Jack Neimans Black Forest Restaurant is our absolute favorite place to eat in all of Whatcom County!!! We have been going there for at least 15 years. Their food is consistently good. Their steaks are fabulous and the schnitzel Cordon Bleu is the best ever! They also make the best Cesar salad around. You've got to try it, you won't... More

This restaurant started as a classy place. It still can be but the small things that are going down hill need to change quickly. 1- the food is good always has been but unfortunately the inconsistent portions are an issue!! I have been going here for 17 years so I know the portion size they used to give and sometimes... More

I have been coming here my whole life. The food has always been good. Steaks are great & always on point, salads are great, sides are amazing. The only issue I have is the inconsistent food portions. Sometimes I get a good sized salad sometimes I don't. Sometimes I get a good size potion of potatoes, sometimes I don't. Last... More

We went to on a Friday night for a couple night. I hadn't had Schnitzel in 30 year, and I have to say it was better than what my grandmother made, and she's was fantastic. We also had very good Cosmo's and the best darn Baked Onion soup ever, it was really worth the drive. It had a great feeling... More

The food at Herb Nieman's (formerly Black Forest Steakhouse) is sooo good, I had the logger steak last time and it was cooked to perfection, smothered with caramelized onions and sauteed whole mushrooms. The lentil soup is delicious too, as is the shnitzel.

I don't usually order steak in restaurants because it is almost never as good as I can grill it at home. There are only a three restaurants I have found within a few hundred mile radius of me that are the exceptions (this includes well known, over priced steak houses in both the Seattle and Vancouver BC areas), one of...

Ordered the schnitzel cordon blu, a great German beer, and an order of escargot. Food and service was good with one exception. The schnitzel was a bit dried out like it had been taken out of the freezer defrosted and flash heated but was ok. I asked for some of the mushroom gravey which helped. The downside to the otherwise... More

We have been eating here for over ten years, usually sit in the bar. Hands down best steak I have ever had. However, on a recent visit, we noticed our waitress, Angel, using her bare hands to grab the salad croutons. I would have preferred she used a utensil or gloved hand. This is gross. We watched her do this... More
