It's a bar - and we went there for lunch because they had 35 beers on tap. We were not disappointed in the selection - they had something for every taste. Pints of Rogue's Dead Guy Ale and Southern Tier 2XIPA were $6 and the...More

We've dined at Finn's several times since opening several weeks ago. It's a pub style atmosphere with many tvs to watch sports. Very clean & neat for a sports bar! Could tell the food was not that processed or frozen stuff found in neighboring restaurants....More

Fins is a new local eatery replacing the former Gillary's. It is more of a sports bar atmosphere with approximately 8 big screen TVs on the first floor with pool tables on the second. The staff is very friendly and pleasant. We have stopped in...More
