Good food, nice atmosphere, and you can have a conversation

I had been here for a retirement party, but not for a regular dinner. We were not disappointed when we came with some friends. The portions were generous, so much so that we each brought home another meal. The ribs are great and I enjoyed their signature chicken and pasta dish. The small salad... read more

Thanks to Evan and staff for an outstanding event. Had a baby shower there on Saturday and from beginning to end the experience was impeccable. Food was excellent as well as abundant, and service was attentive. The room set up was absolutely beautiful. I can't say enough about the experience and highly recommend for an event.

I went here with my family on a Thursday night. There was only one pasta dish on the menu which sounded good so I ordered it. I had read a previous review saying this pasta dish tasted like boxed pasta with Campbell's tomato soup poured over it, and I would definitely have to agree. The pasta was extremely bland with...

My family and I have eaten at the Blackwater Grill many times in the past but not for a couple of years. In the past, we have been pleased with our meals. This time, we were not at all happy. First of all, there was no vegetarian option. Since one member of our party is a vegetarian, that person was... More

I am a huge nacho snob and these nachos are amazing! They top the nachos off with buffalo chicken, melted cheeses,corn, black beans, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa! My mouth is watering!

Took my son here for his 14th bday. Our table was him, my 8 months pregnant self, husband & 7 year old son. The food was good enough to eat without complaining but not impressive enough to go back. My son got a steak & said it was pretty good. I had a burger which was nothing spectacular. No one... More

Inside tables far apart, easy to have conversations. Enjoyed Pastrami & Swiss on top of a hamburger, tasty fries too. They have outdoor patio dining in the warmer months. The French dip was too well done and dried out for my taste.

My wife and I discovered the Black Water Grill after living in Salem for about a year. We have been a couple of times and have really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. I would recommend this for dining out with friends or a romantic dinner for two!!

The berry feta salad with grilled shrimp was very generous and delicious. Black bean salsa and chicken wrap could have used more spice. A lovely spot easy off 93. Would return often if we lived nearby.

My wife and I had lunch. My wife got the classic Greek salad wrap, I got the pastrami sandwich on Rye, and they were both very very good. Both sandwiches were even large enough for two people to actually share. Nice atmosphere. Would definitely eat here again.
