Fish Cakes and Money!

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

There are 3 restaurants that my wife and I frequent when in Ellsworth, We have known the manager for may years, Beth, who used to manage another one of the 3. As the majority stated the food is simply marvelous darling and the service is first rate. We always enjoy Audrey when she waits on us. You will see her... 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

When I have visitors from away and they want to have lunch, I almost always recommend Finn's. Fantastic hamburgers. I haven't been able to try anything else on the menu yet because I just keep going back for them!

I love the pub steak, but I have yet to be disappointed with any of the other meals. The chips are great as well. I also love the atmosphere and the live music, so overall, I rate Finn's as the best in Ellsworth for a burger or a steak and a beer.

First of all, make a reservation. It can be busy. It is, however, worth it. Live music, good food, friendly service, all present and accounted for. Get the steak and mushroom pie.

We've been visiting Finns each time we visit Ellsworth, ever since it originally opened. I never tire of their draft beer selection and their comfort food is to die for. Husband always has the Ellsworth Grinder, and I have a difficult time deciding between eating a meal or just skipping right to the Bar Harbor Wedding Cake. The bar staff... More
