Very good fish and chips. A little pricey. Husbands blackened fish dish was very good. Have eaten here when we are in the area several times. Always good service and fast kitchen has been our experience.

The decor may be a bit shabby at times but the food is always reliably good--especially the calamari appetizer.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner. This was our first time dining at the Blackfish Cafe and we will return. The scallops were excellent! Everything was very good!

Food was awesome. The service was really slow though. As if strained. Yet it wasn't that busy. The lady at the front desk also had a really weird attitude. Not even sure how to describe. You got impression you were an inconvenience to her in any case. If you can ignore that and arnt starving when you go in though... More

Blackfish is usually fabulous but now it's on my inconsistent list. The last time I had dinner there the garlic in my risotto was burnt. How did it leave the kitchen like that?
