I have now eaten here 3x and each time the food and service have been excellent. The dining room and bar are comfortable and the servers are professional. This is a steak house with no surprises on the menu but the meat is top quality and well prepared. A steak dinner of this caliber in a larger urban market would... More

Great restaurant.. We went to celebrate a family birthday & we're very happy with our choice. Great food, wine, & beautiful ambience. Service was excellent. The seafood selection was amazing. Definitely worth going!

From the moment we walked in my wife and I were made to feel that the evening was all about us. Our gin/tonics - choice of gins, we enjoy Bombay - were great. As it was our anniversary - B/B had asked - there was a handwritten congratulatory note at our table and we were later treated to a complimentary... More

Took my family (2 kids) here for a birthday, and the place did not disappoint. We had the lobster and crab dip for an appetizer and it was plentiful and tasted fantastic. The main meals were all steak and lobster and each of them was done to perfection- and my kids are very picky eaters. The steak salad was perfectly... More

The food was delicious (I had the salmon) (my boyfriend had the Lamb) and the wine was very good. Our server was so sweet and so was the hostesses. The managers were amazing and got us seated within 10 minutes of us arriving and not having a reservation. I would definitely recommend it and we will be going back!!

I had stopped in for an impromptu lunch and I was more than amazed at how great everything was. The manager Elaine was one of a kind. She was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and cooked to perfection. Our server Olivia was incredible! Clone her and that smile and you'd have yourself a winning staff! All in all,... More

My wife and I celebrated an anniversary by going to Black & Blue. It was fantastic all the way around. Great wine, food and atmosphere. The staff made you feel like royalty, and the GM Adam even greeted us and made sure everything was good. We couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate. Thank you B & B.

WOW! what a great experience. Had a business dinner at this restaurant and was very pleased. Service was great, Sarah Jane a true southerner like me was wonderful. All three in our party had a different cut of steak and ended up sharing. Only downside the asparagus needed help. Whenever in the area again it will be my must go... More

We went there Friday night. Our service was very good. The menu was excellent. It did take a while for our food to reach the table. Again, it was a Friday night and the restaurant was very busy. I ordered my steak medium well, and it was spot on. I had the crabcake for an appetizer, and asparagus as a... More
