“Good food, slow service in off season”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

We went at a time in the Fall when they were very understaffed and the dining room was closed, so we had a table in the bar. There were limited, but good choices on the menu. We really liked the crab bisque soup and our entrees were pretty good, but not outstanding. The server was friendly, but service was a bit slow. Prices were reasonable. We'll try it again next year.

Thank you for your comments. We strive to provide good food at a family friendly price. The off season we do sever from our lounge. It is not economical to open the entire restaurant off season. We have been working with staff to give good service and be aware of the costumer's needs. I'm glad you do plan to return

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

Excellent variety on breakfast menu. Service was prompt and friendly. Very relaxing sitting outdoors on a sunny cool morning. Did not have to wait in line and not rushed to finish and leave like some of the other places in OC. Would recommend highly.

“Pleasant Surprise for Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Crista and I decided to stop at the Blue Ox Bar & Grill for breakfast on a recent Sunday morning on our way to see Shawna in OC.

I ordered the veggie omelet with home fries and Crista has over-easy eggs with sausage.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Everything was very good and the service was excellent. We will return to the Blue Ox again next season.
