It was ok. The service was slow. I haven't gone out of my way to visit again and I live less than a 10 min drive away.

Your review states that you visited this last February, which was 7 months ago. Much has changed since then. We have been back in our new beautiful kitchen since Mother's Day and have a new chef/kitchen manager since the end of June. I hope you decide to try us again and I do believe that you will see a tremendous... More

This was on our to-visit list last winter. I'm glad we finally made it. Nice atmosphere. We were seated promptly in the bar area ~ which was quite nice. Our server, John, took our drink order and delivered quickly, along with a loaf of Bavarian wheat bread, then gave us time to look over the menu. I decided on the... More

I am so glad that you finally found your way to us. Your timing couldn't have been better, as I am sure you know we were rebuilding our kitchen during the whole winter season. Our new chef/kitchen manager is doing a wonderful job, as you so graciously described. I hope you have us on your "to visit" list again soon. More

We brought our visiting son to Blackstones for dinner last Friday, in part to show-off the nicest restaurant in Z'hills, and to view the remodel after the fire. Yes, the beloved salad bar is gone, with lonely booths in its place. We were very surprised to be seated in the bar section, next to an outside door. We called beforehand... More

Thank you for your review and especially "Tip to the owners". You made a great point and we now offer soup in place of the baked potato, mashed or rice pilaf at no additional cost. As the salad automatically comes with your dinner entrée, this will enable you to have both soup and salad, the vegetable of the day and... More

I am an Englishman but come to my second home for nearly 4 months in all per year to my house near Champions Gate ( around 50 miles away from Zephyhills).

It is so nice to know that you enjoyed the "total" experience when you dined with us. We always enjoyed The Dukes too and Saturday night was my favorite night to work. As we had Doo Wop and Oldies for more than 4 years, many guests have asked for newer updated music. As we all know, things change and we... More

I've eaten at this restaurant on several occasions and found them to be extremely friendly and accommodating each and every time I've been there. I am aware that they recently had a rather severe fire that put them out of commission for several months while they were repairing and refurbishing their kitchen and part of their dining room. After re-opening,... More

We always appreciate a returning guest who can see and understand the complete picture. Every item that we prepare is based on quality and cost to our guest. We will not serve an inferior produce to keep the cost low or plan a plate that is just unaffordable for this area. We are designing an updated (out of the 80's... More

The service was and is still great and the meals are totally outrageous. My wife and I have become regular customers and go there two or three times a week. We have tried almost everything on the menu. We have not found any of the meals to be bad. For me I love the Cowboy Steak the taste is outstanding.... More

Very sad that you have done away with the large Margaritas. This has been the main reason we drive over 20 miles to visit your restaurant. Please reconsider ! Jean G

You are not the only one missing the "Mega" Margaritas and the Good News is we do have them again! The supplier for the Mega Margaritas removed the machine and product, due to insufficient sales, a hazard of summer in Zephyrhills. We purchased the "special" ingredients elsewhere and they are better than ever now. Hope to see you back soon... More

The food is terrible at best. They have no idea how to cook or to properly season anything. This place needs to close ASAP.

We decided to give Blackstones another try a few weeks ago on a Friday night. We ordered fish and chips. I asked what kind of fish they were serving, and was told it was Alaskan white fish. Is that the same as pollack? It was the worst tasting fish I have ever had. It tasted old and freezer burnt. The... More
