Great food, right on the water. Went on a Thursday night and it was not too busy. Waitress was great and all of our meals were wonderful. Love the specialty drink menu and would definitely go back again. Chose to sit at the bar - a bit of a smaller menu but we were on the way to NH so we wanted to have a quick bite. Would definitely try the dining room next time.

Very nice pub like atmosphere on bar deck to go along with a great view. Bartenders were very friendly, made great Margaritas! The pub menu had a nice variety. I highly recommend the calamari!

If you are looking for average food, terrible service with a nice view- this is the place for you! The appeal here is obviously the location as it sits on the water, however nothing else is worth a visit. A restaurant doesn't have to have amazing food to warrant a return trip, often the experience and atmosphere is what brings me back. Not the case with the black cow. U have made the mistake of eating here a handful of times in the hopes that it would get better, but it just doesn't.

I have never been treated so rudely by staff members before, in particular a few of the female bartenders. They seem to be riding on a high horse and cannot "stoop down" to anyone's level. They are rude, seem to hate their jobs, and are losing customers for the restaurant.

Do yourself a favor- skip the black cow and check out one of the many other great restaurants in town.

Great food, great deck overlooking the Merrimac River in an awesome small town on the North shore of MA. The best part of this restaurant was the service. The hostess quickly accommodated a misunderstanding in our reservation, and apologized for any inconvenience (which there was NONE!). The waitress was equally accommodating, recognizing that we were celebrating an event and went out of her way to make it special for our large group of 9. Additionally, the menu was quite good - appealing to both grandparents and teenagers alike! Would highly recommend this place if you are in the area. We did not sit on the deck this visit, but have been there before. A nice bar right on the deck and a great bar menu.

Varied menu of steaks and seafoods. Well stocked bar with variety of draft beers. Attentive wait staff, comfortable ambiance, pleasant views of the Merrimac River. Excellent place for a romantic dinner.
