It's pricey, but sometimes its' worth it!

Since moving to the area, I've been to this place on a few occasions. Overall, the place is very nice and very popular. It can be nearly impossible to get in there some days.

Had an amazing dinner for our anniversary. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive.. We enjoyed the ribeye and mashed potatoes and the surf and turf. Both were excellent. Will definitely be back!

The servers were very attentive and you don't need to wait for attention. The meal was prepared very well and served with a smile. I was not expecting such a great meal, because it was a selected menu for a dinner meeting, but I was wrong. I will place Black & Blue Steak & Crab on my list to return.

This was the 2nd time in 3 years that my wife and I have visited Black-n-Blue, with the 1st time disappointing her because of her food quality..this time, this past Saturday evening, was disappointing for both of us. Nice ambience, and a full restaurant even at 8:30pm..but then it took our server 10 minutes or so to come get our... More

Nice. Wife ordered fillet butterflied and well. That's just how she likes it. I had KC strip medium rare. Waiter apologized as... More

My husband and I decided earlier in the day that we wanted to go out for dinner. We called and got reservations for 6:30. When we walked in there was a good crowd at the bar and it was kind of loud. We were happily surprised when they seated us in a room that was closed off so we weren't... More

Black and Blue is an excellent steak house. Never tried the seafood because I go there for beef. The food is well done and presented by an excellent staff. The upstairs is the place to eat, with a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere. Nice wine selection. I really can't find anything to complain about, since the food is always great, but... More

From the bar to the restaurant EVERYTHING is overpriced for what you get - I do not mind spending 11-13 dollars for a drink but put some alcohol in it.....measuring out precisely one shot and overloading it with mixer?!?!? They are already making plenty of money - my old saying "Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered." I am shocked this... More
