First of all let me start by saying that the establishment is a cute little place. It opens for breakfast at 10:00 (Which seems to be on par for the area.). The wait staff was quite attentive and keep the the coffee cup filled. We just thought that the food we ordered was spiced a little heavy with pepper. The... More

The sandwich options are creative. The bread is hard to chew. The inside of the sandwich (we got jerk chicken and the steak) were tasty and good.

The menu is great, with lots of out of the ordinary flavor combinations. I got the french toast (for the second time) and it was brilliant. If you go at the right time you can sit right down. However, I wouldn't mind waiting to eat here. The atmosphere here is fine for kids, but the menu didn't appeal to my... More

After I finally find a parking spot, and get seated at one of the eleven small tables in a setting reminiscent of grandma's house(on acid), the reward comes.... The menu! This food is fabulous! Huge two foot long gourmet sandwiches on fresh baguettes. The full order is large enough to feed a family of four. Plus a good variety of... More

Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow! Saw this place on Diner's Drive Ins and Dives. I'm always curious if the places are as good as the show makes them out to be. I have to say, this one was! It's worth fighting the crowds. Go hungry and prepared to still take food home.

The wait was a little longer than I had originally expected but the food was AMAZING. Our server was a real "multitasker" The coffee was good and hot. Service was a little slow but over all a good experience.

I had the bayou biscuits and they were so delicious. A friend had banana pudding and they were blown away. Will definitely be going back!

before I start I need to mention that there will be no photos this review as my phone was full up of memory. Alright I have been looking to knock this restaurant off my must try in Richmond list since 2012, after its appearance on Travel Channels Man Vs Food. Now there was a lot of hype on multiple review... More

I ate dinner at the Black Sheep recently and it was by far the worst customer service I have ever had. My waitress was extremely snobby and rude and looked at the customers like they were stupid when they asked a question. The subs are HUGE and taste great, but customer service is atrocious, at least my waitress was...

We had 2 teens and an adult at our visit at the Black Sheep. We all split the USS Roanoke and it was delicious! The service wasn't the best, our server was rude and never came to check on us. I recommend but hope they work on their service!
