There is nothing that disappoints as much as after a hard eight hours working, taking that first drink of beer to find it barely cool, let alone anywhere near cold. I thought maybe that it was an exception but the next one wasn't any better....More

Been here many times, as my father really likes it. Pros: French fries served piping hot. Salads always fresh and flavourful. Sweet potato fries are awesome. They got pub-food classics down well. Service is quick and friendly. Booths are pretty separate from other customers and...More

My wife and I were here yesterday for lunch with friends from Guelph, Ontario. We had heard good things about this place and were not disappointed at all!!. Good food selection plus customer service were very evident. Very much a pub setting here.

Seated right away and a server was at my table within 30 seconds. Ordered at 544pm. The atmosphere in the dining section is rather quiet as I believe I'm here before the dinner rush on a Wednesday. Buttermilk-Breaded Chicken, hand-cut smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce,...More

Fionn MacCool's may have good beer on tap, I have no idea because I don't drink, and there certainly are a lot of taps on site.But boy, do I love to eat, and the food here left me gasping. It tasted like thawed frozen food...More

I recently went for lunch. The craft beer selection is better than similar chain restaurants, but the self pour station helps Fionn's to stand apart. The selection at the second floor beer station is enough to satisfy many craft beer drinkers with a good range...More
