“Little pricey, pretty tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

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 salad (small) with grilled salmon. Small was definitely a small, and the grilled salmon ran me an extra $5 but it was very tasty. There were cranberries and balsamic onions and ever some pears cut into nice little sticks.

My fiance ordered the prime rib dip. It was tasty but the au jus was insanely salty.

Overall it was a good meal, albeit a little pricey for what it was. If everything on the menu (sandwiches $10+) was a few dollars cheaper, I’d be far more inclined to go there regularly before our weekly movie dates. I’d go back and try the burger that (as I peered at another table) looked great.

“Very good food. Very good staff and atmosphere , but you are going to pay for all the above.”

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.
