So weird to see restaurants with no precautions. Food was good. I had a lobster roll that had a huge, whole claw on top of the stuffed roll. Blueberry crisp desert was blueberry and oats, not any identifiable "crisp" so that was disappointing. Liked that...I could order a small takeout wine,More

Had a great meals here and returned during our stay in North Conway. Starting with the starters: steamed pot stickers had great taste and texture, sauce was the perfect compliment. Honduran shrimp cerviche awesome flavors and freshness, the plantains were the star (best I've had)...and the dry rubbed wings were amazing, great fresh flavor and tangy savory sauce. We also had the grilled Caesar wedge and pears/goat salad, again the freshness stood out and added to the great combination of ingredients. The mains followed the trend with freshness and complimentary combination of ingredients and perfect portion size. We enjoyed steak and frites (temperature spot on mid rare as requested) frites (fries) and asparagus rounded it out perfectly, chicken under brick was delicious, served with twice cooked backed potato, el dente brocolini, spiced pecans and savory sauce. Lobster roll was super good, lobster was extremely fresh and complimentary ingredients brought the dish together. The servers were also great, very attentive and not flusterd during a busy dinner service...top notch. My Son and I commented on how we'd love to have this place in our area of NYC. Don't hesitate high level of cooking and service going on at the Black Top Grille, highly recommended. Not a drinker but did try a cocktail here, their take on a margarita, it was very enjoyable. My Son enjoyed a very good selection of tap beers.More

We stopped in for lunch and sat at the bar. I had the Korean brisket with steamed buns, which the bartender (Angela) recommended. The dish was very flavorful with a slight bit of spicy ness to liven it up. The kimshee, pickles and brisket, as...well as the sauce were a perfect combination. I had coleslaw as a side. If you go there you have to try this dish it is spectacular! Teemed with an attentive and capable bartender, what more could you ask for?More

The food was very yummy! Some great options on the menu. Limited options for kids. Shrimp tacos were definitely our favorite! Wait staff was very welcoming and friendly. Pet-friendly restaurant!

Last night we had a great meal. Got sat right away, we had called ahead and got on the wait list. Order was taken quickly, drinks arrived, 1st course was out within 15 mins of being seated, entrees came out together and perfectly cooked and...garnished! All this and the staff where smiling and the customers around us where nice! How did they do it? Easy the host was a BEAST! He only sat parties that had called ahead, he left empty tables in each waiters section even while telling walk-in it would be a two hour wait! He insured the staff had time to serve the guests, the kitchen had time to get the orders out right and the guests had a great expierence. Did the owner lose some sales? Yes! Did he do the right thing? I think so! Did I tip over 20%? You bet!More

We stopped for lunch at Black Cap grille while spending a week in North Conway. We asked to dine outside (nice Spring weather) with our dog. The outside tables filled pretty quickly during our lunch meal. We ordered drinks, and then ordered chicken wings -...we have had them a hundred times elsewhere, and these were among the best I have ever had. I ordered the shrimp tacos, and again, the dish was superior with large shrimp perfectly grilled. I had a nice glass of wine also. They brought water for the dog, and several employees stopped to say hell to the dog (who is very friendly). The meal was superior in service, setting, food. A little pricey but I am happy to pay for quality.More

Stopped by for lunch before going for my second COVID shot. I had the pan seared scallops and they were outstanding, particularly paired with a lobster risotto with a fresh lobster. This is one of my favorite restaurants, and for good reason. The food is...always fresh, and prepared to perfection. They also have absence which is very hard to find, but is excellent and worth a try. Highly recommended.More
