Finnegan's Bar and Grill reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Finnegan's Bar and Grill, a table service restaurant in New York at Universal Studios Florida.
Written by Robert Niles
A table-service Irish pub, serving Guinness beef stew, corned beef, and fish 'n' chips, along with a bar selections, featuring popular Irish beers. Though it's billed as as bar, it's family-friendly restaurant, too, with a children's menu available.
Beautiful decor & location. Restaurant menu is interesting and food quality is commendable. Also, it is a premier drinking establishment. Plus, some excellent Irish musicians create a very authentic atmosphere. Great place for adults to get away from the masses of screaming young kids that frequent most of the other park dining except for Lombard's. - Rob Pastor
Our family, 4 adults, ate at this restaurant in early May. We didn't wait too long for a table but felt that they've crammed a lot of tables into the space. Our waitress seemed very stressed and tired. The staff really didn't seem like they enjoyed their jobs very much. I would also caution parents with impressionable children that they may want to avoid this place. There were a number of tables full of 20-something drunks. And the staff continued to serve them alcohol, even after there had been 2 altercations and 5 broken glasses. We would never go back to this restaurant. - Leanne Bowen
This is our favorite spot when we are at Universal. The bartenders are very good,friendly and quick. My husband usually gets beer, but my favorite beverage there is the Pot of Gold coffee drink. This is our "go to" place every St Patrick's Day... it's a new tradition! The Shepherd's pie is good, as are the Fish and Chips. - Michelle Morgan
Different menu with plenty of offerings, also good theming work, and even TVs to watch the games happening! Got the fish and chips. They were nice and crispy and the tartar sauce had a nice flavor to it. - Will Sullivan
Great place to rest up with a cold one before taking on the rest of the park. Food good, good entertainment and TV's to catch up on the games you are missing. Can get crowded in the bar - Doug Jenkins
