    This visit was just average. Restaurant wasn’t overly busy either. Pork belly portions got much smaller. Drinks from the bar took quite awhile too. Grouper was definitely not fresh fresh. Filet was cooked perfect. Fries were cold. Wait staff was too busy handling a 6 top to deal with any other booths in the section. We hope this was a fluke…

    Waiter Joe was wonderful. Funny, polite, and respectful. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. It was worth the 2 hour drive. Definitely will be back. Definitely will request Joe again.

    We have been there before and have been very happy. Last night, we ordered the Grouper and found it to be flavorless. We ordered and paid for a side of Asparagus that never showed up, and we did not realize it until today. We ordered food to go for our son, and that took forever. It was a disappointment yesterday.

    You can always depend on Black & Blue to deliver a top shelf dining experience. From the service to the decor to the presentation of the meal, it was all exceptional. Now it was a graduation night for many and the restaurant was crowded, so it was noisier than usual. But the scallops for two and the red snapper all were well prepared and delicious. I have always had a great meal at B&B.

    Group of 6 out celebrating birthdays. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The food was fabulous but the service was poor. No one checked on drink refills or water. Soup was served without a spoon. Asked for a spoon and waited about ten minutes before a spoon was delivered to the table. One waitress did a quick follow up with us as she walked by - but didn’t connect with everyone to see if we needed anything. It also took a long time to get the check and pay. This was my first time at this restaurant. Both my kids and their fiancés dine here quite a bit and love it. They say that the service is typically much better. It’s quite noisy. One person in our party had a hard time following our conversation.

    So we celebrated our 33rd Wedding Anniversary last night with dinner at Black & Blue Steak & Crab in Albany. WOW! So amazing! Food was excellent, service was beyond GREAT, and they were very sweet to recognize our anniversary with a table marker, complimentary champagne toast, and two chocolate truffles on top of desert! Highly recommend!
