“Still good ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Yes, it still looks like Holmes and Watson, but the menu is different. We were a party of ten so
we were agressivley chastised for not making a reservation. BUT is was early in the evening and
there was plenty of seating available . Menu in some areas tries too hard to be gastro pub.
Seems to be much better at the Irish comfort food. All in attendance were pleased with their food.
Waiter was attentive and pricing was medium.

“Great Irish Food in Troy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

I have heard many good things about Finnbar's since it opened and I like to go to historic places, as this venue dates back about 100 years. My companion and I both had the Irish Stew, which was a big bowl with lamb, carrots, potatoes, and cabbage. It was very good and I hope to go back soon and maybe try the beer battered fish. The wait staff was very efficient and stopped by several times to make sure we had everything we needed. I don't drink, but the beer selection looks very extensive and must be good, since the bar was full.

“Great Irish food and phenomenal beer selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

There is something for everyone at Finnbar. They are very accommodating to any allergy or food preference when preparing their food. Many Gluten free options on the menu for food and drink selections. They have so many micro brew beers on tap compared to any other neighborhood bar and grill. Finnbar is much more than a bar with its ornate features and fireplace in the dining room to make it an inviting space, along with their homemade menu options. When the weather is nice, it has a very quaint courtyard in the back. Definitely worth trying out!

“Wow Wow Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This place has a new owner, new face and a new menu. The menu is extremely tasty, and if you are a beer drinker, you will be in heaven. I think there are 39 on tap!!!
