We at here twice, the first and last nights of our stay. We had oysters, pasta, fish, and crab cakes. Everything was delicious. They have a nice selection of wine and cocktails. Our waitstaff was friendly and fun. They offer indoor and outdoor dining. We...sat indoors both times, and felt entirely Covid safe. The tables are not on top of each other, the ceilings are high and good air flow.More

The Blue Hen was able to accommodate us as a walk in party of 5. Service was very prompt and wait staff was very nice. While some in our party thought the menu had limited options, I had the crab cakes which were the best...I’ve had. We also had oysters which were super tasty. Would definitely go back!More

We loved having the outdoor patio for our birthday celebration. The hanger steak with roasted veggies and the appetizer cauliflower roasted with a tangy sauce were great. The menu has something for everyone, from kids to adults with a more sophisticated palate.

Great food, and awesome outside seating. They don't take reservations, but they will put your name on the waiting list and text you when the table is ready. Kids meals and regular food is very good, really liked the burger, calamari, and the brisket dish....Ramona drink is very tasty as well.More

Very nice large patio with a lot of seating. Also has fire pit to sit for a drink. Good service. The menu is not large but has a variety of options and everything was very good. We had Hush puppies, skirt steak and swordfish. Unique...combinations with jasmine coconut rice.More

The Blue Hen serves strong (and reasonably priced) drinks, and its menu is eclectic with all kinds of options. We had a little bit of everything—hush puppies, salad, fried chicken and a tamale! The best part is the staff; they’re all really nice, and that...makes all the difference.More

The bartender at a separate local restaurant recommended we come here for dinner and we were glad we did! We hadn’t eaten all day so we’re really hungry by the time we arrived when they opened at 4 pm. Since it wasn’t really dinner time...we decided just to sit at the bar. The bartender was awesome and not only made great drinks but made great food recommendations too! The strawberry fields drink, lobster toast, crab spaghetti, and fried chicken platter were all superb. We were quite impressed and will definitely be back!More

Absolutely delicious! Fun atmosphere, clean and excellent food. Service was really good checked on us a lot and was great with my kids. We had the biscuits (sooo good), beet salad (refreshing and delicious!) and calamari as appetizers. Everyone at the table (myself, husband and...3 kids) loved their entrees. Froze drink was really good.More

Walked in and sat at the bar for a few pre dinner drinks. Lovely, friendly bartenders and the Bitburger and Gruner was excellent. Sat on the patio for dinner -my lamb chop schnitzel was amazing and the wife loved her scallop dish. First class service...and overall a very pleasant evening. Recommended!More

The menu is very affordable, and the staff is very personable. We have been there three times, and each time they have made our stay safe!
