the food is so-so...the wait staff has been horrible the past two times i have been...the first time, the waitress never came around to the table and just hung out by the bar socializing. the second time i went was for halloween and the guy was RUDE, wrang the order up wrong, and overcharged. the beer is expensive. i would give it 2 out of 10 stars...i would not recommend this place. the food tastes like it came out of freezer and then fried or cooked. nothing original about this place or food.

I must agree with the previous poster. I live near Blackwell's and have been a couple of times since they opened. On my first visit, I ducked in with my boyfriend on a fairly busy weeknight for a quick bite to eat and a beer. The beer selection consists mostly of imports and high gravity fare, so don't go in with your heart set on the old domestic standby. I was warned by my boyfriend that the food was pretty standard and it was, in fact, unremarkable. Their schtick is a variety of burgers (one listed on the menu is a PBJ burger with blackberry jam), but I found my cheddar bacon burger comparable to any other bar burger.

On my second visit, I decided I would not be returning to Blackwell's. That was in mid-October, when our group of four decided to go in for a drink on a Saturday night. It was around 11:30 and the hours on the door stated they were open until 2:00 am (as does their website, I might add). Other than my table, there were about four or five other tables of folks in the place, including a larger group of about 6 or 8.

Our waitress came to take our drink order and brought our drinks a couple of minutes later. After about five minutes, the bartender came to our table and asked if the waitress had informed us that they had established last call for drinks. We told him she hadn't and asked what time they closed. He responded, "We usually stay open later, but we're not really busy tonight. So, it doesn't make sense for us to stay open if we're not making any money. Since she didn't tell you about last call, I'll make you another drink, if you want one."

I was upset for two reasons. First, we had specifically chosen a place that would be open long enough for our group to drink and socialize for a couple of hours. Had we known that we would be pushed out the door almost as soon as we sat down, we would have gone elsewhere. Second, although the bar was far from crowded, business is still business. As stated, we were prepared to stay and spend more money, as some of the other patrons may have been. But, this guy decided that our money wasn't good enough. A place that turns away paying customers obviously doesn't need my business!
