Honestly, very disappointing. Got the bone-in Ribeye. Charred on the outside and undercooked inside. Overly fatty and even grisly. Bacon was also mediocre. Not what we’ve come to expect from them.

The food does not disappoint, although I probably won’t order the Tomato/buffalo mozzarella salad again. The wedge is a much bette rejoice. The biggest disappointment was how slow our particular service was. Our server may have been brought out from inside but we barely saw him and everything was very delayed. 😢 We are thankful Blackstone has survived this pandemic and continues on. We will come again.

The wait staff and service was excellent. Very polite and attentive. We ordered the Porterhouse for 2 medium but it came out medium well, closer to well. Definitely overcooked, but it was flavorful and the meat was still very tender. So no need to return it or make a huge fuss. We dined outside, and it was pretty nice despite being on the Post Road. The staff made our anniversary enjoyable. Thank you for a fine meal and an enjoyable evening.

Immediately seated by the manager, who was wonderful. Our booth was perfect and it made us feel like we were in a special part of the restaurant. Our server was fabulous and offered great suggestions from the wine to our dinner. We had the clams casino and crab cake for appetizers. Crab cake was all crab, little breading! It was perfect. For dinner, we had the Tomahawk for two. Steak was cooked medium and it was delicious. We shared lava cake for dessert, great way to end the night. Our server was attentive throughout the night as well as other staff. I can't to go back again and bring my friends.

Thank you Blackstones for a wonderful date night!!

Tables right on top of each other - basically eating with the people next to you.

Slow service (not the waitresses fault, the whole place was slow) - 25 mins from ordering until drink arrived.

Cold and drafty - 3 different couples asked to change from the table next to us because of it.

Steak was good. The sides and apps were not good.

High end steak house prices with a Texas Roadhouse vibe.

Disappointing all around and not a place I’d ever visit again.

Food was bland, all items had no salt, including the butter for the bread. We had the Tomahawk Rib eye, it was cooked well, but had no flavor at all. Baked potato had been cooked much earlier, and did not even have potato flavor.

We celebrated our 10-year anniversary last Thursday night, and the entire staff was awesome!

The hostess gave us a great table and even provided us with the receipt and a bag for our leftover wine (without our asking). Another host was quick to point out the bathrooms’ locations and was eager to please my wife and me.

The servers did not rush us the least and were very good (ensuring food was warm when it should be, etc.). Highly suggest giving Blackstones a whirl!

We’ll certainly be back and back and back and...

Want to preface this that the two stars are only for this visit and the prime rib. This usually is a 4 or 5 star experience. Always loved the steaks and other options. Kept seeing the special Thursday Prime Rib night and always wanted to give it a try. Will return to Blackstones but stick to the steaks. The prime rib was a HUGE disappointment. The only thing I can say is it was big. That's where it ended. The meat was not tender and also had a grain of gristle in it. Probably both the largest prime rib I ever had but also one of the worst. That said, everything else was excellent and as I have said their steaks have always been fabulous. My wifes filet mignon was perfect. Try the Blackstones salad, really good and always go for the thick cut bacon. Service is great and nice atmosphere. Should have avoided the temptation to try the Thursday special, as it troubles me to write a negative review for what has always been a great experience.

This was a delicious meal and a perfect place to bring my husband for his birthday. It is pretty expensive but, worth doing for a special occasion if you are like us and can't afford to go there regularly. Monique was a great server and we had a very nice time.

Troubling. Blackstones is a quality steakhouse that consistently produces good food. The service is old school slow roll ... so if you are ready for a 2 to 3 hour commitment... you’ll be fine. What was most troubling about this visit was their inability to manage new guests while remaining attendant to those of us already there. As the restaurant got busier, service got WAY worse. We sat without drinks for long stretches. We sat with dirty dishes for long stretches. We had to fetch our own silverware in between courses. When entrees were wheeled over, one of them literally landed on the floor and had to be redone. And as the din in the restaurant reached uncomfortable levels, all we could do was push through and try to get out of there. It sucked.

As usual, the meat was excellent and prepared just as we liked it. The service was fine and the staff very pleasant. It drives me crazy to pay $8 for a side of mashed potatoes or any potato and $8 for spinach. In my town I prefer the signature salad at Josephs Steak House over Blackstone. We had Caesar salad this time and it was way overdressed

Our party of four had a great time having lunch in the bar room and watching play off football. We were fortunate to have the bartender serve us and she and her team did a great job of everything! The food quality is always great. This is a serious steak house. They did offer a nice reasonably price brunch menu for our Sunday visit but, we ordered from the full dinner menu to celebrate my son's birthday. A great fine dining restaurant with an excellent menu of steak and seafood.

I love Blackstone's! We had a nice table, the service was great, food was delicious and hot. One of the best lobster bisque soups I have ever had with actual pieces of lobster meat. food and drinks are pricey but this was a special occasion. They were kind enough to bring some dessert out to my son for his bday with a candle and they sang to him. Loved everything about it and would return again.

We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas dinner at Blackstones Southport! The food was truly outstanding- each oldish was expertly prepared and portions were ample. Our entrees included steak, chicken, and salmon and out sides broccoli, Brussels sprouts and spinach. We all were very happy with our meals and definitely plan to return. Apart from a minor issue with timing the service was wonderful.
