We stopped there right after coming off the Mummy as the restaurant is located right across the street from the ride. I opted to go with the traditional fish & chips and was not disappointed. They were very fresh and typical of what you would find in Ireland. The pints were a little pricy, but you are on Universal property.... More

Great Irish pub food, and ale selection, real surprise in the middle of Universal theme park! Fully air conditioned, great atmosphere and service and the food was amazing! We had usual pub food such as Fish & Chips, Chicken burger etc but what stood out were the soda bread served before the meal and the side of Finnegan’s Potato and... More

Great Irish food! My oldest son had the Kilkenney Pot Pie and my younger one had the Bangers and mashed which they loved! My wife and I had the wonderful Guinness Beef Stew. They had great frozen fruit drinks for the kids and even better for the adults! The atmosphere is fantastic.

We were relieved to get out of the hot weather for a while when we decided to eat at Finnegan's, so glad we did, the restaurant sits opposite the blues brothers set and is table service, air conditioned and comfortable. We all ordered the cod and chips, a little different to what you get from the chippy back home! But... More

We ate here on a weekday while visiting Universal Studios - Orlando. This restaurant is located in the actual theme park so you need admission. We had the Rueben sandwich and the Cornish pastrami sandwich. They were both really good and freshly made. But you must have the "onion webb" appetizer! (It is so much better then Outback's bloomin onion.)... More

Good hot food served promptly. Not a bad price and good quality, taxes added up and made it much more pricey

Well, from sit-down to receiving our drinks .. Was 25 minutes. When you are trying to get back outside and have some fun, this may not be the place for a quick meal. Luckily, we were sitting near the talented musician. The food actually arrived quicker than I expected and was split for us, cooked correctly! That's exciting when you... More

We really enjoyed our respite at Finnegan's during our tour of Universal Studios park. The potato and onion fried appetizer was fantastic. We all enjoyed our entrees. I had the seafood pie and it was delicious. My five year old grandson also enjoyed his food and had a great time. It was also great to enjoy a cold Smithwick's while... More

Food was pretty good, served hot. You get soda bread and apple butter to much on till the food arrives. Our party of 6 had fish and chips, shepherds pie, and corned beef and cabbage. Server Jeff was awesome! Very attentive and friendly. Prices are only a couple dollars more than at food stands and the air-conditioning, table service, and... More
