A very cool rock-and-roll themed restaurant, sort of the nucleus of awesome, eclectic U-City Loop rehabilited area. A true St. Louis landmark. As such, the place is always crowded, busy, and can have a long wait, but that just comes with the territory. Knowledgeable bartenders, good selection of taps and bottles, usually a few somewhat obscure and/or seasonal offerings.

Been here a number of times. Sort of kitchy - much prefer places with a little homeyness to them. But good food overall.

Known for the atmosphere and burgers. A fun place to go in a fun area of town. Very busy on weekends. Wide range of patrons, from hipsters to locals to tourists to college kids to families. The Duck Room is a great place to watch a show, and Chuck Berry still plays once a month. Decent beer selection- BMC and Euro standards, Schlafly, O’Fallon, Lagunitas, other American micros, and some Belgians.

A well-known place in St. Louis, where famous people sometimes show up suddenly or secretly. The food is your somewhat typical burger-related food, but the beer selection is surprisingly huge. A+ for the beer selection (and the hope I see someone famous there someday!).

Great food and service. Beer selection was a little weak, but the food made up for it. Great menu and food selection. Can get busy.

A St. Louis institution. Decent selection, but the service is very slow even on week days. But it has lots of memorabilia to look at and great burgers. Beer selection is strong, but nothing too original.

This place is pretty darn cool. There is generally some interesting band playing in the Duck Room (basement area that is a pit and has a toned-down selection of beers... last time I got some Bells and a Rogue Dead Guy in bottles when I saw a show there.) The main floor is a mainstay in St. Louis and they have lots of stuff on tap or in bottle. Burgers are great. Worth visiting.

Its an interesting and somewhat historic kind of place. Food is just your typical tourist kind of place and beer list is usual restaurant kind. If there was a band or something really interesting to see it would be nice.

I’ve been to this restuarant/bar/club at least 60 times over the last ten years, mainly to see touring bands or business lunches. For the traveler, because Blueberry Hill was featured on the Food Network, often come here for the famous hamburgers and music memorabilia that fills the restuarant. I have to admit, I don’t understand the appeal of the burgers, I have had much better burgers at other joints in St. Louis, but the fries, onion rings and other side dishes are excellent. For a place famous nationwide for it’s hamburgers, they are bland tasting. They are large, with large chunks of cheese, but seasoned poorly. The beer selection is average restuarant fare and I stick with local brewers like Schlafly’s. When busy at night, usually very busy on the weekends, service breaks down, food is served cold and its hard to get a beer when seated at a table. At night, the crowd is a mixture of locals, college kids and tourists. When a good band is playing in one of the music rooms, I would not recommend eating here before the show because of poor service. Lunch during the week is best time to come here, Service and food are better when they are serving the local business crowd. The Food Network often features Blueberry Hill on it’s "Best Of" programs, but I would advise the traveler to be wary. Check out Vintage Vinyl if you like to shop cd/record stores.

A pretty cool place to socialize, though true beer geeks will be annoyed by the smoke and darkness. The walls are littered with rock’nroll and yesteryear deco, dead animals, guitars, lunchboxes, etc. The booths lend lots of privacy, and live music is found very often, with Chuck Berry himself taking the stage once a month. Other acts tend to be fairly big, such as Gavin Rossdale (formerly of Bush) and other such acts filling The Duckroom. Beer selection caters to nearly everyone, ranging from macros to micros to Belgians. Food is above average, and is quite award-winning in the St. Louis area. Usually crowded, being part of the St. Louis "Loop" and all. A stone’s throw from Cicero’s and worth stopping by just fo the experience. Crowd tends to be mostly college kids, but can vary wildly depending on musical acts.
