Established in 1984., Finn Maccool's has been recently renovated and transformed from what was an Irish public house restaurant To what feels more of an upscale Hamptons type atmosphere. The restaurant and bar once decorated in a typical dark manor has been replaced with a light interior, stylish light fixtures, white granite stone U-Shaped bar, and plush seating. The bar is wrapped with bar stools and plenty of high top seating and booths. The main dining area has also been updated with bright fabrics and Celtic artwork.
Finn Maccool's has an extensive menu comprising of a diverse range of burgers & sandwiches, pizzas, appetizers, and salads. The newly designed bar offers a variety of draft beers, featuring 5 from right here on Long Island. The happy hour spans from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Friday & Saturday: 11:30am - 12:00am
Sunday: 11:30am - 10:00pm
Wait staff are a gem. They really make the place.
The food is excellent here. They have a big
Menu so come with an idea of what you want to eat to help narrow down your choices. Nice atmosphere and good service. Great for groups.
Great meal and fun restaurant. Service was really lacking, though. Our server was a little nasty and gruff with us at the end of the meal.
Have been here in the evening and today’s reservation was for brunch! Had a pleasant time!
Wonderful place would recommend it
Their food is basic but they do the basics very well. The wait staff are all terrific and really try to help in whatever way they can. A very stress free place to go and relax.
Waitress was very helpful in describing the beers.
A fine time was had by all
Food was great, music good, service could have been a little more attentive.
I ordered a menu item of ribeye steak with green clili rice, spinach and salsa verde. Steak and spinach were fine, i was served plain rice and some other red salsa. I asked the waiter why my dinner was slightly different. He wasn’t aware of the details of the dish. But he went back to the kitchen to inquire.
The chef stated that the green chilis were in the salsa not the rice. I’m not fluent in Spanish or Italian, but Verde means Green. Not sure why I got a tomato based res salsa.
I felt like I got a BS excuse and the staff wanted me to eat and go. To the restaurant management I ask that do not use bus boys as waiters. It demeans the restaurant and truly good waiters.
The waiter took to long to check in with us and didn't come back for long spans of time. we were ready to order and had to ask for him to be found. Usually, I have had good service so it was disappointing.
Danny is a fantastic waiter. He is an excellent server and cares about the business. An absolute gem.
Always a solid neighborhood spot. Good food and decent service.
restaurant did not make us feel welcome. felt ignored and taken for granted. food was good, but that good enough to overcome the service and attitudes of the wait staff.
Always a great evening out!
It was really nice! I've never been to Finn MacCool's. The service; drinks and food were all excellent!
First time back since they re-opened and was very happy. Good food, good atmosphere, live music. I will definitely go back.
First and probably last visit unfortunately, overpriced, incorrectly prepared burgers, calamari appetizer was rubbery. Website advertised multiple local beers, waiter said no, only one. Def. Not worthy of the $100 bill for family of 4.
Loving it with the fresh renovations. Food is excellent and so is the service.
Met with longtime friends that have not seen each other in a while and the staff never rushed us .It was a great place for lunch and catching up.We will go back.
Unfortunately, our waiter barely checked on us. It was annoying as we couldn't order easily.
Great place to meet friends and family. Recently renovated. Irish pub for grown-ups. Good food. Great value. Got the seared ahi tuna appetizer, very good. Fish and chips also good, although my friends version seemed a bit off. Can’t go wrong with a hamburger or Sheppard’s Pie. Salmon and branzino also good.
Nicely redone after fire. Good for burger and beer. Do not get the fish.
Always a great meal at Finn's. Food is delicious and there is a great selection of beers on tap.
Easter dinner which should have been a nice night out but was ruined by this Terrible experience. The restaurant was not crowded yet they put us in a room with a large party going on. They then moved us to a small crowded table. We finally got moved to a booth where we were completely ignored for over 20 minutes. The waitstaff were busy talking in the back by the kitchen and not waiting on the customers. We got up because we had enough of this nonsense and as we were leaving the hostess asked if we enjoyed our meal. Seriously the water was delicious. They made no attempt to apologize or at least acknowledge they dropped the ball. Very disappointed not the place it used to be. We ended up at Louie’s and had great service and a fantastic meal.
Load and very young crowd. Great Guinness. Good food. Loved the cashel blue salad.
Great local restaurant. Reasonable good food and service
Great local place
We loved this place. We went for St. Patrick's Day and had a great time. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Irish music on the side was the icing on the cake. Would definitely recommend.
Nice restaurant for families. Appetizers were good. Entrees were good; nothing to, "write home," about. Servers were great. There were Irish step dancers for St Patrick's Day.
The food and service at Finn McCool's was excellent. Not outstanding but excellent! The service was a little slow but it was a busy time so that was to be expected. I ordered the calamari appetizer which was really delicate and perfectly done. I also ordered the porterhouse pork chop ( which wasn't a porterhouse cut) what was none the less perfectly done. Not large portions but ample enough. It came with a small side of Brussel sprouts and roasted potatoes, again ample but not a large portion. All very well done. My fiance got the shrimp and capellini and was very tasty. That portion was okay as well. Another friend of mine got the shepherd's pie which according to her was okay but not outstanding or anything special. All in all it still wasn't wonderful experience worth the four stars not the five. I would definitely go back.
Great local place for a burger and drinks. Good service.
Great local place for a burger or drink
The food was good and the service was very good even on Valentine's Day. Will definitely come again .
It has been years since last visit. Place looks really good. The compliment ends here. Started off with a shrimp cocktail. They looked mutant - super big. The best part was the size. Did not taste good - did not have a good crisp texture. Disappointment. Next had a burger- not very memorable either. What made it worse was a long strand of hair also occupying the plate. Shame on me I said nothing - but after seeing it and not being fond of the shrimp I just let it go. Not coming back here anytime soon. Can't find a reason to so.
Dinner with friends. Fun night and accommodated our dietary changes to menu items without question.
Nice dinner and ambiance. THe shrimp crab cakes were delicious but the salad with it small for an entre.
The morn more I come to Finn McCool's for dinner, The more I like it. :)
I used to come here when I was in my 20s and was expecting it to be at best a quick bite and nostalgic. I was instead pleasantly surprised. The whole place was bright but cozy and definately bustling. We were seated in a booth next to the kitchen and the saxophone player (he was good and not at all too loud.). We were quickly greeted and gave our drink and appetizer orders. We waited a min. amount of time for those to arrive and the waiter took our dinner orders (prime rib x2). While we waited we enjoyed the atmosphere. The place was full (we were there at 6:30 on a Sat) but it was nicely spaced. The food arrived after about 10 minutes. When ut arrived I asked for butter and steak knives. We ended up asking the manager who got it to our table which is no big deal but just a mention.
The food was really good. My husband felt his was rarer than he asked for but he still enjoyed it. We will be back!
So disappointed... Always come for the Cesar Salad and am never disappointed. This salad must have sat in the fridge for a week.
