The menu has a nice variety. Food came relatively quickly and was hot.

Food was fine, we were happy with our meals. We were seated quickly. Overall service was very slow and our server never came back to check on us after food was delivered. We also had to seek her out in order to get our check, after waiting with two antsy kids for 15 minutes or so after we finished our meals. My husband physically got up and was looking through the restaurant to find her for our check.

Typically bar food and atmosphere.. Some how our table got taken, so we ended up waiting a bit longer for table, and seating in the bar instead of the dining room, since we asked for first available at that point. They comp'd us an appetizer. Food was just okay.. Kitchen was very busy, so a bit slow... But typical American bar food, not a bad place, just not memorable.

Our server seemed inexperienced but he tried hard to please. Bar service to our table was very slow in filling drink orders. The entrees arrived before the appetizer so our server cancelled it from the bill. There was nothing special about the food and the portions were only average. Overall the experience was only fair which is sad because I would really like this restaurant to be better.

Pretty slow Sunday evening... and the service was very slow too. Waiter was friendly but served our drinks and then disappeared. We waited quite a while to place our dinner order. That said the food was good and we were promptly seated using our Open Table reservation.

Was a birthday celebration with 8 people. Waitress never said anything about it. I had the grilled fish taco, worse I have ever had. Was dry and cold, didn’t want to make a scene since it was our daughters birthday. Comments about the fries from others was they tasted like fry cakes you get at carnivals. Guess all in all was not a good night.

Stayed at Hampton Inn down the block so walked over. Food was awesome. Spring rolls were fresh and filling and the ahi entree was excellent. Pleasantly surprised.

I went New Year’s Eve around 8:30. The French Onion Soup was fabulous but the rest of the food (consensus of all in party) was average at best. The service was very slow and the restaurant was not very crowded. I wouldn’t go back.

I have been going to Blackfinn for 4 years when I moved to Mount Prospect. The food and atmosphere has been generally real good but this visit was terrible! Our waitress came to our table 4 times in 90 minutes. Totally unacceptable. Never asked how our food was. Water glasses remained empty until I had to get up and ask for a refill from the waitress. The food was horrible! The flatbread pizza was real dry, like it had been sitting in the heat lamps for hours. My chicken wrap sandwich came and it was slapped on a plate with dry steamed broccoli. No garnish. Not anything. It was cold, dry and had no flavor so I waited about 10 minutes for the busboy to stroll by and I finally asked him for some ranch dressing.
We had finally finished our meals and the waitress walked up, grabbed my empty plate, and walked away. That was it. I had to ask her for coffee and a dessert menu. Once I drank my coffee the cup stayed empty and cold for another 10 minutes. I had to request a refill.
This restaurant needs to take a serious look at their staff and chef. 2 stars out of five is generous. It's really gone downhill. Not so sure I would ever come back.

Excellent food and great prices. This is not a fancy place very casual but the menu has a lot to offer and at a great value, I can't wait to come back and try more items on that menu.

We booked a table for 4, including our 3 year old and 1 year old. Turns out there was a private party and the only tables available were high tops in the bar....couldn’t accommodate a high chair or booster seat. Not the most family friendly.
