I've lived in the area for 5 years and had not tried Findleys. I'm glad we did today!! It was better than I could have hoped for, great service, good prices and the steak sandwich was top notch.

I ordered the fish tacos and they were simply terrible. There was practically no on in the place, the music was way too loud and overall the experience was so bad that I would NEVER willingly return.

I will never go back. After spending a decent amount of money (dinner, drinks, dessert) we were getting ready to pay and my kid got up from the table to dance on the empty dance floor. To be clear she was not being loud, just dancing. Quickly a wait staff came over to inform me that kids are allowed but... More

Finley's has always been my place to go when in need of a hangout with friends. It is a nice place to go for a good burger if you are in town. Servers are very friendly and always do their best to deliver a timely and friendly service. It is a favorite amongst most of the locals for casual get... More

The food here is fantastic! Everytime I have been here it was so good. The service has always been really friendly too. They have a decent selection of beers on draft, and the prices for food and drinks are reasonable. I would recommend this place to a frien!

You have to try the Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich with a salad for a side. The salad dressing that they have is awesome, then I tried the sandwich and was blown away. It was so delicious. I arrived in town later at night and couldn't find anything else open. Didn't have high expectations when I walked into the place. Aging decor,... More

Was here for a quick lunch with some friends. It is an average bar layout, 1 pool table and a stage. I ordered the 'Beat Burger..voted tastiest burger in Nelson' it was okay. It was one of those burgers with way to many toppings that when you eat it everything falls out. I give it 7/10. The best part of... More

We just happened to stop in here after our visit next door to Sage was a little too classy for us lol. Finley's was great. Great food for great prices and the drinks were yummy too! A good place to go if you just want to hang out with a couple friends and chat, watch the game or just meet... More

I'm not a huge fan of most bars, but my wife and I needed a late dinner, and we found Finley's. Pretty darn good. Clean. Comfortable. Good service. The classic poutine was excellent. The burgers were great. My drink was decent, her Moscow mule tasted a little watered down. The late night live entertainment was fine. I wasn't in the... More
