I have been going to Blackstone's and the predecessor for over 8 years. I took a date to there for dining and dancing on June 28th. Never, ever have I had such a bad experience-such a trail of tears. 10 minutes after seating before waiter appeared. Now, the dining room was not at capacity mind you. I ordered steak. Salads came but no steak 25 minutes later. Got up to catch wayward waiter's attention. Minute 55 passes. Enough. Went to Manager and he got right on it. Told him I wanted it medium rare. Came right back and said he "chewed some asses" and my food would be write out. 10 minutes later a medium to well steak was served.
Stayed for the good band; left with a terrible taste. You lost 2 loyal customers.

I'll try to sum up our experience quickly-

Wait staff was never around- every request (including getting silverware) took 15-20 minutes. While we were ordering the manager kept interrupting our waitress. My wife never got the salad dressing she ordered. She was given the wrong drink and it was not replaced. They brought my son the wrong meal and took a half hour to replace it. My wife actually had to find the waitress and remind her we were waiting. When the burger did arrive it was burnt and missing the fries (they charged us full price anyway).

We were there nearly 2 hours and 75% of that time was spent waiting. It doesn't sound as bad written down here, but trust me- the experience was awful. There were many other unhappy diners there that night too.

Sat in the bar for a couple of hours on a Friday night:
Women must be desparate here - never seen so much blatant push up bras on average girls, but the men were worse. If you have a toupee, you are too good for this place. Men don't even try here - bring your beer belly, your wrinkly bag o' bones and bald head - you are welcome here gents. Yikes. Shocking stuff. The wait staff was pushed to the limit - the food was so-so and God forbid they had music by the "Hit Machine" later. Yeah Baby! A boombox extravaganza to be sure . . . . left before that. Couldn't bear to see the not so lith ladies throw themselves on the wreckage of maleness that Vancouver has to offer in Fisher's Landing. Stay away, go somewhere else - try Portland for Godsake! They might have pink hair, but at least they can converse.

Pros: Food Okay

Cons: Suburby Sad - yucky crowd, not enough staff during happy hou

Wine prices fair on happy hour. Food only worth the happy hour price. Moved to Fisher's Landing so this is my nearest local bar & restaurant.....visited with my sister to see if it's worth going back....not! Mainly women until 5pm then the guys come in ....yuck!!! OMG and the younger women with them! Pleeze ladies why go after old bag of bones with no hair when there are guys with hair, decent bodies/physiques and money? Take the money and RUN!!!...afterall it is the oldest profession. Skip this sleazy bar and restaurant!!!! from an active, attractive middleage woman who knows the score...I was grossed out - skip this!

I love Blackstone! There are newer owners so if you went here when it first opened it is not the same management. We go to Blackstone a couple of times a month on Friday or Saturday night. They have great food and good prices. The entertainment on the weekends is pretty much the best you are going to find in Clark County in a nicer atmosphere. I love the Concrete Cowboys and they play here often, but all of the groups they put in here are great! There can be a lot of younger people here so if you are looking for a quiet evening lounge this is NOT where you want to go, but of course that depends on the band/group that is playing.

Since we discovered Blackstone Restaurant last May, we eat there at least once a week. Blackstones has great service, great food, nice people, and a great view of the Columbia River and Portland Airport area. Blackstones is a classy restaurant with great prices if you arrive before 5:30pm for the early dinner menu. A complete salmon dinner for under $13. The service is excellent and the staff friendly. Blackstones is highly recommended.

Cons: Would be nice to have more window seats
