  • "There was no one in the restaurant at 8:30 which seemed strange. It had a pub feel. The food was average and the prices were decent. The waitress was wonderful and very helpful as we were on the dining plan. We wouldn't go back - would definitely try one of the many choices at City Walk."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Our main complaint is that our waitress had a nasty attitude and wasn't very pleasant at all. My son spilled his drink and she took forever to get us napkins to clean up the mess, I told her there was a big pile on the floor under my other sons feet, she said not to worry about it; my oldest son had to eat making sure he didn't step in it and by the end of the meal the floor was covered in the soda."

  • "From the drinks to the steak everything was bad. When my steak arrived it was cold with a cold slab of butter on top. The salad served was not what was ordered. We had to flag down the waitress to request more drinks. Restaurant was not busy."

  • "This was a highlight on our trip to Orlando. Every entree was better than the next. I got fish and chips (which my husband shared), my daughter got chicken potpie, and my niece ordered the corned beef and cabbage. All were outrageous!!! Served with hot Irish soda bread and apple butter. We will definitely be back."

If you have never tried Finnegan's I highly recommend that the next time you are at Universal you do. Trust me, we will!"

  • "We had a party of ten at dinnertime and got great food and great service. Finnegan's was a great break from the park!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "I know there are several places to eat at Universal, but every year we look forward to Finnigans. The service is great, food is to die for! and the people there are fantastic. One of the chef's named Miles came to our table and talked with us for about 10 minutes, wanted to know how we enjoyed our meal, Universal and the Orlando area."

  • "Finnegan's has a friendly atmosphere. It felt great to get out of the Florida heat and sit in the air conditioning. Good food and a cold beer were also a treat. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We visited this place last year when we were at Universal, had a better meal and total experience. This year, our server was certainly friendly enough, but was spread too thin to be very attentive. The food was okay, but the kitchen was very, very SLOW, even though it seemed fully staffed but the restaurant wasn't even half full. Salt and pepper shakers available by request only? That's odd."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "The food was okey. The service was fine. But not anything to really get excited over. The booth we sat in had food in the seat. We had to ask for someone to clean it up before we could be seated. It is an irish restaurant with air conditioning at Universal Studios. The selling point is that it was air conditioned inside dining. That's about it."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "The waiter was nice, attentive, and helpful; the food was very very delicious, I ordered the potato and onion webb, and the salmon dinner; the live music was also very enjoyable."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "We happened in trying to avoid thunderstorms and found a surprisingly good meal. Portions were big. The Guinness stew was quite good with lots of beef. My daughter enjoyed the fruit and sorbet plate. Service was fast and friendly. Only complaint was that the air conditioning was very cold...especially when everyone was wet. Would go back on our next trip. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Considering I booked this table a long time ago, the table I was given was awful. It was situated in a thoroughfare and the amount of people passing and nudging us was beyond a joke. The food was ok but not outstanding, it was better than the fast food outlets found in the park but then again you paid for the honour of table service."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "The Scottish Eggs are a must try. Very good service. I had the draft beer sampler which was a great way to try the different beers. All of the food is really good. "

  • "This was my favorite meal inside the park. Delicious Irish fare and a full bar! The Cornish Pastis were amazing. I had the shepherds pie and my husband had the bangers and mash. Both were very good."

  • "Derek was our server. Great sense of humor. Very attentive. Made good recommendations. Would recommend the restaurant just because of him alone. Food was pretty good too and we are picky."

    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We were seated quickly even though they were busy. The waitress was wonderful. We tried a hard apple beer which was very good. We tried the Scotch eggs and that was good. The chicken pot pie was very good and so was the stew. The Pot of gold coffee was amazing!! This restaurant is worth a stop!! They had live music the whole time we were there. They were very good to families making sure all the kids were happy. We really had a good time and the staff was wonderful. "

    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "The food was very good. We got our drinks and appetizers right away. After that though we waited 40 minutes before we got our lunch served. Didn't seem to be the wait staff's fault but a slow kitchen. And it wasn't that crowded so it should not have taken that long. But if you need time out of the hot sun for lunch at the amusement park it's a good choice."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "Picked this place randomly as somewhere to eat whilst at the Universal parks, and turned out to be a great find. Menu was varied and provided some traditional English/Irish options which the kids loved. Portions were a good size, vegetarian options were tasty and overall we had a great time. Would recommend this as something that steps away from the traditional American fare in many of the on-park restaurants. Good value for money."

  • "DELICIOUS FOOD!!! VERY NICE PLACE TO EAT. RECOMMENDED!!!!"

  • "On a recent vacation to Universal's Studios we ate dinner at Finnegan's. On our visit we chose to sit in the bar dining area instead of the dining room so that we could listen to the one man band playing guitar and singing Irish songs. The bar area was lively but, we enjoyed it. The beer was cold and went very well with our food. We started with Scotch Eggs and Irish soda bread. I had the salmon over mashed potatoes. It was excellent! I would recommend eating at this restaurant or stopping in for a cold beer while visiting Universal Studios."
