Nick Fink's is older than I am and that's old. The atmosphere is worth the trip. It is a seasoned bar that serves excellent food.

We stopped here later in the evening and had some fries and drinks. I really liked the lay out and the décor. The wait staff was great and everyone had a good time.

Local watering hole. Service is good and beer and drinks reasonably priced. Great spot to get a beer with friends. Not sure they have any food service to speak of.

Description
sit down dining + take-out servicefull bar + live music + major credit cards accepted Nick Finks is a historic tavern located in Comstock Park just down the road from 5/3 Ballpark. Having undergone a fresh makeover, Finks retains its classic charm while displaying a new sheen and enthusiasm. Come experience our new menu with Monster Burritos and Finks Double Burgers featured as the classic tavern favorites. Live music every Saturday provides the entertainment, while GR's most reasonably price drinks raise the spirits. And by "spirits" we mean the literal thing - stay long and / or late enough and you may encounter one of our famous ghosts!
