I am stunned that there are positive reviews here - maybe I entered the Black Rose via parallel universe, or (more likely) maybe the Black Rose owners are posting their own reviews.
My experience was anything but positive. We were hit with the smell of stale beer the second we opened the door, and confirmed its presence throughout when our shoes stuck to the floor as we walked in. If we were there for anything other than a couple drinks we'd have left - if the public areas are that filthy I do not want to think about what the kitchen must look like.
Atmosphere was depressing, at best, and service was very slow, particularly considering the sparse crowd. I know Main Street Newington isn't exactly jumping, but with a little effort a better spot for food and drink can be found. This place is surely not worth the time or money.
