Nice Lunch

Had lunch here after viewing the Blues Brother's performance across the street. Nice and cool on a hot day. Sat at bar and had a view of the whole restaurant.

Ate here as there didn't seem to be a large choice of places to eat and it looked alright from the outside. Upon entering and asking for a table for two the hostess answered with "hmmm... not sure if we'll have room" while tappijng away on her computer. Upon looking around the restaurant i would say maybe 1 in 4... More

We missed breakfast on both days so made for Finnegan's for an early lunch so had no problems getting seated at around 11.45/12.00 on both days. Seated and served quickly, food was much better than the usual burger/chicken and chips and great value for money. Drinks were cold and food was hot and plentiful, no one left wanting any more...

We always stop in at least once on our trips to Universal. The food is good and you get away from the crowds for a bit. The shepherds pie and the corned beef sandwich is good. We haven't been disappointed with anything we've ordered. Portions are good, I'm always very full after a meal here.

Buffalo wings and a beer at the bar was our lunch each time we visited. Just soak up the atmosphere and the friendly helpful staff will server you while you relax. Excellent venue.

Good food, pot pies, stews, fish and chips. So much better then the cafe fast food. Never had a problem with the wait. Staff were friendly. The bread and apple butter was a nice started they provide before each meal. I've read other reviews the portions are small, but they must have huge stomachs. I had no problems with portions....

Wonderful bar and a great break for parents who didn't need to go on the Mummy for the fourth time in a row. It's across the street! Traditional Irish pub. We only had their shakes and they were handmade with real ice cream! We sat at the bar and those eating said the food was very good. We just never... More

We live here in sunny FL., and make it a must to stop at Finnegan's for lunch or dinner at least twice a month during our "parks rotation". By far they are the best for being able to get away from the fast foods and pizza, when you want a little something different or more substantial. We've tried a lot... More

OK burgers, chicken and fries. Off of main street in Universal Studios, the best part of this place is the cool cars parked out front. Awesome classic cars.
