Dinner was a bit of a disappointment. They were totally out of baked potatoes at 7:30 on a Sunday evening. I got the onion rings instead but the were heavily battered. The filet was not all that tender but it was flavorful. The Caesar salad was above average. The service was very good.

Went with high hopes as people spoke well of the joint. Not many people present. Server seemed competent if not a little lonely for customers. Cobb salad lettuce had sand/dirt in it. Not good.

Went to Blackwoods with some friends during my dauhgter's hockey tournament. We reserved a table for 10 and were seated right away. Server arrived right away and took our drink order. Server came back with drinks and took our order. Food came out with in a reasonable time. Food was very good and I will go back again.

WONDERFUL!! I cannot explain how amazing the food was, it made our 10th anniversary memorable! We started with the pretzel bites (which I could have taken two to-go also!), then we had the ribeye and sirloin/coconut- shrimp combo. The sweet potato was perfectly cooked, and both steaks were amazingly seasoned and grilled to perfection. The waitress, Anna, was attentive and... More

We were a table of six last Sunday evening. Server seemed capable enough. It was the food that was under par. Steak was not tender. Baked potato had to be sent back. Coconut shrimp was tasty but small. Drinks were slow for refills. We visited 8 years ago and were delighted by how awesome the experience was from start to... More

We traveled to Duluth for our 20th anniversary. The first thing we agreed on was to eat at Black Woods. Always great food. Love the pot roast. Our server, Justine, was excellent. She had a tabe of over 12 and was still attentive to us. When traveling with our children the train helps to keep them occupied. The bar had... More
