    Patti Finnegan’s is a great gem of a restaurant in Rochester! It has beautiful views overlooking the golf course, a great bar, and good selection of menu options. Our server, Ava, was very attentive and friendly. It’s a special place to enjoy with friends and family!

    I brought my friend from Canada who I have not seen since prior to the Pandemeic. She is an avid golfer and enjoyed the being seated with a view of the beautiful golf course. The wait staff was very attentive and easily accomadated us when we asked for the Michigan game to be turned on. We ordered the soup and sandwich combo. The quality was excellent and there was more then enough. Thank you for making our afternoon lunch so relaxing and enjoyable.

    The pub was hard to locate as the signs are not obviously placed but after asking we were told that it is the club house restaurant. Food was good for bar food. Was loud inside with happy golfers talking about their days.

    Service was terrible. The waitress had to be flagged down for everything. She was pleasant but not attentive. She actually said after we were there for 45 minutes the kitchen is so backed up you will be waiting a long time. They were out of many dishes. I had a crab cake which was all breading with little flavor. The expanded deck is beautiful but it will be empty if service and food is not improved.

    Our roasted pepper tomato basil soup was not good. Three of us ordered it. It was as thick as spaghetti sauce and tasted Burnt (not roasted). These things can happen. I did ask the waitress to inform the cook, so they will adjust the recipe. I love the setting, and I am not a golfer. I have eaten here at least 10 times. Very convenient location for lunch prior to Meadowbrook plays.

    Restaurant was fine but food was not good. Ordered the fish and chips based on the recommendation of the server. The fish was dry and the fries were over salty and overcooked. There was no vegetable.

    We got there around 7:30. They were telling people you have a few minutes to order. If that’s the case just don’t take reservations that “late”. Server was eventually pushed from our table to handle a bigger table to get their orders quicker. Timing of food became sporadic. Steak ordered very rare and came medium to medium well. I told our original server and said I would eat it. Manager came back by and asked if wanted a box I said no thanks and let him know it was over cooked so I ate what I wanted and was done. He did make an adjustment to our bill, didn’t ask for it and didn’t expect it so that was nice. We enjoyed our time but we’re hoping for better. Hopefully next time. 🙂

    We booked our reservation 45 minutes before the time slot. The host had to look up our reservation and told us we would have to immediately order because the kitchen was closing. The nachos were great. The grilled salmon blt was disappointing. The salmon was not good.

    Finnegan's has a menu that isn't all the normal things you would expect - they have perch sandwiches and lots of different things. I love the crab and shrimp cake sandwich. You look over at the golf course. So very nice. Good service.

    4 of us went out and each meal was outstanding. The bottle of wine was reasonably priced and a very good value. For whatever reason, I did not get a confirmation email from either the restaurant or OpenTable. In fact the restaurant did not have my reservation at all, luckily there was one table for 4 left for us.
