Ordered my meal to be prepared well done and it came out rare. The wait staff corrected it after about 20 minutes and after the rest of our party had finished. I was handed a full price bill for a meal I did not eat, at a mostly empty table, the meal was not boxed to go. I said thank you to the waitress and she did not make eye contact or acknowledge my statement.

Been going to Black Angus since it opened. Always enjoy the meal. Sorry to hear it will be closing down at this location if lease is not renewed. Do not care for the El Cajon location because of the wide open design. It looks like a mess hall and usually has a couple of screaming kids. What is so nice about the old design is the quiet and privacy. If the kids make noise you can barely hear them. If something works don't change it. The old saying is "if it ain't broke don't fix it"!

We are very saddened to hear that this Black Angus may close at the end of the year. I hope that this Black Angus will stay because the community will and has supported this establishment for such a long time. I love the food and service.

While the food & wine was good, the overall poor service overshadowed the experience. Upon arrival ~10 min prior to my 7:15 reservation I was informed by the manager that due to the wait list they were pushing my reservation back. At first he did not know how long they were changing my reservation for, but when pressed he estimated 20min. The staff failed to meet that estimate and we were seated 35min late. We were met by the waiter relatively quickly, who then disappeared for almost 15min before returning to take our drink order. Wait for drinks was almost another 10min and one was wrong. I strongly doubt that I would ever dine at this location again.

Prices have gone up but there can still be some good deals with some of the newspaper or club coupons offered by Black Angus. Although it's a bit extra, the Caesar Salad is always delicious choice. Very, very disappointed that the fried onion rings have been removed as a menu option except if you order the burger, where only two are included on the burger. The onion rings were one of my favorite menu items and one that specifically made me chose Black Angus as a lunch and dinner destination.

We decided to go to Black Angus for a steak dinner unfortunately my Mom's steak was so chewy that she barely ate much of it. I was hoping she would of had a great dinner as it's one of her first outing since being diagnosed with Ovarian cancer so I was very disappointed. Our waitress was pleasant but it took her forever to bring our bread we had to ask her for it. We use to go to your restaurant regularly but I'm not sure we want to try it again.

Black Angus (at least the one I frequent) has a group of employees that literally go out of the way to make sure you are taken care of; have everything you need. Some restaurants let your glass empty before they even ask you to refill. If you have one of their unlimited beverages, they will refill it frequently (you never run out). If you have a drink, then they will ask you before you have finished if you would like another. Overall, the waitresses have bee excellent on every visit.

My husband and I go to the same Black Angus atleast 2 times a month. Never have I had bad food tell Friday. My prime rib was dry and over cooked. My potatoe was burnt on one side and the bread in the beginning was to hard on the outside to eat. My husbands dinner was perfect. Before you ask no I didn't send it back because like I said we have never had this happen before. Even cooks have a bad day. We will wait awhile before going back and might have to try Texas Roadhouse for our next steak dinner.

Service is definitely not that great. Was told it would be a 10-15 min wait ... we waited for over 40 mins. Immediately when we sat down, we were ready to order so that we did not waste anytime since we were headed to a concert. Food did not come out until almost 45 mins later AFTER we already asked for check to leave because the service was so horrible! The server did not once come and check on us, our food, or our dining experience. Hostess was rude. So over this place in general and I would not dine here again.

The food was better than expected! We enjoyed having our date night dinner here. We used a coupon & were pleasantly surprised at the quality & portions. We’ll definitely be returning!

The only bad thing about Black Angus is they make you wait to be seated even when you have a reservation.

We had a very efficient waitress. She brought our salads in a timely manner. However, the restaurant was extremely busy so it took a little long for our dinner to arrive. The waitress apologized and brought us a complimentary dessert for the inconvenience. We go there often and have always been satisfied with the food and service.

Disappointed that the wait for a table was 25 minutes for a table of 3 after making a reservation.

I was greeted upon arrival and my reservation was verified. I then approached the hostess station. She again validated my reservation and then wrote up my table ticket informing me there were two reservations ahead of me.

Food was prepared as requested with appetizer hot & crunchy, salad cold & crisp, steaks served as each of us described, and drinks were tasty.

Attentive server offering great recommendations She was personable and friendly despite having many tables to service

Black Angus is always the go-to place for the solid, old-fashioned, mid-Western meal. Reminds me a lot of the meals and service you enjoyed at the country clubs or at the restaurants near the stock yards in the Kansas City area. Just downright comfortable.

Bang for the buck. Delivers steak and the usual sides in a pleasant atmosphere. Service is usually excellent. They do the steaks properly.
I love their fancy cocktails.

Great value for the price. Way better than Outback, way cheaper than Ruth Chris.

Can be noisy at times.
