  • "The food was so good and the service was friendly and fast. I really recommend going to BlackFinn!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Our server, Stanley, was so nice and friendly, quick and helpful. The Saloon burger, Queen City Chicken, pretzels, and Caribbean mojito were all tasty. I wish we hadn't been seated in the bar with TVs though. Somewhat defeated the point of a reservation."

  • "This restaurant had really good food. I like to eat healthier so the chicken stirfry was a perfect option. It was a girls night out and we had a really energetic waiter. He didn't really come very often but he was assigned so many tables I can't imagine how he could even see us more than once. He laughed at all out little antics like how my friend is super picky . He was super patient with us and kept a smile even though he was clearly busy. This testaurant has a great atmosphere and I felt super comfortable. I'm a big fan and I'll be back for sure. The prices for the food were pretty good too and I couldn't help sneaking a bite of my friends' French fries. I'll be back soon for sure for my next girls night out."

  • "This was our first time at Black Finn & we'll definitely be back. From the moment we walked in until the moment we paid our bill, the staff was unbelievably friendly. The food was outstanding including my gluten free dinner. The menu selections include something for everyone. All of the items are marked as either vegetarian, gluten free, gluten free available or a Black Finn specialty. Our waiter, Jeremy, was friendly and more than willing to answer any questions we had. We will definitely be back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends."

The service was timely, friendly, and effective. Prices seemed reasonable; $89.26 before tip for 3 adults, 1 teen, and 2 kids (no appetizer, alcohol, or dessert). Will definitely come back!"

  • "Everything was good, liked the restaurant ambience but we were in the quiet side. Definately noticed the noise level was higher elsewhere in the place. Food was good although it took a while. Was told they were busy in the kitchen? It's valentines day...no kidding, what else should the kitchen have expected. Poor excuse but once it arrived it was good. Overall it great but good."

  • "Husband and I enjoyed a few apps and cocktails for his birthday. We had dinner reservations but arrived a little late and were short on time so felt we wouldn't have time for traditional dinner experience. We had two generous portions of appetizers and two cocktails each and left satisfied and arrived on time to our next adventure. Thanks"

  • "The food was great. But because of location I wasn't dress for the occasion. I felt over dress and later we found out they had a more private type dinning room that my wife and I would have been more fitted to dine in. They should make you aware of your dinning options before seating you."

  • "We made reservation for the main dining room, but it was closed when we got there, so we sat in the saloon. The noise level in the saloon was too high. We weren't able to eat and have a conversation because we couldn't hear each other because the music was so high at 6:00 in the evening. So we left early instead of staying for a drink after dinner."

  • "Our group of three dined there the day after Christmas. Overall atmosphere was very nice, and accommodations were very good. The mounted ducks had Santa hats on, and the pictures on the wall were wrapped like presents, a nifty little touch. Our waiter Jeremy was very attentive, and informative, and overall very helpful. Dishes that were ordered were of an appropriate size, not overwhelming, and not too petite. Price point was mid range and appropriate for the dishes served. We enjoyed our evening very much."

  • "I ordered a filet and asked for it 'medium' (pink inside), broccoli and asparagus. My date had the lemon chicken, glazed carrots and broccoli. Her dinner was delicious. My filet came out absolutely raw so I sent it back. It came out the second time and was still way too rare so it went back again. each time there was more broccoli and asparagus added but that was also cold. By the time I got my filet and it was cooked correctly, my date had finished her meal so I was now eating by myself as she watched. Our waitress, Alex, was great. She was very apologetic and accommodating for whatever we needed. In the end, I did receive the filet for no charge but it was not a good dining experience overall."

  • "This was our first time trying BlackFinn and boy have we been missing out. This is a great spot with some excellent food and drink. The restaurant provides one experience followed up by a great bar to hang out and watch some games or socialize. We will definately be back sometime soon. The steaks were outstanding!!!! If you decide to indulge, chose the goat cheese grits! Wow!"

  • "The parking lot was full, had to walk a long distance to find a parking space. Had a 7 pm reservation and was not seated until 7:45. Requested a table in the dining room and not the bar (because the bar area is very noisy). We were seated at a temporary table that was set up in the bar. A couple that came in after us was seated right after us in a large booth in the dining room. They did not have reservations. Our party could have been seated in that booth but we were stuck in the bar. Overall it was a terrible experience."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "My boyfriend and I choose to come back here because the first time we came we fell in love with the Chipotle Queso Dip. The first time we sat in the bar area. Each booth has its own mini TV to watch your favorite ESPN game, that is a plus! This was our second time dining here and we sat outside on the patio area. We didn't really notice that our food was taking long, but the Waitress and Managers sure did. They came over to our table several times to apologized, and asked if we needed anything. When the check came my boyfriend noticed that they took off for Kitchen Error and Drinks on our bill. We were like wow. This is the first restaurant who really cares about their customers. We are definitely coming back here again!"
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Having eaten here numerous times, we (wife and I) decided this past Sunday would be our last. We were seated on the patio and had to practically yell at each other because of the loud bar noise. Not very conducive to a Sunday brunch. Our food didn't arrive until 40 minutes after we ordered it. It took so long the manager actually comped the entire meal for 3 (me, wife & son) because the kitchen took so long. The food itself definitely was not up to par. It tasted old and had very little flavor. What used to be a nice place for lunch is now little more than a sports bar that serves inferior food - and not very quickly at that."

  • "When we finally got our food and beverages the meals were well prepped with good flavor but the service was lacking. Ten minutes to get drinks and 25 minutes for the food. It was very loud inside as well."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "As expected, dining experience was awesome. With reservations my party experienced minimal wait time and once seated our hostess was very attentive to the needs of everyone in the party. Drinks were in hand just a short while after being seated and salad and entrees followed in a timely manner."

We really enjoyed the food and the taste of it. It was all seasoned to perfection in my opinion. The servers were excellent and on point. The atmosphere was nice and relaxing . I will be going back and most all to me the prices were reasonable and the portions of food were more than enough. Thanks black finn"
