The beer here is awesome and the food is better than average. But, the star here is the fried chicken. A chic but casual atmosphere and great presentation makes this a cool place to go, especially if you are staying downtown.

Was trying to go to black bird and their web site is down. Called and received voicemail they are closed for renovations with no date listed for a re open. Bummer

Interesting menu and beer selection. Nice ambiance not too noisy. We enjoyed our meals but there can be improvement-the salmon was dry, but the peaches were delicious, burger was over cooked. Chowder was too buttery. Cioppino was heavy on the tomato without appropriate seasoning. Oysters...More

Have a great beer selection but known for their seafood chowder. We also happen to find the veggie burger superior to the beef hamburger, even though the hamburger is quite decent. Odd circumstances last visit had the restaurant without the chowder that night and ran...More
