Really Quite Good

The fish and chips were excellent and our server (Mark) even went to the extent of making us a lemon drink since they didn't have lemonade. There was a group while we were there so we were warned it may take a little longer to get our food than normal. Our meals actually came before the group which... read more

Stopped by Finn MacCool's in KW, for some Appetizers and a cool one on hot summer afternoon. Could have gone for the sunny patio, but opted for a cool table inside. Pleasant décor, great service, but even better food! Our threesome shared the Chicken Tiki (breaded curry!!) - a platter of Blarney Chips, and a pint from a long list... More

We went here for later evening drinks with friends. They have a decent selection of local and import beers. The food is standard pub type food. Everything that we ordered was decent and satisfying. The service we experienced both nights we were there this trip was excellent. The young lady who was serving us was fun and friendly. She had... More

We like British pubs so we thought we would try this one. The service was excellent. The food tasted good. All we had was two appetizers and three draft beers. The price was $52.00. Very expensive. One of the apps was chicken wings. Tasted fine but was suppose to be a pound. There was 8 wings smaller than my wife's... More

Good decor and beer selection. Very friendly staff, reasonably priced. Had the Shepard pie and it was excellent, I will agree with some of the other reviews that the portion size was a bit on the small side. Overall would not hesitate to come back.

Very small portions, a few of us had the curry, which was ok but tiny portions. We all left and went to Moose Winooski's for desert. No one even offered us refills on our drinks. Very disappointed, third time eating there and this will be my last. I gave them a try.

Portions so small. Left hungry. We were told that was their regular portion size. About ten fries in the side of fries. Heading home to eat now.

Just got home from my first visit at Fionn MacCool's. To my delight, this place reminded me of another great pub in Ottawa called D'Arcy McGees. Apparently these two pubs are owned by the same company. I was warmly welcomed by the hostess & seated in a small comfortable booth. My server Cassie was great. She was personable & attentive...

We went as a group of six for a birthday celebration on a Monday evening. Although we had made a reservation, which they had no record of we needn’t have bothered as there was plenty of empty tables. Our server quickly came and took and delivered our drinks order. We had the idea of ordering 8 different portions of shareable... More

This was a return visit to Fionn MacCools for a lunch, we had been there a couple of years ago for dinner. We went on a Tuesday. They used to offer apps half price on Tuesdays, it has changed to buy one, get one half off. We still were excited to have apps for lunch. We ordered Ale and Cheddar... More
