All tables in the dining room were occupied at 8 pm when I arrived. I found a seat at the bar which was lit with happy multicolor lights giving the bar area a warm and welcoming glow on a rainy night. The food was piping hot when served. There was a nice selection of appetizers, sandwiches, and light meals.

Finn's is a great Irish pub in Maine. Every year we go to Bar Harbor and for every visit to Maine we stop over at Finn's. The food, the people and the atmosphere are all great. We truly love it there.

We eat here all of the time and love it! There's usually a wait time because they are pretty busy but the food is worth the wait. Friendly staff mostly and the live music is nice when they have it, not too loud but set a nice atmosphere! Bathrooms could be a little cleaner but other than that, fantastic place!

Delicious food, pretty good variety too and reasonable prices. Friendly and efficient staff who are happy to push tables together for larger parties.This definitely has the typical pub atmosphere with noisy and tight quarters but it's also fun and family-friendly. I would highly recommend this place!

Small restaurant. Live music on occasion. Friendly prompt service. Food is usually good. Portions are large. Slightly expensive. Dessert are yummy. Bar is inside an old trolley car. We have been several times and will continue to go back.

A gem of a place -- and difficult to get into sometimes because it is so popular. Good service and excellent food. Quite a variety, too. Salads are great and the best corn beef around.

This was our first time in the restaurant. It has an assorted menu with Irish emphasis. I had a delicious, juicy hamburger and garlic mashed potatoes. Mmmmmm! My dare had the fish and chips. The fish serving was so big it needed its own zip code. Our waitress was friendly and accomodating.

Went to Finns on a Friday evening. Although it was busy, we were quickly seated and waited on. The food was good and the prices reasonable. Most entrees were between 12 and 20 dollars. Bottled wine was mostly between 20 and 25 dollars. Desserts were all $6.50. Like most places they don't put prices on the beer, which annoys me,... More

Both times we have eaten at Finn's it has been delightful. We did not have any trouble getting a table either this summer or in February, although we did go at slightly off peak times. Each cocktail was masterfully created, and the food is flavorful and at the appropriate temperature. Keep it up, we will be back!

Thank smanzi
