My Family went to Black and Blue Friday night And all three of us had a wonderful experience. The wait staff were helpfull in explaining the options and attentive in service. We all decided on steaks three different and loved each bite. We felt the calamari appetizer was the best calamari we have EVER had! The crab dip appetizer also... More

Only been twice (we only get to the area every few years!), but always can't wait to get back. Quite simply a great steak house, with a very comprehensive wine list. Service is excellent and friendly, without being over the top. Only reason I don't give it 5 Stars - prices - you can spend less in a one star... More

Everything was perfect on this evening. Greeted when we arrived . Our pre server was Emma and our waiter was Bill. They both did a great job. Bill discovered it was our aniniversery and made a pointe to bring us a dessert with a candle in it. Nice touch. The manager made a point to check and see how everything... More

The steak and lobster was awesome. We enjoyed great shrimp and oysters as well. The service was amazing from the bar to the table where we are dinner. I highly recommend this place to eat!

Beautiful room, okay menu, very acceptable wine-list, and mostly decent service. It's hard to fault this plaza restaurant on any count, except perhaps the kitchen, which turns out standard fare without a lot of creative effort. That makes this a steady-Eddie steak and seafood joint, that seldom disappoints, but occasionally leaves you to ponder whether you might have done just... More

The good: * Consistent quality food, generally good * Staff is pleasant and helpful The bad: * The price is exorbitant for what you get * Ambiance is a bit too chic / modern for me This is a great option for business lunches and other professional functions, and the occasional meal. I've been here for numerous lunch meetings, several... More

We were at Black and Blue for a corporate dinner with a rather large party. The atmosphere is very nice and the food was very good, but it is not a top tier Steakhouse. I have dined at some of the finest Steakhouses in the country and although this place is very nice it does not measure up to the... More

I have had the pleasure of Dining at Black and Blue many a time. I can say honestly I have never had a bad experience nor a bad Meal. You know how everyone always says they can make this better at home, well you can't. The prices are a little above normal, but you get what you pay for, EXCELLENCE!
