Bethesda loves to think of itself as 'Town of Restaurants.' Same deal as Breezewood PA claiming 'Town of Motels'. Every single one (145 in 5 min walk!!) is crappy in its own way. Except this one. Blacks has sustained excellence for 20+ years with the...More

Black's is a great go-to place for friend gatherings, date night, out-of-town friends, raw bar and overall ambiance. It's pretty consistent and the service is good. The bar is lively and there is usually a nice crowd there. It's definitely on the higher price range...More

I love this place. They have great happy hour and bar menus. The drinks are fantastic especially the martinis. It is a seafood house but they have great meat for those land lovers. And the service is always attentive and friendly.

Each dish was very good. (Shrimp cocktail, oysters, rockfish). Management and wait staff seem to take a serious interest in getting it right. Kit Kat dessert was surprisingly a little disappointing (too hard and not Kit Kat like).
