This is attached to the Ramada hotel where I was staying. Food was pretty good. I had the Michigan Chicken Cheery Salad and it was good. Service was a bit disappointing.

We ate here because I wanted a sandwich and fries, but we ended up with three great meals due to an impressive menu!

My daughter and I recently ate the Saginaw St. restaurant and was very upset with the service and spoiled food. We ordered the crab stuffed mushroons and from the minute they were set down on the table, they just plain stank. Our waitress never came back and I finally managed to get the managers attention in the kitchen. He did... More

The food was great, they have these deep fried loaded mash potato balls that were fantastic. The only thing that I didn't like was the fact that there seemed to be a whole different menu that was never offered to us. While waiting for our meal to arrive, the table across from us received there order, which include various items... More

Being a business traveller and having literally been around the world in the last 40 days I can say this about Finley's: it is great food! I had the rib-eye special (although tempted to go for the prime rib or the short ribs). It was cooked to perfection (medium-rare) and while I would have preferred rib-eye steak on the bone,... More

Went for lunch and had an excellent experience. LOVED the house-made chips. Thin, perfectly salted, and oh, so tasty! Would return just for those. Both sandwiches -- corned beef on pretzel roll and classic Reuben -- were outstanding. The onion soup also was tasty. Our waitress was very helpful -- attentive without being assertive. The negative reviews certainly didn't represent... More

I was in Lansing, MI recently for a meeting. This included a group dinner at Finley's on Saturday evening. After reading some reviews here, I was a bit leery. I'm very glad that I went to this dinner. First, let me say our group numbered 22 people. Our waitress, Kristin, was in complete control the entire meal; from drink orders... More
