Four of us had a truly delicious meal of salad, Brussels sprouts, pasta (lobster and shrimp, ribeye meatballs) and wine. Joel was a wonderfully cheerful host. It was the perfect end to a quick getaway to Hermann. We highly recommend Black Walnut!

We had a great New Year’s Eve dinner. I had a great ribeye and my wife had a great bacon wrapped filet. We wouldn’t hesitate to eat here again on our next visit.
