Comfortable Setting for Good Food

Black's offers great appetizers, fresh seafood, and a nicely appointed bar. It's comfortable and busy. Definitely a good place to stop at the end of the day.

The raw bar and grill menus had something that appealed to everyone in our large group. The Atlantic Halibut and the Scallops were a favorite at the table, the M&C was also divine.

The place is usually very busy with the patio crowded when the sun is out. I've been here a couple times. Their oysters were very good although the ones that are not part of happy hour much much tastier. Great happy hour prices. I've had their fried chicken and my friend their fish - all perfectly cooked and delicious. Love... More

I usually overlook this place, but not anymore. Finally had a meal at this restaurant and it was great. The food was on point. Oysters were delicious and the service was on point!

Sit in the bar, if you can. Order mussels and whatever else you want to go with them--frites, risotto of the day, a salad--you can't go wrong. Truly, some of the best mussels I've ever had.

Attention Chef Jeff Black! This restaurant may be going downhill with basic Restaurant 101 not being implemented. The brunch opens at 11:00am Every Sunday for which I have been a loyal monthly patron. Today, March 22nd, I can definitely say the restaurant is going downhill. We came in 11:30am as usual and the restaurant was a third full. By the... More

The atmosphere was great and the food was really good. The wait staff were knowledgeable and very helpful and the food was outstanding. Their seafood is outstanding.

The Sunday brunch is superb and people were truly enjoying themselves. Yet one unobtrusive downside (all too common in the restaurant biz)? Their wine list occasionally lists 'First wines,' e.g., Rauslan-Segla Margaux yet presents the second wine from the same Chateau: namely, "Segla." Very poor form and Caveat emptor. A concerned wine lover.

For some years, a few friends have met irregularly at a restaurant across the street. Today, again, they were in chaos, and again we came to Blacks. Calm atmosphere despite two big office parties, pleasant hostess, and charming server, all made for a delightful lunch. Menu there is always innovative and the raw bar is a favorite. This will be...

Took my son, daughter-in-law and wife to Blacks for a return visit to celebrate son's birthday. Table was avaialble when reserved, 7PM on a Saturday evening. Service was excellent as were the specials and the normal menu. Fish dishes were expertly done, my pork chop was quite special, the dessert offerings decadent and the 4 fork chocolate layer cake with... More
