We came for an early dinner. We were seated promptly and sat outside which was along river walk. That is fascinating in itself. Nice river views and you could relax watching bustle of city. Server came quickly, easily explained one of the appetizers, the Scotch Egg, which was tasty and brought our drinks. I had the lamb shank which was... More

Stopped in for a lunch and it was excellent. Actually went back the next night with a group of us and the service was great even when busy. Can't remember the gentleman's name but he served us lunch and then dinner later. Fun place for some Irish music and good beers.

In Jacksonville for business and stayed at the Hyatt Regency Riverside. Fionn MacCool's is a short walk from the Hotel in a shop and restaurant complex that features a river view. FM is kind of the hub of the place. A definite Irish-American vibe. Live music in the evenings. Good beer selection (featuring Guinness, of course), wide variety or Irish... More

We had previously eaten at this restaurant a few years ago and the food quality was better but it was still nice to come back and have our meal - the nachos and guinness burger. The nacho portion seemed smaller and the burger was a little overdone but overall not bad. We probably won't come back but it's a nice... More

Thank you so much for coming in and for taking the time to review us. We are a family restaurant and try very hard to maintain high standards. We are going through some growing pains in the kitchen and obviously training new staff has its kinks. Please consider stopping in when you visit Jacksonville again. Sláinte! More

The pretzels are amazing! Beer cheese is delicious. You get beer cheese dip, chocolate dip and poppy seed mustard dip. The beer cheese was the best, but you don't even need dip. The preztels are soft and delicious by themselves. I also had the lamb. It was so tender and good. By the end of dinner, i could hardly walk... More

Stopped by on our way back to our hotel and enjoyed a couple of drinks and a hot pretzel. Sat at the bar so can't speak for the table service but our service at the bar was excellent and customers didn't seem to be waiting too long to be seated.

The decor was very authentic Irish Pub. The location is right on the river so very nice views. The food was so close to actually being in Ireland. We tried the Scottish Egg, and it was wonderful. We had the Shepherds Pie, and the served completely different but so good. Other dishes we had were the Irish Breakfast, Chicken Pot... More

Since we were going to the Riverdance show, we thought it was fitting to go eat at an Irish pub. Ordered the cod sandwich. It didn't have flavor and it was dry. Husband ordered grilled chicken sandwich and he said it was dry too. Desserts were good.

We appreciate your business! Thank you for stopping in before Riverdance. It does not sound like we had our A-game on that night and we apologize. We have a strong kitchen staff and normally get great feedback on our food, but obviously missed the mark on your visit. We hope you will stop by again the next time you are... More

Good service and friendly wait staff. The food and atmosphere are what you would expect, nothing stellar. But downtown Jacksonville is a food and beverage desert and if you are in downtown without wheels, this is the place.
