Nice Place to Have a Drink While Exploring Charlotte

We stopped in to have a drink and an appetizer while exploring the "Queen City". The atmosphere was friendly and prices were about right. They had a good beer selection and our spring rolls were great!

Great staff and nice selection of beers. Other than that it is greasy, done by everyone, fried pub grub. three stars instead of two for beer selection and workers. Terrible bourbon selection.

I actually give the place more than 5 stars. The atmosphere is great, we sat outside on the patio. The staff is absolutely the best! Everyone of them went out of their way for us. We felt like a celebrity. The food is beyond words-the best! The chef creates the menu and Wow, fantastic. I had grilled shrimp with grits... More

Staff friendly, crowded bar at happy hour with all of the bankers in the area stopping in for a drink, but if you can visit before 5PM, BEST fried chicken tacos I have ever eaten! Upstairs available for rentals for large parties, nice deal to feed numerous people on a budget.

My husband and I had dinner at the bar, service was quick and friendly. The bar was lively but not too loud for easy conversation. I had the fish and chips, fish was very flakey and batter was crispy!! My husband ordered the kicking creole fish and enjoyed it too! Very good dinner and we would eat here again!

A friend of mine and I decided to try Blackfinn for dinner and we were note disappointed. Cold beer, fine burgers, and great service from Holly. This would be a 5 star review but I have to dock one star because they had an awesome sounding baked brie appetizer that we ordered and unfortunately we were informed that they were... More

I came here and had dinner with my husband, and my brother and his girlfriend. Didn't like the $5 cover to eat in the restaurant, but it was a NCAA tournament night, so the cover makes sense. Food was good, I had the tuna poke, which was delicious and spicy, and the Finn fries, which were a little too salty... More

The placed looked more it would be known as a good watering hole than a restaurant but the food was very good. My group got the Stir Fry - tender chicken and fresh veggies, Chicken Parm sliders - got a thumbs up from the guest. Drinks were reasonable and a decent beer selection. Staff was friendly It was a bar... More

Blackfinn has a touch of everything for everyone! Both on the menu and in the vibe/seating areas. Blackfinn has an upstairs bar/restaurant area and a separate downstairs/dining room area. I prefer the upstairs bar area at night and the downstairs area for lunch. The menu items are diverse and I have tried a broad sampling of the menu and it... More
