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.
