Patio looks nice, it’s completely full. We sat inside.

John is waiting on us tonight. He’s cool.

The smoked Buffalo Chicken dip and the cantina nachos sound yummy.

We ordered cantina chicken nachos, the full order (half order is a HH special) 3 Huli Huli chicken taco, 2 fish tacos, side Caesar and a side house salad too.

The cantina nachos were decent, they use their own pulled roasted chicken on top, more cheese would have been better. Their chicken looks so dark that it looked like pulled pork. Had to double check with John that we got the right protein on our nachos. I also think some cream sauce or queso sauce drizzled on top of the nachos might have helped it more for me. It didn’t have a ton of flavors to me.

The side salads were both just okay.

The fish tacos were nicely cooked, the creamy slaw wasn’t my jam. Some crunchy and more vinegar based slaw would have made it better for me. It needed some kick to it too.

The Huli Huli tacos weren’t too bad.

Service was good, food was decent.

This is one of my favorite hang-outs in the summer. The patio has a long outdoor bar with great music and a flat screen (for all you sports fans). Alex, the bartender, mixes a mean drink and the chef cooks up anything but usual bar fare. I highly recommend this joint.

This restaurant has a great outdoor seating area. It's not right on the main street so a bit quieter and the parking structure is right next to it sobits easy in, easy out. Inside is quiet nice. The menu is just okay so I am giving it 4 stars for the food. Nothing sticks out as I have yo have it everytime I go and wouldn't rate it as top food but great for a night out is you haven't been here.

We enjoy the atmosphere and food at Penny Black very much. Especially in the good weather when we can eat outside and enjoy the weather and good, reasonably priced food.

Typical pub feel. Loud and busy. Food was ok, lots of beer choices, and overall just all right. Probably geared more toward a younger set.

Stopped in to Penny Black early in the evening for drinks and appetizers. Service was decent and the atmosphere is great. We were told that the place gets much busier in the evening when the DJ arrives.

Very good happy hour for drinks and food. In the Summer time the Patio is great place to hangout and enjoy the summer weather. Food is always good and service is great. Try the specials that change weekly and you won't be disappointed. Great Place.

Tastiest thing was the celery in the Bloody Mary. Absolutely nothing for a vegetarian on the menu.

Gave the place 3 shots and it just never got better.

I work in the area and when asked where to go for a great burger and a beer I always say "Penny Black!" Never have I been disappointed by this place. In the summer it's so nice to sit outside and the inside is very comfortable too. The staff is very friendly and really know the menu so if you just can't decide what to get, they are always able to make a wonderful suggestion.
