I'm a local, and I've been going to this restaurant before it was Finn's. For the past couple of years, the hostess and servers have gone from acting somewhat indifferent to downright arrogant toward the customers. During my last (and it will be my last) visit, we were told that they do not take reservations. We were a good-tipping group... More

The food is reliably delicious across the menu, and the staff are very personable. They have a wide variety of brews on tap, as well as a full bar and drink specials. It's a very popular place locally, so there might be a wait for a table, but one can always grab a drink at the bar and listen to... More

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

The crab poppers are simply the best tasting in Maine!! The service was excellent. We like to sit in the high tables by the bar. Make reservations!! Both of our hamburgers were excellent!! One had avacado, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato and served on a terrific roll and the other was with bacon, cheese, lettuce and tomato. We loved the... More

Food was good, but nothing really Irish about it, especially when your main course says chips and it comes with what would be known as 'crisps' in the UK! I've never had anything like that in an actual Irish Pub before! With that said, this was a very busy place, which on the first night we enquired was full the... 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
