We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Blackhawk, did not enjoy our evening meal at the Bix Bistro. We had to wait unusually long after our order was placed. When the food finally arrived the entree was cold, not hot as it should have been. When we mentioned this to our waitress, she did not apologize, but indicated it was... More

Located in the historic Blackhawk Hotel, the Sunday brunch at the Bix Bistro is wonderful. Full array of hot meats and egg dishes. Bottomless Mimosa's and yummy pastries make for a great brunch Excellent service. Well worth a visit.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. We had the steak and ahi tuna and both were excellent. The shrimp and grits appetizer was exceptional. Friendly and attentive service. Also seemed to be reasonably priced considering the quality of the restaurant. We highly recommend it.

I ate twice at Bix on my visit to the Blackhawk, both times I had very friendly quick service. Food was basic American, but fresh and well presented. Price seemed right and I felt that I had good value. There were several good restaurants near the Blackhawk, so I only ate there on 2 occasions

Love Bix Bistro. I have never had a bad meal there, the best burger and the Blackhawk Salad is absolutely fantastic. Great atmosphere and great staff. My next objective is to try the Sunday Brunch.
