Outstanding quality

Just ate at Blackstones for the first time. Prices are high just like any other similar Flemings or Ruth Chris would be. Quality of meat, seasoning and cooking were top notch. Also had lobster and that was cooked perfect so tender and not over done though the butter was so over - clarified it... read more

My husband and I were really looking forward to checking out this steakhouse in our area - steakhouses are such a fun (though expensive) and luxurious experience and we like to treat ourselves from time to time. I read the reviews here and elsewhere on the net and thought that the overall high rating would match our experience, but sad... More

We went there on a snow evening and the place was nearly full. Of course we had the steak dinner. I was with a friend, we got the steak for one ($48) and there was enough left over for a third meal. This porterhouse steak was 22 oz (including the bone). Onion soup was decent, not the best in the... More

Best steak I've ever had, hands down, The creamed spinach was excellent. Their bacon appetizer included the thickest slice of bacon I've ever seen, but it was worth the price. Give the Blackstone sauce a chance--it's one of the few sauces I liked, The dining area feels like an old school brew house from Germany high ceilings it's a nice... More

This is for those special nights out. The food is delicious and the owner is around, making sure everyone is happy. Service was a little slow but the place was crowded that night.

Snow was not fully removed from the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. The maître d' had an attitude. The service was unbearably slow and the food was at best mediocre. We will never go to this restaurant again.

Always looking for steak establishments for my carnivore husband, I had heard of this but had no recommendations or reviews. Decided to try and was so thrilled we did.

The food was good, not exceptional. The service was spotty, even though on amtuesday night it was not very crowded. The bill was high for average food.

You can't go wrong with ordering their prime steaks, which were excellent. They are really the only reason to eat here, although the appetizers and sides were good as well. No complaints with anything this particular Friday evening, except we were all left wondering if we received the same portion size ordering the shared Porterhouse steak for three as we... More
