We have been here several times over the last two years and have always had a great meal and great service. It is a small bar and small restaurant and we always have a great time. We usually go for the burgers (they are fantastic) but we have also had other things on the menu and they are all delicious.... More

Great food. Fast and friendly service. Clean dining room but a bit cramped and crowded which made it very loud. Difficult to have a quiet conversation.

i came back with a friend after enjoying a visit last year and we were not disappointed. The place was busy, but we got a seat at the bar, had some local craft beer and ordered our food. A huge boiled dinner which I could not finish for $12. Service was quick and friendly We'll be back

This restaurant never fails to please. It does not matter if you are having one of the specials, regular entrees, or the Reuben Sandwich you can count on a great experience. From the moment you are greeted by the hostess you feel like you belong there.

It seems like an amazing comment considering all of the wonderful fresh seafood around but Finn's is one terrific restaurant. We visited on a Wednesday evening in mid August, the height of season. We arrived at about 6:30 pm and waited for about 30 minutes for a table. Our waitress greeted us immediately and brought our drinks and water just... More

This is just "not another Irish pub!" The food here was Awesome! The service is so good and they were busy on a Friday night. They have 20 local taps so how could you go wrong?!? Hamburger with avocado was great - fresh and the bun was almost like a chibata. We will come again!

Stopped here for lunch when leaving the area. Server was fine. Wife had the haddock sandwich without the roll and found that she had enough breading on the fish to equal another roll. I had a reuben and it was fine, if somewhat small. Meal was ok, but not the best I have had in an Irish restaurant.

Our family of six adults enjoyed lunch at Finns. We started with Irish chips and a scotch egg. We had the Kildore chicken, tarragon chicken salad, crab cakes, shepherds pie, which were all good. The crab wrap was ok. Chips and a burger were good, too, but some of the food was not quite warm enough. A party our size... More
