Bluefish Grill Flemington

The Bluefish Grill reopened in the Stangl Building on the corner of Mine St. I had lunch today and it was really good. Ordered PEI mussels in a Thai broth with grilled bread, delicious. I arrived at 11:45 and by Noon every table was taken. They are in the process of opening an outdoor dining area.

    I was there last week for lunch. The new space is huge improvement over the old, though around the same size. It's spare and modern; more of an upscale feel. The dining room is NOISY. Some sound absorbing panels on the ceiling would be appreciated.

    The menu has also gone upscale. I had the curry salmon bowl ($16.50) and it was excellent. The bill for two was a rather spendy $40. The pieces of fish plus two sides that used to be $8-$11 are now $12-$16. In spite of this they're full. Quite a few parents with young kids, as before. So I guess their formula works.

    The owners (husband & wife) are really nice, hard working people who care about their customers and the town. I wish them the best of luck in the new location.

      Yes, the Blue Fish Grill has moved and now has the dubious distinction of occupying what may well be the ugliest building in Flemington. What a shame. However, I am glad to report that the food is indeed as good as ever. Try the tacos!

        I couldn't agree more about that building. It looks like a miniature version of Eastern State Penitentiary. What were they thinking?

        I didn't know that Blue Fish Grill was moving (our last time there was last May), so thanks for the info, hunterdon22. Their fish and chips are fantastic! And they make a stellar Key Lime pie.
