With apologies to all, I was not able to make the reservation at the last moment, but did stop by that afternoon for a drink at the bar. The building and restaurant have a fabulous vibe and the bartender was terrific. Definitely coming back to Blackthorn!

There was only one server and so many people, server did not come to ask how everything was and it took him forever to clear the empty dishes off of the table. My sister Shepherd’s Pie was Luke warm the potatoes on top did not have a crust like it just came out of the oven, it looked like it was done with a heat gun. My Mom’s chicken was undercooked it was till light pink we did not make her eat that part. We all wanted tea at the end of our meal and we waited and waited for the server as soon as he got there I just asked for my check and left. Will not be back!
