This is what I call an "old folks" restaurant. Good portions, but not huge of home cooking comfort food. I find their BBQ kind of bland, but their meat and potatoes type entries are good for the price as are sandwiches. Good soups and salads. Nothing fabulous here, but for $15-20 per person, it's a fair deal. Take grandma here.... More

This is our second time stopping into Finley's in the past few years, as we broke up our drive from Chicago to Toronto. Again - the number of Michigan beers that were available was astonishing. The bartender let us try as many as we wanted, and was helpful in suggesting what she thought that we'd like. Ordered chicken fingers, and... More

I went to Finley's on a Saturday night for dinner. They were starting to get busy but a server came to our table almost immediately. She took care of our beverages in a timely manner and we ordered 2 different cheeseburgers and the Hawaiian chicken. Dinner was served quickly and both gentlemen loved their cheeseburgers. My chicken was very good... More

The restaurant is very nice with a nice cocktail bar. Happy hour goes on in the afternoon. Without question their ribs are great. Good salads. My friend and I usually go in mid to late afternoon. Small crowd and good service. Not a impressive dining experience but way above any fast food place. I had half salad and soup with... More

We went there for dinner on a Saturday. The food was good and plentiful. The waitress was friendly. The prices were reasonable. A lot of local / regional beers on tap. They bring you a couple types of bread before your meal. It was a typical restaurant you would find around hotels.

We live near Houston, Texas. We go home to Michigan for our steaks and for baby back ribs, because Finley's does them best. Prices are amazingly cheap, compared to what we pay at home. The steaks are occasionally overcooked, but the management tries to make things right if there's ever a problem. We have met here as a couple and... More

I wish they offered the birthday deal during the month of your birthday, not just the day of your birthday. I wanted to get something different but even with all the new items, I ended up getting the Hawaiian chicken, as always. We wouldn't have come if it weren't free for my dinner because this place is expensive for what... More

I love going here with my husband and sometimes I take our daughter for lunch with me. I love the prime rib dinner when I am with my husband. When I am there with our daughter for lunch I like getting soup and salad. I have always got good service there and that is very important to me.

The food here is okay. Nothing special but not terrible either. The problem I have here is the service, which is very slow. We seem to run into this problem each time we've gone here. It takes a while to get seated, it takes a while to get your order taken, it takes a while to get your food and... More

Nothing great about this place. Service was slow. Great selection of beers though. Staff was friendly though.

We are excited to have our own smokehouse located on the outdoor patio of each of our Finley's locations -- where we smoke our meats (Texas Beef Brisket, Georgia-style Pulled Pork, Michigan Raised "White Meat" Turkey, St. Louis Ribs and more) all low and slow for up to 17 hours over apple wood to bring you what we feel is the Best BBQ around!...Now Catering!

Our Black Angus steaks are hand-trimmed prepared the way you like. Not just ordinary steaks! But great tasting steaks!

Baby back Ribs Of course, our menu wouldn't be complete without our award-winning baby back ribs. Positively No Doubt! The Best Baby Back Ribs Money Can Buy. Tender fall-off-the-bone basted with our award-winning Kansas City barbecue sauce.

Prime Rib Our prime rib starts with carefully selected beef. Then we hand-rub each rib with our special seasonings then we slow roast it for hours.
