The Blackback has expanded where the food and waitstaff continue to offer consistent quality. The menu is always interesting but still retains its old favorites. The staff and management are cheerful, energetic and responsive.

Ashley Thanks for your feedback and review. Pricing is a tough one...we do our best to keep our beers reasonably priced, and the overhead in check. We'll keep trying. Cheers, Blackback Pub

We had a good lunch of sandwiches (bbq pork, turkey & salami, fresh tomato caprese, yum) and Mac n cheese. They have a great selection of craft beers on tap, particularly if you like IPAs. Service was friendly and efficient.
