Blackstone Grill is in an unassuming little strip mall across from the Regal Theater in Christiansburg. We decided to stop in for dinner before a movie. At 6pm on a weekend, the place was virtually empty. Not always a great sign but oh well So I ordered the salad I’d been eyeing on the menu – pistachio crusted goat cheese... More

Very good food. Very good staff and atmosphere , but you are going to pay for all the above. The steaks and crabcakes are the best in the area - by far. The key lime pie was good but not great. Two entrées and one drink was $75 before tip . If someone else is buying THIS IS THE PLACE... More

We stopped in Christianburg enroute from PA to GA. We trusted in tripadvisor's rating for the Blackstone Grill and glad we did. The ambiance is very comfortable -- new, lots of wood, clean lines (perhaps a tad bright). Service was quick, friendly and efficient. The maitre'd was helpful and just chatty enough (and friendly). Dinner was very tasty - crabcakes... More

I took my wife out to celebrate Valentine's and we had a great experience. The food was delicious and the service was great. I had the prime rib and my wife had the special. The food came out in a timely manner and was cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back again.

Three of us went for dinner and it was delicious. The service was excellent, the kitchen was speedy (without our feeling rushed), and we ate every bite. We started the evening with a shared order of calamari -- tender, lightly battered and fried. Great. 2 had the mushroom soup appetizer - hearty, woodsy - and 1 the Caesar salad. Entrees... More

We've been going to the Blackstone Grill since it opened (when it was still Bookbinders). They've always provided great food and their service every time we visited has been impeccable. Great to have them in this area; love bringing visitors to dinner here to show them that we have a classy food establishment in our neck of the woods.

We tried here again after a couple of bad experiences over a year ago. The atmosphere is great and waitress attentive. However, again, we found the food to be inconsistent and disappointing. My steak was great but sides were cold. 2 other people at the table had to send back the prime rib and a steak to still be unimpressed.... More

My wife and I had a great dinner. They are using a new beef supplier and quality was great. My prime rib was perfect as was her filet. They have also added a wider range of desserts. She had the homemade ice cream ( cheesecake ) and I had the lemon chess pie. Both great. Would recommend to everyone.
