We were seated right away with our reservation although we were about 15 minutes early. The table was in a booth for four people so we had plenty of room. The food was very good, my wife had the filet which was very tender and good. I had the balsamic- marinated beef which was also very good, It was a Friday night, but the service was fair to slow. The waiter never checked to see if we needed water or anything else after our food arrived. The waiter forgot our coupon which caused us a delay in leaving for approximately 25 minutes.

I know this was the luck of the draw, but there was a party of six at the table across from us. They were older, but had quite a bit to drink. They were loud and telling jokes. Two of the women had a very loud laugh, (my wife called it a "Cackle") . They were done eating , but stayed to visit and "Cackle".

The table next to us was a family with several small children. They were good for awhile, but became bored. One young girl continually kept kicking the bench, causing us to experience the jarring. Two of the other children continued to scream and tease each other. There was NO PARENTAL CONTROL.

It was a negative experience for my wife and I to have one of the few dinners we go out to eat to be ruined that way. Next time I feel like a steak, I will cook it at home.

We were seated immediately. Great friendly service. Our drinks were constantly filled and server made sure by frequently checking back to see if we had everything we needed. Timing of food was perfect. Thanks.

We had a slow start, with the server taking time to come to the table, but he apologized and said that he had not been told that we had been seated.

Once he knew we were there, the service was great, as was the food.

We were there to celebrate our anniversary. Very satisfied with the pricing and quality of the food. We will certainly visit again.

The steak, lobster and shrimp dinner was a great deal and well done and tasty.

They had new staff on that were trying to get it right. We were seated immediately. Server was friendly and apologetic. Missed on timing and forgotten food items. . Manager took care of kitchen oversight without asking and included free desert. Good experience for a lot of mishaps with a smile. Will be back.

Dirty silverware, bent fork and poor service. Some of the food was good, some bad, some just ok. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it.

We were seated quickly. Our waiter, a handsome young man, was very good and let me purchase Black Angus’s wonderful blue cheese dressing to take home. The food was prepared perfectly and we were glad we ate thee! The hostesses were very welcoming with great smiles!

I usually have a good experience but Monday was not as pleasant. My waitress was amazing! Very understanding and attentive; however, my steak was an inconvenience.

I ordered a my filet mignon to be below medium (not medium rare just slightly before medium and told her it’s no way to mess this up if pulled before medium). Well my date’s steak was perfect just as ordered (medium). My steak was well done. No pink in sight. Waitress acknowledge this without me saying anything. She returned it and I had the privilege of watching my date eat without me being that it was a steak.

10 minutes passed and the manager I presume returned with a new steak and waited for me to cut into it. Well this steak was medium rare (very rare center). Again without me saying anything it was returned and I had the privilege of watching my date finish the entire meal. After 30+ minutes without a steak to eat I decided I would rather leave and take my steak home. Somewhat ruined the evening to be honest. That was a first and my date recommended we not return. Overall great service excluding the whole no main entree for $62+.

My meal charge was removed but let’s be honest. I had to buy a burger on the way home. Horrid experience for a first time date.

We enjoyed our time with family, although my husbands prime rib was very fatty this time. Not the normal juicy steak.

You need to check it out first chance you get. Their specials are the best. Thanks.

Always have great service when we are able to get our requested server, Peter. He makes sure timing if dinner is great, drinks refilled and steak is cooked just right. Shrimp is good too.

This place is always a hit and miss. Sometimes it's busy and loud and others it's calm/quiet. The service is the same way. This time around the server was robotic and I know we've had her a few times. She went through the motions and there was nothing special here. She must hate her job or was having a bad day. Oh well.

We have always been fans of the Black Angus however, our latest experience was not as pleasant as before. For appetizer, we ordered the fried zucchini and it was very dry and bitter, so we asked the server to change it to shrimp cocktail which was good. Fillet mignon was ok but the sirloin steak was mediocre.
We may not go back for a while and instead may go to other steak houses.

Have always been a fan of Black Angus, but tonight just wasn’t great. The food, as usual, was awesome. But the service was just not good at all. Corinne, our waitress, had a slight attitude and an expression of “I don’t want to be here.” She checked on us once and forgot my moms teriyaki sauce for her steak. We had ask a busboy to go find her to remind her. I also had ask for a refill, whereas in the past, the waitress would keep a watchful eye on my table and know when to bring it. The clenched was when we got the bill. I told Corinne that my mom and I were splitting the bill and she immediately asked “So...is she going to give me a separate card or what?” She didn’t even check to see that there were two cards in the black book that has the check. We both have the same looking bank card, but still. Then, when she brought the little black books back with our cards she put them
On the table and claimed “I don’t know which is which but have a good day.” Uh...you can’t open the book and see? She needs some customer service training. Won’t be back to this location.

After getting such high praise from friends about the rib eye steak dinner, we decided to order it (not what we usually get there). My wife's steak was very tender however mine was very fatty and grizzly. To say the least, I was very disappointed and will never order it again.

This restaurant used to be really good. The last 3 times, it has gotten worse and worse. The table was sticky, service slow, waiter confused and food was low quality. For example, I ordered the ribeye with broccoli. I requested it medium rare, but it looked like it hadn't even touched a grill. Maybe 4 minutes in the oven? It was very rare and the broccoli was mostly huge stems with the leaves still attached.
Regular iced tea has refills, but flavored tea does not. I guess that pump of flavor is very expensive. The waiter said that the flavored iced tea came in a bigger glass but because my friend asked for easy ice, he brought it in a small glass. Also he was very slow clearing the table.
Bummer, I used to like Black Angus. We won't be back.

Food came out separately when we were a party of 6. One appetizer came out and we had to wait a long time for the others. Once we got the appetizers they tried to serve us our salads right away instead of spacing the courses properly.
