If you like sports food fun and great atmosphere this is the place very local but not so much that visitors don't feel welcome and comfortable

We loved the food we ordered, especially the poutine, and the service was great! They also had a great selection of beers and outdoor seating.

Could possibly be the coolest of the cool. A true pub. It's like sepia toned invitation to sit and relax. I was kind of hoping a thunderstorm would happen to give us an excuse to extend our stay. The beer list is generous, the cider list as well. It's far removed from the French Quarter madness, damn near in the... More

Came into Finn's for the match - the bar staff were attentive and gave excellent service, Not so the kitchen though. Maybe because of the UK/Liverpool accent, we didn't get a plain Cheddar toastie - we got it with NOLA sausage (which was OK), despite asking for a PLAIN CHEDDAR TOASTIE PLEASE! We enjoyed the game, despite some of the... More

Stephen is awesome and the bar is as cool and laid back as he is. Looking for the home of the New Orleans Celtic Supporters Club? This is it, complete with Celtic TV! Magners in the bottle or can along with a proper pint. You can also watch the other popular matches there with their TVs and satellite access.

Wonderful local Irish Pub operated by authentic Irish owners. Hip, trendy. Warm, friendly, the place "where everyone knows your name". Tasty food and a WIDE offering on tap and in bottles. Full bar. Indoor and outdoor seating. Now even better as it is SMOKE FREE. Outside seating for those who wish to puff. THE place in New Orleans to gather... More

Monday Night is Trivia Challenge Night at Finn's and that is why we were there. Our daughter and a few friends from her school go almost every week and since we were in town we were invited along in hopes of improving their quiz scores. We disappointed them! Finn's has a good selection of local craft beer and of course... More

A good, popular Irish pub with a good selection of beers. First time we had eaten there and was not disappointed! Burger and fish and chips were great!!

We have always loved Finn McCools and try to pay a visit whenever we are in New Orleans. It's a great Irish pub but all the better this trip because we arrived there during crawfish season and found a crawfish boil in progress. Only in New Orleans!
