Another great date night out. The porterhouse is exceptional and the service Tim and the staff provide make this a five star experience.

My first time to this restaurant and I was not disappointed, first off I put five stars on the service but it’s more like six, I mean it. You have three different servers a man waiter and someone else who brings her food and then somebody who clears away things you don’t need and brings you beverages. But even with that amount of people they were unobtrusive in their visit for the table and left quickly. The food was unbelievably good, I had the Chilean Seabass and it was Done to perfection but the sides that came with it were so good I couldn’t leave them alone. Looking forward to going again next week for my birthday this time I’m going to try the steak.

Exceptional as always. We did miss having Eli as server, but will excuse her since she was having her wedding rehearsal dinner (at B & B, of course). Tim and Mel were took great care of us and great to see Travis transitioning over to B & B where he belongs! Chef Michael created another fantastic pasta special with large shrimps and vegetables in a very flavorful pesto sauce. I was going to have the steak and lobster but the pasta sounded too good to pass up...and it was! The potato leek soup was very good and of course the filet mignon wraps continue to be the best starter...ever. Luis, thanks again for keeping B & B running so well.

I have been to the Black and Blue Steakhouse a couple of times. I keep coming back because the food is great, the service Is great, nice atmosphere and warm feeling in the restaurant. I have to say the Surf and Turf dish was the best for me, the lobster, crab cake, filet , there were a lot of items on the plate, so much that I had to take some home. I have to say it is always an enjoyable time when we go to the Black and Blue.

Very basic menu. Their bread is AMAZING. The rest of the menu is very standard. There is a lot of room for improvement of the decor of the place. The walls look very busy with paintings but the bar/wood fire oven area looks dead. For being a casino it's passable but the price of the food and quality, it's not worth it. I would not think of this place as a good dinner place if I was in the area. Will probably not come back.

A must return for any that have dined at Black and Blue in the past as they have brought back the steak wrap appetizers with the peanut sauce....best appetizer ever, anywhere! Still don't understand why it has been off the menu for 3+ years, crazy! Also many other new items, especially in the appetizer and side dish sections. Split pea soup was as good or better than mom's, but don't tell her! Lobster pot pie was a little disappointing as it definitely lacked lobster for its' $20 price tag as a gourmet side, taste was good, but not great. Maki roll topped with yellowtail and jalapeno was excellent. We always have Eli and Mel as our servers, both are friendly, professional and as good as you will find at any high end restaurant. The manager Luis has such a good staff that he is often too busy helping at other restaurants in the casino so we don't get to see him as often as we like...a shame as he is a real gentleman and a great manager.

Complimentary apps nice touch.

Bread was nice.

However Slow service ( over 1 hour to have 7 oz filet with no apps)

Steaks were over charred. Not up to “best steakhouse” slogan.

My guy was quite impressed. His lobster & Dungeness crab was "maybe the best thing I've ever eaten." My favorite part was the Hawaiian black rock salt butter. Too tasty! It was a busy night & the service was just a bit below 5 stars.

The servers were very nice and professional. We did ask for lemon which we never got. Honestly I will rate the food a 4/10. We did not like the salads with those giant fried cheese balls considering the salad is called a field greens salad and seemed to be premade hours earlier. The nut, olive and cheese appetizer was tasteless.
The Salmon was good. The dessert was the Cheesecake Parfait and it was mainly whipping cream, would have better if it were a piece of cheesecake. The entire meal per person was 45$, very expensive for the mediocre food.

Great dining experience to celebrate our anniversary.
Dined in the cozy wine room which was chilly but they left the sliding door open to make it warmer.
Great service,wine & food.
Ordered their signature surf & turf.
There was a huge lobster tail,crab leg,scallop,shrimp,filet, vegetable, & 2 different kinds of potatoes.
The bread basket & coffee also were very impressive.
We got to play a fun card game to determine the price of our dinners.
They were normally $85 each but we got lucky and got both meals for $35.
The restaurant staff gave us a yummy complimentary dessert for our anniversary.
In addition brought us yummy cookies.
Needless to say we went home with a big doggie bag.
We will be back!
