Love all of the TVs for sports viewing, the new bar is HUGE and the beer is cold. The limited menu until they get their legs under them is disappointing though, looking forward to a full menu.

Met girlfriends at the new Mickey Finns in Libertyville. Great open bright airy space. Love the long bar , line of T.V monitors and lots of windows. Great place to meet after golf,shopping or just want a great meal. Plus, you are within walking distance to some interesting stores and vibrant downtown area.

I had the smoked brisket sandwich. It was accompanied with coleslaw, fries and baked beans. It was delish. Perfect smokey flavor and tender. The fries were crisp and the beans were outstanding. Service was attentive and polite. my mom had the prime rib sandwich and commented how good it was. Only disappointment was they had no coffee at lunchtime. Still working out a few glitches like all new restaurant openings.

Don't miss the dingy interior and odd smell from the old spot. Look forward to returning soon.

Best of luck to the New Mickey Finns!

We have now gone to Mickey Finn's since they opened in their new location at 345 N Milwaukee Ave. Very nice remodel and the same good food as we had in the old location. Can't wait for the patio to open for the summer.

Brian the owner has hit a home run with the "new" Mickey Finn's. Great beer, good food & the atmosphere feels like downtown Chicago. Super space for parties and special events. Parking is better and it was time for a change.

I agree with the other reviewers, the new space's layout is a disaster.

Libertyville and the surrounding area has plenty of "me too" sports bars- why create another one? Apparently that's where the money is rather than continue the unique atmosphere that was this once great brewpub.

R.I.P. Finn's, you will be missed.
