I found myself at The Blue Jay on a cold snowy Saturday after noon with my wife and young son for the first time. We had driven by this place many times and never considered it. It was very slow (only one other couple at a table in the dining area). Though due to the loud screaming and hollering (thus the 2 for atmosphere)coming from the bar area it was pretty busy in there. The fact that it took 40 minutes from order to reception of our dinners was further aggrivated by the fact that a simple order of Coke was so watered down it was nearly clear and the waitress (young woman with a pleasant attitude) inquired if our order had been seen or started to the cook and his reply was simply (seemed to be a greek accent) "Have patients I'll get to it when I feel like it". This was about 30 feet away from us and was easily heard as the music wasnt bellowing out of the bar at the time. The young womans appology and plesant attitude saved this place from a 1 grade in service. Menu has a decent variety of seafood and meat dishes along with slight pasta options. The kids menu was bare, only 3 or 4 options. Portions were decent and tasted good. The prices werent bad nor were they great. The location is nice if you want to take a ride to the middle of nowhere. Sutton is not known for its shopping of memorable locations. Not a horrible place over all, the music and drunken screaming could be toned down and have the chef do his job instead of flirting with the young waitresses and get to work. If these adjustments were made it would definatly inprove my opinion of this place. Until then I wouldnt recommend.
