We hosted our corporate Christmas Dinner at the Blackshop for 34 guests. The appetizers and meal were great as was the service and atmosphere of the venue. The guests left happy and overall we had a great event. Now booking for 2014....

Went for a business lunch mid week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food is quite varied in the choices and several dishes are uniquely prepared. The service was friendly and quick enough for our needs. I was coming from out of town and they welcomed our request to utilize the table a bit longer than normal and take advantage of... More

Pretty good food in a convenient location for highway travelers; but it can be noisey. We have eaten here a few times on our way to events in Cambridge, St. George or Stratford. The food is always good but the main room can be a bit loud. Service is OK and they have some outdoor tables under cover and others... More

Went for our 33rd anniversary. Our first, but certainly not last visit at that restaurant. My wife had the Peppercorn Steak and I had the Top Sirloin, the best I ever had anywhere on this planet, and I indeed have had that dish at quite a few restaurants on both sides of the Equator over the past several years. Our... More

Always a treat! Been here several times with friends. On the way to Chicago this time so we stopped in along the way for lunch. Service is superb! Atmosphere is wonderful! Started with a half litre of the excellent house white. Yeah, I also had a Brick dark draft. Then the food! Menu is amazing! We figured we'd settled on... More

My friend and I were shopping in Cambridge and decided to have lunch before heading back to Hamilton. We were not familiar with the city and I have celiac disease so I went to my trusty website "Celiac Scene" and did a search of Cambridge restaurants offering gluten free options. We decided on Blackshop and were not disappointed. When we... More

The Blackshop has always been our "go to" restaurant for special occasions. We were celebrating a birthday with lunch, but this time we were sadly let down. The service was slow, though friendly. However, the waitress did not check promptly after serving each course, so things like lemon with our two seafood dishes did not arrive in a timely fashion.... More

We had a gift certificate from a charity auction and decided to use it for our wedding anniversary dinner. Location was OK (busy street/highway) but the weather was great so we opted for the patio to the side of the building. Weird side entrance with no directions from the front parking. Very friendly and attentive staff upon arrival and we... More

The menu read very well, with many choices and dishes which should have been good. We started with the Calamari and the Steak Tartar. The Steak Tartar was well seasoned and served with fresh garlic, purple onion and smoked paprika. While it was the consistency of ground beef, and had been handled far too much, the flavour was good. The... More
