nice place to sit down and eat

My husband and I stopped in for lunch our first day at Universal Studios. We got to the front door at 10:55am and a couple came out, so we walked in and said hello to the hostess. The hostess told us that the restaurant wasn't open until 11am and since she didn't say that we could sit down in... read more

The potato onion web is a must try! The salads were fresh and crisp, and potato leek soup was creamy and delicious. The complimentary bread is wonderful, but could be a meal spoiler if you eat to much!! We highly recommend and would return!!

Have to say this was by far the best restaurant we ate while vacationing at Universal Studios. We stopped at this restuarant for a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised The food was served quickly with nice size portions, steaming hot (it was a cold day) and delicious. Would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Univeral. Can't beat it.

First, the positive points about this "Irish pub": (1) the food is good. I've tried the fish & chips, the corned beef & cabbage, the Cornish pasties, the beef stew, & the bangers. You won't be disappointed, especially if you order the "Guiness beef stew"; (2) great bar & beer; (3) pleasant environment - in fact, the main dining room... More

We found the portions quite big so shared a few meals between four people. Enjoyed the fish and chips. Found this one of the more reasonably priced restaurants at Universal with a nice atmosphere.

Whilst the City Walk offers some really nice restaurants before you enter either of the Universal Theme Parks, I have found that inside, you are mostly faced with fast food type outlets of poor enough quality. However, Finnegans offers a pretty extensive menu with sandwiches etc that was a refreshing break from the norm. The staff were really pleasant. I... More

This was our second visit to Finnegan's as we had tried it a couple of years ago. The chicken club salad was not bad but not terrific either. The wings were far from "lightly dusted" and were definitely oven baked. Our server Marian was very friendly and prompt and both visits we've enjoyed the live music. Probably won't visit on... More

My daughter and I ate lunch at Finnegan's Bar and Grill which is a traditional Irish-American pub. It is one of the few sit down restaurants where we could get warm which was nice and the staff was friendly. The Irish soda bread was ok but the apple butter made it delicious. I enjoyed the Misty Isle Mixed Grill (sausage... More
