The people working here are wonderful! The food is great, as well. This made my birthday meal a great time. Much better than the total lack of service we got at Borealis Grille and Bar!

Three of my co-workers and I went in for a drink after work on a Friday night. After waiting several minutes in an almost empty pub we were served but not made to feel welcome because they were expecting an influx of TMMC employees. Needless to say we had our pints and then left for the more welcoming Scottish pub... More

On a hot summer Friday evening, an Irish pub should be a bustling watering hole. Instead we found an empty, lackluster location. When 95% of the restaurant is empty why on earth is a group of 5 sat directly in front of the kitchen. Its not a matter of pretention, but we were constantly swatting away fruit flies coming from...

Met our friends who were coming from 2 different cities. Great location, just off the 401. Their salads are amazing and good variety of beer choices. We ate in the bar area, good service, and nice live music on schedule days.

Stopped here as it was the only restaurant of 3 in the area that was not crazy busy. Service was very slow. I had the chicken tikka curry. It was ok. Not made fresh to order, I guess it's just from a packet and reheated to warm. My husband had the steak pie that looked a little more hearty.

Fionn MacCools has a great selection of beers, from the big brands to local ones as well. If you don't find something you like on tap, the bottle and can selection extends even further. The food is great. Tried the shrimp fettuccine on the St. Patricks day menu. Awesome dish. If you're looking for cold beer and good food. This... More

Service was very slow... Like I mean slow! Apps were ok. Chicken sandwich overlooked. Boxty was drenched in sour cream. Waited at least 15 minutes for our bill. There were 3 other people in the restaurant. Will not come back.

I like this place. The beer is good and the service is excellent. I had shrimp and chips and they were really good. Service was good and prompt. Definitely will go there again.

Good place for a lunch sandwich. Mostly variations of chicken, but nevertheless good. Do one called the "flying pig". Bacon, chicken breast,back bacon in panoko crumbs, tomato and lettuce. Has BBQ sauce on the chicken but is overpowering. Better to leave it off or have it on the side. Tried the the pub pies but thought they were quite dry.

The first time I enjoyed lamb shank dinner was on a UK trip at an Irish pub. I was amazed. We tried Fionn MacCool's and I ordered the same. I was equally impressed and delighted. Welcoming atmosphere, professional service and amazing fare.
