My wife and I were here today at lunch time . We were seated and after exactly 15 minutes of being ignored we got up to leave. We told the hostess that we're were leaving because nobody greeted us or even took our drink order. The hostess did not say a word. I then asked for the manager and he... More

We have been to Finn McCool's restaurant on several occasions and this is the first time we ordered their specialty: beef boxty. Yes Beef Boxty. A boxty is a very large "tortilla like" potato pancake with either pork, beef, lamb, or chicken in the boxty. We selected beef. The meat is placed inside the tortillia and folded in half similar...

Wife and I went for the first time with a restaurant.com gift certificate and we are already planning our next time back!. Everything was perfect, from ambiance to waitstaff, from appetizers to desserts! We have been talking to all of our friends about it!

This is your typical bar/restaurant with typical bar food. It's not awful, but it's just average. It's a good place to watch a game/match.

Kildare nachos are always good, but order a half portion. Pretzel are also good. You cannot beat the fish and chips. Huge portion. Cider goes perfectly with the Irish fare. Be sure to come hungry. If the game is on, or the people are loud ask the hostess for a quiet table. They accommodate.

Finn McCools is very close to the amphitheater, which makes it a great place to stop for dinner before a concert. They have great Irish dishes, a few seafood dishes and great burgers. Service is usually decent, with inside and outside seating. The outdoor seating is covered, with a/c and heat to take the edge off of extreme temps. The... More

I stopped by to have a couple drinks and get an appetizer after work. I ordered the pierogies, and they were wonderful. The bartenders, Melissa and Christy were extremely friendly and the service was wonderful. It's really cool inside, and reminds me of being in a local pub in Ireland.

My wife and I visited Virginia Beach and had a coupon for a place called Finn McCool's. Not being from the area, we decided to try it out. We were SO GLAD we did! Excellent atmosphere, wonderful food, great staff, and bigger portions than you will probably be able to finish. We are already excited about our next trip to... More

My wife and I ate there on a Saturday around 5PM. We were seated immediately. The waitress was very friendly and helpful but also very busy. Unfortunately, we came on a night when the place was filled with Parrotheads who were going to a Jimmy Buffet concert later. They were very loud. This should have been a clue to leave.... More
