very extensive menu of very good food and service. Also wide spectrum of beers...American, imports and a large selection of craft beers. Really a nice and crowded place of football weekends.

This place has a nice atmosphere. It is probably the best sit-down type resturant in the Campus Corner area of Oklahoma University. Decent Irish pub fare for the most part.

Upscale pricey college bar. The food was decent. The drinks are strong not weak. The waitress was decent and we enjoyed our time. We might return and try something else. Husbands pork chop was cooked uneven. My bangers and mash was just okay.

Fun upscale college bar atmosphere with perfectly prepared simple yet memorable dinner. The pulled pork is memorable as are the salads. Everything the 6 of us enjoyed was top notch and reasonably priced. Service was excellent too.

Great bar. Fun drinks--recommend the hummingbird. The appetizers were just ok. Brussels sprouts are not worth it nor is the smear. But the pork nachos were great. We went for a celebration as part of mom's weekend and it is definitely the right environment for that.

Stumbled on the Blackbird. Thank goodness we did. Great service, but not in-your-face. The server let us take our time choosing and when it came to pay, she allowed US to make the decision when WE wanted the bill. Food was great! I can recommend the Chicken pie! Good choice of draft beers (local brews were tasty and served at... More

The Macaroni and cheese was amazing. Get it, share it what ever but you must get it. I also had the pot roast sliders, really dam good. Had the 'Irish Flight', wow that was fun. A little pricey but its a good place.

Great pub with great food and drinks. We love this place and often stop when we're in town. Enjoy their brew pub beers and drinks that range from inexpensive to very nice and expensive. Have had many items on the menu and love them all.

I've been here many times, but the service is always weak. It feels like it is run by young inexperienced people. Btw, how can a full service restaurant not stock Johnny Walker Black? Unfortunate.

Their food is excellent if you enjoy traditional comfort. Because of the large bar and proximity to campus, it can get very noisy, especially in the evening. Very handy for a meal or drink after performances at the university.
