Dropped in here to watch some football and have some drinks and apps. The hostess said to have a look around as we were unsure if the patio would be warm enough to sit out at. It was and we came back and told her we would sit out there so she said to go ahead. Well the server out... More

Food was freezing cold. Waitress was great. I wouldn't ever eat here again. The place was completely empty. Tons of kitchen staff. Surprised they sent out cold entrees.

Fun, relaxed atmosphere.The service is great but the food is fairly average. Not bad, but nothing particularly great. Could definitely use some improvements, like most of the food at the Landing. On the plus side, they are open late. Full bar, with outdoor seating.

While we're really happy to hear our service hit the spot, we wish our food would've measured up more. We strive to impress our guests across the board here, so we apologize if we dropped the ball.

We have had BAD dining experiences at The Landing. We are still in SHOCK at how great the food was/is. We ordered the Irish Stew and the Ribeye Steak. Both were superb. I had eaten in Chicago at a 5 star steakhouse and paid 3 less in JAX for the same melt in the mouth steak. We will return.

Ate here while driving through Jacksonville. Restaurant sits on the water front with outdoor seating. Great location. Service was a bit slow but friendly. Fries came out cold but they quickly brought out more. Would probably look to eat somewhere else next time.

Inside you feel like you are in old Ireland with the décor and the music. Outside is a nice covered patio with views of the river. The Scotch Egg and Magner's Cider are the best!!

We have been to Ireland 14 times,and counting, this Finn MacCools is the real deal. The food selections, the friendly, very friendly staff and a preeminent location on the St. John's River with ample parking makes for an enjoyable meal and visit. Also came back the next day.

In Jacksonville to see the opposing team take on the Jaguars. MacCools is where the party was happening. Many fans as well as locals and other tourists.

It was Halloween night and most of the staff was in costume. Halloween music was playing. The bar was just what you would expect in an established Irish pub. There was excellent selection of beers, Irish whiskey and scotch. My wife had the batter fried shrimp, and I had the steak broxty (steak,onions, mushrooms and a whiskey reduction wrapped in... More

4 of us came together. Had boxty (corned beef & cabbage in a potato wrap), burger, and fish and chips. Boxty had a bit too much strong mustard on it, overwhelmed the rest. Fish & chips were tasty. Burger was not commented on. Enjoyed sitting outside under cover, and right on the river. Server was attentive. Price was quite fair.
