Finn's is really a good lively fun pub to have dinner. Menu is good, food ok as best you will find in most pubs. He buzz is very good and it feels like a place where people live to hang out. Service is quick and ice cold beers come quickly on a wink to the waitress. I can recommend it... More

A group of 5 of us went to the pub based on a recommendation from the desk person at our hotel. We all ordered something different and each meal was excellent. So good in fact we went back for two more nights. The second night we all ordered something different just to try as much of the menu as possible.... More

I've been eating at Finn's for years now. Best place in town. Good prices, nice staff, and the food is spectacular. I've never had something I didn't like!

We enjoyed our supper time meal at Finn's Irish pub. There are many delicious choices on the menu. The servings are plenty. Lots of draft beer choices too. The waitress was very friendly and offered a sample of the beer before I ordered. We would have stayed another day in Ellsworth just to enjoy another meal there, but the pub... More

Finn's has great food, good drinks, and a friendly bar staff! We love it. Nice selection of seasonal martinis, the fish poppers with jalapeno sour cream are awesome, as are the salads, pub steak...and pretty much anything else you order there! We go there often and it is always a popular spot with the locals.

We stopped here for dinner on our way to Bar Harbor. It was the only place open so late at night, and I didn't expect much. I had no idea I was in for such great food. I got their fried fish, which was perfectly done. It wasn't greasy at all. But the real star of the meal was the... More

Really enjoyed this authentic Irish Pub. Same dishes you'll find in Ireland along with great beer selections. Guinness on tap along with a lot of other unique local Maine brews. I enjoyed the steak and mushroom pie and she enjoyed the fish cakes. Recommend the Marshal Wharf Sexy Chaos Russian Imperial Stout Outstanding experience.

We have been here a couple of times now. Both times food was very good. Some people mention that the portions are "small". I think most restaurants provide way too much food and usually charge more for it as well. This is one of the reasons we have an obesity problem in the US. Portions were PERFECT here, and prices...
