    The service was poor in the lounge when we first got there. Very busy for a Friday night, but you should expect that and have more servers! We did not get a Hello or water for 20minutes. We had to ask the manager to get us drinks! When we got to dinner the server was very nice took our order and did not come back for at least 20-25 minutes!! Horrible service for Black Angus Will not come back!!

    Our server although nice enough was slow as she kept talking to a small group quite often. Took a long time to get our food & it wasn't busy. My husband's steak was over cooked as was my lobster. Kind of not what I'd hoped for spending over $100 for 2.

  • Cold steaks set the tone
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/4/2014
    I have to start off saying the service was excellent throughout the evening. Salads were fresh and tasty. The steaks and prime rib was not hot. Two of the steaks were very cold and sent back to be heated up. It seems like they pre-cook the meat and toss it on the grill to warm. Baked potatoes were hot, though we were given a very small amount of sour cream and I don't think any butter. Must be following orders from Michelle Obama on cutting out the fat. We got there before 6 PM and no Prime rib end cuts were left. The birthday cookie was a nice touch. The service is the only good reason to return.

    We took my husbands 91 year old mother for her late Mothers Day Dinner and we were set in the first section close to the door. After we sat down a large group came in and was set in the same section with people who had physical and mental problems. I think it's wonderful they can go And enjoy themselves but we shouldn't have been set there. We couldn't hear each other.we were there at 5 so it was not crowded. We should of moved but it was alittle late with drinks etc. Big party's and older people don't mix.

    We made our reservation through OpenTable and they had us in their reservation system. However, they somehow did not recognize us as an OpenTable reservation. The place is huge. Service was outstanding, attentive and informative, but not overbearing. For starters, we shared the "Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail". While the sauce was good - strong horseradish, the shrimp were not jumbo. We also each had a cocktail - a "Mother Lode" Patron margarita and a daiquiri, both very good. We each ordered salad, including a Wedge, also very good. The main course, an 8 oz Prime Rib and a full rack of Lamb Chops were both tender and prepared as requested - rare. Our only problem was the "Seasonal Side" Mac and Cheese - just pasta with cheese on top.

    My daughter the grilled cheese meal (9 years old) Everyone else (5 adults) had their meals served on time. We were half way done with dinner before hers arrived. Pretty lame if you can't melt cheese between two pieces of bread and serve it on time. They comped the kids meals at least. But I was not happy with this, seeing my daughter almost cry because she had to watch others eat and we gave her some of our food to ease the wait.

    Overpriced. Bernaise sauce over filet mignon was cold and tasted old. Not enough salad or dressing on house salad. Thecarpet was full of crumbs and dirty for only being 5 pm on easter. The table needed a better wiping down. The manager refused to give my 94 year old mother a kids meal as she doesnt eat that much. Great waitress is the only plus...will not come back. Sticking with outback.

    We discovered we could now use Open Table to make a reservation at Black Angus. It was a pleasant surprise. On arrival our table was ready for us, even with a packed parking lot. Our waiter arrived quickly and took our initial order, but then things slowed down a bit. We do eat at this location occasionally and the service is consistently slow for some reason. Fortunately the food is good enough that we keep coming back. Food preparation was very good. My steak was prepared at just the right temperature. I will return to Black Angus again, as I am aware of the time to get your food after ordering.

    This is the second time we have had someone try and seat us by the kitchen. It is noisy and way too busy at this table so every time we ask to been moved before we sit down. The chicken tenders are not consistent. This time they were very greasy. The appitizer for the other couple at our table did not come out with ours and we had to ask where it was. My prime rib was under-cooked the 1st time and very fatty. I think I'm going to start ordering fish or chicken the next time. Every time I order meat it is not up to par.. Drinks were refilled constantly and the service was attentive. Food quality needs improvement. I'l go to Outback if the meat quality doesn't improve.

    The food here is always outstanding! We come here, mostly, for the fried zucchini which is always to die for!! Our service left much to be desired-- he seemed preoccupied with something else. I don't feel that I should ever have to ask for more to drink when you walk by my table and my glass is EMPTY. Half way through our dinner another server (or bus boy?) started to bring out other items and drinks, so I guess our server went on break? Who knows, but that kid was way better than our actual server. Other than that, we had a great time here. I'd always recommend this place.
