The food was good as always. However, despite the $4 increase per food item in the last few months, we noticed, the fish and chips 2 piece dinner on Wednesday, was noticeably smaller portions, from eating there two weeks ago. 2 portion pieces of fish...actually more like 1 and 1/2 pieces, plus thinner than two weeks ago. Amount of fries also reduced. Caesar salad about 1/3 less than two weeks ago. Needless to say, it will be a long time, before we come back to this restaurant. I guess we will go back to Paul’s Pizza. Food always good there.More

We had planned to eat here but were unable as they don’t allow mall childrens strollers in the restaurant. If tables are available on the deck they’ll let you sit and put your cart outside the railing (in the mall). So we walked next door...to Boston pizza and they had no issue with the strollers and there were already a few there. Apparently this business doesn’t know what family friendly is and doesn’t miss the business from families.More

Our beer battered cauliflower was over cooked with no beer batter at all. It was just cooked cauliflower with a side of hot sauce. Super disappointed. I let the manager know but to date received no reply. Not ever going back.

Come here for happy hour and get some great snacks. Pretzels were really good just wish it had a cheese sauce. But the cheddies were to die for. So good. Get them.

This was soooo good! Had the Steak and Mushroom Bowl. Great flavours and great price. Service was attentive and friendly. I eventually will work my way through the menu. Missed happy hour that has some good special. Overall a great experience. Will be back.

After a very poor experience in the winter, management contacted me and we did return in July for lunch on the patio. The service was excellent by Marie Claire and the food very good. I am glad we gave it another try! We will be...happy to return again.More

I have eaten at this establishment once or twice in the past and the food is pretty well consistently good. The service is generally decent enough, but it hasn't typically been too busy when we have been there either. This time the service was quick,...very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere in the dining area is pleasant, though the bar area is normally too noisy for us and we opt for a booth which is generally quieter.More

Met friends who were travelling through Calgary. We had a mixture of appies and meals. Calamari, fish tacos, Guiness steak and mushroom pie, shepherd's pie and caesar salads. All were delicious and the service was quick and efficient!

After movie dinner - worst waiter ever. Asked for the special - had no idea what that was - steak and shrimp,*clue* on the big sign at your front door. Asked what came with it - ah, um, ah, well, ah, some broccolini. I think....Never asked what kind of potato - so one would assume mashed, at least, with a steak - in an Irish pub - nope. French Fries - with steak and shrimp. And no broccolini - broccoli and carrots. Steak was good and prepared well. Never got asked for another drink order, or coffee after the meal. He passed by once while eating and asked if all good - never saw him again until the bill - which also got screwed up. Would not be my first choice next time at the mall.More

Love the Irish Pub atmosphere. The staff really professional and attentive and the food was delicious! I had the steak and mushroom bowl that didn't come in an actual bowl but in a yorkshire pudding bowl. It was Fabulous!

The beautiful weather made us desire to sit on an outdoor patio for a brunch style meal. We decide on Fionn MacCool's . We have had bad experiences in the past but wanted to enjoy the sun on a patio. We enjoyed our visit, Brianne...was a very fluid server, keeping six tables balanced and happy. My wife and I asked for her recommendation with food choices and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed our appointed dishes. Everything was just as we had asked.More
