“Great food in historical building”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Had dinner here on a weeknight when visiting Frisco with family. They sat us upstairs which has an "attic feel", needed to sit in the larger area that had ventilation (basically an open door). No windows. Was "stuffy" when we first got there but as the evening temperature dropped it became comfortable. We were the only table up there (had 9 people). Would probably had preferred the lower level. Our meals were all delicious. Someone commented it was the "best trout" they have ever had. The steaks were tender and seasoned well. Desserts are all made in house and tasty with generous portions. Would consider a visit just for dessert because we were too full to appreciate it. After dinner we did walk through the bar area, spacious and looked like good place to hang out for a drink. The original wood bar facing is there and awesome.

I ordered the buffalo short ríbs and my husband ordered boar chops in a wine reduction. O am not that into game but they were delicious. The meat was so tender it cell off the bone. Nice wine selection.

“Good food and nice wine/beer selection”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

The Blue Spruce Inn was recommended to us by a local. We chose to eat in the bar area where you could order off of either the dining room menu or the bar menu. The food was excellent and they had great choices of wines and beers to choose from

“Not what it used to be”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

I remember going here a few years back and it was excellent. Not sure if they've had a change of management, but it's just not that good anymore. Service was incredibly slow, and it was a Tuesday night with less than half the tables filled. It took about 15 minutes to get a cocktail and a bottle of wine, which should have taken less than 5. While the scallop appetizer was quite good, the rest of the dishes were just ok. My wife and I both ordered the trout almondine, and it was too dry and fishy tasting, particularly the piece my wife had. We asked one of the staff to send the waitress over but she didn't appear for another 15 minutes and that point my wife was in no mood to get another dish as most everybody else was nearly done eating. The entire experience was not what we are used to. We won't be back.

Last note. If you are a wine person, their list consists of wines that you could buy at a grocery store, and the stemware is terrible.
