Decent pub-like ambience, and the restaurant was full of diners (usually a good indication of a favorable place). We went across the street for a quick drink prior to being notified our table was ready, due to the wait. We were served rather quickly after letting the server know we were going to the theater after dinner. My husband's meal... More

We love this restaurant! Great food, atmosphere and service! We always have a fun time there and are always satisfied! I love their Scottish egg and their New England boiled dinner is wonderful and we always go back for more!

The food is phenomenal! Very glad we decided to eat here instead of over-priced Bar Harbor!! For the appetizer we had the cold fish plate- it was really good! The brown bread is incredibly good with smoked fish. I had the fish cakes- I HIGHLY recommend them! My husband had salt and pepper haddock- very tasty! My son had the... More

My husband and son came to Maine on vacation in May and had an enjoyable time. They went at dinner and were seated with very little wait. The waitstaff was professional and the food came out quickly. They were very happy with the food. So, when we all returned in September, my husband wanted to take me, so I could... More

Good food! Great Service!! We went on a busy Sunday afternoon and had to wait about 15 minutes to get seated. Once we were seated our server quickly took our drink orders. The decor was refreshing not the traditional Irish Pub stuff. Next time I'm in Ellswood I'll be back.

Great service, great beer selection, and SUCH a good crab/avocado salad. I'd go back today if I wasn't already home in Massachusetts!

When we saw the sign for Finn's, we thought we were walking into an Irish Pub for a beer. To our surprise, this Irish Pub used to be a boxcar. The bar and a few tables were in the boxcar and they had a larger seating area in the back. It was very unique. We ordered some appetizers - fish... More
