Pub SOLD? Hope they remember what the old music acts have brought to the pub and bring back Irish Larry of The Def Leprechaun Band from Nashville, TN. This place is a classic and Irish Larry of The Def Leprechaun Band MAKES THIS PLACE SING!

We wished that we had went to this place earlier in our trip because the food here was so good and the Irish atmosphere was so enjoyable. Great place to have a beer too.

Finnegan's Wake is officially closed. The business has been sold and there has been no mention of what will replace them. I am sure there will be an announcement in the paper soon. Sad, but perhaps the next place will be just as fun.

A group (7) of us went into Finnegan's at about 9PM this last Monday. The waitress took our drink orders and came back to get food orders. There were two people at bar and maybe four others at a table or two, besides us. After ten minutes the waitress passed by and I got her attention, asked where are the... More

I try to frequent Finnegan's Wake as much as possible. Their shepherds pie, banger and mash, Irish nachas, corn beef and cabbage, Big Bill Kelly's Irish Reuben, Pigs in a Blanket, and Calcannonballs are really really good. I am sad that 6/19/2014, Last call will be at 11:40 p.m . The Pub owner Jean Star Dillon has sold the property... More

The ambience is nice and we were there on trivia night which was surprisingly hard but fun! The food was good and the corned beef was yummy... sweet potato fries!

Stopped for dinner and ordered the corned beef and cabbage. It was very good, almost like home. I'm not sure but with such large portions it seems seconds are included. The staff are friendly and efficient.
