Yummy Irish Nachos!

The Irish Nachos with lightly fried potato slices and rasher bacon were unusual and very, very good. All the toppings were great. Service was quick and friendly. Price was reasonable. Guinness was great. Atmosphere was a relaxed Irish Pub.

Great fresh food offerings in a relaxed pub without pretense. Solid vegetarian options for lunch. Excellent cocktail and beer selection. Consistently friendly and professional service.

We stopped in Ellsworth, on our way to and out of Acadia, and found Finn's after looking downtown for a place to eat. The atmosphere is unique and pleasant, either for a drink or dinner. First time I went there, I had a burger. On the next day, I went back for another one. And I wish we stayed in... More

It was DIVINE! all the veggies I crave with the burger to satisfy my olofactory urges. The waitstaff came back to make doublely sure that's what I wanted and that is just what they... More

Our friends had gone there and wanted us to experience it as well. It was well worth the trip. I had the steak and mushroom pie and my wife had the fish and chip. I guess the only down side was that their service was a little slow, so have some patience because we agreed that this is a great... More

Do not pass by this small, but fabulous pub and Restaurant when you are in the downtown Ellsworth area. Great food, Daliy beer specials, and the atmosphere makes this worth the trip both for lunch or dinner.

We've probably eaten at Finn's close to 50 times and I've only been disappointed once. The atmosphere is great. The seating is not private but it works! The food is fantastic! The service is always very good. It's a great place for couples to eat and also for small groups. It's not really set up for larger groups but I'm... More

I first went to Maine in November of 2014. Finn's is one of the places I always go when I go to Ellsworth. For a world class appertiser order the Irish Nachos. As for location...the bar is an old railway carriage and is great. Finn's never fails to impress and the beer selection is excellent

My wife and I decided to stop over in Ellsworth on our way up to East Machias from Berwick. Our sin suggested Finn's Irish Pub for dinner and we were not disappointed one bit. The atmosphere had a cozy Irish setting, including entertainment from a young lad playing a fiddle. The food was delicious also. I had the Tenderloin Medalions... More
