My first time visiting this pub and restaurant. Loved the selection of IPA'S and beers on tap. The pub and restaurant has an inviting atmosphere and friendly servers/bartenders. Love the decor and vaulted beam ceilings. Compliments the beverages and superb food. You must try if in the area. Open till 2 a.m. for the night owls.

Had more places been available, this probably wouldn't have been my choice but it proved to be quite satisfactory. The menu options were what might be expected - fish and chips, corned beef and cabbage, etc. The food was filling and tasty. The beer selection was... More

Love eating here with my Sweetheart, especially when we can sit on the patio. The food is always good, and the servers friendly. Heck even the other customers are a treat!

Took my Irish mom here when she was in town. The food was good, had the Shepherds pie, huge portion and very hearty. Service was friendly but took forever for food to come. Server kept apologizing but it was a bit frustrating. The atmosphere didn't really feel like an Irish pub. They were playing lite rock type music nothing Irish... More

My experience here is generally 4-5 stars, but today I had a 3 star experience. Today I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich version of the new fried spicy chicken sandwich that I can't remember the name of. I also asked for the ranch on the side. I made my order and the waitress nodded her head so I assumed she... More

We ate there with four friends and had lamb burgers, reubens, corned beef and cabbage and salmon. Everyone loved their choices. All of us look for good quality food- personally, I try to be very careful how I spend my food calories as well as my dollars and I think Finnigan's offers quality food for fair prices in a fun,...

Excellent pub, nice and open plan inside. Good Guinness, not quite Dublin standards but very good. Would recommend a visit.

My fiancé has been here twice before with coworkers; today was my first visit. We had the fish & chips and corned beef & cabbage. Both dishes were delicious and fairly priced for the portions we received. Our server was friendly and the service was quick. We will be back!

I haven't been to Finnegan's Wake for some years but upon my return it's great the see that it has only got better! The food is great and they now have a hidden gem. The Malt Bar... For those Whisky (Scot spelling) people you will love the upstairs Malt Bar. Ian the Host and his team will steer you in... More
