Special Occasions and Time to Impress

This is a great choice that is close to the OU campus when you want to impress a date or there is a special occasion. The food is very good but the menu is limited in choices. The food is a little pricey for what you get but its not outrageous. The ambiance is

Great pub with great food and drinks. We love this place and often stop when we're in town. Enjoy their brew pub beers and drinks that range from inexpensive to very nice and expensive. Have had many items on the menu and love them all.

I've been here many times, but the service is always weak. It feels like it is run by young inexperienced people. Btw, how can a full service restaurant not stock Johnny Walker Black? Unfortunate.

Their food is excellent if you enjoy traditional comfort. Because of the large bar and proximity to campus, it can get very noisy, especially in the evening. Very handy for a meal or drink after performances at the university.

Being a Tripadvisor people, we often look for places to try other than known chains- hence, our visit to Blackbird Gastropub on a visit to Norman. We'd really say a 3.5. We were not disappointed. Service was good, atmosphere- other than noise due to a large group nearby- was satisfactory, but the food was quite good. The Pot Roast sliders... More

Pretty good restaurant and drinks for a college town. Great whiskey and scotch selection. Fish and chips were not great, HOWEVER the pot roast sliders were amazing. Very flavorful pot roast and some juicy jus to dip it in...yum!

This place is mostly for drinks. If you want food, this is not a great choice. Nothing remarkable or unique about the food. Decor is really nice though.

Unique and delicious menu, friendly staff, and unbeatable drink selection at great prices. When we are in Norman we love to dine here. It's near the University in a great area. One of our favorites in the area!
