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...More

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 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.
