We love to travel to Maine in winter, and this year winter's a bit extended. Our Easter weekend here was full of snow, sun, and the very welcome and friendly atmosphere at Finn's in Ellsworth, ME. This is our second meal here and everything was delicious and belly-warming. Fish poppers, local oysters, fish cakes and a great burger. All washed... More

Staying in Ellsworth for the week 3-10 April 2015. Mental health getaway. Found Finn's while searching for Irish Pubs in Ellsworth, Maine. Finn's Is the only Irish Pub there. Took the chance and stopped for a late lunch on Saturday. Place was crowded. Our server, Megan, was the absolute best. Now, being an expert of sorts on Irish Pubs (being... More

The food is pretty good, gets better each time I try something. The service is good and the atmosphere is wicked cool. I even like the drinks.

Food is always good and plentiful. We especially enjoy their Reuben sandwich. Beer menu is interesting and seasonal beers are fun to try.

Trip Advisor reviews steered us here, and we actually couldnt get in the first night we visited because the lines were too long thanks to a special function. But next day we were seated right away, and all the good things we had read in raving reviews were true. The fish and chips, with fresh scrod and homemade chips, was... More

I love Finn's. The food is always delicious. Best Shepherd's pie ever! Good variety of brews on tap. Homemade desserts are unique and elegant. The atmosphere is awsome too!

For years I have been next door to this restaurant. Have never eaten there till last night. I was so totally blown away with what I found! Various places to eat like the bar area, high tables outside the bar and a dining room at the rear of the building. That's the beginning! Seated in dinning room, we were attended... More

I had no idea this place existed, just happened to find it when searching for some place new to eat at, in this area. I found this site, showing that Finns has awesome ratings/reviews, & decided to give it a shot. Was a little weary, since it is in a pub; and was also slightly confused by the "family restaurant"...

I visited Finn's Irish Pub since I was told they had the best Philly Sandwich in Maine. I'm not sure if that is true but I haven't had one this good in Maine! The Irish Coffee was the best! I couldn't eat the fries due to being fried with fish due to an allergy which was disappointing but the garlic... More
