A crisp Thursday evening, one of the first in October, set over town on the night of the Alton Brown show, Beyond the Eats, that my husband had ordered tickets for me for my birthday when the visit to Green Bay was first announced. We had to be at the Weidner Center at UW-GB in a few hours, but we wanted to go out for dinner. It looked like other people attending the show had the same idea. There was one restaurant close to campus that looked promising-- Black Sheep.
And yet we as customers didn’t feel it. The hostess may as well have been on wheels as she went from table to table, covering for her busy waitresses that had no free moments to breathe. Food arrived to each table surrounding us in a timely manner, and the bar staff got drinks out to the tables as fast as the bar guests. Black Sheep was ready for that Thursday evening, and I applaud them for it.
Black Sheep Pub and Grill has quickly risen in the ranks of restaurants that we will bring any and all visitors to when they come to see us in Green Bay. I welcome the opportunity to see if the dinner crowd is always as large as it was that night that Alton Brown was at the Weidner Center, and I applaud the staff that night for keeping up and keeping their customers happy.
You can take a look at their menu on their website or follow their social media on instagram and facebook to watch for specials. They still have their summer drink menu at the tables, but that will likely transition soon as it has started to with most of our city restaurants now that the colder weather is beginning to finally settle in on the bay.
Black Sheep also has what appears to be a large wedding reception venue behind their quaint little pub if you’re planning to marry in town-- I have no doubt that their catering would be absolutely stellar. I can’t stress enough how impressed I am with the level of service at the level of crowd in the building the night my husband and I ate there. They killed it. I don’t doubt they can do that in any other circumstance.
