Friendly and delicious

The friendliness of the hostess and the service of our waiter Evan were excellent! The was delicious too. The gourmet flavored cream cheese start was the perfect start to our relaxing back porch dinner date. The ribs, fried green tomato salad, and ravioli were all memorable!

The crab Cake Sandwich is absolutely delicious, it even has a fried green tomato on it! I was surprised to find Blackwater is now open for lunch Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11-2! You have to check it out!

The location of this restaurant is prime as its in the middle of shopping. The food here is of normal sizes and the seafood seamed extremely fresh, I had a burger as I was nursing a hang over. The décor inside was really pleasant.

On our trip to Florida got to spend time with our son who is stationed in the area. Our dinners were good and only concern was the service that was slow for a quiet evening, not awful just slow. Our wait staff was very pleasant, but it appeared that something was not right in the kitchen. We will come next... More

Excellent food, well prepared. Most menu items were fresh and native to the area. Portions were ample but not too huge. Service was excellent, attentive but not pushy. Set in the middle of a trendy shopping area, it was the nice end to a fun day exploring.

It was overall good! We enjoyed the food! Wish we could have sat outside (too cold) as their deck is pretty cool. Would most likely go back again.

We were disappointed last year to find out that Blackwater Grill had stopped serving their Sunday brunch. Good news - they have reopened for service on Sundays. The food served at Blackwater is just delicious and very exciting. Special dishes are offerd each night but it's not hard to find a dish on their regular menu which is an exciting... More

You know those times when you need one more level in the ratings range? We ate in the bar and had some good food. It was a bit heavy on the sauces and fats for our taste, but others would probably love it! Atmosphere and service was friendly and fun.

We loved this place. Our waiter, Terrance, did a great job of serving us. He took the time to totally explain the restaurant menu and everything sounded so good. My husband and I had the Brunswick Stew. He had the Jambalyla and I had the Cajun Pasta. All of the food was delicious. This place is charming in a funky... More

The food is a cajun seafood. Ask if you aren't sure about the hotness of an entree. I had the shrimp and grits and they were wonderful. The decor is very interesting with different salt and pepper shakers on each table, different items hanging on the walls, etc.
