“Very good food. Very good staff and atmosphere , but you are going to pay for all the above.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

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 TO GO!!!!

“A very pleasant dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

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 for the wife; salmon for me. Tuna appetizer was perfect. Don't miss the creamed corn side dish - roasted corn, salt/pepper and a touch of cheese (no cream!) = delicious! The double chocolate cake dessert, although enormous, was also tasty. We'll be back.

“An excellent find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

My wife and I were returning to PA from Florida and spent a night in Christiansburg. We Googled local restaurants and we liked what we saw on the Blackstone Grill website. Figured it was worth a try. Turns out it was a perfect choice. My wife had crabcake, I had prime rib. You could tell by the preparation and presentation that someone really cared about the food. Our waitress (A.) was knowledgeable, professional and really added to our delight at finding such a great place on the spur of the moment. The manager also made his presence known and helped to make sure we we had a great meal. We don't pass through Christiansburg too often, but when we do, we'll be back.

“Who knew Christiansburg had such a good restaurant?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

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 were shared (grudgingly): the fabulous wasabi/panko-crusted salmon, cooked to perfection; the large crab cake full of BIG lumps of crab and little else; and the grilled meatloaf special (better than Mom's). The sides that came with the entrees were really good, too. 2 of us shared the cheesecake ice cream, which was to die for, and 1 had the pecan pie with some ice cream, also wonderful. Good wine selection and some interesting beers too. Worth seeking out if you're in the Blacksburg area, or traveling down 81 and want to stop for the night. Subsequent conversations with friends included "great for a special meal," "pricier than an average dinner in the area but worth it" and "I had the salmon and thought it was amazing."
