Excellent food and service. It was quite loud due to the beer. burger and bomber bus deal they had going on. It didn’t bother us too much and the server did apologize.

Food was really good! I found the server to not be too attentive but I think that’s just the ramifications of Covid and staffing.

Fantastic pub experience. And, thank you so much for prioritizing the safety of your staff and patrons by checking vaccination status, even when the province dropped the ball. We enjoyed our visit!

Overall, my experience at Fionn's was a positive one. During this one visit our server was friendly and courteous, but she missed a few things that kept the experience from being stellar.

The time between check-ins were fairly lengthy, and the rate/method in which removed some of the empty dishes was lacking. We had a wall of empty glasses yet she was reaching over them to get at empty plates, which seemed like a broken glass waiting to happen.

At the end of the night she also seemed to have trouble with math. I had a bill of $47 and I gave her $60, she came back 5 minutes later flustered that she can't find 2 tens, which confused me.

I still gave a $5 tip, but the experience was a little weird

At the end, my friends and I had a good time, with a good meal and nice ambience.

This was my second time visiting. The service was friendly and helpful. Not a long wait for the food. All 3 of is loved what we had (we each had something different) and the drinks were great too. My daughter had strawberry rhubarb lemonade and I had strawberry rhubarb sparkling water. It tasted like liquid apple pie. I would definitely go again and try something different next time.

As of Monday September 21st we have implemented a mandatory mask policy for all staff, front and back of house as a result of guest feedback as well as concern due to the rising covid cases in our city.

Strange times as obviously less ppl are going out.
Service was excellent, and it was very clean, two of my top concerns rn. My salad was average, I have been to higher end restaurants with better salads for the same price.

This was our first time here. The service was excellent. We are on the patio. There was noise from the tragic but there's nothing that can be done about that. It was clean and we were seated a great distance from other patrons which I really appreciated. The food was sooooo good. I had the shepherds pie and would recommend it. Overall a great first impression and experience. I would highly recommend this place.

Unfortunately we found a hair in our App but they were quick to have another made and discounted it by 50% so good customer service in that sense. However our drinks ran dry and were not refilled, we had to ask for refills, she took our cutlery and never brought us new ones till we asked again. So in that sense it was bad service. Finally as most places have done during covid the portions have shrunk while the prices remain the same. We used to love this place because the portions were worth the $$ but unfortunately right now it is not. Hopefully it will resume the old normal soon.

My mom and I came for dinner. We ordered the calamari, which I have to say was absolutely wonderful. Tender and well seasoned. We have eaten calamari alot over the years, and Fionn's ranks as the best now. I had the chicken curry and my mom had the chicken power bowl. Both items we very tasty and filling. Service was informative and quite friendly. Definitely a place we will come back to.

Service was excellent !! The French Onion soup , to me , is the best in the city. Fish and chips (hubby and i always share a two piece dinner, as the servings are pretty big) was as good as it always is. Was very satisfied and a little bit full when we left . It was our way of celebrating Valentine's and it was a very nice time . thank you

Fionn McCool's at the Crossroads recently re-opened after having being closed for several months, and we were looking forward to again enjoying the tasty meal options. The appealing layout was much like it had been before the extended closing with many resemblances to an Irish pub, and we were greeted warmly. While our server was friendly and knowledgeable, the service was extremely slow, both in terms of taking our orders and the delivery of drinks and food. We were disappointed that there was not a greater selection of Irish beers on the liquor menu, and one imported beer that was listed was not yet available. The quality of the food was variable. The chicken pot pie and house salad was very good. The salad ingredients were varied and fresh, while the chicken pot pie was flavourful and the serving was quite ample. A side of a cup of chowder was similarly very tasty. An order of fish and chips, however, featured a small piece of fish that was overcooked to the point of being flavourless, and another dish of chicken and vegetables was barely warm. It took so long to receive these items that we were reluctant to have them sent back and risk another extended wait. It appeared that the slow service may have been the result of understaffing. I would want to be assured that these issues were addressed before again eating at this Fionn McCool's restaurant.

I went to this restaurant on a Wednesday at 1130 a.m. The 3 of us were the only people in the place. Our order of 3 French Onion Soup took longer than 20 minutes to arrive. There was more spinach and artichoke dip than chips. When my sandwich and salad arrived, I was not finished my soup. I had to get back to work so I had the server pack up my sandwich and salad to take out. The price of the meal was expensive. The restaurant honored my free appetizer coupon.
