“Best food ever.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Menu was huge and all the food was great! Service was fast despite how busy they were. We were in a group of 20 for a small wedding reception/dinner. Portion sizes were larger than we were able to eat.

“Good food - Friendly service...”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We went here for our anniversary last Saturday night from a suggestion from our hotel staff. It was good food. The wait was originally going to be quite long but they were able to get us seated faster than expected. The view of the lake was very nice. We loved the wood decor. The server was very nice. I had the beef tips and asparagus. Both were really good. My husband had pasta and he said it was really good. We would definitely go back to any of the locations.

“Too bad it's 500 miles from our house.....”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We had a great meal of meatloaf and husband had fall off the bone ribs. Not fancy food but very satisfying. They had drink specials and a good selection of beer. The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. A relaxing experience.

“Great entrees”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We loved the wood-fired chops and salmon florentine! The chops were served with a sweet potato and baked beans, the salmon was on a bed of wild rice that mixed with the florentine and white sauce was very tasty. We appreciated the lake view until it got dark. The place has very dark wood which contributes to a romantic atmosphere.

“Not bad....”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

My husband and I just tried Blackwoods for the first time. There was a 50 minute wait when we arrived (at about 8:30 pm) so we decided to eat in the bar. It seemed odd that they had such a long wait, but one whole section of the restaurant was empty....?? The food was good but not exceptional and the server we had was nice but seemed rushy, like hurry up and eat and get out. Overall I was kind of disappointed.......not as good as I expected I guess.
