Blue Light Grill & Raw Bar

Traditional but edgy, and casual but cosmopolitan, Blue Light Grill & Raw Bar offers one of Charlottesville’s most unique dining experiences and some of its most happening nightlife.  

For the purists, the raw bar offers traditional favorites such as little neck clams, Alaskan snow crab legs, and Chesapeake Bay oysters.   For the adventuresome, the dinner menu is a playful blend of Eastern and Western influences.  Using the freshest seafood and many locally sourced and artisanal ingredients, popular dishes include the Dragon Style Tempura Mahi Mahi, the Harris Ranch New York Strip, and the Grilled Norweigan Salmon.  

Blue Light also offers an extensive wine list that favors boutique labels from around the world.  Or if you’re in the mood, try one of their signature cocktails like the Diablo Royale or the Blue Light Manhattan.
