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.

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.

They set us up in a little room for 8 and it is our second visit and both times we had this room. They are the best! The service was top notch and the food was very good!

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.

We had the pleasure of going there with some friends who have been there before. The food is cooked real well to our tasting. This is not a place where you zip in and out. You spend time to enjoy the meal. We had the steak and scallops combo and the others had broiled swordfish with rice. The manager stopped... More

We went to this restaurant at the suggestion of my sister. We did not remember this restaurant as a restaurant that we had dined at many years before prior to moving out of the area. We liked it then and loved it tonight. The chef/owner has done a great job; our meals were delicious, the desert was decadent, the wine... More
