Welcome to Bethany Blues

Every restaurant has a rhythm to it. The sizzle of the kitchen, the laughter and banter of the staff, the sound of clinking plates as they are taken to tables or subsequently removed. The rhythm makes a melody and that gives way to a song that becomes the heartbeat and culture of the restaurant itself. From it’s inception, Bethany Blues built itself on a culture of forward motion.
Bethany Blues is synonymous with the imagery of comfort food—barbecue holds those southern roots that speak of connection and comfort. Blues’ is devoted to their innovative spirit in and out of the kitchen.
