Colonel Blackinton Inn - Attleboro Ratings and Reviews
We had a fantastic repas last evening for my birthday. Our waiter, Bernard aka Bernie described the evenings specials as if he were the chef preparing the ingredients himself for a guest. He described each dish with a great savoir- faire and was passionate in each description. Bernie was very attentive to our every need and we ask for him again in the future.
Had a casual afternoon lunch here with my wife and we were very impressed. This may very well be our new regular date location. We ate outside on an incredible 78° September day with a gentle breeze. The table bread was brought out with water (that comes with lemon without asking) and right away we knew we were in for a great meal! The bread was perfectly toasty with warm soft inside served with a melted butter dipping sauce. My wife ordered the baked scrod and absolutely loved it and I had the salmon... wow! After we ate, we walked through the inside dining area and bar and were equally impressed. Do yourself a favor, don't browse any further for your next date restaurant.
THE BLACKINGTON IS A SPECIAL PLACE. INDOORS OR OUTDOORS IT HAS AN AMBIANCE SPECIAL ONLY TO THE BLACKINGTON. THIS IS INHANCED BY THE WAITERS AND CERTAINLY THE CHEF. WE HAVE COME WITH SPECIAL FRIENDS AND BY OURSLELVES FOR THE 28 YEARS WE HAVE LIVED NEARBY. WE HAVE COME WITH PLANS MADE WEEKS IN ADVANCE AND SPUR OF THE MOMENT. WE MOVED TO MASSACHUSETTS 28 YEARS AGO AND STAYED AT THE BLACKINGTON WHILE WE LOOKED FOR A PLACE TO LIVE.
For years I have driven by this place and have always wanted to try it. On our anniversary yesterday we called and reserved a table rather last minute after reviewing it online and trying Open Table for the first time from my phone. It was so easy to use Open Table and they had a spot open in 15 minutes which happened to be how far away we were so we took it. Our meals were perfectly delicious and serving sizes were more than enough. The service was fabulous-even while our waitress was training another waitress. We will most certainly go back again!
This was our first dining experience at the Colonel Blackinton Inn. The dining rooms were pleasantly furnished and very quiet since they did not contain too many tables. The waitstaff was excellent - knowledgeable and efficient. The four of us enjoyed our lunch choices and were happy that we found a restaurant where we could converse. Today so many restaurants are too noisy since people tend to talk and laugh loudly. We hope to return to the Colonel Blackinton since we had a very nice experience. We would have enjoyed eating outside on the inviting, flowered terrace but the day was just too warm. Perhaps the next time.
We sat outside on the patio. The landscaping was beautiful with flowers and fountains. There were candles and torches also. It took some time before we ordered drinks. They were busy with a large party in the carriage house. Once we had ordered, the food and drinks arrived promptly. Our waitstaff was friendly and the food and drinks were very good.
We've been coming to The Colonel for 11 years now. Everything is always perfect. The wait staff is amazing, the menu and specials are wonderful and attention is paid to detail. During the summer there is music outside most nights, and the Sunday brunch also has music.
The menu has a wide variety of choices - something for everyone. The wine menu is very good, offering imported as well as US wines, by the glass and by the bottle.
The outside dining area is lovely, and for large private parties, there is a beautiful carriage house.
The Inn offers rooms for rent as well as dining.
Beautiful outdoor area great for a romantic night but inside it is an old New England home/restaurant so typical architectural charm on top of that are hand painted murals on walls & ceilings surrounding one in tasteful class. Our waiter had a welcoming friendly air about him that put all at ease & our food came quick , salad, clam chowder and onion soup, all of which were scraped to the bottom of their bowls, our main courses followed quickly chicken parm, lobster, prime rib and my wife's diablo all excellent proven by the fact that we all had to sample each plate, mirrored again during desert now is it expensive ? Yes, is it somewhat small and need reservations, yes is it a bit out of the way (boston boy) yes, but if your tired of going to supposedly classy places that turn out to be just higher priced chain restaurants with Highschool drop out chefs and staff holding your food in one hand and their cell phones in the other than trust me take a chance, come here admire the intimate surroundings, delight in the professionalism of the staff and be satisfied with the chef's superior creations and for once go home satisfied on all phases of your dining experience.
My wife had a filet and loved it. Too bad I could not say the same. The Rib Eye entree ($35 ), tasted nothing like RIb Eye and was dry. I did not feel I got the money's worth. A nice place and great service. But the steak I was served did not make me want to return.
Once again we had a memorable, romantic anniversary dinner at our favorite spot, colonel Blackinton. We sat outside in the midst of gorgeous flowers, enjoying the live music. I had one of the evening's specials for dinner while my husband had his favorite baked seafood casserole. The service was perfect, as was everything else.
Our waitress and the hostess were friendly and attentive. We were seated promptly and offered either indoor or outdoor seating for our 11:30 Brunch reservation. The food was wonderful especially the salmon and the omelet station. We will definitely return the restaurant either for brunch or dinner.
CBI always deliverers a quality experience. The food selection, from a laundry list of daily specials to a wounderfully full menu, the attention to detail does not go unnoticed. I'm the type that always chooses from the daily specials, convinced that their the freshest, not one but two seafood entries, swordfish with grilled shrimp and red snapper with scallops, appeared as well as a stuffed bone in veal chop. Three others as well but I can't remember them. Anyhow gotta go. Up here in Burlington Vt. Time to go have more fun, food, beverage.
First two experiences at Blackinton were very good. Third (our anniversary), recently, was poor, especially given the expense of dining there. The drink I ordered didn't not contain the ingredients as advertised on the menu. Our waitress didn't know the price of one of the specials, went to find it and forgot to return. The bus boy couldn't answer a question because he didn't speak English. The Filet Mignon I ordered had both a strange texture and taste; I ate a little and then couldn't finish it. My wife's experience was better than mine but that didn't help me.
We had a wonderful experience for our anniversary. Justin, our waiter, was very interested in making sure that our service was first-class. The atmosphere is quaint and quiet despite the fact that a wedding was taking place that night. An apology for slower service included cocktails on the house. We had not noticed that the service was slow. The food was excellent and well-presented.
Cannot find a negative word for our experience.
What a beautiful restaurant. The atmosphere was as you would have wanted, Romantic and personal. The waitstaff friendly and ready to serve and making wonderful suggestions when asked. This was our third time at the Blackington 1st experience was not so good we went the day after our wedding for a romantic dinner and an hour later we still had not had our dinner order taken, so we left supper disappointed however the owners invited us back and the service and night was 5 star we vowed after to return each year for our anniversary and its what we did to celebrate our 1st with many, many more to come and many more opportunity's to enjoy this beautiful restaurant. If you can choose a night to sit on the patio live entertainment and delicious food makes this the place for a impressive date night!
The Inn offers a wide selection of food and drink options, at reasonable prices. At certain hours, they have a Prix Fix menu with a few choices. They have some different salad options that are excellent. Just a nice, comfortable place for dining, inside or outside.
Something for everyone. summer outdoor dining with concert series music. Indoor very quaint colonial home ,superb dining experience. Just beautiful no matter which room you are seated in. Private room for small functions and the Carriage house for larger (30 to 40) events. I have used both in the past and also an intimate quiet dinner for two or more. Food is outstanding, service is top notch. Never disappointed. Great place for those special occasion dinners. Extensive wine list and bar service for those special cocktails. Have also been to the Sunday Brunch. Best around the area.
Had dinner at the Colonel Blackinton Inn for the first time the other night with my wife. We were surprised to find this little gem that we had heard of but never driven by before. The valet parking was great and a must with the tiny parking area. We sat outside under the tent on the patio and they had a singer playing guitar from 6-9 which really added to the ambiance. The outdoor seating is in a nice little garden area with lots of flowers. The food was excellent, from the Carpaccio appetizer and the delicious crusty bread to the entrees. I had the Chicken Aragosto, which was served with asparagus and lobster. My wife had the Beef Tips Gorgonzola which was also tasty, with perfectly cooked parpadelle noodles. The only criticism of the food (and its a small one) was that the flourless chocolate cake was served a little chilled, and those are usually better closer to room temperature to allow the flavor to really bloom. That being said, it was still very decadent and had a hint of Grand Marnier. Can't wait to come back and try brunch.
My friend and I were in town for one night, so we used Open Table to find a good spot. This had great reviews. We check in with the hostess and she seats us at a table right next to a screaming infant. We asked to switch tables and she suggested a booth at the bar. We were the only table in there and thought we would get better service... except that the bartender must have also been playing manager that night and was hardly there. The steaks were excellent; we had a filet and a ribeye; however the mashed was more butter than potato and the mixed veggies were too bland and tasted like charcoal (but they clearly were steamed... weird). And the ration was 80% cauliflower and 20% other. The bernaise I ordered with the filet came out almost whipped and cold, like it had been removed from the fridge and the chef forgot to heat it. I exchanged it for the horseradish cream. On a good note, the side salad came out chilled with a delicious housemade bleu cheese dressing.
To completely top off our dinner, the featured musician karaokeing Frank Sinatra put his amplifier on way too loud and we could no longer hear each other. I was not impressed with this restaurant whatsoever.
First, I must say it was a tremendous meal with great service. My only issue is the flooring (weird but true). I had on moderate heels, 2", and had a hard time navigating. The floors are very slippery - the high shine wood floors look great but I now realize why even the hostess was wearing "sensible" shoes. On top of that, there are numerous places throughout where the flooring changes height. I'm not talking actual steps but where different areas are 1" higher or lower (with a lip) from adjoining areas. This means you absolutely have to walk with your head down to spot the trouble spots. I know it is a historic building, but it looks like that could be fixed (expensively I'm sure but still). So I guess my word of advice is - don't wear heels! when you dine at the Blackinton Inn.
Valet was lovely - while we have been to the Colonel Blackington before, this young man provided an excellent "opening" impression. The hostess was lovely, seating us in a nice quiet spot with very comfy seating by a window. Wait staff were attentive but never intrusive. Waiter was especially gracious, ensuring hubby received the requested extra olives in his martini. The food was AMAZING. While we were sorely tempted to order one of the specials , we opted to stick with the Italian and we were not disappointed. My husband is a big fan of Veal Parmesan, and he said it was THE BEST HE EVER HAD! I had the Eggplant Parmesan and must agree that it was HEAVENLY.
We never, ever felt rushed. This was a relaxingly paced meal/experience which we thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks for a terrific evening Col. Blackinton!
The service is outstanding from the moment you want through the door.
The menu choices are excellent as well as the nightly specials.
Food is of the highest quality and prepared to perfection.
I had the prime rib. It was out of this world.
My wife had the eggplant parm, she is still talking about how good it was.
We have always looked forward to dining at Colonel Blackinton Inn and this recent visit was no exception. There were four of us this time, for lunch. The ambiance and service was top notch, as always. 2 of my guests were very happy with their choices in dishes. However, I ordered the fish and chips and the chips, although cooked to 'done' were very limp. No crispness whatsoever. My fish was slightly overdone. My 4th guest ordered the grilled vegetable sandwich on grilled brioche. The brioche was so thick it looked that it would satisfy a giant. Too, the brioche was burned on most of its edges. The vegetables were barely cooked and barely edible. She was very disappointed with her meal.
On a good note, the prices were very reasonable.
Being a beef lover, I have always savored the various menu choices and Chef specials. The filet mignon is my preferred cut of meat but the N.Y. Sirloin will intrigue your taste buds as well. I also give kudos to the stuffed mushrooms, escargots and calamari. Make sure you save room for dessert and try the creme brûlée .
