Good choice if you have a long wait for your flight

First of all a note to Trip Advisor. Fionn MacCool's has two locations in Toronto. One downtown (the 70 The Esplanade address) and another in Pearson Airport. People are reviewing both locations here. My review is of the airport location. This has become my go-to choice for a beer and some food if... read more

We stopped in when we were waiting for a flight and had a couple hours to spare. The line up for Timmy ' was long and although the food is cheaper, we opted for a spot where we could sit down and look out of a window. The food was superb and the service was great, with a friendly waiter.... More

Fionn MacCool's Pearson Airport. It is too bad I cannot do a price comparison between location for the franchise in Ontario Airport food in Toronto is typically very expensive but that is typical of all airport with the exception of Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The food at MacCool's was excellent. We were operating in a short time frame so I... More

I absolutely love the interior, their selection of beer and live entertainment. The food is typical Irish pub fare.

Excellent ambiance, great food, even a kids menu that was a hit which included a drink and dessert. Meals were yummy. We went in for a drink earlier in the day and our server gave us coupons to return-BONUS!!!

My husband and I stopped in at Fionn MacCool's at the Toronto airport for breakfast while we waited for our flight. I'd seen this pub many times while at this airport and looked forward to actually finally eating there. I ordered the smoked salmon bagel, orange juice, and coffee. The coffee was dreadful and bitter. The orange juice was tasty... More

The bouncer is an awful and ignorant person, after reading previous reviews I'm glad I'm not the only one who's had this experience. We were there with a large group and naturally were fairly loud, after 1 glass of wine she told me I will be cut off if I don't keep it down. The issue here was that we... More

On a Toronto layover, we stopped in for a shared breakfast. Food was very tasty. Service was good and accommodating as we'd wanted to share a platter and some places make such an issue of that. Waiter was great for that time of day!

We were between flights, and we waited to be seated for 10 minutes, although staff was swarming around us all the time on some mysterious errands, but studiously ignoring us. When we finally got a table, we ordered something simple off the menu because we had a connecting flight within an hour – plenty of time, you would think. But... More

Had a day of walking and on way to the St Lawrence market stop to check out the menu. Needed lunch so we went in. Excellent food and pleasant service. I had a breakfast poutine and my husband had the stacked Reuben. Price was not bad. Definitely gave us a large amount to eat.
