Steakhouse | Buffalo, Western New York

We love Black & Blue and eat there frequently. The oysters are great, New York strip is always tasty and cooked perfectly. Love the sides. Our server the other night was Zack and he was great! My only complaint about Black & Blue is the bread! First of all I am over pretzel bread and the other rolls were hard as a rock inside and out, warm right out of the oven, but hard as a rock. This has been an issue the last few times we've eat there, but I haven't felt the need to complain about it. Just serve fresh bread, please! More

Very nice brunch in the historic HJ Richardson “Hotel Henry.” Drenched in atmosphere and beautifully restored. Excellent service - met & exceeded all of our requests. Shout out to our server, Sarah! One request, please on a sultry August day, it would have been great to have chilled drinking water. We’re a big water family and the tepid tap water (twice, two different pitchers) was disappointing! Food was wonderful, cocktails interesting. Lovely to stroll around afterwards. More

We have gone a couple times. The menu is just enough - different...fancified bar food if you will. So far, we have enjoyed everything we have gotten except the mac n cheese. It's really not good at all - tastes like noodles with the powder from Kraft mac n cheese. Everything else though - the complete opposite. The roast beef on weck, burgers, sandwiches, poutine fries, fried pickles, Bavarian pretzels, pierogi dish, steak, wings - all really good! Family friendly for kids also. More

Dining at Mason's Grille 52 was such a pleasant experience with my boyfriend! The fish frys were delicious and so was the cake we got at the end. Besides the over half an hour wait we had between putting our order in and receiving the food(they were packed and it was a Friday night so we expected there to be some waiting), it was spectacular! This has been only my second time going but I will be going again in the future, all the staff is so friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is lovely. More
