I like this place at Universal. The Scotch eggs are the best and the food is very generous in proportions.

Love the atmosphere, the food is great for park food and the staff are great. They have live entertainment every night for HHN, which is a real bonus imo.

We enjoyed eating and hanging out at Finnegan's before the Halloween Horror Nights. There was live music, and our service was great, with a very friendly server, Juan (who wore the name tag Savannah, just for fun). The atmosphere was vibrant and full of energy. Food was typical pub grub, unique for a theme park (shepherds pie, fish and chips,... More

For a quick and yummy meal, you need to visit Finnegan's while in USO. Doesn't hurt that you can hear the Blues Brothers across the street while enjoying your Sheperds pie

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. The restaurant was very crowded. We were told it would be a 30 minute wait. It was only about 15 minutes. The place was packed and loud, but it was a good atmosphere (not the usual amusement park, pizza by the slice, kids screaming atmophere). Tehye did not have fish... More

Beer and cider on tap… a fully stocked bar… pretty good food… all in an authentic bar setting. It's hard to believe Finnegan's is in the middle of the Universal Studios theme park. But it is, and we found it a welcome break from the hustle and bustle outside. The bar staff is friendly and attentive - you won't have... More

I just stopped in for a quick beer and a sandwich at the bar. The bartender was very welcoming and friendly. She noticed I had my phone plugged into a portable charging device and immediately offered to plug it into an outlet behind the bar for me. I had the Reuben sandwich, which is my all time favorite, and was... More

Top notch dining at any park. A sit down establishment in the park. We ate here 4 times during our visit to Universal. The onion webb and shrimp scargo are fantastic. The cod fish and chips are so very good you just want to eat them over and over. Everything we ate at each visit was cooked perfect and so... More

We always heard good reviews from people so after a break of 5 years eating here we tried it again. Wish we hadn't bothered. Lacklustre service and poor quality food that was greasy and cold. Will not rush back again.
