Neighborhood bar. Regular crowd for lunch. Nice people usually sit at the bar. The guy to girl ratio is about 10 to 1 during the day....and 5 to 1 at night.
Most of the bartender's are attentive. Burger and salads are fine.
One of the best places for pool, etc – Pool, drinks, great menu, and friendly staff. Not to mention they have an awesome happy hour!
shooting some rounds – What a great place it was clean and the pool tables were in great shape. Our server was friendly and kept that pitcher of beer full. good show and also greaaaaat burger.
Saturday night plans RUINED for five people!!! – I had called a few hours before tonight to make sure they had the UFC 121 (Ultimate Fighting Championship). A female answered the phone and said they would show the UFC tonight. I arranged our group of five to make our way to the pub. It turns out the person on the phone misinformed us because they were not showing it and ruined our plans for Saturday. All FIVE of us had lost money in travel and time because of some ignorant air head decided to pick up the phone (albeit it's usually no answer) and say YES we will show the UFC. Word of advice to the owner, who hopefully relays this to their team: if a customer asks a simple question like if the UFC will be shown, (or ABC, or whatever), just say "I don't know" if you're an air head and DON'T LIE!
One Of My Favorites. – This is it!
I've been to them all, uptown, downtown, long islands south and North shores, but this is my favorite.
Food wise and service wise.
Great after work meet up – Fun place to meet friends after work. Pool tables, burgers etc. but in an upscale way.
great burger – the place has great food for a bar and the crowd is very nice and friendly the ownrts who are usually there great you with a smile and a handshake. would rate the burger as one of the best in ny. and the steak sandwich is awesome.
Fun Place – This place had great burgers and the staff was really friendly plus they have live music on certain nights. What more could you ask for? I am going to go back for happy hour and bring people from work with me next time.
great place – overall I had a very nice experience at blackstones. great atmosphere, very well prepared quality food (definately exceeded my expectations as far as bar food goes), all bartenders were lively and pleasant, theres pleanty of room, things to watch, and things to do (pool, darts....)...I would recommend checking it out if your in the area....
DO NOT GO HERE!!!! – I went to Blackstone?s last night after work with co-workers, to relax and have a good time. We had all been before, and it?s a great low-key after-work drink spot. I was ready for a nice night with friends, or so I thought? after one drink, my friends and I went outside for a moment, when one of the bouncers asked me, ?are you pregnant?? not only did he ask once, but twice. I have never been so offended in my life. Besides the fact that he?s a total idiot because what would I be doing drinking in bar if I really was pregnant? We left immediately and I will never go back. Do not waste your time or money on this place.
