BlackFinn American Saloon - Charlotte
EnjoyableWe ate in the dining room which was MUCH quieter than the bar area. Food was very good and reasonable for what you get. Service was outstanding.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTwo separate restaurants...I had dinner with three friends this week and left happy!
There's really two different restaurant environments...one is more the sports bar and the other a dining room.
I did not eat in the sports bar, but did walk through...and it was busy but not crazy crowded.
I just wanted a nice steak and that's exactly what I got. A perfectly prepared medium rare tenderloin.
Simple presentation, good portions and a delicious pinot noir by the glass.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was so much better thanIt was so much better than the first time I visited.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for a business lunchWe went for a business lunch and the atmosphere was wonderful. The waitress, I believe Amanda was her name, knew exactly to be around when needed without interrupting the meeting. She was excellent. Would definitely recommend for others looking for a place for lunch because the food was also delicious.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy family went for EasterMy family went for Easter lunch and overall was great, took a little longer than expected to get our food but once we received was very good!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDid not know what to expectDid not know what to expect with the word, "Saloon", in its name, but we were pleasantly surprised by the food. It is simple yet well-prepared. We tried the fish-n-chips and the shrimp-n-grits. Both were good. The shrimp dish comes with a couple of lightly-fried grits-cakes, similar to polenta, and the andouoie sausage and added blackened shrimp make for a nice contrast between mild and spicy. The fish-n-chips were a healthy portion of white flaky fish ( cod? halibut?) and fries, both crisp and not oily at all.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
