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.

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.

Great neighborhood place - People quickly get to know your likes - Try really hard to accommodate all your needs.
Saturday night they have an incredible SAX player who really reads the atmosphere and knows exactly what to play.
Bar scene is on point with regulars and soon to be regulars.
Food selection is appealing to all types - anywhere from a burger to prime ribs.
Personally we love the onion soup, stuffed shrimp, turkey burger and a few other specialties.
Special orders don't upset them
Try Finns - you wont be sorry

The burger was great, as was the fish and chips. The third member of our party went with the daily special (Prime Rib) and really enjoyed it.

Got to the restaurant and was greeted by the hostess dressed as a witch. When I looked around all the staff were wearing costumes. I know it is Halloween and I can be as festive as anyone but I didn’t appreciate it while dining. I had heard the restaurant had been made more upscale compared to what it had been but the unprofessional appearance of the staff set the tone of the evening. The staff spent most of the time admiring each other’s costumes taking away from the attentiveness they should have given their tables. The prices of the food on the menu were a bit more than anticipated for a “bar” type menu. The food itself was ok but nothing to write home about. I will not be returning anytime soon. Bottom line: If you want to be bar be a bar. If you want to be something more than that then do that! But decided what you want to be!

Exceptional service. Stayed at the bar for dinner after having a cocktail as it was such a great vibe. Tom, the bartender was professional, attentive and welcoming. It is clearly a neighborhood gathering spot as Tom (and the evening shift of bartenders) seemed to know most of the clientele by name. Food was excellent as well (crab cakes recommended by a regular at the bar were outstanding). Came to Port for a show but would definitely return just to go to Finn's.

Decent sized menu offerings. Food is just "OK". Prices border on upscale. Servers appeared inattentive and repeatedly didn't listen. Not sure it's a language issue or just poor training. Would return, but not anytime soon.

new renovations look great. Seating is comfortable and great new barstools. Server was so accommodating in my request to change the sides. My Salmon was perfect, as was the drink. I took food home for family )chicken sandwich and buffalo sliders) and everyone was happy. A fun extra was the live music playing- one guy and s guitar. He made the experience even better. I'll be back often. Great bar scene also

We go early (5:00) and sit in the quiet section. To the left of the "stage" facing Mail street. You can have a conversation and enjoy the meal. The Waiter never came to see if we needed anything. We had to find him to get our check.

Group of 5 including 7 year old child. Happy hostess and waitress. Good service. Pleased with the new brighter color scheme. Wide selection from good pub standards to more healthier gourmet options. I had the Thai salmon with riced cauliflower and roasted zucchini. Was very happy with it. Prices reasonable.
