Black River Tavern
First time there service and food was excellent! Will definitely be back!
We've eaten at Black River Tavern about six times over a two-year period. Each time the food was particularly good. It seems their biggest issue is consistent service. Our server was incredibly good once he was assigned to wait our table. We were seated, a party of five, at five mins to six. It wasn't until 6:20, and after I and to find a manager, did any one approach our table. No water, no drink orders, nothing for 20 minutes. To credit the staff, they all did an exceptional job to make the evening enjoyable. The food and drinks arrived in timely fashion. The manager personally came over to apologue when our drink order arrived. She returned at the end of the evening to check on us. She then helped to clear the table. This has not been our first experience with subpar service, pun intended. On our last visit, the kitchen was out of the dinner special and somehow never told the server. The kitchen then put the entire order on hold waiting for us to order a different entrée. Once again, our server never approached us to make a new selection. We waited for again about 40 minutes before someone realized that our food never arrived. Then we've had other times where the service and food were fantastic.
A nice hidden spot in my hometown. Parking lot needs to be resurfaced. Food was very good, with generous portions. I wanted to try their signature bourbon drink, but they were out of bourbon (bummer). With tip, I spent $120 for 3 people, which was reasonable.
Met with friends
Food was excellent.Service friendly and quick; I will be goign back!
Nice golf course restaurant on the edge of Elyria. Cocktails were very good. Food was just okay. Lobster bisque had the cream curdled so there was fat separating from the soup not the silky smooth texture you expect from a bisque. Braised short rib was obviously not braised that day and you could tell you were eating something left over. The sandwich my wife got was much better but it was so overloaded with rosemary it tasted medicinal. Best thing we had was the pub chips and the fig salad. The fig salad itself could have been a home run with execution. It had lovely dried figs, good prosciutto, candied pecans, and tasty dressing but then someone had the horrible idea of adding cheese and not some nicely hand shaved Parmesan but some straight out of the bag pre-shredded covered in starch dust flavorless hard cheese. It was a travesty as it ruined the dish. To be honest with a little more detailed execution and knowledgeable preparation I would pay quite a bit more for the dishes they were trying to pull off. It either seems like they are not busy enough or don't care enough to do it right.
Very nice place to go for a relaxing dinner. Food is a little above average but so are the prices.
My husband and I played around of golf and had a early dinner afterwards ,it was are 37 anniversary, and thoroughly enjoyed the day ,highly recommend and will definitely be going back

The Black River Tavern is a gem! The food was delicious and our server was awesome!
We are outside. Great views, great service. Very good about social distancing and nice spread out tables. Very fast service.
The food was very tasty. Server was attentive and personable. Nice views of the grounds from the patio.
Good food, good service!! We will be back.
Our meals were a 50/50- there were 4 of us & 2 had good meals, 2 did not.
The cheese steak calzone was very good as well as the club sandwich but the perch was way over salted and the mac & cheese with chicken strips was not tasty & chicken overdone.
Love to come to this place, have always gotten good meals but hope they correct the issues they are having.
Great food! Super friendly staff and awesome experience on the patio! We will be back!
Good food and attentive service

Food and service was great. We will def be back soon
Excellent service, nice setting, reasonable prices. The entire staff were polite and friendly. The food presentation was nice and the meals were well-prepared. Nice lunch, for sure!
The restaurant is beautiful, food and service is always fantastic. This is my favorite place to dine.
The whole experience was great from beginning to end. Cocktails were great and the food was even better! I got the steak and frites, the truffle fries are not to be missed especially with the dipping sauce the come with and the steak was a great cut and cooked to a perfect medium rare with one of the top compound butters I’ve had. My husband has the short ribs that were incredibly tender and lasted all of 5 minutes on his plate. We started with the margerita pizza that was very good as well with an amazing pesto on top. Our server was very attentive and incredibly personable. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Will definitely be returning!
Joshua provided great service, welcome back!
Steak wasn’t cooked correctly! Up charge for some ranch that was homemade and wasn’t very good . 3 dollar up charge for some coleslaw that was terrible . Just wasn’t good at all . Server was good most I can say
Love this place! Great food and good service. Can’t wait to go again.
Food was good. Chicken was way overcooked dry and burnt. Short ribs were good. Girlfriend never complains. Told the server after the meal she stated she asked if everything was ok which she did. Added chicken onto a salad. Was clear it wasn’t eaten. Could have taken the cost of the chicken off the bill even though we did not ask her to.
Outstanding food and outstanding Service! Charming and picturesque location with ambience with lots of architectural character! Quality food at a great value! Tremendous thought and insight has gone into the menu, the food and architectural details that are quality and unique! Many choices for both omnivores and vegetarians! Everyone makes you feel welcome and everyone is friendly!
It was our first time there and we really enjoyed it can’t wait to come back and try some of the other delicious food.
Where we were seated was very cold. We asked to be moved; the owner moved us herself. My food was room temperature; the owner had the cook make me another plate. Owner was very nice. We will go back again and I recommend it.
Went for Valentines Day dinner with my wife. Food was absolutely outstanding. Appetizer, salad, meal and desert, all spot on. Service was great. We sat at the bar and the bartender Kayla was very attentive and informative about the menu. Great experience, we will definitely be back.
We have been to the resteraunt numerous times and have enjoyed so much we returned. Tonight was a let down for sure. We were sat in the area where the closed in outdoor area is and it was very cold. Most people sitting there had to keep their jackets on while eating. We asked to sit in a booth as we had sat numerous times but were told they were reserved. Strange since we had reservations through open table. Feels like our reservation through open table did not hold any weight or was appreciated. Lastly the burgers we normally love were under seasoned and the buns were very dry and crumbled over my entire dinner parties laps. Seemed like the excuse for the night on the poor service was do to the comedy show happening that night? Hoping i don't have to delete this resteraunt as one of my favorites.
Menu had lots of great options. Fish was cooked perfectly and the other items were equally delicious. Will definitely be going back.
It was a Friday night. We were seated in the golf video practice area. Thwack thwack thwack accompanied our meal. Some soft. Most loud. One fella thought he was in Scotland and hit the ball so hard against the unprevailing winds that my son said he totally missed.
The food was awful. I had a cheddar melt. The hams and cheese presented only salt as a flavor. My son had the Mama’s Delight pizza. He took most home. It was lacking as well. Our waiter would come and go...mostly go. I guess when in the golf section, you get horrid food and lousy service punctuated by staccato.
I have been twice before. The fried perch was overcooked. But my friend’s pork chop (side of pig) was amazing and she enjoyed the cauliflower mashed potatoes as well. I was hoping to try it. I returned with friends for lunch and enjoyed my meal.
I will wait until summer and hope for a terrace seat. Skip the Cheesy Melt. Don’t get stuck with the golfers.
The problem I had with the service was we waited at reception desk far too long for anyone to even acknowledge us. The waitress was good but time it took for food to arrive was long. I just think they were under staffed. It wasn’t even that busy.
Our waiter was Joshua.....what a pleasant and knowledgeable person !! He made our experience much more interesting and fun.
We would surely request him for a 12 person dinner we are planning for December 18th.
The food was very good to outstanding. There are several things on the menu that we look forward to trying in the future.
Great food, great place to watch the game
Great food and great prices!
Went on Monday steak night special. Great value. Pleasant and efficient staff.
