Suzie's is a great everyday neighborhood spot for dinner and a drink. I can always find a local craft beer and get a decent sandwich or a dinner salad. Chicken BALT is my new favorite while my wife enjoys have a Caesar salad with grilled salmon. Service is always decent but this time it was exceptional. If your are thinking of going out last minute - consider coming here.

We showed up at the restaurant on time but it was closed for dining, although the bar was open. They were not serving food. Had not received our reservation and were very sorry. Not a good night.

It was a date night and we thought to give Black Eye Susan a try. Though we made reservations, we were seated in a bar area with the bartender as our server. She was very nice and she hustled. It took a while before she was able to get our drink orders and apps. The oyster shooters were delicious and so were the oysters. We decided to order apps for our meal, and ordered the Rockfish bites; Maryland Crab Spring Rolls, Wings with Honey Old Bays sauce, and Rockfish tacos. It was delicious though the Rockfish bites could have been seasoned a bit. All in all, it was most enjoyable and delicious!

Ordered the chicken nachos and they were great as usual. Shrimp and grits were good, my wife got the salmon which she also said was good. We sat upstairs, this was the first time we did this and the tables are better arranged then the downstairs. Some of the downstairs seats are too close.
I would recommend this restaurant and we will be visiting again.

We had a family of 5. Two ordered salads which were good! Two ordered steaks medium rare and one burger done medium. All meat was cooked to death, no juice just a dry piece leather. I was so disappointed as I had been the. With friends before and had a wonderful experience.

First- and very importantly- the service was excellent. Our waitress/bartender in training was pleasant and gracious.

In terms of the food- it was fine. Nothing I would rush to have but at the same time, it's the kind of place where once you find a favorite on the menu, it is a quick and inexpensive stop for a date night or dinner out with friends. I wouldn't necessarily go back for a big "occasion " but for a Saturday night before the movies or the bar- it's perfect

The stuffed soft shell crab was very good as were the raw oysters.

The oyster Rockefeller was not good- unless you don't like the taste of actual oysters- there was a heavy sauce on them that was unnecessary.

Overall I am sure we will go back.

Crab cake was burned around edges. Asparagus was under cooked and cold. Steak was over cooked. Food took a while so we were too hungry to send it all back. Chair was uncomfortable after sitting there for two and a half hours. Server was good but kept having to apologize. Don't think we will go back.

My first visit here was nice, but only ate oysters. My second visit was Mothers Day Brunch, which was $25 per person for 8 people. Saw some friend in the parking lot. The said it was Okay, but the salmon and turkey were very good. Our reservations were made for 1:30 and brunch ended at 3pm.

We went for our first trip to the buffet and they were out of Salmon and Turkey. Go figure. There was also beef, but there were only overcooked scraps and they were out of it by 2pm. Also, no vegetables. I told my server we were a little disappointed. She did nothing to make good on this and did not get her manager.

So, basically paid $25 for breakfast, chicken fingers, ham, and mac n cheese. What a joke! Very disappointing Mother's Day.

It was overcrowded and they ran out of food at the buffet. Service was beyond horrible. All they had to do was serve drinks and we were almost done with our lunch before I complained and they brought water.
The waiter literally disappeared.

Not really great at all. Seating is much too close to the people next to you; room was too hot; steak salad was sad, small and overpriced; burger had a weird flavor combo that just did not work; we had to beg for water refills; and it was just so overpriced for such mediocre food that I felt ripped off in the end. Not even worth complaining about to a manager, mostly because I feel they would have thrown me a free meal and not really worked on fixing a problem in the kitchen which is bigger then an unsatisfied customer. I will spend ungodly amounts of money on great food without batting an eyelash, but will not be going back here. Save yourself a trip.

Monthly night out with the girls combined with a birthday celebration. Our server, Victoria, was exceptionally friendly and thoughtful. She was attentive and took the time to have the staff sign a Birthday card for me and gave me a dessert on the house as a gift. I chose the lemon bars to take home since my husband loves them. I must say they were excellent and I'm not a big fan of desserts. The girls and I shared the pulled chicken nachos which were pleasantly different and tasty. Fresh jalapeños instead of jarred, which was a great touch. Everyone loved their entrees which included a burger, the salmon, the beef filet special and grilled chicken & berry salad. All were very good. One friend commented about the risotto being better than most she has had in other higher end restaurants. We will definitely be back.

The service was superb. The short ribs and rockfish were great. The pork barbecue was dry and the shrimp in the shrimp and grits was bland and overcooked. I said I would not recommend because I don't think it's a good place if you want to celebrate a special occasion where you want to hear your friends and family. As a place to celebrate in a loud, boisterous place with atmosphere, this is your place.

The rock was great, could barely find the W/ Crab... the online menu was different than the one inside, so we had to change our choice. Options of baked, fried or broiled weren't given . The bill was given, before desert was offered...when we asked about desert the waitress didn't know if they had any or not...

We had a great experience here! First of all we had a party of 12 and 7 of those were kids. They all sat at a table next to us and our server, Lauren, took amazing care of them! She made sure they had what they needed which allowed us adults to have a relaxing dinner out as well! The food was really good. The beer choices were great and we will definitely be back.

Pluses: Our table was ready on time. We had a very good server. Everyone was beyond satisfied with their meal. Pricing is reasonable.
Negatives: It was more of a bar atmosphere than I expected. Music was great, but a bit too loud. Our table was in the path of too much traffic.

The service was excellent and we definitely benefited from reserving through your site. We were seated immediately even though it was packed. The service was excellent. The waitresses were very helpful with recommending food. The service prompt, accommodating & efficient. The prices were average and the food good. I was impressed by the Manager (at least I assumed that's who he was) walking around & speaking with customers to ask how everything was & actually conversing also. The music was great, not too loud, & good variety. Would definitely go back to eat or just drinks & atmosphere.

Ordered a bunch of apps and there was nothing noteworthy about any of them (we ordered the rockfish bites, the agave wings, the brussel sprouts and the blackened shrimp). In addition, we were sat next to the bar and an incredibly loud group made the experience that much more disappointing. Would maybe try again for actual dinner, but I have no plans to go back anytime soon. Service was good.
