I spent $30 on a burger and cider. Was it good? It was ok. Why was it $30? At a pub? I don't know. I won't be back.

I wouldn't go out of my way to go here unless I lived nearby or was staying at the hotel a few blocks away. Interior is cold, backless chairs are very uncomfortable. Service was slow even though there were few people there. Food was SO typical and uninspiring. This is a pub in name only, it's a chain and not... More

Went last night for a quick dinner. Ordered the calamari, it came out undercooked, fishy and old batter. It was just terrible. Then tried the chicken curry, dried out rice, cold food. Friend had fish and chips, she didn't eat it. We left as soon as possible. Very kind new manager (5 days) was super nice and apologized for the... More

After having been to Winooski's over and over again, needed a change of venue. Showed up at Fionn's after dinner at Borealis. Nothing says pub like an Irish pub. I've been to quite a few of their various branded pubs and overall they are all A-OK. Nothing special to expect from this one over the ones in the GTA. They... More

Do not order the fish tacos. They were the biggest ripoff and one of the worst tasting meals we have had. One small piece of greasy, breaded chicken was rolled in a stale flour tortilla with a slop of sauce and maybe a few strips of cabbage. The nachos on the side were few and stale. It was at most...

The people working here are wonderful! The food is great, as well. This made my birthday meal a great time. Much better than the total lack of service we got at Borealis Grille and Bar!

Three of my co-workers and I went in for a drink after work on a Friday night. After waiting several minutes in an almost empty pub we were served but not made to feel welcome because they were expecting an influx of TMMC employees. Needless to say we had our pints and then left for the more welcoming Scottish pub... More

On a hot summer Friday evening, an Irish pub should be a bustling watering hole. Instead we found an empty, lackluster location. When 95% of the restaurant is empty why on earth is a group of 5 sat directly in front of the kitchen. Its not a matter of pretention, but we were constantly swatting away fruit flies coming from...
