I love Black Angus! If we want a steak it’s where we go. Salads are incredible, bread delicious. We had steak and grilled prawns. Just delicious. Never have a bad meal there ever! Keep up the good work

Steak was chewy-and small (7oz ?) could not swallow parts - need to upgrade quality or meat... Or go out of business.
Ordered Breast of chicken received 1/2 inch slice off a breast of chicken with a cold baked potato.
Salad was stringy - stuck to my teeth.
Table was situated in nice private setting, much appreciated.
Possibilities for this restaurant chain is really great but you need some out side help to get it right.
Best of luck. Hope you can make some changes.

We arrived and didn’t get seated until 15mins after our reservation time to celebrate our daughters birthday w/her grandparents. Service was slow and understaffed for sure. Freezing temperature inside for a rainy day. Soup was cold. Food was subpar. Dessert took forever. needless to say we took back our cake that we came in with to celebrate my daughters bday and went home to cut it there. Very disappointing

We had a reservation for 6pm, but had to wait about 20-25 minutes. Front desk not too friendly.
Waitress was excellent, and I told her so. Best waitress to date. I had discount coupons for the dinners, and the food was delicious! The steaks were perfectly cooked, the zucchini appetizer excellent, and the chocolate cake with ice cream and warm chocolate syrup was to die for! I come here quite frequently, and the food is always the best!

Love the hominess of the BA. My only complain is I felt very rushed form one course to the next. I do not like to have my salad arrive when I am having my appetizer, or my main course when eating my salad. My meal was cool when it arrived and cold by the time I ate it. The waiter was excellent and did a nice job. The sodas were tasteless and very week with bubbles and flavor. I couldn't drink. I love the dinner for two when coupon is available . a great deal.
Thanks,
M

This was my 3rd time there. The first there was very good, the 2nd time there the steak was so so, this last time there, I ordered a 16 oz steak, medium rare, but came out medium well and appeared to be the smaller rib eye. I returned it and the proper steak came out and was done right. Appeared to have too much fat on outside, but that’s normal at times. The potato was the usual small size, but overall all, I would still go back again. It’s not a high end steak house but more affordable then Morgan’s or Ruth Chris etc.

The food was fantastic and the service was outstanding as well. I only wish the restaurant would have stayed on the United Mileage Plus dining program as I used to go there at least once a month, but since they dropped off the program, I now go more often to other restaurants that are still in the program.

Took our visiting family for a steak dinner, 4 adults, 1 post college grad and a 6 year old. Everything was good, except my tri-tip steak was hard to chew; was flavorful tho’. Service was very good, until we were finished and ready to leave. It took too long for our check to come.

Hostess need to be trained to be more friendly. She wasn't rude but wasn't friendly either. Same goes for our server. The impression we got was that they did not want to be there. In addition, our server forgot our soup and was not attentive to refilling our drinks.

AFTER BEING SEATED THE WAIT WAS EXTREMELY LONG. THE RIBEYE/SPENCER STEAK I ORDERED WAS NOT OF THE SAME QUALITY OR TEXTURE AS IN THE PAST, WAS OVER COOKED AND MOST LIKELY WAS A NEW YORK STEAK AS THE SERVER THOUGHT BUT CORRECTED HER SELF WHEN SHE REALIZED WHAT WAS REALLY ORDERED. I WOULD HAVE REJECTED THE MEAL BUT THE WAIT WAS ALREADY TOO LONG.

Had a coupon for the trio steak, lobster and shrimp. Requested steak medium well came out crust and very dry. Server did not make an effort to come by for drink refills. Brought out my daugheoice cream while she was still eating and did not ask if he could bring it. In addition to bringing ice cream while we still eating he brought the bill and never came back. Didn’t ask us if we needed refills or even if we wanted dessert. The table in front of us was asked and had much better service by same waiter. I was not amused by the service and I think it might have been because we had a coupon. Might think twice about going back.

This is the only steakhouse left in the neighborhood, but at least it was the best of them. We were there on a busy evening but got our table for 5 exactly at the time we had reserved. Service was excellent. Particularly like this place because the noise level is low enough to have a conversation with table-mates without raising voices.

I won’t be going back there. I ordered a steak medium rare and part of it was well done. The steak was thick at one side and very thin at the other. I don’t expect to be served a steak that is so uneven. I was offered another steak but by the time they did I had already eaten half of it.

Love the Campfire deals here. We always take the appetizer and dessert home ,since the main entree is ample.
The atmosphere is nice and cozy. The steaks are good. Sometimes they seem overcooked. But often it takes the kitchen some time,so sending it back is no option for me. The lobster tails were really nice that come free with the dinner,.However,after the first couple of times months ago,they got smaller and smaller,and the last time ,it just looked like a big shrimp.
The grilled shrimp are very good. Salads always crispy and super fresh.
Mudhigh pie is awesome. So are the chicken fingers ,nachos and shrimp cocktail.
