Great breakfast

Not fine dining but a great breakfast. Always busy but they always seem to get you in quickly. Great omelets, pancakes, orange juice tastes freshly squeezed. Coffee better than Starbucks.

As I live out of State, it has been over 40 years since I ate here. My pastrami reuben was good, the price was fair and the serving size was adequate. My wife was disappointed in her grilled chicken salad, as the ice berg lettuce was shredded and beginning to turn brown.

I sat at the counter the food and the service were marginal. It was my first and last time there. I felt as if they wished everyone would go home. The only nice people were the cashiers.

Black Oak seems to cater to locals but it's really not as good as the Black Bear Diner, Mel's, or even iHOP in terms of service or food quality.

We met my daughter's family there on Mother's Day as a halfway brunch point. Normally we meet at another Fairfield restaurant. But their ratings had fallen. I checked the Black Oak Restaurant and saw favorable reviews. We were politely seated in a booth for five and were pleased with the variety of choices. The food was delivered and all of... More

The breakfast special for two is a favorite! The breads and spreads are to die for! The monte cristo is orgasmic! A definite must for a family breakfast/brunch! Parking can be difficult, but be patient, you will not be disappointed!

Prices are reasonable, service is great, food even better! Breakfast served til closing, as is lunch. Their waffles are perfection, as is the steak sandwich. Beware if you order a cinnamon roll, with your order, be prepared to take part of it with you. But it's so worth it. The back wall motif is charming. The rest is a little... More

Had some lunch here whilst shopping next door at the Premium Outlet Mall. The Black Oak was very busy and we had to wait a couple of minutes for a table. Service was great and prompt. I had a great Chicken Caesar Salad and my partner had vegetarian pasta. Food was fresh and tasty. Total cost with drinks was around... More
