We had a steak and some pork. The portion size was good the presentation and the temperature of the food were perfect. The chief even came over and spoke with us. April was our server. She was professional, helpful and friendly. Keep up the good work! Well Done!!

My wife and I had a delicious dinner and drinks here as we visited on business! We had salads for dinner and bruschetta as an appetizer. Our waitress was super-attentive and made us feel right at home. Hope to have the chance to stay here and eat dinner again!

We live in the area and had our first dining experience at The Black Rooster and I have to say the food was FABULOUS. We had the best nachos as an appetizer I have ever had and the hubs Filet was cooked to perfection so much so that it nearly melted in your mouth. The side items of potatoes and asparagus were equally as tasty. I had the Chef Salad and although it was more of a Chicken, fruit and nut salad than a chef it was divine. The only real problem we had was the waitress didn't seem to have a very good handle on the menu and couldn't answer basic questions. Instead of saying she didn't know but would find out, she just rattled off what she believed to be true and actually caused me to order the wrong salad. The chef who gave us ver personalized attention changed it for me with no problem and I had a delightful meal. However, in my opinion, the dining experience is a complete package especially at those prices and they would do themselves a HUGH favor if they would require their staff to become intimately knowledgable about everything they serve. We will definitely be going back. Lamb.m

Large portions and well seasoned food make this brunch something special! It is also very reasonably priced. The bar also serves very tasty mixed drinks, so if you get a chance, try the Thin Mint cocktail.

Blackstone takes great pride in presenting weekly Sunday Brunch features, in addition to his creative menu. Sunday Brunch is served from 10:00am until 2:00pm each Sunday. Reservations are accepted, but not required.
