Dinner choices were very typical Irish pub fare....Fish and Chips for me and Corned Beef and Cabbage for my friend. Both dinners very ample servings and... More

I want to preface my review by stating that I never was able to eat at this restaurant even thought I tried twice on two successive days. The first attempt was on a Friday night and due to the number of one way streets and side roads that were closed it was impossible to get to without parking a fair... More

The staff at Finnigan's Wake was very helpful and friendly. They were excited to share their expansive draught beer selection. The corned beef and cabbage was excellent.

I have been to Finnigan's a couple of times now and it never disappoints!! The food is better than your average pub fare. My family and I have tried several dishes from fish and chips to the lambert and none have disappointed us! Our server today, Sarah, was sweet and very attentive. No doubt we will be back to Finnigan's... More

My first time visiting this pub and restaurant. Loved the selection of IPA'S and beers on tap. The pub and restaurant has an inviting atmosphere and friendly servers/bartenders. Love the decor and vaulted beam ceilings. Compliments the beverages and superb food. You must try if in the area. Open till 2 a.m. for the night owls.

Thank Matthew P
