Blue Sushi Sake Grill unites creative ingredients with energetic vibes, premium cold sake with happy moments to give you a fresh and fun new way to experience sushi.

Order a spread of all your maki, nigiri and sashimi favs from the sushi bar, and throw in a few orders of starters from the grill. We'll stagger your plates so you can savor it all bite-by-bite, and maximize the sushi experience you've been craving all week.

Met friends here from out of town. They loved it! Since we eat at Blue fairly often, we expected nothing less.

About the restaurant
We are Tex-Mex
Our menu is founded in Tex-Mex basics, which are influenced by the border-style flavors of Texas and Mexico. We're especially proud of our homemade flour tortillas, refried beans, chile con carne, fajitas and cheese & onion enchiladas, to name a few. Omaha has made us famous for our basic house lime margaritas, which you can enjoy at the best price during Happy Hour. Our vibrant atmosphere is true to our namesake, which imparts a deep sense of fiery hot energy to complement to our Tex-Mex cuisine.

Service was good, forgot our soup but no biggie. The tuna was clearly old, we've had it before - something was definitely off. It seems like the quality keeps going down. For happy hour pricing - our bill was high given the quality of the food

Everything was great about our visit! The only issue that I had was that the kids Mac and cheese was spicy and there was no way my 4 year old was going to eat it. That was very disappointing because a kids Mac and cheese should not be spicy.

Service was a little slow and we had to ask for a few things more than once. Steak was overcooked. Margarita was not that great. Music was good. We enjoyed being with our friends.
