This is our favorite place to eat. The restaurant is small, warm, and cozy. The martinis there are SO good. I tried the blood orange martini and the blueberry. If you go here you MUST try the irish nachos!

I had a steak & mushrooms pie which was good. I'm not a huge fan of irish food so that factors heavily into my rating.

I've been regularly going to Finn's for years and they have consistently good food & drinks, excellent prices, and a fabulous staff. The only downside is that you can have a bit of a wait for a table on busy nights, if you don't make a reservation.

My sister told me about Finns, and it wasn't disappointing at all. It is a pub with a small dining area. The lunch food was excellent - I had fish and chips. Will be going there again when I visit Ellsworth,Me.

Mainly Irish themed decor and food. Delicious food and friendly waitress. The atmosphere was similar to an Irish pub and the typical Irish dishes such as Bangers and Mash were available.

Great ambiance in a cute little place on a cute little Main Street. We arrived around 8:00 and were told they closed at 9:00. The hostess and manager weren't the politest in conveying that two large parties had just come in and they wouldn't be able to serve us. Fine, no problem, but at least act apologetic. Finally, they decided... More

We went with a group of friends recently. Finn's is busy and we were a large group, so we made a reservation. The Pub has a good beer selection and several Irish dishes on its menu - combined with a nice local atmosphere. Everything we ordered was good - Shepherd's Pie, Bangers & Mash, Steak & Mushroom Pie. While we... More
