This is one of the last of the good steak houses in this town-- it always has good food and the seating is booths set aside for privacy--- and now the reservations make it easier to get seated in a timely manner in a good Booth.
The service is always friendly and efficient.. and the servers are well informed.

Came for Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful despite them being very busy. Reservation was for 8:15 and we were seated by 8:30. They ran out of some sides for the Thanksgiving dinner but I believe they gave us extra turkey in place of that. Everything was delicious and we went home with leftovers. Great experience and I would definitely recommend them!

The serves was great, even though she showed zero emotions, which understandable for busy thanksgiving night, she was super fast and very polite. Food definitely was prepared in advance and mashed potatoes were cold but still I was surprised with the quality. Overall very satisfied with the experience.

Thanksgiving meal special, wasn’t special. Reservations were 30 minutes behind. They sat us 20 minutes late and the table they chose wasn’t cleared off yet. They ran out of sweet potatoes and substituted mash potatoes. Entire plate was cold, except for the mash potatoes they substituted. Then they served us frozen pumpkin pie for desert. Felt bad for the wait staff as they were clearly understaffed.
We usually go there mid week to avoid the crowds. They gave us two 30% off coupons to use before the next 30 days.
Only saving grace was the leftovers were good the next day after microwaving them.
Truly disappointed. But things happen.

We go to another Black Angus with no problem, but this one is mismanaged. It was overbooked, had to wait 30 minutes to be seated and that was because we gave up and went to the bar. Food came cold, sent it back, still cold on arrival. And this location’s rest room is always a mess. 😩

This was thanksgiving and the place was a madhouse - elbow to elbow people! Even with the crowd, we were only 5 minutes late for our table (party of 5). And then it was downhill from there. Took forever for someone to take our orders. Two of our party ordered shrimp cocktail, which they never got. Ever body agreed the salads were poor. There was one prime rib order, and it was not up to Black Angus standards. One order was lobster tail with filet mignon, and the dinner was not hot! He also ordered extra hot melted butter for his lobster, and he got extra butter for his bread. The only 2 dinners that were acceptable were salmon with rice. Usually, Black Angus is one of our favorite places, but never again for thanksgiving.

Service was rated 3 stars because of the reservation being 30 minutes late. We were not told anything by the hostesses about being behind. Plus, people who arrived after us, with the same party # and a reservation time after us were seated first. Not a very good start to our experience.

My compliments to our waitress. When we arrived my date and I wanted to spend some time talking. The waitress accommodated us and, while taking care of our drink needs, didn't bother us until we were ready to order. She was there when we needed her, but otherwise invisible to us. She was the perfect waitress for the occasion.

Steak was ordered rare and came out very tough and basically inedible. Food was under seasoned and food service timing was way off. We waited 10 mins to be greeted at the table, 10 mins after ordering for specialty drinks, 10 mins later we got our salads, followed a minute later by our entrees. Desert was ordered once we got our entrees, and came out 10 minutes after we were completely done eating. Not sure if it was the server's fault, it seemed like maybe more of a kitchen, bar and lack of staff on the floor issues. But either way I won't be returning. I still tipped about 16% to 17% despite the sub par birthday dinner for my mom.

This was our 3rd or 4th time to have dinner here and all have been good, this last one
I would rank as probably the best in terms of the dinner itself, I had the filet and my friend
had the salmon and both were very good. We will not hesitate to return.

Enjoyed a nice steak dinner with my husband. We opted to sit in the bar area (where it's first come, first served) so we could watch the baseball playoff game. Food was really good. My only complaint is that it would have been nice to get cloth napkins & not paper napkins. I'm not sure if we should have asked for them or if they just don't have them anymore. Other than that, we enjoyed our dinner which was satisfying & very reasonably priced.

Black Angus is usually a treat; it's more expensive than other restaurants we go to, and enjoy this as a get-together with friends. Was a little disappointed in this visit. The potato skins were great, as usual, and there was plenty of food. But both my son's prime rib and my "filet" were not cooked as ordered, and there were a couple of other mistakes with the order. Additionally, the quality of the food was not up to par. For example, the "homestyle mashed potatoes" were the consistency of a baked potato that had been dumped out and mashed up. The filet was only about 1/2" thick. Our waitress was great and quick to refill drinks, etc.

Food is consistently well prepared and tasty. Service is excellent. This is one of the few restaurants where you can have a quiet dinner (at dinner time) and not be overwhelmed by loud talking from other diners. It’s an excellent value.
