    Had the spicy maple burger - good mix of spicy and sweet. The cheesecake was delicious for dessert! Solid pub menu, good atmosphere, food and service.

    Didn’t like the Fionn’s burger. I asked for no pickles- got pickles and the burger was burnt. Liked the drinks though.

    My family and I attended for my birthday dinner. The restaurant was practically empty and yet we had to wait some time for service. After our waitress arrived we ordered appetizers and drinks, and the drinks were not brought for 15 minutes, and when they were brought, one was missing (we were only a party of 6). We had no cutlery, and waited an additional 20 minutes before anyone returned to offer us a refill. Again, the refills were not all brought properly. Then we had to wait again for our appetizers (we had already placed our dinner order by now). When the appetizers arrived we still had no cutlery or plates for eating/sharing, and despite asking multiple staff (including our waitress), we never received them. The empty used glasses from our crust drinks were not removed from the table, and it was obvious there was an infestation of fruit flies in the restaurant that were very bothersome to our meal. When our food finally arrived (over an hour after ordering), the food was cold and each meal arrived 5-10 minutes apart, so that one of our party was only being served 30 minutes after others had received there already cold meals (and begun eating out of necessity). Some of the order was also incorrect. It was very unfortunate ate that we had such an unpleasant dining experience. Although our waitress was apologetic she did not offer any compensation or options to address the many shortcomings. We had even advised in advance that we were coming for a birthday and there was absolutely no special treatment or offers. We will NEVER eat at Fiona McCools again, there are many other restaurants out there and in our experience, none have ever been as bad in almost every regard as this one.

    The food and service were very good. Lots of choices as far as sitting in the shade or sun. We moved from under the eaves as the music was too loud for our taste.

    It is a good place to go for a pint and a snack - had a band on that was good although way too loud. Had to move outside if you wanted to talk.

    For a business-type lunch a quieter venue was needed and Fionn MacCool's fit the bill. Other than a wobbly table leg, the meal and atmosphere was perfect.

    Fionn's has a limited menu and on this day had to settle for my 4th choice of draft beer because the first 3 were sold out (this was 2 days after St. Patrick's day - the local University crowd drained the place i guess). Well, they also ate out the kitchen as well since i was later told that the steak i ordered was also not available. So.. how about a burger then? That they had - yay! This location really needs a facelift (even before Covid).

    Table was sticky/dirty, our glasses and personal items stuck to it. Server spent minimal time at our table and was short with answers - it appeared she didn't care to be there. Bathroom was disgustingly filthy. We've been several times before but this made us upset and couldn't wait to leave.

    The ambience of this place is great. The staff are very friendly and Covid protocols were well followed. Best Caesar salad I've ever eaten so I'm sure the rest of the food is as well. I will definitely return when things ease up.

    Great food and great value. My wife had to send her meal back after it came with cheese, despite it being ordered without as she had a lactose allergy. This meant we sat for 50 minutes before she could eat, but these things happen and management more than compensated is for it. We will definitely be back again.

    Date night with hubby before heading to Riot Axe.. Service was great, food was just the perfect amount (not a whole bag of fries in your plate lol), kitchen was pretty fast! Drinks are a little pricy, but it won’t stop us from going back! We absolutely loved it.

    The staff was amazing, provided exceptional services, super friendly and accommodating. The food- oh goodness, it was awful to be polite. The nachos were cold and gross; we ordered a burger which was cold and gross; the steak and mushroom Guinness dish was like eating a salt lick; however the deep fried pickles were great! We would not go back- ever.
