I'll have to admit that I was a Little reluctant to try Finn's. Most Irish Pubs in this part of the country can pour a good Guinness but often miss the boat when it comes to food. We had a gift certificate so my wife and I decided it was worth a try. The first thing I noticed was that... More

It looks like a simple tavern from the street but the menu reflects some serious thinking and very good cookery. There are two preparations of mussels on the menu: spicy-tomato or white-wine. Both were delicious, with a slight nod to the spicy version. Other entrees enjoyed at our table included Bangers and Mash, Fish Cakes, and some vegetarian dishes. All... More

If you love chowdah, try here. They add dill and it is wonderful! My wife and I often meet her for lunch and have never left dissatisfied. Food is wonderful, and even includes very tasty vegetarian options. The staff are friendly, attentive, and efficient. Soups are a real treat and change daily (although the clam chowder is always available).

Head over to Finn's for some fun and great food. We put up a dollar on the wall, a tradition at Finn's where you decorate the dollar bill and then tape it to the wall. It's a fun place with local eats and a friendly staff.

Live music and amazing Mac n' cheese. Dani is wonderful and always makes us feel welcome. The burgers are always cooked perfectly and melt in your mouth. I recommend Finns to anyone who is looking for good food and entertainment.

My boyfriend and I checked their menu on their Facebook page and it sounded amazing. I decided that's where I wanted to go for my birthday. My friend's band plays there on Thursdays so I have been before for drinks but I had never tried the food. I am so glad I chose Finn's! The food is rich and full... More

It was the day before Thanksgiving and a winter storm had begun. We were staying in a motel in Ellsworth in order to visit my mother in law at a nearby nursing home. We wanted something with a little atmosphere and tried Finns. YES! The place is cozy, the drinks well-formulated (I tried the Margarita) and the food surprisingly good.... More
