Diner Reviews
  • "We came for our 25th Anniversary. Excellent time! Beautiful evening, 75 and sunny outside by the water with the ducks for some extra entertainment. Great place with great food. After getting stuffed we sat by the fire into the night. Won't wait 25 more to come again!"

  • "We've been to the BG a few times for drinks and appetizers and were never particularly impressed. However, after having dinner our opinions have changed as the food was bordering on spectacular. We went for the more pedestrian meals and didn't pay much attention to our server, who was very attentive. I had a Reuben, which was quite good. My husband, had the meatloaf (don't ask me why anyone would order meatloaf at the Blackhawk Grille). He said is was awesome, and he's a little hard to please. My brother in law had the Jambalaya. It wasn't like any Jambalaya I've ever seen, and was *very* spicey, but we all thought it was incredibly tasty. My husband was keen on the beer as they had Moylan's Kiltlifter on draft."

  • "I used to live in Danville, and have been to the Blackhawk Grill many times. It was so nice to see that it had not changed, but actually was better than I remembered. The outdoor setting was a plus, as it was a beautiful day. Umbrellas were in place when the sun was out, and heaters were turned on at strategic places when the sun went down. Our waitress, Lily, was not only attentive, but took the time to find out our names and family connections - a real personal touch, a plus. We would certainly return again."

  • "Great to sit outside. Awesome wine list. Good service as well. The food wasn't great, but it was good for the price."

  • "Blackhawk Grille delivers consistently solid food. A highly varied menu provides everything from sandwiches to full entrees. The food is very good, service is good and it is a very nice location. An active bar is attached if that is part of your evening out."

  • "From comfort food and pizza to classic steak and potatoes, almost any food whim you may have is available. Very difficult to choose what to have - just order another drink, you'l figre it out!"

  • "My wife and I just moved into the Dublin area. As our move into the Dublin area coincided with my wife's birthday, we were not able to do anything special. Being new to the area, and not knowing where to go I searched on the web for recommendations (which can be hit or miss). Fortunately, I found a review for the Blackhawk Grille. The food was fantastic, the service was amazing, and they even provided a free birthday dessert for my wife! I will definitely be recommending this place."

  • "We intentionally sat outside as this weekend had brilliant weather. You can enjoy your fabulous meal right next to the pond where there are lots of ducks to keep you entertained as they swim by. A meal and a show! :) I've been to Blackhawk Grille many times and it's an exceptional restaurant. There service was a bit off this particular day, they seemed a bit short handed but the food was great."

  • "We came here for a celebratory birthday dinner. It was bustling inside --- Saturday night -- and the service was very attentive for much of our meal. Food was excellent -- my chicken picata was perfectly done and the scampi and noodles that some of the others had was excellent. However, the noise level in the restaurant was almost deafening. Our party of six literally had to should to each other to be heard. Because of the incredible volume, I was reduced to speaking only to the people directly to the right or left of me. The waiter actually apologized for the noise level -- the acoustics in the main room, which is partially enveloped in glass, with a tile floor, do not contribute to conversation."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The restaurant is too loud. It was very difficult to talk and hear each other. There were six of us at a round table."

  • "We've enjoyed the Blackhawk Grille several times ourselves so we invited another couple for dinner. We had reservations for an 8:00 PM Friday night dinner, a little later than we would usually go but to accommodate the work schedule of our guests. We are all in our 60's and we were thinking it would be an 'adult' environment where we could talk. It was much noisier than expected; there were several families with children . Several tables left after we were served so it was more comfortable then. The food, as always, was delicious; we split the mussel appetizer and the lamb shank. For couples my recommendation is to go in the afternoon when you can enjoy the view of the duck pond and converse easily."

  • "The spicey potato chips servered at each table were a great start for a lovely lunch. We had the very tastey meatloaf and very fresh Blackhawk Grille (BG) salad. The server was very friendly and prompt. Blackhawk Grille is a big restaurant located by an impressive Blackhawk Auto Museum water feature. Inside dining or outside are both fun places to eat. The bar area is huge with many selections."

  • "This restaurant is always consistently great. The menu was change a few years ago because of the economy and it is now more affordable. I miss the old menu."

  • "We walked out after 15 minutes. They would not honor our reservation for out door seating. The wait staff ignored us. We will never go there again. Also, we will inform our friends not to bother with this restaurant."

  • "Have been dinning here for quite some time. Always impressed by the food. Burgers are especially good - the oak wood aroma and the juiciness of the meat (always cooked exactly as I ordered)."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The menu has a good selection to please most everyone. Their reuben is one of the best, it has corned beef brisket not deli sliced corned beef. The lobster sliders are also very good. The butterscotch bread pudding which was pretty good and enough for two people. Overall a good place to eat at a good price."

  • "Great place to enjoy lunch and sit outdoors on a beautiful day enjoying the ducks swimming by in the large fountain that is in the middle of the shopping center. We enjoyed our lunch. The sweet potato fries were crispy , the lobster roll was delicious, salmon burger was a little on the salty side. Dessert was okay. Would have preferred vanilla ice cream with the chocolate brownie instead of chocolate. Creme brulee tasted just like a creme brulee should taste."

  • "This place is pretty pricey which is expected since it's in Blackhawk Plaza, but it does have pretty darn good food. We had the lambshank and the porterhouse steak and both were very tasty and cooked just right. We also had the calamari fries which were very good as well. The biggest surprise was desert. I wasn't expecting much but we ordered the big cookie with ice cream and it was to die for. It was warm and fresh made and disappeared instantly. I'm not even a big desert eater but I'll definitely try their deserts again. Minor cons would be that the place is noisy but the atmosphere is nice. Also had a minor snafu with some lukewarm coffee but our server was very nice and fixed it right away."

  • "We've been to Blackhawk Grille more often since they remodeled and changed their menu. They've got more "homey" food -- chicken pot pie is wonderful!! Everything we've had has been really great. Lots to choose from so you don't have an excuse that you can't find something you like on the menu. We always make a reservation on Open Table, though. If you walk in off the street, you could have a long wait. But you can always hang out in the bar!"

  • "Great service! Our server, Ian, was helpful in our wine & beer selections with our meal. I liked that my glass of wine was poured at the table from the bottle of my selection. Ian was attentive & pleasant throughout the meal. Our dinner was well prepared & hot when served. The only thing disappointing was when we were having a drink at the bar, the chips served were a bit soggy. Otherwise a very pleasant experience!"

  • "Enjoyed lunch here...thought the food was very good and our service was great. Thought the ambience was very nice and would definately consider coming back to check out the happy hour menu (2pm to close...love that!) in the bar sometime. Also took note of the nice outdoor dining opportunities for another time. Will definately come back!"

  • "My wife and I went there for dinner on her birthday, and we were both disappointed. We are not upset at the menu and other changes. Rather, it was the quality of the food that was not up to our past experiences. We both had fish dishes, salmon and tuna. If you want good fish, try the Peasant and the Pear in downtown Danville."

  • "My husband and I had not been to the Blackhawk Grille for a very long time. It is such a neighborhood gem that I'm not sure why we hadn't been back in such a long time. We had an excellent experience and the food was delicious. Our waiter was new, so he was a little slower than we would have liked, but he was so friendly that we couldn't fault him. We will be back to the Blackhawk Grille very soon."

  • "Took a friend here and we had a great time, and the server was excellent. We ate outdoors and the weather was beautiful. It was a beautiful day to take her for a ride on my Harley in the sunshine, then eat at this cool, elegant restaurant with a great patio. The only drawback (which was not the fault of the restaurant) was there was an aggressive duck that kept coming up to our table expecting food and taking nips at our legs (her's more than mine - can't blame him ;o) ..... Very reasonably priced for the experience you get, imho."

  • "Had a great Valentine's Day Dinner at BG. Prix Fixe menu had plenty of options for me an my Gluten Free wife. Food came out very timely and service was very attentive. I had the crab cakes (ok not great), rack of lamb (delicious) cooked perfectly and a great flourless chocolate cake dessert. Wife had house salad, salmon nad chocolatte mousse. Server was veery attentive and catered to my wife's allergy issues intensively. Really high quality. Would go back next year!"

  • "I made a reservation for my fiance and I for Valentine's Day. When someone from the restaurant called to confirm our reservation, she said, "And by the way, we are doing a 3-course meal for $60 per person for every reservation". I almost cancelled at that point as I neither one of us eat enough to benefit from a 3-course meal and we definitely would not spend $60/person. Note, that did not include wine or cocktails. We are not budget diners. We are totally willing to pay for a nice dinner. It was at this point, prior to ordering our 3rd course - dessert, that we learned the 3-course meal was not "required". It would have been really nice for someone to share that with us from the beginning."

  • "The night before Valentine's Day was when we chose to have our dinner out. Not as crowed, hopefully more quiet. That decsion was right on. As we walked in we were seated right away. I told them we had a reservation but the host pretty much desmissed me. We started off with the fondue appetizer. The veggies were awesome, nice and hot and full of flavor. The cheese, however, was luke warm, I would have preferred piping hot cheese. We also had the mac-n-cheese which was more noodle with runny cheese. Not impressive. We shared the Porter House steak which I ordered medium and it came out rare. I sent it back and it came back well. Not impressed there either. For dessert we ordered the Creme Brulle and it was delicious!"

  • "A small gem, in a difficult location. This is our 3 or 4th visit. Nice ambiance summer and winter. With fantastic service. A creative chef offers an interesting variety of appetizers and entrees. What is also appealing is while they are a bit pricey they also have moderately priced plates that are lovely and good!"

We had the mahi mahi and salmon, split a salad and dessert. Each dish was very tasty and well prepared. We have eaten at the Grille several times for lunch and dinner and not been disappointed. We enjoy the convenience of the Grille and highly recommend it."

  • "Poor service, We were given the wrong entree, had to ask twice for glass of wine ordered, and when bill came we had the wrong entree on our bill ($40). When I told manager what happened he apologized but also kind of laughed it off. I would have expected a small gesture like removing a dessert from the bill or something like a good restaurant would do, but nothing, Not too impressed and won't be returning,"
