This restaurant is really good. It offers so much; an outdoor patio, lounge area with lots of seating and dining rooms arranged like a house. The food was excellent. Great portion size for the price. Everything was fresh and cooked perfectly.

The food at the Black Water Grill is very good. The portions are a good size. The waitstaff is attentive without hanging over you. We enjoy eating here.

I was here on a work "meet the new team" event. The food was good, especially as we were about 40 people on a cold night. Tiffany ran the bar and pretty much everything else, and she was great. Good to talk to and just got everything done fast but in an organised fashion. I would love to return for... More

I go here a few times a month after work with colleagues to unwind and talk a little shop - mostly relax and have fun in the bar area. The staff is excellent - very friendly, professional and attentive. Wines are great - and their menu has a lot of variety - great appetizers too. In Season - love the... More

First time visit. Had the blackened scallops however my opinion of blackened differs from the cook. A blackened crust is guess what ...black. Lucky I also like seared scallops as these were big sea, moist and plentiful for the price. To the owner. Refinish your pine tables. Nothing like thinking worn poly and a previous poor finish is an in... More

Danielle, our server, was very friendly and made us feel comfortable and welcome as she told us the daily specials. I prdered a baked haddock meal and... More

A 10 oz. perfectly cooked medium rare filet mignon with roasted potatoes and vegetables for $26! What more could one want? A specialty of the house of Chicken Sautee with pasta and a tomato parmesan sauce $16 was wonderful and more than enough for one person. In fact, I will have 2 more meals from the leftovers. The bread was... More

My steak tips had absolutely zero flavor and were incredibly chewy. The Sweet Potato fries were certainly out of a bag as were the vegetables that were soggy and Luke warm. My date had a chicken dish that wasn't very impressive either. The room became very dark after 6:30. I don't mind a little ambiance, but, it certainly was a... More

If you are looking for a nice casual place that offers great food then this is the place to go. The food is consistently good and the service is always great. The menu has a nice variety of selections both with the Appetizers and Entrees. I personally enjoy the Mussels and Lobster Ravioli. On certain nights they even have live... More
