Food was good and priced well for what it was. They offered pasta dishes plus chicken and beef options. I like variety in a meal and interesting flavors so I thought they could "spice it up a bit."

Yesterday was my son's 37th birthday and he requested the Black Walnut when asked where he would like to go for dinner. So, my wife and I treated him to what we knew would be a very good meal. We were not disappointed. The food, atmosphere and service was quality. My only observation for the new location is the large... More

I have eaten here many times! I have never had a bad meal! My favorite is the Otis Otis Otis. It is a chicken pasta with feta cheese and Kalamata olives. So yummy! Their lemon chicken pasta is great and my husband loved his French dip. The kids really enjoy their grilled cheese and chicken tenders. Happy kids=happy experience! Oh... More

Every time someone asks to meet for a meal, I always, always suggest Black Walnut. Their food is phenomenal, their staff is friendly and helpful, and it has a great atmosphere. Even when it's crowded, you still feel like you're in an intimate local restaurant. I highly recommend it.

The menu and food are fantastic. However, don't try to go for Happy Hour. The drink prices are high. They have wonderful desserts however and the place is packed at lunch, so go early or be prepared to wait

Great food, reasonable prices, comfortable setting...doesn't get much better! Lots of seating options, we had a business lunch in a side seating area that provided a quiet spot for discussions. After lunch we went to the bar for a cappuccino, the bartenders were vey welcoming.

The food is really delicious! The breakfast enchiladas are amazing!!! Very inexpensive for the amount of food you receive. You have to get your own food when your pager goes off. Not a normal type restaurant. You wait on yourself. The bakery is to die for! Yum!

Great place to surprise the birthday girl. Santa Fe Salad was scrumptious. Lots of activity and healthy noise. Everyone had a good time.
