Blueberry Hill is one of the most popular and famous places in the Delmar Loop, a fun and funky neighborhood filled with unique shops, restaurants and clubs. Blueberry Hill is a restaurant and live music venue that's been open for more than 40 years drawing in crowds from across the country and around the world.

Location and Hours:

Blueberry Hill is located at 6504 Delmar in the heart of the Delmar Loop. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1:30 a.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to midnight. Blueberry Hill is also one of the few St. Louis attractions that's open on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Food and Drink:

Blueberry Hill serves casual fare like soups, salads and burgers. The large menu also includes breakfast items (available all day), vegetarian dishes and specialty entrees like trout almondine, jerk chicken and chili mac. The full menu is available from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with a smaller late night menu served after 9 p.m. The kitchen closes on Sunday at 11 p.m., and at midnight the rest of the week.

The restaurant has a good number of beers on tap including Guinness, Anchor Steam and several Schlafly varieties. There is also a large bottled beer selection, as well as, wine and mixed drinks.

Live Music:

Many visitors come to Blueberry Hill for the live music. Most concerts, featuring popular local and national acts, are held downstairs in the Duck Room. The most popular concert by far was the monthly appearance by rock-and-roll legend Chuck Berry. He played more than 200 shows to a standing room only crowd at the Duck Room one Wednesday each month. He played his final show at Blueberry Hill in October 2014, but the restaurant is still filled with photos and other memorabilia for Berry's many fans.

For more information on the artists still hitting the stage, see the live music schedule on the Blueberry Hill website.
