First night in Norman

So our friends went to school here and brought us here on our first night. Very glad they did. Started the night with excellent cocktails. Then had the food which was great. The Memphis pork was great and we all agreed we would eat a shoe if it was covered in their Gorgonzola cream. My wife and I... read more

first night, just one colleague and myself, second night there were 8 of us. The smears were fabulous, great start. First night we had macaroni and cheese appetizer, also, just mac and cheese, must be an Oklahoma thing. Second night my friend had the pub fries, but really enjoyed them (bbq on FF? blasphemy!) and my other colleague had the... More

Great atmoshpere and service. Nice patio out back. Food was excellent as well. My husband had the Shepherd's Pie, and I had the pizza. My husband had a whiskey, which was a bit pricey. However, the house Pinot Grigio was very well priced. Definitely recommend.

The place had a nice vibe with friendly staff. The food was some of the best in the OKC metro and priced well. Saw some negative and mediocre reviews so if you like Golden Corral food at Golden Corral prices this may not be the place for you. Check out Blackbird! It's definitely worth it.

This is a very cool place. It serves food with an English pub feel, but much higher end. We noshed on so many appetizers that we may have gone through their entire appetizer menu. We really enjoyed the pork roast nachos and spinach/artichoke pot stickers. The meatloaf sliders were good, but seemed a bit on the spicy side for some... More

Roast beef nachos for a snack on Saturday and an interesting menu led us back for a Sunday evening dinner. Wonderful pork chop perfectly prepared and my other half had the roast beef with truffle mashers. They were out of black tea because of OU moms day but other than that all was excellent.

Really good food and a great atmosphere! We came with a group and received good service while enjoying a wide range of beers, liquors, and tasty foods!

We went with another couple for dinner and drinks. Great food! I would highly recommend the beef tenderloin, roast nachos and the shepherd pie! We are going again soon. Can't wait!

We were out on a date night and visited the upstairs of the Blackbird. They call this area the BIrds Nest, as it is up above the restaurant. It is a tobacco and whiskey lounge, but they serve the full menu so it was perfect for us. The atmosphere was dim and much quieter than the downstairs. They have some... More

Visiting our granddaughter at OU we walked down to the Blackbird Gastropub for lunch. Nice older building, great atmosphere. The menu had a variety of items, appetizers, salads, but what we noticed were the great comfort food dishes. Between the 5 of us this is what we ordered; Meatloaf sliders with fries (spicy and juicy), chicken pot pie, excellent, grilled... More
