For a beginner I would suggest you look for a multi-deck game where the cards are in a shoe versus a constant shuffle machine. I would also look for a table where there are only 1-2 players or even a table with a dealer and NO players. Tell the dealer you are a beginning player and even ask the dealer for their opinion as to how to play a hand if you are unsure. Most dealers are willing to help out and most of them know the correct basic strategy play. Be sure to tip them every now and then for their help.

Passive harry is correct, it is better to play with games dealt from a shoe and not from a continuous shuffling machine. But another VERY IMPORTANT rule is to make sure that the payoff for a blackjack is 3-to-2. Many casinos are changing the payoff for a blackjack to 6-to-5, although at first glace this seems better because the numbers are higher but it is not. Changing the payoff to 6-to-5 increases the house edge by about 700%. For some great information you should check out the American Casino Guide, it has great stories about what games to play and which to avoid in casinos and it also includes strategy cards for almost every black jack game that shows how to play every single hand in any situation.
Or if you don't want to buy the book right now, check out the Youtube channel for them, they have a bunch of great videos and actually have one about blackjack, which you can see HERE.References
