I took my mom for brunch and drinks. We had mimosa, margarita, and some of the best food I've had in awhile. All with a great view of the city from the rooftop. Now, I've got to get back for dinner!

I agree with ccwriter1 - it depends on the time. We were there, upstairs on the roof dining area/bar and it was lovely. Very few people, but as it got later the place filled up, especially the bar area.

No there is no specific parking for Black Sheep, but there is parking around the restaurant and a bank across the street that is closed by dinner time.

There are some who could take you but I would recommend arranging in advance. Uber is also an option. It's a 45 - 55 minute drive so a pricey ride. Your hotel might have additional suggestions. Hope to see you!
