One person did enjoy the Reuben sandwich. Second person did not enjoy the burger it was overcooked and dry. I ordered the steak and mushroom bowl and it was far too salty to eat. I only ate about 1/4 and when the waitress came to pick up the plates she never asked how the food was or why I had left so much.Not very many true Irish options on the menu either

This was our first visit to Fionn MacCool’s. It was just for a casual family dinner.

We arrived and were greeted at the door…after our vaccination status was validated we were seated. At first the hostess brought us to a table right next to a rowdy group of guys despite the entire dining room being empty.

We had to ask to be moved and even then they were hesitant but moved us to a different table.

Our waiter came to greet us and took our drink order. He then returned to take our appetizer order.

Our appetizer took almost 30 minutes to be served despite the restaurant being empty.

Finally we received our appetizer order and placed our dinner order.

Our dinner then took almost 40 minutes to be served to us again the restaurant was not busy.

Despite all this, the food was very tasty and portions were perfect.

Other than the super slow service, dinner was good. We likely will not return again and will likely not refer others.

Sorry but I can understand it the place was super busy but not when it wasn’t.

Haven't been to Fionn's much since COVID. Made a res for 4 people. The sound from the live music band was unreasonably loud for way too long. We planned an night of drinks, appies and conversation... asked for the bill once our drinks came. There were no convos to be had at my table of four. It was just repeated yelling across the table because of the noise level from the band. Despite sitting away from and out of sight of the band, we could still barely hear each other. Sore throats and headaches were our take away from yelling across the table at Fionn's. I apologized to the server. He apologized back stating he would have left as well because it was so loud and unenjoyable. Hurried our drinks down, paid and left. We walked across the parking lot to the Keg and enjoyed our night there instead with convos, many drinks and many appies.

Food quality was horrible. Nachos were tiny, spinach dip was good but served cold with a handful of broken chips. We were given no cutlery, napkins or plates. Complete waste of money.

I enjoyed the live entertainment, the service was understaffed, waited too long for our orders, we were told the wait staff forgot to enter our order, 1 hour later....not acceptable in my opinion

It was great. The only problem was We wanted to sit closer we could see the band and they held a table for 8 for two hours and no one showed up. The girl at the front kindly split up the table and moved us for the last set. All staff was courteous and service smooth. Fun casual place!

The host that greeted us said we didn’t need to show our vaccine receipt when we took them out to show her (to follow the law). I then couldn’t get the thought out of my head that people in there may not be fully vaccinated as they weren’t asked for proof. Servers were wearing their masks under their chin while going table to table. The live band playing was so loud I couldn’t even hear myself talk.

Not great service and food was not tasty. Drinks took forever to come. They brought apps and main almost same time because they were “pushing” the orders. Server was not friendly at all

Went for lunch with a client on the patio. The area is open, but enclosed enough so that you don’t feel like you are eating in the parking lot.
Food was hot and fresh, served with a smile.

It was great to be back for sure. Disappointed with the Fish and Chips. I have had this menu item in the past and it was great. Not so great this time. Lots of batter and very little fish filet.

We dined inside and it was a hot day. It was so hot inside the restaurant we felt very uncomfortable. We were seated at the table beside the patio and the patio doors were left open the entire time. It didn’t matter if we asked to move, we checked the other side of the restaurant and it was so hot there as well…we were sweating and felt nauseas at one point! As I mentioned it was a very hot day outside so that combined with the air conditioner not on or on so low we couldn’t feel it made for an very uncomfortable dining experience. The lack of consideration for the customers comfort is disturbing, I don’t think I’d revisit. On a side note our server was amazing!

It was a beautiful autumn afternoon and the patio felt sunny and reminiscent of the summer. Our waitress was friendly in a polite and professional manner, took our modified orders without a blink and delivered flawlessly.

Nice Comfortable place
Tables spaced out as per distancing rules
Service was courteous and friendly
Went there because of the great band playing
I stood by my table next to my chair and table and was moving to the music and was told by the Manager to sit down . Could not move standing up
A little extreme if I am actually in my chair standing next to it and moving to the music. Took away the fun :(
I understand we cannot dance but
This was standing up at my table :)
So won’t be going back :)

We ate on the patio which was very pleasant. Prompt, friendly service by our waitress. Food was delivered quickly. I liked that the noise level outside was lower than what you can experience inside. Enjoyed the calamari, chicken sandwich and shepherd's pie, which was delicious. Not too busy and everyone was socially distanced and wore masks when appropriate.
