    We reserved a table while trecking through Universal Studios. What a find! Nice people and great food. I had the corned beef and cabbage and also tried the Fish & Chips. Both great choices. My kids had the chicken fingers & fries and loved them. If you are planning to see the Blues Brothers show, make your reservations for a half hour after the show begins. You will be right there!

    Excited to find my favorite drink on the menu - a shandy. So many places call themselves Irish pubs, but when I try to order a shandy I'm asked, "what's that?". Only disappointment was being seated in family section. As it was just my husband and I, would really have enjoyed a brief respite from screaming children on the bar side. Shepherd's pie and corned beef sandwich did not disappoint. We could hear singer from the pub side on occasion, but he was doing Jimmy Buffet - no Irish tunes. I wish this place was in City Walk so I could return without having to pay admission to theme park!

    It was a good place to celebrate St Patrick's day. The wait staff was very good. The piano player/ singer was good but only had one Irish song.

    We came on Saint Patrick's Day. Their regular menu was great for the occasion: corned beef and cabbage, shepherd's pie, fish and chips, etc. It was not gourmet, but tasty and very reasonably priced. The dining room was open to the bar, where a folk singer performed live. Very enjoyable.

    The meal was disappointing - expensive & poor quality. Unfortunatly that seemed to be the Standard at Universal Studio Parks. The other disappointment was that we went on St Patrick's day, the staff had buttons & beads but the music was Country Western. I expected it to look more like an Irish Pub.

    I loved Finnegan's at Universal Studios Florida. It was a gem especially for St. Patrick's Day! Everything was delicious from the Irish Soda Bread given before the meal to my Grand Ole Burger! They had a contest in which I won a T-shirt! They were absolutely wonderful! They made my St. Patrick's Day very special!

  • I was SO impressed with this

    I was SO impressed with this little Irish pub. Ok the atmosphere was not the greatest, but it does look like a little Irish place, just nothing fancy. However, the food was perfect!! The food was authentic but full of flavor. They have an appetizer called the potato and onion web, it was heaven in a basket! I can't discribe it, just order it, trust me!! (little warning, you do have to like fried food) The bread they offer is Irish soda bread with apple butter, very nice! I had a corned beef sandwich, which sounds pretty boring but it was far from it. The beef was excellent and it had sauteed onions and melted swiss on top, but the best part was the bun, it was a soft pretzel bun and I could have just spent the day eating that bread!
