We had a very good dinner sitting outdoor next to a small water pond. The seafood combination appetizer ($44) was very good, enough for 4 people. It had 12 raw oysters, 4 clams, several mussels, 4 large shrimp, plus a small seafood salad. For the two of us we ordered this large platter plus the whole bronzino (very good) and... More

Besides the rather wonderful brunch for those of us that love seafood, I just discovered the great happy hour. There are comfortable booths to sit in, waiter service and good food and drink deals

I ate here recently on a business trip to the area. The menu featured somewhat standard fare - fish, meats, etc. The service was attentive but not overbearing and my group was allowed to enjoy a leisurely dinner. The food was well-prepared. There is really not a lot to complain about, but there was nothing really special either. Black's offers... More

First, let me say that I am obsessed with all things seafood. My excitement boiled over when I got here and realized that they had squid on the menu and it wasn't fried! Although it's not hard to find locally, I'm not a huge fan of fried foods so this made my day. The portion was larger than I was... More

Not one of my favorite restaurant', but my girlfriend's love their HH. The drinks are $6. The duck tacos and flat breads are tasty. We celebrated a friends milestone birthday, Friday. The service was absolutely horrific, and the tip was short changed because of it.

We found Black's Bar & Kitchen on Trip Advisor, and we were very happy with our meal and service. We started with the cornbread and honey butter, which was delicious. The Saffron Tomato Seafood Stew was filled with tons of seafood and the broth was divine. The Chicken and Dumplings were unique and tasty. We will return on future visits... More

Fresh oysters, with good array of varieties from which to select. Don't pass over the Wellfleet oysters. Also excellent grilled Branzino and grilled vegetables.

Went for dinner, two families with teenagers. Very friendly service, nice wine list, great oysters. We hadn't been for years, and it was a very positive experience. We'll go again.
