Great lunch

Stopped there for lunch last week. They had a special going. Baked scallops over a ceasar salad. The second best salad I've ever had. The best salad I've ever had was there as well and is on the regular menu. Caesar salad with lemon butter haddock on top. Delicious.

Awesome sweet potato fries with honey mustard dip. Wish we lived closer. Would have loved to try it for dinner. Definitely will come back to if... More

Met an old friend here for lunch. We both ordered a salad and spilt a bread pudding for desert. They salads were fresh and the bread pudding was served warm.

We rented the down stairs room for our company celebration. The room has a great layout and atmosphere. It was beautifully decorated with Holiday décor and a section for a sit down dinner as well as a section for drinks and appetizers, dance floor area with comfortable couch and high top tables. The service was excellent. The food was excellent.... More

We have been to Black Water Grill many times. We always have great service and food. On the weekends there is live entertainment. We also have had several functions here and they have been wonderful.
