Reading Trip advisor recommendations for Ellsworth dining options, we decided to try. We had no reservation, but we came in in an in-between hour (around 4) so I figured it was ok. We were lucky, they had a table for five but soon after, the place got full. The burgers were generous and tasty, two salmon dishes were very good,... More

We had real difficulty in finding somewhere to eat after coming out of Arcadia National Park, and travelling through Ellsworth found very little open other than the usual fast food chains. We actually stumbled across Finns by accident - from the Main Street it looks really small and not that impressive. We ended up taking a wrong turning and ended... More

Ellsworth is definitely short on good places to eat. In fact the only place we found worthwhile on our long weekend there was Finn's. The grilled chicken salad was very good altho' the some of the lettuce was a bit past prime. The grilled cheese sandwich, a family fav, was also good. Service was prompt, friendly and efficient. The entertainment... More

We hadn't been to Finn's for a while as it can be crowded on weekends, but if you eat there, you'll know why! The best clam chowder we've had anywhere around as well as a delicious potato leek soup. Fresh salad and huge haddock sandwich... just perfect. The live music was especially good, a pleasant surprise.

Every year we go to Finn's Irish Pub and we have never been disappointed. The food is awesome, the drinks are always perfect and the atmosphere is wonderful. Even though we are from out-of-state, we are always treated like we come every week. We give great reviews for Finn's!

We were in town for an event and didn't have a lot of time before it started, but we didn't want to settle for fast food either. So we popped in to Finn's. I had the Rosemary Pork Tenderloin. It was melt-in-your-mouth delicious! And the mashed potatoes were so good! Best part, aside from the really great food was that... More

Finn's appears to be the busiest place in town. We secured the last available table and enjoyed hearty meals of meat loaf and mash and fish cakes and mash. The bar had an excellent choice of ales and ciders. Live music, appearing most nights, added to the atmosphere. Prices are reasonable with many entrees costing $10 to $15 each. A... More

Stopped while traveling to Bar Harbour, first off, the bartender was awesome! Very informative of not only the great food but also local attractions and things to do. Highly recommend the Scotch Eggs and Shepard's pie. Saw the boiled dinner go by and must say it looked and smelled wonderful. If in Ellsworth STOP!

We had fish and chips and clam chowder and they were both amazing! The service was very good and they have a great drink selection. The restaurant is very cool inside, there is an old train car you can sit in and eat.

Great place and atmosphere. My wife and I both had the steak and mushroom pie with brown bread. Super meal. They also had entertainment. Great prices. Great selection of Irish Beer as well. Lots of parking behind the Pub. Well worth the visit.
