Easy to find.. right on Main St. Food is great and portions are generous. Atmosphere and service are very good. Remember... people in Maine eat supper earlier than other parts of the country.

My wife and i drove about 7.5 hours from VT and were tired after the long drive after we checked into our hotel not far away (will leave review for them after we leave town) Was pleasently surprised to find a relaxed atmosphere (early bird dinner time) with great music, friendly staff, and plenty of good beer to choose from....

It wasn't easy to find a place for dinner that was still open after 8 pm on a week night during our overnight stop in Ellsworth, so we felt lucky to find recommendations for Finn's Irish Pub on Trip Advisor. Except for a high level of noise that made it difficult to carry on a conversation, we were not at... More

We have always had great food and service there!! The mussels in white wine are amazing!! The Irish nachos are a great snack when just stopping in for a drink. All of the main courses are truly worth trying

This is the most happening place in town. Superb hambergers, have gluten free buns and beer (usually) and wonderful service by people who go the extra mile.

The restaurant is situated right in the main section of town across from the theater. There is parking on-street or in a large public lot behind all the businesses. There are two entrances to the restaurant--front and back--with the hostess check in station in the middle of the restaurant, which is not really very functional and is a bit confusing... More

Good thing they weren't Irishmen. I wouldn't have understood a word. Guinness on tap is always great. Enjoyed my haddock. The fried baby artichoke was yummy. Food was good, beer was great, the ambience was well..lets just say what would you expect for a down east Irish pub?

There are regular bits, like the artichoke appetizer I just love! Can't to visit this summer. There's a variety of dining areas and I love the back door to the parking lot

This is a great pub, I was in town for business and walked into Finn's on a Tuesday night. It was trivia night and I soon knew half the folks at the bar. It is a tight/intimate bar area that almost forces you to converse with your neighbors. Onto the food, I had the pork tenderloin and it was superb.... More
