We hadn't been back to the Hotel Blackhawk in a number of years and were very impressed with the renovations. Bix Bistro was very good. Great bar and drinks. Food was very good too. Service needs some tweaking however. People's food served at different times, which made it difficult to eat since some people's got cold. Lovely private wine room... More

This restaurant is in the lobby of a fine Marriott hotel property, The Blackhawk Hotel. It is an old hotel from the outside but the rooms are well appointed inside - after a major investment in the property. However, the restaurant is a major disappointment. Even though the food I ordered (spaghetti squash with pesto and shrimp) was outstanding, it... More

We tried to get reservations to stay a single night at the Hotel Blackhawk a few days before the John Deere Classic Golf Tournament. The entire hotel was full of TV crew members. It was raining heavily but we made reservations and dined at the Bix. We really had great drinks, wine, service and food. We highly recommend the "Presidential... More

My mother and I loved our dinner and then breakfast at Bix Bistro! I tried the parpadelle in a sweet pea honey sauce and Kathy, our waitress (I might have her name slightly wrong), warned me that is was a rather sweet sauve and that not everybody liked it, but I wanted to try it anyway because I like trying...

Any time I have a guest or visitor come to town, we go to the jazz brunch. It is just that amazing. First, the hotel - the stunning stained glass overhead and the intricate railing work are a sight to behold as you enter from 3rd Street. The musicians' songs fill up the area - in a good way -...

We went to the Bix Bistro jazz brunch on Sunday and were very pleased. The atmosphere is terrific and the jazz combo playing were excellent. There is free adjacent parking but the area surrounding the hotel seemed a little rough. The brunch is a great deal around $22 per person and includes all the beverages - mimosas, bloody marys, coffee,... More

Not only did they accommodate our party of 32 people, they did it with grace and precise timing. The staff was efficient yet friendly, attentive but not overbearing. The food was some of the best I've ever had.

We ate at the bar on a Friday night - we ordered the shrimp and grits and the Bix loaded fries. The fries were good and the shrimp and grits were excellent, probably the best dish we had at the restaurant. The bartender, Dylan, was very friendly and did a great job. They were out of a particular wine, and... More
