A Favorite Gem
Col. Blackington In has been a favorite resturant of mine since it opened. It continues to to have superb food and service. There is always a good selection to choose from and everyone is very friendly. It is a very relaxing atmosphere. I recommend it to all my friends. We take advantage of the Pre Fix Dinner when there is a group of us meeting for dinner. I was there for dinner this week and I am returning with a friend for lunch tomorrow. I hope to dine outside if it isn't too hot.
I have attended several gatherings in the carriage house, a perfect intimate place for small parties. Whether you dine there for brunch, lunch,or dinner, you always leave satisfied!

I always test a restaurant with thei eggs benedict anf this passed with flying colors - on a croissant rather than english muffin. My husband had his over crab cakes,! Nice change!

I have dined here several times and think the Wednesday night is the best- very low noise, excellent service, perfect meal!

another lovely evening
We celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary. We have gone to Blackington Inn for past anniversaries, and it is the perfect romantic spot. The food is always excellent, and the service supreme. One of our favs.

Colonel Blackinton Inn is Special
We organized a special family dinner for my parents' anniversary this past weekend and were extremely pleased with every aspect of our experience. Booking the reservation was easy and the restaurant followed up by phone to discuss my special requests. They also sent an email confirmation and called to confirm that morning. We were able to buy a Montillio's cake through the restaurant which was terrific. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. It's a lovely, cozy atmosphere with several different rooms for dining or a pretty garden setting outside. There was a jazz duo playing which was perfect - not too loud and great ambience setting.
It's a great special-even restaurant - we will be back.

We had reservations for the
We had reservations for the jazz brunch and wanted to sit outside weather permitting, when we arrived the weather weather was iffy, the band had set up inside. Kim asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside, we chose to take our chances and sit outside, the trio moved their set up out side and a table, for fifteen, was set up in no time! The food was excellent and came in a timely manner.
I also had a larger function at the Blackington and would recommend it for any special occasion. The carriage house is private and has everything you need, also handicap accessible, it was very convenient.
You couldn't find a more accommodating place if you tried!

Fun night out
We went with a group of 8 to see Mike Dutra doing 'Strictly Sinatra'. Fun entertainment and food good but not very creative. Attentive and personable wait staff. Sit on the patio if it's a nice night. Perfect for a special occasion.or with a group.

Enjoy the small rooms, can't wait to go back when the fireplace is lite. My son had the largest prime rib I have ever seen.
Everyone's meal was excellent. The service was very good and the server was very pleasant.

We celebrated our 44th anniversary on Saturday. We have been to the Blackington several times and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere inside is quiet, very conducive to a pleasant special dinner. The stuffed quahogs were delicious. The ribeye perfectly done and the blackened swordfish fresh and tasty. Prices are moderate, I had the ribeye from the menu rather than the special, and its a better value. The wine list is very reasonable. Overall a very nice spot for a special occasion or just a nice dinner

We are always comfortable
We are always comfortable eating at the Colonel Blackinton Inn and equally comfortable recommending it to our friends. It is casual yet elegant. The food is always excellent, and the service is one-on-one friendly. We can always count on a great dining experience at the Blackinton.

Other than that everything was great.

Always a great place for a mid-summer dinner. Eating outdoors with a jazz combo in the background was wonderful.

Excellent Food & Dining Experience
This restaurant has the best food and it was cooked to perfection. The dining room was very quiet and we sat at a nice corner table near the fireplace. It was very romantic. The service was great as well. I love this place! We will definately be going back for our next special occassion dinner.

Our experience was very good at the Blackinton Inn. Our waiter, Bernie was amazing and very informative regarding the menu. Our drinks were great! We ordered the bruschetta as an appetizer, which to be honest, wasn't anything special, but was still good. I ordered a Pasta, Lobster, and Shrimp dish which was perfect! My boyfriend got the NY strip which he ordered Medium. He said it was overcooked, but still decent. We ordered chocolate cake for dessert which was great! Overall our experience was great and we would go back again for a special occasion.

Lovely setting for special occasion meal. Food choices good, nice table setting with linens and fresh flowers. Waitress friendly, but disappeared during meal -- served food, forgot drinks. Hard to get second cup of coffee, however enough staff was easy to flag down another server. Not a "cookie cutter" restaurant', very nice for special occasion -- intimate, warm setting and good value for brunch. Overall, very enjoyable and recommended.

Looking for a romantic dinner?
We've been to the Blackington Inn a few times and always enjoy the romantic ambiance. It's a wonderful restaurant to share a special occasion. Highly recommend!!

Always A Great Experience!
I had my Manager from California in town for a business meeting/visit, and I wanted to avoid the 'usual chains' (TGIF, Longhorn, etc.) I can always count on Colonel Blackinton Inn to impress a Visitor ... We had great service from "Bernie" (from the Caribbean) ... I know not to even look at the Menu until I hear the variety of fabulous choices from the Daily Specials - and sure enough, we both selected one of the Specials that night. It was fantastic - as usual. The grounds/landscaping add to the charm of this place. It may looked cramped, hard to drive in to, but they valet park for you so that's not an issue either. Thanks to all @ Colonel Blackinton Inn for another great experience! Keep up the good work!

Sunday Night Date
Megan our waitress was beyond excellent. Petit Filet was good, however, not Capital Grill level and lettuce on the house salad was somewhat wilted . Probably sitting in the frog too long ! Food could have been hotter. That being said we will be back .
I would suggest pillows on the banquet iin the little room off the bar. Would certainly make it more comfortable.
Don't mistake me for a "COMPLAINER" I just expect excellence when I leave my kitchen .

I've lived in the City of Attleboro for 23 years and this was the first time I visited the Colonel Blackinton Inn. I've always heard it was nice. Everything about the Colonel Blackinton Inn was wonderful. The only complaint I have would be the prices. They're extremely high, but I guess you get what you pay for.

My friend and i had not been out for lunch in some time. She recommended the Blackinton Inn.
We were very pleased that we took the ride from Warwick, RI to Attleborough. My friend had the special, roasted pork and I had chicken. Each entree was excellent with seasonal vegetables that were fresh and colorful. The service was pleasant and helpful.
We were very satisfied with our meal but we could not pass on the dessert. We had a pumpkin bread with caramel and ice cream, topped with whipped cream. We ate it all. Highly recommend this charming restaurant and Inn.

Great spot to go to for dinner. First time there and def will come back again some time soon. Food was great and the service was also good. Went for a nice dinner - just two if us and will come back soon with family and friends for dinner. Great spot to check out if you live near by.

The Inn is always consistent with quality of food and service whether you dine once a week or once a year. Their ability to adjust to diet needs without sacrifice of taste is remarkable. Everything cooked to perfection!!!

My wife and I always love visiting this restaurant. It's amazing that a fine restaurant is in Attleboro, but this one is just as good as any restaurant in Boston!

We had Bernard as our server on Saturday nov 2nd. He was unbelievably friendly, funny and knew the menu like it was his social security number. Have nothing but great things to say about him and the food. I will definitely be back.

Can't go wrong
Blackinton Inn is old school elegance with a very now menu! The environment is perfect for a power lunch or a marriage proposal. The staff treat you like family and the food is very good! I've never had an experience at Blackinton that was any less than excellent!

If you like soft Jazz…
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday because she is a Jazz lover and the Inn offers a Jazz Brunch. Unfortunately, unless you are seated directly in the room where the musicians are situated you can’t really enjoy the jazz. Other than that, everything was fine. But if you coming here for the jazz be sure to make your reservations well in advance and ask to be in the same room as the musicians.
