Good place for a lunch sandwich. Mostly variations of chicken, but nevertheless good. Do one called the "flying pig". Bacon, chicken breast,back bacon in panoko crumbs, tomato and lettuce. Has BBQ sauce on the chicken but is overpowering. Better to leave it off or have it on the side. Tried the the pub pies but thought they were quite dry.

The first time I enjoyed lamb shank dinner was on a UK trip at an Irish pub. I was amazed. We tried Fionn MacCool's and I ordered the same. I was equally impressed and delighted. Welcoming atmosphere, professional service and amazing fare.

I ordered the half chicken. When it came to me it was burnt and very dry. It seemed to have a funny taste. I could count the fries, because I got about six to be exact. I questioned it and I was told that it comes with a half order. No where on the menu did it say half. My... More

Family get together for a celebration. Good service and reasonably priced drinks. Usually wary of these types of chain restaurants, but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food we received. Meals were fresh and tasty. Enjoyed they meal and the night out. Only issue is it seemed a little loud and was hard to talk sometimes.

I've been to this location several times, it's a great spot to come to enjoy a beer with some friends. Either after work or after hockey. The bar area can accommodate a larger group. The patio is nice for the summer months and they usually have live music.

Four of us met here for dinner last night. The waitress was friendly and did not rush us at all, so we had plenty of time to visit. Interestingly, we all ordered the Fish and Chips and were pleased. The French Onion Soup was very good. I great pub atmosphere, and the manager even stopped by to ask how the... More

Been going to Finn's for a couple months now with my buddy for lunch. Food is very good and good variety, but best of all good selection of micro drafts. Atmosphere is very good.

Bartender looked liked he just got out of bed. Guinness was good. You should take the wings off the menu. For what what you charge for the wings, they should be of better quality and size. I've been a regular at this chain, 1st time at this location. Your brand is no longer consistent thru-out Ontario.
