This was a first time visit (after seeing it while passing by on the way to another restaurant)!! So glad we stopped in!
We were seated immediately and our server, (Rocky), was AWESOME! and was very helpful in answering our questions about some of the menu items. Many choices on the menu made it difficult to decide what to try.. it all sounded good! I ordered the Reuben spring rolls (an appetizer) as I wasn't very hungry and it was a great choice! So tasty and just enough for my meal. The person I had dinner with ordered a sandwich and said it was very good as well. We had a couple drinks and just enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant; also could hear the band who were playing out front, however, we were still able to carry on a conversation inside.
I will definitely be back again when visiting in the Jacksonville area!

This is a nice little Irish restaurant at The Landing in Jacksonville. They have some interesting twists on old favorites; some good, some bad. I had the Braised Short Ribs over Parmesan Risotto. Very tasty and served up quick. They also have some good local IPAs on tap if you're in the mood for a drink.

Stopped by with a friend for a drink. The pub is nicely decorated, the service was good, and the drinks were made with a generous pour. There was also live music from some very entertaining old rockers. If this pub was located in a better spot, I'd easily give it a better-than-average rating. However, the bum factor at The Landing drags it down a notch.

We appreciate your business and taking the time to review Fionn's. Your feedback is so important to our restaurant and we are happy your experience was such a good one. The City of Jacksonville and it's many contributors to tourism are working very hard to see that the Landing is up to the standard expected of our great city. I will pass the review on to them as all feedback is so helpful. Thank you again and we hope you will visit us again!

We were downtown last week particpating in the Challenge Nation Jacksonville race and we ate lunch here with a few freinds. we sat outside and had a nice view of river and downtown, it started to rain a little so we had to move the table in some. I had a cider beer which was pretty good, for lunch i ordered the double decker club and i couldnt even put it in my mouth to each because it was so large, i had to eat the meat seperatly which was ok, the sandwhich was good. we had some chips as well and everything was ok. The service was good, no complaints at all. We dont get downtown much as i would like but i will try it again next time..

We ate dinner here this week and I wish I could say anything good about the place, but I cannot. The servers were not pleasant, the food took forever to get out (especially the Fish & Chips) and once we did get our food it was lousy. I review often on Trip Advisor, and this is the first time I have rated anything Terrible and had nothing good to say. Try a different restaurant if you have to eat at the Landings.
