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

I have now been twice about 18 months apart. The food and service was consistent during both of my visits. The food is good, some dishes better than others. This past time, my steak was very dry (even though it was cooked to my medium rare request), and the crab on top was a smaller than expected portion. I do... More

I have been there many time both for business and pleasure. This time a Tuesday night for a business dinner. Strangely they were out of no less than two beers which seems odd. our wine order did not appear until we asked where it was which also seems strange. Overall the food was fine although two guests were disappointed by... More

My husband and I have been to Black & Blue several times and have always had a great experience. The food is exceptional and the wine list is quite extensive. The wait staff has always been very efficient, helpful and professional. I especially love the lobster and crab fondue as an appetizer. My husband loves pairing food and wine and... More

The restaurant was slow but The ambiance was nice the manager and the bartender are both very friendly and checked on me regularly. for... More

Food was awesome, great atmosphere, great service, a fun place to go with friends and hang out. I had the Filet and it was very tender. it wasn't cheap but worth it.

i thought the food was just so/so and very overpriced. Got the feeling that since there seems to be a buzz about this place they don't have to work hard and they think people will love it. i thought it was overpriced for what it was and the atmosphere was sterile and not inviting at all - the wait staff...

In November, we went to Black and Blue to celebrate my birthday. We had had a rough fall and going there was a good way to get over the hurtle. We decided we had such a wonderful time and great meal we would return to ring in 2015. We were seated on time at 6:30 and they had a full... More
