I've been going to the Blackwater Lounge since its inception. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The martini's are made right! The food menu is really good...especially so since sushi was added to the appetizer menu. I've brought many friends from out of town...and, when they come back they nearly always want to head back down to Blackwater Lounge.

The majority of the time that I visit Blackwater is a night out with friends. We usually go on Thursday nights for Ladies Night to get half off sushi and $5 martinis. We always have a good time!

#: 453240441 We had the fondue and it was great . It was way to dark in there to see the menu. Drinks where wonderful. I won't be going back. The women's work outfits where very low cut and made us feel uncomfortable .

Wonderful! We had the fondue and the wontons - both were awesome! I think the wontons should be plated at 8 though; 6 was a little skimpy!
