I’ll never go back. We were overcharged as a group of 4 25 dollars for breakfast. I quickly tapped for payment of our meals and saw the overcharges, I brought it to the waitresses attention she said there was nothing she could do about the...overcharge until her manager came in later that afternoon. We were on the road and had a schedule to follow. I can’t believe with a Restaurant had no way to correct those overcharges. Really disgusting.More

Just had the sweet potato fries (came with 2 yummy sauces) and the calamari. Was very tasty and would highly recommend this place.

Stopped her almost every day after the hills. A place where they know you after a visit or two and are always happy to see you again. Many great items on the menu but by far the best in my opinion are the Fish Tacos....I have these from Europe to the southern states, Finley's makes the best. Happy hour deals are to die for while you play a game of pool overlooking the river. Good people and great food, it what makes a great place.More

The food was good but I encountered a very rude server. All I got was a rude response for asking for something that wasn’t on the menu anymore. This particular server came off as standoffish towards me the whole time I kept wondering what I...did wrong & it honestly just ruined my whole day. Do better whatever your name was.More

We ate off the breakfast menu, traditional breakfast and eggs benedict were excellent. Our server, Alex, was attentive, friendly and considerate. Will be visiting again in the future.

Held a karaoke night during a pandemic. Hard to believe how dumb it was to do this. Pass that mic around and stay classy Finleys.

Paper straws suck! They ruin the drink. Save a tree! Give me back the plastic. If you are concerned about turtles go to china and make them use paper straws! We do our share of recycling! Really disappointed in Finleys!More

Visiting friends for Christmas and looking for a quick breakfast at a fast food place before stopping in to see them. It was around 8am and nothing was open. We saw an OPEN sign and dropped in hoping for the best. Very pleasantly surprised with...attentive friendly service and an excellent hot breakfast. Will be stopping in tomorrow before we start our drive home for another breakfast visit.More

So this is not so much of a food review but we did have breakfast and it was excellent, but listen to this! Being a very enthusiastic football/soccer fan and especially a Liverpool supporter I walked into Finley’s at 0800 in the morning and asked...them if they could play the game on one of their big screens. Now being in Canada where the English Premier league is as popular as Brussel sprouts with 8 year olds they obviously did not have that on any of their subscriptions but when I told them that today’s game was THE game what did they do? Well in short they paid for a subscription to the game and found it online and streamed it on their biggest screen! They laid out a special table and chairs as the big screen was above the pubs dance floor and served non stop coffee whilst Liverpool smashed Man City. Now this is going WELL above and beyond when it comes to customers service! Thank you guys for such outstanding hospitalityMore

We went here a couple of times during our visit. They have great calimari, hamburgers and fries. The salads are terrific too. We watched the womens soccor team and everyone was hooting and hollaring. We will be back on our next visit.

They have amazing views from the terrace. The perfect place to have a beer after a long day of hanging out and accomplishing very little.
