Excellent restaurant

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... read more

We ate at the bar area (booths and tables) as the dining room was booked for the Fleetwood Mac show but the food was great and never felt rushed

Has the "convenient" factor going for it if you are in town for a show at Time Warner Arena. Food was ok.....pub quality. I would not make a special trip to the Epicenter for Blackfinn's, but i'd go back for drinks and dinner before a show at Time Warner Arena.

I had a late dinner here with friends during a recent visit to the Epicenter. Food was excellent and the service was outstanding. I had the black fin sirloin salad and it was delicious!!! I highly recommend it.

We were visitors to Charlotte, so I have no idea if our experience was typical, but this place was playing music very loudly in the front (where the bar and bathrooms were). That particular Sat. night, it was very crowded in the bar area, adding to the noise. Luckily, we were led to the back room, where the noise was... More

We went there in the middle of the day on a Monday. The food was good and the service was excellent. The server even looked up my claim to be a discount card holder which earned me a free appetizer. Food was good and I'll be back this way again.

It's a nice place to go hang out at the Epicenter! The service was a little slow, but it was Valentine's night. Also you can eat appetizers and fill up, without having to order an entrée. The atmosphere is wonderful , good mixture of people all ages and colors !!

Seated in the bar area (our choice), but dining room looked very nice as well. Service as top notch, couldn't ask for better. Wide choices on menu including gluten free choices. ! had a burger and guest... More

I honestly have only had 1 pleasant server at this place. Most have a serious case of RBF. The food is above average but honestly, service is everything to me. A place can have great food but terrible service and I will be turned off. I have been here after work many times and I stopped going here after my... More
