Excellent bar staff was kind a little slow on food coming out

Nice and cold place to take a rest!!! Ac is pumping in this place. Food was good, better than most areas in the park. Lots of hearty food. Kids menu well priced! The alcohol is cheap. Great place to take a mid day stop and great bar food for dinner!

This is our "go to" restaurant in Universal Studios. The service is great, the food great and reasonably priced, and every time we have been there entertainment was provided. (This time it was a solo singer.) My daughter had the Irish Cobb Salad which was huge and only $11.99, while I had the New Castle Chicken ($10.99) which comes with... More

We went for lunch here during a visit to Universal Studios hoping that it would be a welcome change from the usual lunch options of burgers etc but we were a bit disappointed. I ordered the Guinness stew which was really tasty but the portion was very small and had the tiniest dollop of mash on the top - not... More

Second time around HAD to visit this place, as we have had a good experience 2years ago. And we were not let down again. The food is nice, live music, right across the ride (Mummy). Waiters are always nice and polite - you feel welcome. I can only recommend this place.

We didn't have a reservation for dinner during our Universal vacation. Found this pub across from the Mummy ride. Good live music. We had the grilled chicken salad, grilled chicken sandwich and burgers. All were very good. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate to eat there again.

Pretty much a standard Irish pub within the park gates. Menu has all the usual options one would expect. I had the fish & chips, and it was at least as good as it's been at other similarly-themed places outside the park without too much of an up-charge. Service was good, and we didn't have to wait more than 15... More

My fiancée's steak was raw and then when he got it back it was hard to chew. My son got chicken tenders that were inedible. I got the beef stew that had some grizzle pieces that were inedible and there were maybe two carrots in it. The dessert was disgusting! My fiancée and I each picked the Raspberry cheesecake that...

We visited here tonight for dinner and had a great time. There was a live singer who was amazing and the food it's self was lovely. The atmosphere in the place was great and we will definitely be back here for food and drink before the end of our holidays

Our first visit to Finnegan’s will not be our last. The restaurant itself offers an awesome, comfortable atmosphere that was perfect for us as a couple, but would also be more than suitable for families. There was an excellent live performer (guitarist/singer) stationed by the bar that provided a lovely backdrop to our meal. We enjoyed some of the best... More

We were delighted with their menu which was wide and varied. My husband had scotch eggs and I had a bean burger. Everything was tasty and fresh. We felt this menu was designed with good healthy options which used to be hard to find in the theme parks. The atmosphere in the restaurant is lovely and staff are great.
