Delicious tilapia!

Excellent food and delightful owners. Nice selection of very good Turkish wines. Perfectly prepared, warm pita and a great salad!

I eat a lot of Mediterranean food and this was some of the best I’ve had. Really good home cooked tastes. I recommend the beef & lamb kofte. But I’d skip the cocktail for the wine. Friendly service.

Black Sea Grill is a very family friendly restaurant. Even if your child doesn't like Mediterranean style food they have a hamburger and grilled cheese on the menu. The turkish patties are very yummy try those. The lamb was cooked just how I liked it. You can tell its a family owned and operated restaurant. My only complaint is the... More

I've come to this place several times for lunch. Typically the owners are present and working in the restaurant. There are two generations of family running the place. The atmosphere is always tranquil after pounding around the streets of downtown. My most recent visit was during Azalea festival weekend. The downtown had home tours, garden tours and a street festival.... More

Our lunch food and alcohol drink was excellent. Small store front which is too bad because you almost miss it. Please find it, and enjoy an awesome meal. Loved it !! Buy some coffee to take home and enjoy.

On a two-day drive from Western PA to Jacksonville, FL, we decided to break our trip with an overnight in Wilmington. As it was our first night of vacation, we wanted to treat ourselves to a wonderful meal. The Black Sea Grill was my choice based on reviews from travelers and locals alike. All I can say is, I WISH... More

I had never eaten Turkish food and it is like other Mediterranean foods - very tasty and health. We had appetizers, kabobs, fish and turkish wine and loved it all. This is a no frills sort of place - it is more like a regular hangout that you would return to with frequency. For people on a limited budget, most... More
