I'm on the fence on this restaurant. I've been to another location at Vintage area as well. They are consistent. Food is good. It's very clean and has good seating areas. I guess I feel like I'm paying prices that should come with actual wait staff versus picking up my food and getting my own refills etc. Also I feel... More

Instead of being directed to a table where an attendant takes your order.....at the Black Walnut Cafe.....you proceed to place your order at the counter, grab your beverage, take a number, select a table of your choosing and your food order will be brought to your table. There is no waiting to be seated.....no waiting to be waited on! The... More

This casual dining cafe offers good food and good variety. You stand in line to order, search for your own table, and return to pick up your order. It is really loud and crowded, a reflection of its popularity. This is its second location that I know of, it outgrew the first one. Here the parking is much better. If... More

Enjoyed the delicious food and atmosphere of the cafe!!! It is a very relaxed cafe! You walk in and order at the counter. You then select your choice of seating i.e., outside, booths, tables, bar, comfy chairs, rooms with extra seating. They will notify when your food is ready. You can come here for a meal, drink, dessert or snack.... More

I came here after hearing from a friend of mine that lives in the Woodlands that this is the best place for Brunch. I first tried to visit on a Sunday around noon and the line was out the door -- A good sign, but with a 6 month old we had to find somewhere we could get in and... More

The menu has something on it for everyone. My suggestion is go online check out the menu and plan a visit. Pictured... More

Very attractive large fast casual restaurant with large bar. Wide selection of salads, soups, entrees and great looking desserts. It's a place where you place your order and when it's ready you pick it up and find a seat. All 3 of our lunch items were very good. As its not a full service restaurant i thought it was a... More

The Woodlands Black Walnut Cafe is a fabulous choice for lunch or dinner offering a broad variety of upscale dishes at very reasonable prices. Their Lobster Tacos are 'to die for' good... The salads are excellent, and all the remaining items on the menu are all very well presented and delicious.
