The menu features salads, duck banh mi sandwiches, fried green tomato BLT, shrimp and grits, and much more. We ordered the pastrami reuben --rye toast that was light and flaky and sauerkraut that was not sour, just crunchy-- and beet salad, which was perfect ruby and gold beets with an exquisite citrus dressing and cheese on the side. We loved... More

I was excited about visiting this place, because of the strong reviews and what seemed to be an interesting menu. The idea of a good poutine also factored heavily in the decision. While "contemporary American" cuisine is certainly on the rise, and has been for some years, it must be fresh and interesting to be really great. I found neither... More

We had a great experience at the Black Sheep. All of the staff were very accommodating and attentive! The food was great, the drinks excellent and the atmosphere incredibly welcoming and relaxing. What more could you want at the end of a busy work trip?

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch here while staying in Jacksonville. They have a great menu. I enjoyed the Cuban Sandwich special of the day.

Check out the rooftop if it's nice out. Food is always extraordinary. Very different. Don't expect a run of the mill burger or traditional pulled pork. Everything in the menu is excellent but don't expect it to taste like anything you've had before. I love their burger. More like a super flavorful ground steak meal in a tasty bun. I... More

The Black Sheep is a nice, very clean upscale restaurant that serves delicious food. We went for brunch several times and were delighted how they accommodated the young children with us. Everything on the menu was great. Make sure you get reservations. It was packed on Sunday after church.

Nice casual menu at mid rate prices for lunch until 3:00, then it switches over to a higher end menu with table service after 5:00. Great food, great staff, and the rooftop bar is a nice place to eat or get cocktails on a beautiful day.

An excellent, imaginative menu at reasonable prices, drawing on local providers and innovative dishes. Great bar too, especially at happy hour.

I tried planning a great Saturday date for my husband and myself. We planned a late lunch at this restaurant, and then on to a Gymnastics Competition. Midday, I get an email from Open Table asking why I missed my reservation. Keep in mind, I had a 2:30 PM reservation, and an email confirming this. I called the restaurant and... More
