Established in 1984., Finn Maccool's has been recently renovated and transformed from what was an Irish public house restaurant To what feels more of an upscale Hamptons type atmosphere. The restaurant and bar once decorated in a typical dark manor has been replaced with a light interior, stylish light fixtures, white granite stone U-Shaped bar, and plush seating. The bar is wrapped with bar stools and plenty of high top seating and booths. The main dining area has also been updated with bright fabrics and Celtic artwork.

Finn Maccool's has an extensive menu comprising of a diverse range of burgers & sandwiches, pizzas, appetizers, and salads. The newly designed bar offers a variety of draft beers, featuring 5 from right here on Long Island. The happy hour spans from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Loved the decor! We shared the calamari appetizer which was one of the best We have ever had. Both had the pot roast with red cabbage which had the most delicious gravy! We will definitely return!

Lively gathering place in the middle of Port Washington. This restaurant does moderately-priced food well! The burgers are exceptional and the wide selection of dishes means there is something for everyone. Service is prompt and efficient. Although there was plenty of activity (all the tables and the bar area were filled on my most recent visit), the noise level never interfered with conversation. A cool jazz saxophone (on Saturdays only?) added to the vibe. A great choice for enjoying "just dinner" or before a show at the Landmark Theater, right across the street.

I ordered a menu item of ribeye steak with green clili rice, spinach and salsa verde. Steak and spinach were fine, i was served plain rice and some other red salsa. I asked the waiter why my dinner was slightly different. He wasn’t aware of the details of the dish. But he went back to the kitchen to inquire.

The chef stated that the green chilis were in the salsa not the rice. I’m not fluent in Spanish or Italian, but Verde means Green. Not sure why I got a tomato based res salsa.

I felt like I got a BS excuse and the staff wanted me to eat and go. To the restaurant management I ask that do not use bus boys as waiters. It demeans the restaurant and truly good waiters.

The waiter took to long to check in with us and didn't come back for long spans of time. we were ready to order and had to ask for him to be found. Usually, I have had good service so it was disappointing.

First and probably last visit unfortunately, overpriced, incorrectly prepared burgers, calamari appetizer was rubbery. Website advertised multiple local beers, waiter said no, only one. Def. Not worthy of the $100 bill for family of 4.

Great place to meet friends and family. Recently renovated. Irish pub for grown-ups. Good food. Great value. Got the seared ahi tuna appetizer, very good. Fish and chips also good, although my friends version seemed a bit off. Can’t go wrong with a hamburger or Sheppard’s Pie. Salmon and branzino also good.

Easter dinner which should have been a nice night out but was ruined by this Terrible experience. The restaurant was not crowded yet they put us in a room with a large party going on. They then moved us to a small crowded table. We finally got moved to a booth where we were completely ignored for over 20 minutes. The waitstaff were busy talking in the back by the kitchen and not waiting on the customers. We got up because we had enough of this nonsense and as we were leaving the hostess asked if we enjoyed our meal. Seriously the water was delicious. They made no attempt to apologize or at least acknowledge they dropped the ball. Very disappointed not the place it used to be. We ended up at Louie’s and had great service and a fantastic meal.

The food and service at Finn McCool's was excellent. Not outstanding but excellent! The service was a little slow but it was a busy time so that was to be expected. I ordered the calamari appetizer which was really delicate and perfectly done. I also ordered the porterhouse pork chop ( which wasn't a porterhouse cut) what was none the less perfectly done. Not large portions but ample enough. It came with a small side of Brussel sprouts and roasted potatoes, again ample but not a large portion. All very well done. My fiance got the shrimp and capellini and was very tasty. That portion was okay as well. Another friend of mine got the shepherd's pie which according to her was okay but not outstanding or anything special. All in all it still wasn't wonderful experience worth the four stars not the five. I would definitely go back.
