Service was very speedy and pleasant. Patio was nice and offered both shade and sun options. Offered a few selections of beer. Would love to see more craft beer selections. A wheat beer would be nice too. Cauliflower bites were good. But the plate came...More

My wife and I were here yesterday for lunch with friends from Guelph, Ontario. We had heard good things about this place and were not disappointed at all!!. Good food selection plus customer service were very evident. Very much a pub setting here.

Seated right away and a server was at my table within 30 seconds. Ordered at 544pm. The atmosphere in the dining section is rather quiet as I believe I'm here before the dinner rush on a Wednesday. Buttermilk-Breaded Chicken, hand-cut smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce,...More

I recently went for lunch. The craft beer selection is better than similar chain restaurants, but the self pour station helps Fionn's to stand apart. The selection at the second floor beer station is enough to satisfy many craft beer drinkers with a good range...More

We had an early dinner here on a Sunday night. The place seemed busy so we thought that was a good sign...lots of families with young children, older couples, groups of students. The host was somewhat taciturn and our server, while attentive at the beginning,...More

5 of us ate here. Two ordered fish tacos. Both had sand (or something else like that) in them.... The other three meals were apparently ok. I suspect the lettuce of cilantro was not rinsed properly.
