Awesome saloon/bar decor and feel. Bartenders are the best - great service and they are happy you stopped in their bar. Great place for a pre-game drink or to watch your favorite team on one of the many televisions. Always a few drink specials, too. Say hey to Zeek.

We went here one night after work with a large crowd (25+?). It's a little above your basic bar/pub food, but it wasn't anything special. The service was a little slow, too. There are so many options in downtown Charlotte that I'll try others before I go back here for a meal. Now if I'm looking for some beers and... More

The BlackFinn restaurant is in a central location in downtown Charlotte. We visited on a business trip on a Tuesday night, and the place was hopping! The wait was 30 minutes, but fortunately we found a place in the bar with no wait at all. Sitting down, we were quickly served drinks and enjoyed the bar, which is typical in... More

The bbq nachos are the best nachos I've ever had. BlackFinn has a good selection of menu items which are more upscale than the typical bar cuisine. It is also a great location to watch the games. The Friday and Saturday night throwback music video dance parties are also a wonderful time.

We ate dinner and had drinks here over the weekend. It was very crowded and obviously a popular spot. We sat outside. The food was great and the service was good. It seemed a little overpriced but it was actually cheaper than the majority of restaurants we looked at. Would definitely recommend this place for dinner and/or drinks.

During a conference in Charlotte I ended up here on a Saturday night with a couple of friends. We decided to eat at the bar while we drank. Two of us ordered the meatloaf. We were told it was the manager's special recipe. So we were disappointed when they came back to say they were out of it. I ended... More

Menu had a wide range of choices for food and service was very friendly. However for the quality of food, the dishes were overpriced. I would go again for drinks and appetizers, but not for a meal. There too many other great restaurants in Charlotte to go to for a meal!

My companion's lime seared blackened salmon with asparagus and rice pilaf was one of the best tasting meals I've had in my 13 months here in Charlotte. My pasta was good - no complaints - but the salmon and rice had me dipping my fork into his plate the entire time. The carrot cake was unusual at first bite, then... More

Stopped in for a casual meeting with drinks and appetizers. Excellent service and good value for the food. I will go there again when I am downtown. Great atmosphere and we were well taken care of. The menu is huge and diverse. There is something for everyone. We had a Meditteranian platter, Flatbread pizza, Salmon Poke and Ahi Tuna. Everything... More
