BlackFinn American Grille-Mt Prospect
Great food!Food was awesome, but service was really slow. Also, be careful of wine menu! It is wrong. Said our wine was a New Zealand one and it turned out to be a CA wine! Food took forever to come out and manager never walks around to actually talk to people and ask how food is, he does look grumpy though.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTry it!Reasonable prices, loved my goat cheese/strawberry/pecan salad. Management was very accommodating and it was so nice to have a round table!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be backI do enjoy this relatively new spot, though it tends to be noisy. This last visit was dominated by a boisterous group of men. Aside from that, food and service were above average.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the fourth visitThis was the fourth visit and each time I like it more....6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMShrimp appetizer was delicious,Shrimp appetizer was delicious, and all of our entrees were also good.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale bar & grillThe ambiance and decor gave this place a feeling of being a few notches above your average American bar & grill. I was happy to see a good, long list of tap beers including some uncommon ones. The food that we had was decent , but I'm sure there's a gem in there. Waitstaff was very kind and attentive. Kids even get a scoop of ice cream!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMeverything was very good fromeverything was very good from the service to the food5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMt. Prospect gemAll six of us thought our food was outstanding. Our server, Robert, was excellent. He was quietly attentive without being intrusive. All servers should be as professional. We enjoyed all aspects of our first dining experience at BlackFinn.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBlack Finn is deliciousWe've eaten at Black Finn on several occasions, and the variety of menu items we've tried has all come out very good-- good taste and good quantity. On this particular evening, invited friends to join us, and all four enjoyed food, mostly from the day's specials. The wine lovers seemed satisfied with the variety available. Service was prompt and sufficiently attentive as needed.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMy mother and I had a veryMy mother and I had a very nice meal at brunch on Mothers Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food, fast service,Very good food, fast service, nice pour on drinks. First time in, Mgr. came over to see if everything was ok (nice touch). Directly across from the movies at Randhurst.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was impeccableThe service was impeccable both by the server and the manager who also checked to make sure everything was to our liking. This extra step makes this a restaurant we will return to. The food is great especially the ability to change side dishes that re offered at no extra charge. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyableI would definately go back. The food had great variety and everything was wonderful. The lighting and atmosphere was very relaxing. Prices were a ittle high but quality was worth it.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Time for AllWent with my father & his wife when nephew was in town visiting and we all had great dinners. Dad & wife tend to get pretty finnicky and they both found options that were good and satisying. Nephew and I enjoyed the tuna poke appetizer and our meals as well. Nice artwork on the walls with big screen TV's. Only complaint by nephew is that they weren't showing the Red Wings game on TV since he's a Detroit boy.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis spot seems like justThis spot seems like just what the neighborhood needed. The bar area was set up great for dining and those just looking to saddle up to the bar and watch the days sporting event(s). (We did not utilize the dining room, sorry no help for you on that one.)
The menu seems pretty extensive. I have to say the two items I ordered (Tuna Poke and Fish Tacos) would not rate higher than 3 out of 5. Though I did taste the Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf... YUM! Next time I'll go for the Cuban Sandwich and the Truffled Fries. Yes, even though I didn't 'love' my food, this place is worth a do over.
Be forewarned, the place really get hoppin' after 7, so if you are dead set on eating at a certain time, you may want to make resssies!!
Check it out!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Prime Rib Sandwich onThe Prime Rib Sandwich on toasted garlic bread was delicious. The baby back ribs were fall of the bone and very tasty. The spinach was very salty.
Give yourself a treat and have the sweet potato mash instead of the fries. My friend and I found the restaurant to be very accommodating allowing substitiutions for the standard fries. We will definitely be returning.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thoroughly enjoyed ourWe thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to return soon4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA fine addition to the area.This was our first visit and fortunately we had made an Open table reservation because Saturday night at 6:00 it was jammed. We were seated immediately in a very nice booth.
Menu is extensive and different (in a good way) from the usual fare in similar establishments. I had the shrimp and grit cakes and my wife a flat bread pizza. Both were delicious. Carrot cake desert was OK but molded and a little dense for my taste.
Prices were reasonable and we would definitely return.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoy the varied menu,We enjoy the varied menu, and the food is always Very good. I think you should consider serving bread at the table. I will be returning for dinner with several friends this week. .4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a nice casual dining experienceFor a nice casual dining experience, this is perfect!

Service was outstanding!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFun casual diningEven though it was a crowded Saturday night, we got right in. We even had the choice of eating in the saloon (which has sports being televised) or the dining room (which is a little more upscale). The server was attentive, the beer selection satisfying, and the food--especially the pork tacos was delicious. We parked in the parking garage which is less than half a block away. It is also right across the street from AMC Randhurst, so is was a perfect spot for a pre movie dinner.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe make this restaurant ourWe make this restaurant our choice once a week. The service and food are always consistent. Having music is a plus.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm addicted to the t-birdI'm addicted to the t-bird turkey burger! Gotta have it once a week! So good.

Excellent restaurant4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMake a resrvation for dinnerI had been to BlackFinn Before with a few friends and noticed that the place gets real busy for dinner, so this time around I decided to make reservations for my date and I. Let tell you, it was a great idea because when we walked in there Friday evening for dinner it was packed.
Side note; they have a great variety of beers.
Great food and the service was phenomenal.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI kept hearing great thingsI kept hearing great things about BlackFinn and now that I have gone twice, I agree with them. It has a decent selection of dishes and the prices are great for the quality of food. We prefer the dining room over the bar since the bar is generally noisier then we care for. Their cocktail, beer, and wine selection is pretty decent. Generally a cocktail is $9 or so but they use top shelf liquor which is great. Goof for couples and families.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest turkey burger EVER! VeryBest turkey burger EVER! Very attentive wait staff.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHad dinner with my husbandHad dinner with my husband and two friends. Food was great, service was good and being that we got to the restaurant early on a Saturday night (6 pm), it wasn't as noisy as usual. we could actually hear everyone talk!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to watch the BlackhawksWent to watch the Blackhawks game in the saloon area. Although they have plenty of T.V.s for viewing their policy is NO SOUND. So we listened to their tunes du jour before the game and left for one of the other venues nearby that accommodate their customers.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMsecond time , first time atesecond time , first time ate in the bar area, servce was great food was great evryone was satisfied with their dinner,this time we tried the dinning room ,service again was great,i was the only one disapointed with my selection, i order the corn beef,very poor amount of corn beef,mashed potatoes unacceptable with corn beef and very little cabbage,only because i was uhhappy with my selection, it will not dicourage me from comming back, i think youre restaurant is great, james lambrecht3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
