    Server had no idea about the menu and never brought our appetizer until after the meal arrived. Had a guest in from Europe and I was embarrassed. Food was way overpriced and the waitress came out after serving the incomplete meal saying that the last two potatoes were not servable and offered no substitute. Very disappointed after spending a lot of money on what should have been a great dinner.

    Black Prong never disappoints! The service is amazing; everyone is so nice and never leave you waiting for anything! Last night, we had the red snapper on jambalaya and cheese grits, the shrimp and grits, and the crème brûlée cheesecake. OMG, Yum! We will continue to visit often as it’s one of our favorite places to eat!

    Maybe not our night, we all have them. Our first time there and over all service took awhile but once it started our server did a great job. Our food…. Protein was warm but asparagus, carrot and rice was slightly cold. Food presentation beautiful. We will go back and try it again. Hopefully next it will be hot.

    Our server was fantastic. The food-- not so much. The filet was chewy and we felt the food was a little underwhelming overall due to the amount we spent on the evening. We will give it another try because the event was not the normal menu. But I would recommend that you shop around for a better cut of meat.

    We were seated right up front in front of the band & couldn’t even hear each other & when asked about moving, all other reservations had seats taken even though there were 5 tables between us? No bread served with the appetizers? So they gave us an extra box of dried out cookies? Never Again, sux

    Calamari & Crab cakes were excellent. The Red fish entree was very bland. It was average. No bread with your dinner - had to purchase it even though our entrees were $37 each. Beautiful facility.

    Had a 7:30 reservation. Hostess was very kind… let us know we picked a good night and seated us immediately. There was an event going on. A two person piano band playing requests. Took 15 min to be greeted by a server. She did not offer us appetizer we had to ask for it. She seemed overwhelmed. There were about five empty tables when we were seated. We did not receive our appetizer till 8:15. We ordered a bread board…. A baguette sliced up into six pieces and served with butter, oil and Parmesan chucks you could dip the bread in. The food followed around 8:40. The server had to be reminded that I wanted a coke. I also had to go to the bar to get my own refill. The food was of excellent quality that equalled the value. The tall table chairs were a bit uncomfortable. The ambiance was a five out of five stars. Except for the service an overall good experience.

    We always love our meal at Black Prong. This evenings meal was not exception aside from the very slow service. Our waitress was definitely trying however service was slow, drinks were slow to get refilled, had to ask when we would see dinner even though the restaurant was not busy. Again we are fans, tonight they just weren’t on their game.

    I have been looking forward to dining here. First, I will say that I love the ambience and will go back, though I was somewhat disappointed in the food. My cocktail was very alcoholic tasting and nothing like the flowery description on the cocktail menu. My salad had beautiful fresh greens but no dressing. I had to use the oil that came for the bread; it was too difficult to get the waiter’s attention. I ordered the wagu, medium rare. One half was medium and the other half was rare. The char and salt on the wagu was good but the meat was tough and chewy, so much so that I questioned if it was really wagu. The accompanying asparagus had a nice flavor but the carrot had an after taste of old refrigerator, like it had been peeled and left uncovered in the frig for enough days to absorb the odor. My father had Mahi mahi that was dry. He ended up pouring the oil from bread over it. My children had the tacos and steak, which they enjoyed. The chocolate mousse with cookie was excellent. It was a moderately busy not but not slammed and service was slow. I will return and try other dishes. Just FYI for parents, there isn’t a kids menu.

    We drove an hour to give this place a try and it was well worth it. Beautiful grounds and a wonderful dining area. Excellent cocktails with our appetizers followed by perfectly prepared entrees (tenderloin filet & sea bass). Try the raspberry cheesecake for dessert. Executive chef Ray Einhorn even stopped by our table to make sure everything was perfect.

    So excited to have such an upscale restaurant in the area!! Made a Monday night reservation for hubby and myself for 5:00 pm to experience the Chef’s choice off-menu offerings. And the $6 martinis! No disappointment at all! We were only the second car in the beautiful parking area and first patrons of the evening. Hostess was very pleasant and offered a high top. It turned out to be the best spot in the restaurant for cozy and conversation. We felt secluded. Staff had not yet printed the Chef’s Choice menu but they got right on it. My martini and hubby’s club soda came shortly and as requested! He prefers no ice! Spinach tossed with sliced strawberries and goat cheese with balsamic vinaigrette was outstanding. Main course was beer batter fried redfish (a large portion), buttered marble rye bread slices, perfect baked beans and a serving of grits. They all paired well together and probably some of the best baked beans I’ve ever been served! Dessert was a cupcake with frosting. To be honest I couldn’t eat but a bite or two of it but hubby didn’t mind finishing it! The 3 course dinner was $44 each and considering the atmosphere, service and quality of the meal I will definitely go back!! Hope it stays this good forever!!

    Our first time at Black Prong and when we walked through the door we were both in awe. What a beautiful place! The decor and lighting was just wonderful. Our server, Trent was friendly, welcoming, very knowledgeable about the menu and always there when we needed him. The appetizer and meals all came out to us very quickly, was absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back soon!
