We stopped off at Finns for a steak on Saturday evening. Finns dont taking advance bookings so you give your name and wait in the bar for a table. The bar is small so it was standing room only. More like a 'holding area'. Perhaps took 40 to 50 mins.

Excellent steaks.
Very dissappointed with the accompanying diced frozen vegetable mix and frozen shop chips.
We asked for onions and this was billed as an extra.

Overall, it was dissappointing considering the discomfort of the long wait standing and we were still hungry as neither of us found the frozen turnip/carrot mix palatable.

Brilliant steaks - always.
Eaten there many times never been disappointed.
Even though you cannot book (unless it's over 6 people) it is well worth the wait as the food is superb.

Ate here recently as a family group for mum's birthday. We had a lovely meal although it was expensive. The young waitress that served us was very attentive and sweet - credit to her.Would def eat here again because of quality of food but there are much better value places to eat around Mayo/Galway border. Be aware - they do not take small group .bookings.

Prices too high for what they offer. Service good. Frozen chips and what appeared to be frozen vegetables used rather than home cut potatoes and fresh locally sourced vegetables. Couldn't they state on the menu where they source their meat, fish, fruit & vegetables? Overall not good enough for a restaurant. Bread that was offered, a little thinly sliced. Over all, below average and definately over priced. Coffee burnt. And please, update your menu, it needs changing.

Ok lets get the bad point out of the way first. This place does not take bookings!!!!! This sort of thing really annoys me as it is left to pot luck how long you may have to wait to get a table, so immediately you are left with a decision to make, should I stay (have I time to wait) or should I go (I have other things to do)! Sorry but this really really bugs me.
Once you do reach your table, you will see that the dining areas are warm and welcoming, most staff are good and the food portions are massive though still of high quality. If dining here, skip lunch otherwise you wont be able for 3 courses.
Would recommend despite the waiting.
