It's hard to argue with great service, great food & drink, and a very cute environment. We love having lunch at the bar (which, if you've never been there before, is an old diner around which the restaurant is built). Lot's of great seafood options, Irish pub food, and a great selection of beers on tap. Man, I could really... More

We've eaten dinner at Finn's twice, and both were very good experiences. I've had the cheeseburger and the fish, and enjoyed both. The place tends to be crowded, but there is a bar (where a lot of people eat) and a little waiting area in the front where you can have a drink while you wait for your table. Friendly,... More

STopped in to Finn's during lunch hour for nourishment during a long trip. We found the restaurant very comfortable and the wait staff friendly. They offered a great selection on the menu to choose from. All freshly prepared foods were satisfying.
