My fiance and I ate dinner at Finnigans and it was really good. I had the Buffalo chicken breast and Mac & Cheese while my fiance had their burger and steak fries. That chicken breast was well worth the $10 it's was big piece and cooked so well. My server was nice. We sat on the back patio and enjoyed... More

Finnigan's accommodated us on very short notice on a busy Saturday night. Food was incredible and the service was amazingly fast for as many people as there were in the restaurant. I think everyone at our table had a different meal and they all came out at the same time, hot fresh and delicious. Highly recommend the lamb burger. Very... More

Great little pub, noisy, good food and drinks! It really does remind me of some of the pubs I had visited in England. If you want to have a fun night out this would be a great place to go!

Ate here for St. Patty's; my first Sat. Patty's in Winston... it was absolutely packed but still only waited less than 1/2 hr for a table. I had corned beef and cabbage and it was fantastic. My son had the Lambert burger and said it is the best burger he has had in years (and that's saying a lot!).... This... More

My husband and I stopped by on a trip to Winston. He had never been to the "Arts District " before and I was showing him around the area, I told him about how nice Finnigan's is. The atmosphere is nice and I love the scenery. My husband loved the local beer and I enjoyed the alcoholic coffee beverages. If... More

We arrived a bit early for dinner - about 5:30 so had no problem being seated and waited on right away. We both ordered the Milk Chocolate Stout after trying a few different 'samples'. Dinner choices were very typical Irish pub fare....Fish and Chips for me and Corned Beef and Cabbage for my friend. Both dinners very ample servings and... More
