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.

2nd Booking...
coffee was served luke warm at best
medium cooked burger was way too rare.
had to ask frequently to bring several items that were on our order.
no comparison to our first dinner at BlackFinn.
we enjoy going there but it just didn't do it for us ...this time!!

A semi-regular option on our restaurant circuit. Food is okay- meatloaf was over-cooked. But there is a good variety. Wasn’t especially busy when we arrived, but attendance was picking up. People like the bar.

The server was great until she got slammed with tables. They seemed a little short staffed for a Saturday night. I had the chicken & avocado salad. Red peppers are not listed in the ingredients on the menu, so I had to eat around them due to a dietary restriction. It was my first so-so experience here. Normally this place is very good. Next time I'll stick to what I know, the balbo sandwich.

they need to hire a new head chef at the mt.prospect location.the breaded walleye and honey just tasted bad.The rice with red peppers tasted like something from the 80's.My wife had the macaroni and cheese dish it came to the table with no cheese sauce in it.And I think that is the way they serve it.The server was very prompt but didn't ask how are food was.what a disappointing meal.

Service was slow but it was Friday night after the movie theatre. Salads were good but pricy and no bread served with it. Will try it again.

Its a great place to stop in for a bite to eat. I've been there several times and have always enjoyed the food. There are TV's throughout the bar area, which is nice when there is a sporting event going on. Service is good and plenty of seating at the bar too.

Always wonderful. Good food and service!! I love the Buffalo Wedge with chicken. They can fry the chicken or grill it for a healthy option. The burgers are great too and love the battered fries!!

Reserved a table a day before for 6 for my sister's birthday. No table was set for 6 when we got there. But, not crowded at all. Food was fair. No special dessert presentation for a birthday. At least a candle in the top of the "Avalanche" that we ordered could have made it a little special. Service was lacking. Refill the water in the glasses would be nice.

Food was terrific as usual and our waiter, Jeremy, was very accommodating. After being seated, we were contacted by our friends saying they were delayed by the incoming storm. Jeremy completely understood and suggested appetizers and drink specials while we waited. We never felt rushed and were probably there for 2 hours. Our entrees ranged from a large salad, to shrimp & grits to bacon wrapped meatloaf so we covered the menu and all dishes were prepared perfectly. So glad Blackfinn is near and we can make reservations for a Friday evening.

Eating outside is great. The waitress seemed to be harder to find outside compared to our experience in the past sitting inside. She was very nice though, might be an opportunity to look at in the future.
