Visited Black Sea Grill on Friday, Oct. 6, 2017. Everything was excellent except the Mahi Mahi. The fish tasted very fishy, It tasted old. Took my 90 year old mom and she couldn;t eat it and mine tasted just as bad.

A small cozy restaurant. I love the kebabs and turkish patties but the lamb is hard to resist. Service is great and friendly. Ask the owner about his motorcycle
