Blueberry Hill in the Delmar Loop is what we imagine a hyperactive ten-year-old would come up with if put in charge of a restaurant. There are collections of vintage Pez dispensers and jukeboxes, a basement music venue called the Duck Room that was christened by Chuck Berry, and a wall painted like Pac Man. It’s a great spot to bring kids during the day, especially with the built-in board games on many of the tables. At night, it’s definitely less kid-friendly with its row of dart boards and wide selection of beers. If you get hungry after a few drinks, they also serve things like mozzarella sticks and burgers, and a gooey butter cake for dessert.
