Good Food, nice atmosphere

Eating in the pub, rather than upstairs was a nice experience. The food was good, I started out with the Ying-Yang Shrimp ($12.99) which was tasty with plenty of shrimp. As a main course I had the Ginger Tune, "ahi tuna steak seared rare, served with stir fry vegetables, lemon ginger sticky rice... read more

The family met in town on Saturday for a Sunday football game and went to dinner Saturday night (to visit, catch up on family and to enjoy a great meal). The wait staff took care of our table without interfering or interrupting any conversations. Truly amazing and much appreciated. The restaurant decor was warm and the food delicious.

We went for dinner after the Belk Bowl and ate at the bar due to the overflow crowd. Our bartender was very attentive and gracious. Despite the crowd, things were calm & under control which speaks highly of the staff. Our dishes were very good. The only drawback were some inebriated guys at the end of the bar who were... More

I've been to BlackFinn several times and never been disappointed. Only compliant I've ever had is they won't cook burgers well done. You can ask but good luck getting one! They have a great selection of beers! I'd highly recommend it!

Our server was wonderful and the place had a nice atmosphere. The menu indicated their specialties and I tried one- the Balboa. It was very good and I thought the prices were reasonable given it was in downtown Charlotte. I would go back again.

The sign actually says Blackfinns American Steakhouse and Saloon. I mention that because we were looking for steak. So... When I say inexpensive for Uptown, I mean that two Ribeyes and two mixed drinks were $79 so it's not exactly cheap. The steaks I would give 3.5 or 4 stars out of 5. There were good and pretty tender. They... More

This is a nice sports bar with booths that have their own TV's along with many numerous wall mounted TV's. There are 2 bars . One upstairs and one downstairs. There are many additional tables and booths in both areas. The food in this sports bar is well above average. Very nice atmosphere. This is in the Epic Center. Priced... More

We dined at the BlackFinn on a Sunday night at 9:30 and our server and food were both excellent. Something for everyone on the menu including steaks, seafood, wraps, fish tacos and pasta dishes.

We arrived on Friday evening and sat upstairs. We had been waiting about 30-45 min after ordering before our waitress came out to inform us that our ticket for our food order had been lost and our food had been sitting out the whole time. Since they had to remake the food, we waited another 25 minutes before we could... More
