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... read more

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 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

Let me start by saying that the owner of this restaurant, Christian Breen, goes out of his way to help the community. He's always willing to contribute. Every year he hosts a breast cancer benefit with the tastiest appetizers around. His chowder and fried calamari are to die for. The restaurant has a cozy bayside upstairs dining and downstairs there's... More

We went on a Saturday night and this place was fantastic. Very cozy, trendy, and great atmosphere! The drinks were large, tasty, and well worth the money. The menu seemed very well done and they had classy options for whatever you felt like.
