On Day Three of partying my tail off and the general overstimulation of a blogging conference, I was spent. I craved comfort food, soft seats, and though I didn’t realize it until I got there, I wanted a personal TV at my table. BlackFinn provided all of those things along with superb service and affordable menu items. For some reason I had envisioned BlackFinn as being lowbrow pub food served by greasy looking bar backs. Not so. The food was fresh and yummy, and was delivered by an adorable and sweet server who didn’t bat an eye at our "Team Obnoxious" antics. How good does Southern Nachos, which is pulled pork barbecue, queso and the rest of usual nacho topping suspects sound after days of little sleep, networking, and blog learning sound? Let me just tell you, it made my tummy and my taste buds happy. Other standouts included the Blackened Brie and the Mac and Cheese. If I had been more worried about consuming lighter fare at that moment, the Goat Cheese, Strawberry and Pecan Salad would have been a prime choice. But seriously, at place that boasts items like Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf, it makes more sense to go for the tastes you really desire, lean back in your booth, stuff your face and watch some TV.
This place is sweet and the pizza is one of the best in Charlotte in my opinion. The outdoor patio/bar is huge and the inside has a great decor including fireplaces, TV's everywhere and a great staff. 18" pizza with unlimited toppings? $12.99. My new go to place to order a pizza, drink a beer, or watch a game. The 2008 review is way off. Highly recommend.
Happened upon Ed's on the way to the South End for dinner. Lively place with good, attentive service and a nice atmostphere, even if it was a bit on the loud side. Had a mix of folks young and old and seemed like the kind of place you'd come back often to hang out with friends. I'll be back next time I'm in Charlotte.
I really like this place. I have never had a bad meal. I usually stick to their salad since there aren't enough good salad places around. I had a pork loin for a lunch special It was excellent.
Great atmosphere, they have a very extensive menu something for everyone. The food is great and the service is fast and friendly.
If you like beer, soccer and nothing else...this is the place for you.No kitchen.
Love the atmosphere and the food. Big portions too.
