Great service and the bowls were 4.99 ea for the soup. Needed to eat a light lunch today, No ph no on the receipt, only... read more

Season pass holders to Universal. When we're at Universal, this is one of our favorite sit down restaurants. The food is good. I usually get the shepherds pie. Daughter likes the cheeseburger. The shoestring fries are hot and crispy. Lentil soup was fairly bland and not hot. Full bar, and a great break from the crowds. You can do much... More

It's hard to find a great place you can hang out and enjoy a brew and great bite of food inside a theme park but I must say; we found one with Finnegan's!!! Every single plate of food we watched come out of this kitchen looked awesome!! We were not all that hungry so we'll be back for more but... More

We heart Irish pubs. This place was right up our alley: good atmosphere, smiling faces, Irish signs and decor - we knew what to expect. Our server was kind and attentive. The buck stops here. Why is it that servers no longer write down orders?? As we knew it would be, the order came out wrong. 3 out of 5... More

An oasis from long lines and crowds. Good service, delicious food, and nice atmosphere. Loved the Blacksmith: half Guiness, half Smithwicks. Corned beef and cabbage was delicious, not fatty and not wet and mushy like some restaurants. My husband enjoyed the cottage pie.

My wife wanted to go here as she felt like chicken pot pie. Well, theirs isn't that great. There isn't much "sauce" in the pie and it had an unusual, bitter type flavor. We did order an appetizer that consists of fries and onions mixed. It was very tasty but needs some sort of dipping sauce to make it truly... More

My husband got a gluten free burger with garlic mashed potatoes. Their fries weren't gluten free. They did have a few gf things to choose from, but no dressings for salads. I got a side salad, but didn't like it. I had little lettuce, beets, zucchini, and a couple shredded carrots. The waitress offered to take it off my bill... More

My husband and I dropped into the pub after a long day at Universal and Islands. We were pleasantly surprised of how great an atmosphere it was, and what a great menu they had. Although I question the authenticity of all that was served, it sure did taste good. Hubs ate the fish and chips and I had the bangers... More

I liked this place, we got in quick and it was nice to go to a sit-down restaurant. Food was Irish so not your average food, although you could get burgers and chicken fingers too. I got the Kilkenny pot pie, which had chicken, leeks, carrots and a few mushrooms with a pot pie top. It came with some root... More
