Bearing a Bix Bistro grudge

Bix Bistro could earn a five-dots rating solely for the elegant beauty of historic Hotel Blackhawk. The brunch choices are extensive, and although we sampled only a fraction of the offerings we found them very good, if not special, but then special is rarely possible with a buffet. It was so... read more

We enjoyed a birthday celebration at Bix Bistro and will definitely return when we are celebrating another occasion. We ordered two appetizers for the four of us -- calamari and the cheese flight (assortment of cheeses) -- and they were very generous portions. Next came delicious homemade bread and olive oil for dipping. Our entrees were delicious and more than... More

Very nice hotel surrounding the Bistro. The food was excellent. The staff was courteous and we enjoyed our meals. If you have not been to the Hotel Blackhawk, it should be a stop if traveling through the area. The bistro has a very nice menu and there is a bar serving drinks as well. The atmosphere was excellent as well.

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
