Chicken Caesar Salad*
Crisp romaine tossed in a creamy garlic dressing and topped with Parmesan cheese, bacon, croutons and a grilled chicken breast
Signature Blarney Chips
Waffle-cut fries smothered in kick'd up cheese sauce, topped with diced tomatoes, green onions and jalapeño peppers. Served with salsa and sour cream. (Cals per serving)
Thick, hand-cut calamari dusted and tossed in salt and pepper. Served with a sweet chili sauce. (Cals per serving)
Upon arriving there was no one at the entrance and we had to wait for a good 5 minutes while looking around at the waiters to sit us down at our table (we had a reservation). The tables were clearly not wiped down in between customers and it took longer than acceptable to bring us our drinks and appetizers. So everything we ordered kind of arrived together and we barely enjoyed the appetizers especially considering a bunch of the stuff I had ordered to be added was missing. The steak was supposed to be medium not medium rare, I had to chew more than I was comfortable and I just gave up halfway through. The sides to that steak were fries and broccoli. The fries were ok nothing to complain about but seriously the broccoli was heinous. Raw without anything being done to it. Definitely not worth $18 for that tiny undercooked steak.
Our waitress was disorganized and inattentive. We had to ask for water and even for cutlery. The Blarney Chips were yummy but we had to lift them with our fingers, really! Enjoyed my Fish Tacos but the Caesar Salad was limp and hardly had any dressing…not appetizing at all
good food options, including vegetarian/vegan. Nice drink menu.
Always a special occasion when we bring my grandmother here and always stellar service, thanks Fionn McCools! ❤️
As always, Fionn's was excellent...you always get exactly what you want, no surprises!
Amazing staff and amazing food!
Excellent staff and service! We had some crazy weather and staff was amazing - thank you!
I would not recommend this patio to anyone. It took a very long time to get seated, or even greeted. It was very understaffed with only one waitress and two runners on a Saturday afternoon. I ordered a sangria which was so disgusting I returned it. My friend ordered a cheeseburger which arrived black and burnt. Overall would not return again.
Servers were friendly and they had a good selection of drinks
Better menu selection, e.g. more vegetarian options and sugarless desserts would be nice.
Food was extremely dried out. Had to send our appetizer back to be remade and our meals were of the same cooking quality. Haven’t been here in many years, and won’t be planning to return. Hope these problems were just a matter of getting back into a routine after the Covid lockdown situation otherwise business will be lost to other restaurants in the area.
Staff as great and very friendly. We will be back again!
So nice to eat out on a patio again and enjoyed the experience.
Of course based on patio and location, you hear traffic. Re value for the money...well, if you book here, you need to expect the prices are a wee bit greater than you expect. But, presentation of food excellent. It was delicious. Wait staff went over and above. The patio was great. Just my table and one other table with people. Loved that I could reserve a table for lunch. Many restaurants I called, I could not. I will definitely go back.
Great friendly staff. Excellent food. Good times. Would go back.
We had fun on the patio in a shaded area. Server was attentive friendly . Food was good
Didn’t love the tables in the parking lot, but completely understand due to the circumstances of outdoor dining and am very glad to have been served!
Our table was right next to the parking lot so we didn’t have the ambience I would have liked. Other than that a very enjoyable meal.
We were taken in quickly, drinks came fast, food was quick and delicious. There was the right amount of tree cover on the back side of the patio that allowed for some sun but not to much at 530 at night for us.
Food was fantastic.
Beer selection had plenty of locals and choices.
Great aervice, great food and great set up. Would love to go at night and see the patio lights
We were seated quickly and manager provided us with shade when requested. Food and service was excellent. Highly recommend the calamari
First shift after back open! Can’t imagine the staffing challenges they are having. Service was great, food excellent as always! Obviously training a lot of new staff but everyone was friendly and we were all happy to be back on a patio!!!!
The service was amazing, the food and the drinks were great!
Server was very friendly. It was busy but not very loud at all.
Service was quick and friendly. My meal was great; warm and tasty. However my wife's burger was a little raw in the centre and her cauliflower appetizer was on the cold side. Otherwise, everything else was great.
Service was friendly and quick, the young lady who served us was fantastic.
I had a reservation for indoor seating because it was supposed to be cold. When we arrived, they told us we had to wait to be seated inside. After a while of waiting, we were told we could sit outside and start ordering, and they would bring us indoors as soon as a table opened up. They sat us at a table far away from a heater, and promised to move us to the heater as soon as that table opened up. Two of those tables opened up within 10 minutes, and they instead moved people that had arrived after us into the heated area. By the time we got our food, my hands were so cold that I could barely pick it up to eat, and the food quickly became too cold to enjoy. Although we continued to ask about being moved somewhere warmer, no one ever did anything about it. After we asked for our bill, they brought a heater over to the table next to us, so clearly they had the option to make us at least a little more comfortable but we were not a priority. Besides the cold, parts of my meal were wrong and we were never offered another drink or more food. If I make a reservation, I expect there to be a spot reserved for me or at least tell me straight up that you won’t be able to accommodate me. I would not have agreed to sit outside if I had known I would be spending the duration of my meal there and I would have preferred to go home. It was not worth my time or money.
Experience was excellent considering the circumstances. Staff were very pleasant, food was hot and very good, over All no complaints.
Great first post lockdown meal
Great to be back! Amazing service and food as always. Cudos to everyone there!
Good food, great service and good value. I will for sure be going back.
No vegan options other than a Lightlife patty and lettuce ... really need to step up the vegan options. It’s not hard to source bread/buns with no sad ingredients.
Everything was very good.
I was offer a free appetizer on line early in the day and made a staff member aware and did not receive the free appetizer.
Server was lovely (personality), but terrible. It took what seemed like FOREVER...
Food was awful, overcooked and very little considering the cost. (i.e. I had a Rueben and the meat was hard like beef jerky and was barely there). I have also had a Rueben at State & Main, and it was like comparing apples to oranges - State & Main was far, far superior.
Will not return to Fionn MacCool's.
Good food, great service. Nice fettuccine Alfredo and great spinach and artichoke dip that the whole family enjoyed.
Our waiter Scott was outstanding. The fish and chips were delicious and well presented
Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. We were seated quickly. Food and drinks came at an acceptable speed. The atmosphere was good.
It's always a great experience there. Food is good, staff is friendly and a great ambiance.
