Located at Universal Studios

Husband wanted a place to sit down without too many kids and get a beer while we took a break from Universal Studios. Finnegan's didn't disappoint. Irish Pub located in the NY section of the park. Great service. Step son got the shepherd pie (even with the crushed mushrooms he loved it and ate... read more

We were told that there was a 20 minute wait for a table and were given a buzzer to tell us when our table was ready. We waited 40 minutes before we decided that this was too long and asked one of the waiting staff - it turned out that our buzzer was broken and that they had tried to... More

After a fun morning of adventures in Diagon Alley and Universal studios, we stopped into Finnegan's located along the "Streets of New York." Cool air, a warm environment, friendly servers and something for everyone, even vegetarians, on the menu! Our group of 4 ordered, Grand Ole burger, Dublin chicken sandwich, Celtic Chicken club salads, and adult beverages. We were all... More

We were wilting from the heat at Universal Studios and needed to eat somewhere inside with air conditioning. We stumbled upon Finnegan's and said, why not? The food was surprisingly good and reasonably priced. Our waiter was beyond excellent. They bring you Irish Soda Bread with your drinks and it was really delicious!! Reasonable kids' meals. I had the fried... More

If it looks like, smells like, and tastes like, then it must be an Irish Pub. Being in the imaginary world of Universal Studios, it was a pleasant surprise to our senses for a food option. We had a difficult time choosing from the assorted menu items, they all sounded great from the descriptions. Each of the 6 of us... More

Large Irish style pub with the typical pub food you feel like. There are cheaper places to eat, but I like it here. Great place to stop and regroup before heading back out to the parks. I suggest asking for Jamie as your server. I mean, if you can't have an Irish maiden serving you, why a not a New... More

We loved Finnegan's. It is a pub style, sit down restaurant with plenty traditional Irish fare to choose from as well as non-Irish fare. The portions were generous, the prices were reasonable. We had Sheppard's pie, something like sheppard's pie but with fish/shrimp, a streak w/potatoes & a chicken sandwich with fries... all was wonderful! Topped off with a couple... More

I ordered the shephard's pie and it was so yummy! It was a very large portion as well. I couldn't finish it all. For it to be inside a theme park such as Universal, the prices were pretty decent. We have annual passes to UO, so I will be back to fuel up here.

We ate at this restaurant while we were in the park. We found the food to be very good and reasonable for being in a theme park. The lines and wait can get long as with anything in Universal.

Near the Mummy and and the Twister Ride. This place has a ton of draft beer selections and Irish whiskeys. We drank here every night of our stay at Universal. Try the beer sampler and if you really want a good drink ask for the Hawaiian punch!
