Service was friendly and good. Food was hot and cooked perfectly. It was delicious! We left with plenty for another meal each. Only issue was wait time. The waitress checked on us quickly but once we finished eating it felt like forever waiting to get the check. I would definitely go back.

We enjoyed our visit to Finley's. We had ribs and brisket, both were well prepared and a nice portion. I enjoyed the six different sauces that are served on the side. We had the spicy onion rings for an appetizer and they were awesome. Everything was good, prices were fair. Server was good and friendly. We'll return if we have... More

Visited with my wife towards the end of a 6,000 mile road trip. We were served by Chelsea who was very friendly and efficient. Our food was served promptly. We shared potato skins and my wife had black bean burger for mains whilst I had prime rib. We also had 2 glasses of wine each. All very filling and delicious.... More

Best cobb salad I've had in a very long time. Cherry vinagerette dressing was quite good. Wife got full rack of ribs. It was good. Daughter and husband shared a combo, said the brisquet did not measure up to their favorite bbq place. Service was friendly and efficient. Prices were reasonable, and servings were adequate to large. BOTTOM-LINE: I want... More

Stopped by for dinner on a Friday night on the way to Grand Rapids. Had a choice between Applebee's and Finleys-so always wanting to try something different. Started with a fine salad and chose the smoked ribs at the recommendation of the waiter. They were St. Louis style served with a six pack of barbecue sauces that were from the... More

We came here for dinner and had a nice "home made" style meal. It was just regular food that you would find at home, comfort food. This restaurant is great for family dinners.

The smell of the smoker is super enticing. Then you get in. Full bar to the right and diner to the left. If you aren't in mood for BBQ you will have options. Time to get food is catchy! Depends who is working the shift.

We're traveling cross-country and we stopped for a quick lunch. My husband had the Cajun tilapia, I had the shish kabob with rice. The tilapia looked amazing and he ate every bite. The shish kebab was a little bit small. But the flavor was delicious. it also came with a tossed salad. And yeah they're a Coke establishment!!

Finley's is equally good for lunch or dinner. I have eaten there many times and have yet to get a bad meal. My favorite for dinner is their Hawaiian . They specialize in barbecue ribs, which melt in your mouth. Dinners come with two sides for a reasonable price. You also get a small loaf of fresh baked bread while... More

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.
