Stopped in around 8 PM on a Thursday in July -- very quiet. Nice atmosphere, excellent food and a very good beer list. Definitely worth stopping in.

Nice old building re-made in modern industrial chic. Long bar, few high bar tables, and the rest is restaurant seating, including an upstairs section. About two thirds of the people were here just for drinks, or apps, but I had dinner at the bar, and food was very tasty and creative. They advertise 46 taps, but six were marked as out. Bar staff came by to point out an additional six that were also out. Still, they had enough of a selection for me to try beers from at least three local breweries that werenít open when I passed through. The list had nothing whatsoever to do with the beer list they post online. I can see why places like this donít re-print their beer lists that often, but I canít imagine why they canít update their website. Anyway, still a good place for a flight, pint or meal.

Nice restaurant/bar in downtown with several seating levels and live music most nights. Good selection of craft brews on tap with regionals well represented. Service was good when we stopped in for lunch. Food is pub fare with some flair and was excellent. Value is nice for the quality of both brews and food.

Parking lot in the same block, $3 after 4pm. Atmosphere is bluesy upscale restaurant. Bar is on your right as you come. Quite a few drafts, and a fair amount of locals, prices for beer is reasonable. I had the ribs and they were cooked well, but yet sauce wasnít that good (too tomato pasty). Peanut butter pie was good, but the bread pudding was not that good. Some of the food was over priced.

Downtown Roanoke is an apt setting for Blue 5 and its bluesy vibe. The restaurant is large and open with blues decor all around. The beer selection is locally focused with fresh kegs tapped often and an ever-changing rotation. Our burgers were well-prepared and very good. This was about a 10-minute side trip off our I-81 travels, and certainly worth the deviation. This will likely be our standard meal stop on any travels along I-81.

Destination spot in Downtown Roanoke. Featuring 46 draft beers, with more on the way...shhhh. Great Blues bar with live entertainment at least Wed-Sat every week. Food is good, but look for the daily special where you can really find some unique items.
