This is basically a steak place and I'm not a steak guy - there are limited number of non beef items on the menu; went there just because it was convenient to where I was staying. Special was "surf and turf" - steak and lobster tail. Todd our excelent and knowledgeable waiter suggested to me to just have all lobster... More

This is definitely one of the nicest restaurants in Blaine, yet it has a family atmosphere to it. It also has many return customers, another sign of a good restaurant . There specialty is steak and you can specify the cut, how you want it done and the accompanying items including sauce . They do have other things on the... More

We were celebrating and wanted to go large so we chose a Steak House. Black Forest boasted some pretty good looking specials so we went for it. We were seven adults and two little ones. We got a table right away as there was hardly anyone in the restaurant (or Blaine WA in general). Our server got our drink orders... More

Give this restaurant a 3 for service and a 5 for food. Compromised at a 4. Food was beyond expectations, but server was inattentive. We waited way too long to get our order in, never got a check-in during the meal, and waited a long time for the check to arrive and be taken care of. Again, food was great,... More

We love going to the Black Forest steakhouse. The bar steak is the best deal around and Kerry (I hope I spelled it right) makes the best cosmos and martinis. The steak is cooked to perfection and the sides are delicious. But the strudel with ice cream has to be my favorite. That is besides the spaetsle, the Mac n... More

We stopped by late on a Friday evening to enjoy dinner with two friends from out of town. The restaurant was busy, but we were seated immediately. Our server was slow to appear as he was busy with existing customers. It would have been nice if he at least acknowledged our table. The special for the evening was a steak... More

We have been to this location & the older one in Everson. Though this one was good it just wasn't quite up there with the Everson location. It just seemed the quality of their steaks didn't compare. I would have given them 4, maybe 5 stars but they make you feel uncomfortable for not choosing the way they think a... More

From the time you are greated at the door to the time you leave it is top notch. Prices seemed great for the area, not a place to take children as it is a finer dining establishment. Todd was our waiter, very attentive to us with never having to ask for a refill. Never left wondering where anything was at,... More

My aunt treated us at her favourite restaurant in Blaine. The food was well prepared and a decent helping. Very friendly service. The only thing missing is a view.

I had heard nothing but good things about the Black Forest in Everson, Washington but I was sorely disappointed with the food and service at the new Blaine, WA location. Maybe my expectations where too high?
