We were thrilled that our favorite pub finally reopened, and Heavy Rebel Weekender is crazy!! So there was a bit of issue with our food. The manager was AWESOME!! She was understanding and polite and professional. Finnegans remains our favorite downtown WS spot!!

Have eaten here twice now. It's pub food, buy very good. Corned Beef and Cabbage was really good. Others in my party loved their meals. A number of beers are on tap and more in bottles. The atmosphere is fun. Service was great.
