Location, music, & Service the best
I have to say that the staff was fantastic, and we had a ton of fun!!! This is our third time there in our 3 visits to Universal. So I can say with great confidence that the chef must of had an off day when making the shepherds pie. The meat was over seasoned and the mashed potatoes were under seasoned. My husband had the Bangers and Mashed and they were Fantastic! The Scottish Eggs were done to perfection as well.
Would we go back??? In a heart beat!!! It is already on our list of places to visit on our next trip to Orlando in a few months!

A great Irish Pub. We sat at a table in the bar area. There was a man singing Irish songs and encouraging parton participation. It was a fun time.
Our waitress was extremely friendly.
Overall, good experience.

Great Irish Pub Food and Atmosphere
Our party of six had a great time here. Had 6pm reservations on a Thursday and had no problem sitting a few minutes early. Knew we were in for a good time when we heard the gent with a guitar singing Irish Folk songs and getting the audience to participate.
Now the food...it was Great !!! we had at our table, Shepherds Pie, Fish n Chips, Bangers and Mash, Glazed Chicken, Chicken Pot Pie and the potato soup, crusty onion's and potato appetizer and the Irish Soda bread were all outstanding.
Then we had great desserts with Irish Coffee. And did I fall to say that the price was really, really reasonable for a group of six.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and will be the first place I would eat on any return trip.

Great Irish pub atmosphere,
Great Irish pub atmosphere, just in time....after 8 hours in the parks. Meals we ordered included delicious kid-friendly meals (grilled cheese, hamburger) and very satisfying corn beef & cabbage with red potatoes. Great atmosphere- Irish sing-along and we enjoyed a view of the passing parade as well. Waitress was very personable. Had a slight glitch as we were locked out of the restaurant for a few minutes due to an early closing for Middle School bash. But had time enough to enjoy a few Smithwick;s and regain some of our lost mo-jo for another round of rides in the park. Highly recommend the corned beef & cabbage.

We had an amazing time at Finnegan's the staff were very helpful and attentive. The Food was very good and fresh, and the service was quick. I really enjoyed the live music as well. They really held true to the Irish them and we will definitely be back!

Delicious authentic food
Finnegan's is a great spot to take a rest from the park and enjoy some authentic tastes from Ireland! The food is delicious, especially the Kilkenny pot pie! If you are looking for something more than your standard burgers and pizza, this is your place!

Favorite Universal Restaurant
We've eaten at Finnegan's several times and have never been disappointed. For a theme park restaurant, the food and drinks are good. The bar is also a great place to escape the Florida heat and humidity and enjoy some live music.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time dining here and we will definitely return. The food was great and so was the service. The staff really impressed me with their care, concern, and diligence in working with my child who has severe food allergies. They went above and beyond to make sure he was safe and we were satisfied.

Great place for an AC break
The food was good and the prices comparable to other places in the park. It was nice to enjoy a meal out of the heat.
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
great theme park diining
the food and service at finnegan's is fabulous! it's nice to sit and be waited on during a busy day at a theme park. and the prices are comparable to restaurants outside the park.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our server was wonderful....It was a great break in our day. It was my birthday the day we went and she made it a wonderful meal.

Best at Universal
If you want a break at Universal and not fight quick service - this is the place. Fun, good eats, and very reasonably priced.

Tasty theme park food
We enjoyed our lunch here. Our party of ten was seated early and drinks served right away. Food was good and service was quick. Great place to get out of the hot sun and away from crowds!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
the potato onion fried bunch was delicious and very filling even though we didn't get it before our meals so we had to send our meals back.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I wish I had more stomachs!
I'm a fan of Irish food and Finnegan's has a great menu. I told the waitress that I wasn't sure what I wanted to order because it all looked so good. She asked what I wanted and then made a perfect recommendation. My wife and daughter enjoyed their meals also. This is a great place and I would certainly dine there again.

Great place to watch Prem Football, with a good food to boot!!

Finnegan's was outstanding! Service and food was fantastic. Would definately reccomend to any one who plans on visiting Universal.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must go when you're at Universal
I highly recommended to anyone that goes to Universal Studio's in Orlando, FL. Excellent food at good prices with excellent service. We had a very positive experience.
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
the food is really good, excellent
the food is really good, excellent prices for being inside a theme park. I've been to almost every Disney restaurant and honestly over the past few years their prices have gotten so ridiculous that a normal family can't afford to eat anywhere at disney. Universal Studios on the other hand has good food at regular prices, I highly recommend it. Our server, Ellen, was outstanding! I highly recommend her as well lol
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to Universal multiple times and I never knew this restaurant was there. I found it on the Universal website and thought I would give it a try. I would highly recommend this restauarnt!

This was our first time to Universal, we enjoyed the park and the restaurant was very good as well. It was a step up from the typical park restaurant. My food was warm not hot, but very tasty. The family enjoyed their meals and the Irish soda bread was really good. We would definitely go back.

Irish Pub at the heart of Universal
This place is a must-visit if you are in Universal looking for something real to eat. The prices aren't outrageous - you're looking at spendin $10-$15 on yourself and $5-6 on each of your kids. The fish and chips were superb, and the deluxe burger was pretty good too. I was surprised there weren't more people eating here, especially since we were there right at 7 when the parade starts, which marches right on by the restaurant. We got an up-close view right from out table (you'll need to get a window spot). I also had the irish beer sampler. I would definitely come here again.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was very good, atmosphere and staff were very nice...definitely would recommend to others
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pleased with food and service
We came to this restaurant for lunch on a Saturday while at Universal Studios. Restaurant was busy but not too packed. Service was excellent as well as the food. Good selection of beers too.

Always consistent food and beverages from the bar. Can be hard to get into at times, but planning ahead helps.

Good food, just a few hiccups.
Our waiter was nice. He did forget our soda bread but brought it quickly when we reminded him. My food was good, we had to send back the persons food I was dining with b/c it was still cold. But otherwise it was good!
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Place to have fun
We go here to have fun and good food and cold beer. We have been at least 20 or more times in 10 years. We live in Naples and the place is in Orlando so i say that a good attendance.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed a relaxing dinner while waiting for Universal to close and reset for Halloween Horror Night. Staff came through to verify our HHN tickets and provide a wrist band. Food was good and although extremely busy service was good. Fun music/songs during dinner coming from Bar area. This would be a fun, relaxing end to a day at the park any time.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM

Ate at the Bar, Food was quick and good as always.

the service was great

Great cozy spot & fantastic service
This is a wonderful place to stop and grab a bite and a brew. Get away from the heat outside and get waited on vs. counter service and fighting for a table. We had made reservations and were seated right away. For the second time in one year we had the same server Tom. He is the best. Always friendly, attentive and knows the menu inside and out. We love his section which is close to the bar and not so full of kids. We will be back and ask for Tom.

Center of Universal Studios
Great spot for dining inside Universal Studios. Good pub food and a lively atmosphere.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great brunch and drinks are wonderful. We will visit this again on our next trip to Universal Studios Florida. Our waitress was Great if you get a chance ask for Brie she will make you feel right at home.

Great fun for hhn night
Was great for HH night. Have the chicken stingers, they were very good…
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great place to eat. The choice of food is refreshing from the normal American food and the price is good. The only negative things was the reservation service in this restaurant doesn't seem to work and the man singing in the bar things the group oasis are from Liverpool instead of Manchester
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a reservation at Finnegan's
We had a reservation at Finnegan's prior to the start of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal. Daughter loved the Sheppard Pie. Waitress was fast and efficient - exactly what we needed.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you're doing Hollywood Horror Nights, nothing beats staying in the park and eating at Finnegan's. Fast friendly staff, great food at a reasonable price. Drinks are good and also at a decent price for the price and the beer selection is excellent. Loved the Scotch Eggs and the Corned Beef Sandwich was outstanding.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Irish Pub & Restaurant
Finnegan's is a great Irish pub & restaurant. Wonderful Irish, British, and Scottish food, especially the Potato and Onion Web and especially, especially the hot Irish soda bread served when you first place your order. Great selection of beers, especially with the inclusion of hard cider on tap. Great fun for couples, but family-friendly, too--in both the restaurant section and the pub section. We ate there twice within three days. In the evening, the service was fast and efficient--during lunch, a little less so (and these were during a slower season, so the restaurant/pub was not overfull with clients). Great Irish musician, who was very in-tune with the patrons.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had seating for HHN and the time we spent there was just great. Our group covered ages 16 thru 70 yrs. and we all had fun. The service was fast and more than friendly. Our waitress was outstanding. She took the time to answer all our questions and actually helped plan our moves for the night. You have a wonderful staff and we will be back. Thank you, it's a pleasure to spend time in such a gem.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to wait for Horror Nigh
We made a 5:30 reservation so we could stay after the park closed until it opened back up for Horror Night. The fish and Chips was yummy and the beer flights were tasty too. We had a great waiter who did a wonderful job of juggling all the tables. We would definitely recommend.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Finnegan's on Horror Night
Extremely busy as it is right at the "holding pen" for early entry to Halloween Horror Night. Typical Irish Pub atmosphere with a busy noisy bar and live entertainment. Dining room was a shade quieter. Friendly wait staff. Service was excellent and the food quality was definitely above average. Certainly not what I expect in pub fare. We had a reservation and were seated immediately upon arrival. We were able to complete our meal and take a drink with us to join the throng waiting to start the haunted house touring. Will definitely return on our next visit to Universal Orlando!
10/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
This restaurant had very good quality food. The portions were decent. The atmosphere is lively. We had been in the past. This restaurant is consistent in quality and service.

Universal's Pub in the Hub
Located in the hub of Universal Studio's Orlando you can find this hopping Irish Pub. Food was great. Service was great. Music was a bonus. Fish & Chips are a must!
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall there was nothing wrong with this eaterie but I think we were spoilt by having been to WDW Irish pub and seen the dancing and entertainment laid on for you as you eat.
As usual the Staff were excellent and attentive, the food was good.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
There was an Irish gentleman playing the guitar and singing Irish songs. He was Great! The live music created an authentic pub atmosphere. The food was great too. Two thumbs up!
