About
Finn McCool's Irish Sports Pub , located in Schaumburg & Crystal Lake in Illinois. Bringing a taste of Chicago's pub scene to the Suburbs, with a decor of rich, dark woods, stained glass, a large fireplace and a collection of Celtic artifacts peppered with music and sports collectibles to create a fun and colorful montage throughout the pub. "Finn McCool's captures the spirit of Irish warmth and hospitality, with a dash of downtown energy," said Mark Hoffmann, who along with Fred Hoffmann owns and operates Finn McCool's as well as dozens of other bars and restaurants in Chicagoland. "It's great to bring a classic Chicago pub to the suburbs". The name Finn McCool's comes from ancient Irish legends. Finn McCool (or Finn Mac Cumhail) was the greatest of the mythological Celtic heroes and leader of the Finians, the elite warrior band that guarded the high king of Ireland . Finn McCool's goes beyond typical pub food with more than 50 distinctive dishes on the menu, plus daily food specials. Finn McCool's is open serving both lunch and dinner. Tons of large extra-bright flat screen TVs provide full coverage of the day's sporting events. Tabletop speakers are available that can be tuned to each individual table's game of choice to hear the play-by-play. Patrons can also play sports and trivia video games on the NTN satellite network using cordless "playmaker" units to compete with players in bars across North America ... And Much Much More!

A nice Irish pub
Jun 2018 • Couples
We came to Finn McCool's for a meal. We seated ourselves immediately and the restaurant was not overly busy. Our server, Noelle, was also the bartender. Normally, I hate when that happens, because it usually means that the service won't be attentive. I must admit that Noelle was definitely attentive and efficient and very personable. Drinks were good and I ordered the $5 special cheeseburger which tasted great & done to medium rare as expected. There are TVs set to a wide variety of sports channels, as well as some other channels. They also have a number of activities at Finn McCool's which makes for some fun entertainment.

Food was ok but the service was poor
Jun 2017 • Family
I was staying at a hotel in the area and decided to eat somewhere other than the hotel. I was considering this restaurant and the one next door to it, but the other was quite busy, so I decided to eat at Finn McCool’s. The parking lot was near empty as was the restaurant, but it took a few minutes before I was seated. Once seated, it took a while for the server to stop by the table. She came back to get the order. I didn’t see her again until after the food came. She never came back to refill drinks or check to see if I needed anything. Also, it took a long time for the food to brought to the table which didn’t make sense since the place was so slow. Overall, I feel that the food was over-priced, was of average quality and taste, and the service was poor. I do not recommend this restaurant and will not eat here in the future.

NY Strip deal is quite nice !!!
Mar 2018 • Family
Came in here for an early Happy Hour dinner. Got the NY Strip steak special that came with mashed potatoes and gravy. Yummy....Then got a cheese burger/ fries and pretzel to go for the room. Was very pleased with the quality of food and the price. Happy Hour has many drink and beer deals. Will definitely come here again next year when we are here for the convention.

A fun place to grab a beer and wings
Mar 2018 • Solo
This place has a long history and is always consistent. The bartenders are good and the wings are good. The menu is like any other sports bar.

They take good care of you and the prices are reasonable. I try to go in a few times a year.

Very average restaurant
Mar 2017 • Family
5 of us ate lunch here on a Sunday. Service was terrible. There were almost no customers at that time on a weekend and we waited an extremely long time for our beverages and then for someone to come and take our order. Food was average at best - I ordered the "breakfast all day" which was bacon, eggs and hash browns and ate less than half of it. Eggs were fine, nothing special, and bacon was inconsistently cooked - extremely done parts combined with fatty underdone parts. I didn't eat any of it. Maybe this is a great place for drinks and watching a sporting event, but not so great for a weekend lunch!

We came here after dinner just for drinks and enjoyed it! The ambiance is great and quite large. The drink menu offers a large assortment and affordable pricing. We did not eat but the food menu looked good. Would like to come back!

Great happy hour
Nov 2016 • Family
Great Happy hour specials. Fish and chips are decent and they actually have malt vinegar! Fries are yummy. A decent pour of Guinness, comes in 12 oz. And 20 oz. Very comfortable place.

Old time looking Irish bar with good food
Feb 2016
Stopped in for lunch and had a great burger and fries. Very nice Irish, sports-themed bar that I would definitely try again. Prices were very reasonable and good was excellent.

You don't have to be Irish to sit a spell.
Jun 2015 • Solo
My Brother, Sister & I visited this restaurant not knowing what to expect from the fare there. I can say for all of us that we had excellent food and drink. Each of us having ordered different meals and drinks all were too busy eating and drinking to talk about the matters that we were meeting for. We all quickly agreed that we needed to visit again to enjoy Finn McCool's hospitality.
