We had steaks, fish etc. Wine was very good. Service was excellent. Prices were high, but that was expected. It was a special dinner out like fathers' day or mother's day dinner.

My Grown Son, Grandson (7) , a friend and myself were looking for a place to grab lunch after my Grandson's football game.

August Sunday lunch - with only two people working. Total. Very nice and friendly, but couldn't keep up. Very long wait to get our meals for four people. The food looked delicious, but none of the four orders tasted that great. And parts weren't fresh. So disappointing. Two weeks prior we had a very positive experience at a catered event... More

Driving through town and read the reviews. Stopped for lunch. Delicious farm to table food. Great radish salad using the whole radish, greens included with a horseradish dressing. The caprese ravioli and blueberry risotto were excellent. We ended the meal with French press coffee and pots du creme. We will be back.

The Black Sheep is a very creative and unexpected surprise in a land of Culver's and Taco Bells. The menu appears very inspired and interesting, the beer offerings great, but the wine list a bit lean. Our appetizers included a salmon salad with feta. The dressing was a little watery. The mussels were great. My entree was a chicken Fettuccini... More

We absolutely loved this restaurant. Best meal we have had in awhile. My salmon was perfect. The decor was nice and made us feel like we were in a north side Chicago hip restaurant. Our server was wonderful. The owner came to our table to thank us for coming in. What a delightful dining experience. I will definitely be back!

We went to brunch for Mother's day, which was basically a set menu (we thought it was going to be a buffet). It was FABULOUS. Choice of three appetizers to share, the entree, and then one dessert each. We ordered the drink special - Old Fashioned, which was really really good. Fresh ingredients, subtle. I would come back here anytime... More

A quaint fine dinning experience. The interior reminded us of the cute neighborhood restaurants we find in our home town of Chicago; we felt very much at home in this renovated brick wall, hardwood floor interior. We ordered salmon which was moist, tender and flavorful. Their chicken and beef selections were outstanding as well. The menu was pleasantly varied. Drinks... More

Chef Tyler - "I've called it The Black Sheep. We are different and our menu is different. We work with local farmers and producers to bring in local and fresh wine, meats, cheeses, and produce, whenever possible. We go to the farms to see how the animals are cared for and the land is protected. We purchase just enough to keep fresh products rather than fill freezers. We are passionate about food."
