I had the Salmon Leek Pie which was delicious. The pastry was thick crust and flaky which is how I like it. It is a bit under salted but it was fine for me since I like it to be less salty.

Went with a group for a business lunch. Service was very good, prices were reasonable and the noise level was low. Most of us enjoyed our meals, but some meals were bland (stacked fish sandwich), one burger was over-cooked (lamb burger), and the shepard's pie was ok. Those who had the fish tacos were very happy, same with the chicken burger.

Booked a large group of 40 people. They offered us to do a pre order. Great idea! Our group only have an hour for lunch. Food was arrived on time and hot! All enjoyed their meals. Great value for the portion size. I reccomend the steak and arugula salad.

All staff were wonderful and answered every question we had. Food was great and the price for 4 people (including drinks) was a very pleasant surprise. We actually double checked because we thought something had been missed.

I booked reservations for 6 colleagues, and arrived just minutes before our 12:00 noon booking . We were promptly taken to our table, where we ordered our beverages and our food at the same time to avoid the lunch hour rush. At approximately 12:45, 4 of the 6 meals arrived to the table. At that time the waitress questioned what the other 2 meals were. Five minutes later she brought 1, barely warm, Steak & Mushroom Bowl, and informed me that you didn't have any mashed potatoes for the 'All Day Irish Breakfast" I had ordered 50 minutes earlier...and they're telling me this NOW. I ended up cancelling my order.
We only get 1 hour for our lunch break. Unfortunately, this was about the 3rd or 4th time that our lunch at Fionn MacCools took us over the 1 hour lunch break. It's not a great place to go, when you only have an hour!

Waited 20 minutes before someone finally came up to seat people. Group of 6 men left as they had been waiting even longer. I told the an who seated us that a group of 6 men left because they waited so long and he said. "It happens". I had put down business meal as a request but because we were two women, he was going to seat us in a busy square table right in the middle. I said we needed a spot away and he did seat us in a separate section by the door which was nice and quiet. Had to flag down someone 15 minutes later to get any service. Sides were wrong but we just left it as we wanted to eat.
Too bad because I like the food but won't be returning because of such poor service.

There were 9 our party. The meals came out fairly far apart so they waited till everyone got their meal and then their food was cold. Also the soup was cold by the time it got to people.

So sorry about that! Ideally, we bring all your meals out at the same time. Hopefully your server was able to correct the cold soup.

Booked for two before the Oiler's game and gave ourselves 1 1/2 hrs just in case. Good thing, because that's what it took. Granted that there were a couple of large tables, but two other tables ordered after us and were served before us. The one guy behind us was served in less than 15 minutes, so the kitchen is busy doesn't cut it. At least the food was hot when it did arrive.

I love there food here! The fish and chips is so delicious and are a good portion size for the money spent. I do not suggest relying on there website for closing times and details about the venue. The reason is that the site says it opens till 1am Friday however the server rushed me and friends out at 1130pm. The server told us they are closing and said it was based on business levels. Also no live band was playing as indicated on website as they must have trivia night instead and didn’t update the website.

Took 90 minutes for our party to get our food. We were a party of 17 that had made reservations. They brought the first persons food out 10 minites before anyone else's. The others slowly trickled out. The last person never did get the order before we had to leave. Everyone's salad was wilted and bitter. They did apologoze and give us 50% off each of our bills but I won't go back.

Our sincere apologies for your experience LisaP. I know you were on a tight timeline with Teachers Convention and we should have been more ready for the extremely busy day. We had hundreds of people to please that day and unfortunately with your group, we let you down. Next time you are in town for teacher's convention, if you want to give us a second chance, I would be glad to make that happen! Regards, Mat

Went there for the Justin Timberlake concert, we had just missed happy hour. However, there was still drink specials that we had! The food came out hot. Hot n' fast! And we even had time to take in the pubs stumpers before leaving to our concert.
Staff were attentive, and all smiles! Great place!

We went to this restaurant because we were heading to the theatre next door. We were there more than 1.5hrs before our movie and barely made it to the theatre on time.

Service was very, very slow!

AMA had a deal, where when we showed our membership card, we would get a free pot pie dish. Beer was good , ambiance nice, reasonably quiet so we could visit. Pot pies were better than average, but price was certainly right. Went to a movie after, so a nice night out.

Nice Irish-style pub in downtown Edmonton (City Centre West mall). Good drink specials, wonderful if you are headed to an Oiler's game or concert at nearby Roger's Place.

Food - steak sandwich was good, but plate was loaded with rubbery broccolini and leathery fries. The salmon dish came overcooked and the replacement was passable.

Handy location for a bite and beverage before heading to the hockey game. Their server was very polite and attentive. The food was decent pub food. They had a live singer on Friday night at 5:00 to add to the atmosphere.

The food was good and the service was great but there was a incident when a rude customer was giving the waiter a hard time .i was a little shocked the waiter went off on the customer and made a scene in the restaurant.could have been handled better and had to hear the waiter boosting about how he went off on the customer. No manager to be found just not well handled. Waiter called for security and should have let them handle it. Waiter made himself and the establishment look pretty bad.will not go back.
