We ate lunch here one day during our visit. It was OK. One negative is that there weren't really many healthy options. I get that I have to suck it up and eat fast food at theme parks. But I hoped that I would have a few options at a sit-down restaurant. Not so much. Now once I decided to... More

This restaurant had a great comfortable atmosphere, spacious and pleasant. Good food, that looks like real chefs prepared it. Good selections, great salads, everything was good. Way better than the fast food places and only a bit more money.

While visiting Universal Studios Theme park we stopped in to Finnegan's for a late lunch. The food was very good, and very authentic (according to my Irish born and raised wife), from the soda bread to the fish & chips, and to the Shepherd's Pie. The food was definitely much better than we expected and well worth the visit.

Finnegan's was a wonderful break from a very hot day at Universal Studios, while waiting for a chance to get into Diagon Alley. The air conditioning was just right, there was a great variety of good foods and beverages to suit any appetite, the service was friendly and efficient, and the prices were in line. Very nice.

My son and I stopped in for a quick bite during an off peak time when it was raining. My son had the chicken attenders and devoured them. I had the Irish Fish and Chips. The cod was great. Thick breading. Only got three of them, but they were big. The chips were terrible, though. They were cold. Service was... More

For a theme park the food in this restaurant is outstanding especially the steak. My husband has said the steak was probably the best he has eaten. He said it melted in his mouth and not an ounce of fat on it. I had the fish and chips and it was fantastic. The service was great but just a little... More

The food is outstanding. The staff was very nice and made sure we always had drinks, food took a little time to come out but no worries the taste was great and worth the wait, price was decent as well.
