-sided fireplace in the colder months and an expansive patio for warmer weather. Locally owned and loaded with character, The Blue Heron is a perfect setting for an intimate date, an evening with friends or simply a casual dinner while watching the game.

Blue Heron Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
This was our third time dining at Blue Heron, and every time has been very good. This particular time was extremely good - food, service, atmosphere...
We had the Porterhouse for 2 which is like the steak at Peter Luger's, and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. I have been to high end steakhouses in New York, Vegas, Miami, Atlanta..., and this one was fantastic with incredible flavor and was huge. It was enough for 3 of us! The salad was excellent, and the potato was the size of Idaho.
Our server was Sara, and she did an outstanding job. Very attentive, great personality, and she worked hard and did a great job. If you go there ask for her - she does a great job.
Again, we were very pleased with and pleasantly surprised at how good the food and service were. Can't wait to go back again.
Great prime rib and fillet mignon but the vegetable left a lot to be desired. Order their green beans with bacon and the beans were tough and chewy, waiter offered a replacement and got the broccoli which came out dry a chewy also. Everything else was great.
Disappointed we were the only table that didn't get a bread basket with rolls. Everyone around us had a basket of rolls.
On a whole, our waitress, Brittany, was very knowledgeable of the items on the menu, as well as the specials for the night.
The ambiance was great and dining area was cozy.
The Bibb Avocado salad was supurb!
My husband took me to Blue Heron Steakhouse for my birthday. We ordered the Porterhouse for two and it was fantastic. The steak was cooked a perfect medium and all the sides were very fresh and hot. My personal favorite was the creamed spinach. The service was great and we didn't have to wait long for our food at all. The patio was very relaxing and we really enjoyed the location and the meal. We will definitely go back.
The bar was nice for a drink while waiting for our reservation time. The restaurant was clean and we'll decorated which made it very comfortable. The wait staff was very attentive. Our food was served in a timely manner. The food was hot and tasty and the portions were adequate. Over all we had a good dining experience with the biggest issue being cost. For what we got the tab was high at nearly 145.00 for two people.
Our server, Sara, was so wonderful! She made the experience extra special! We were celebrating a 25th birthday and had the 40oz Porterhouse for two! Everything from the drink (the witching hour was fabulous) to the meal was phenomenal! Highly recommended Blue Heron for any special night you have!
We really enjoyed our experience at the Blue Heron ! There was only one dish that was quite overly salty (Shrimp and Grits) and I would think might benefit from a little more taste testing and we might steer from in the future. This would NOT stop us from going back. We really loved everything else!
Amazing food! Moscow Mule was the best I ever had. Fresh made syrups and juices for their drinks. Steaks perfectly cooked with fresh made sides that were delicious. Giant onion ring appetizers were great. House made steak sauce and dipping sauce for the onion rings were great.
