Nice relaxing experience

Hostess seated us immediately with a reservation. Waitress was extremely helpful and courteous. We had to wait a bit after our salad to receive the entree, but the waitress informed us of this and asked us if we needed more drinks. Food was delicious.

We decided to have Easter Brunch here because not only did the selection of food items look great but the venue was also offering live music. I have eaten at the Hotel Blackhawk for banquets several times & the food has been outstanding. The Easter Brunch did not disappoint. There was a variety of dinner-type items such as fish, chicken,... More

Stayed at Hotel Blackhawk and went to the bar for cocktails and appetizers. great wine list and yummy martinis. Complimentary popcorn was lemon/ginger flavor, and omg, it was amazing. I scarfed down 2 bowls!! Apparently they have new flavors every day. Also munched on some delicious loaded fries. Fun atmosphere, friendly bartenders. Great time. Can't wait to go back!

Had a business meeting here. Ordered the French Toast & bacon. Very tasty. The restaurant was very busy that morning. Looked like lots of travelers. Service was a little slow but we were in deep discussions so it wasn't a bother. I've had the eggs benedict and the eggs capicola, both also very good. We'll definitely be back!

We showed up for our reservation and were sat immediately. From there it all went downhill, it took the waitress ten minutes to even greet us, and roughly 10 to 30 minutes each subsequent time after that. After 2 hours we recieved our food and it was cold and undercooked. We will NEVER be back to Bix Bistro ever again.

I've made it a habit to dine at Bix Bistro prior to events at the Adler Theater. However, they offer a very limited menu with very few vegetarian options. The server at my previous meal offered a choice from the regular dinner menu; however, this server made no such offer so I elected to choose one of the few vegetarian... More

Quality of the food was fantastic but that's about it. Eggs Benedict station and a hand carved roast beef station with nobody at either one was uncomfortable. Why should I have to look around for the person that's supposed to be serving each station. But hey, it looked good! Grab your own drink from the bar seemed awkward as well...... More

We have been to Bix Bistro before but New Year's Eve this year(2014) was especially good. The food and drink was good plus our waiter was really what you would expect! The atmosphere is really great, and we had a couple drinks at the bar which was enjoyable also. This is a great place for events like Valentine's Day, etc.
