    Mickey Finn’s was amazing! We went there to see Pino Farina Band (the best band in the area hands down) and were pleasantly surprised by the staff, the ambiance and the menu! I expected bar food and had one of the best Ahi Tuna Sandwiches around! Liquor selection was very good as well! Our waiter, Doug, did a fantastic job. All around a great night!

    Good bar food and beers. Nice local bar/restaurant that caters to families and adults. Pizza is consistent and very good. Some of the sandwiches are really good. Philly so so. Burgers good. Their brewery beers are always good to try.

    While we normally experience great food, this experience left us wondering if the kitchen was inexperienced or overwhelmed. The spinach dip was super greasy with too much cheese and the teriyaki chicken has too much sauce making the rice and veggies soupy. We love Mickey Finn’s and will come back again because this was an isolated experience that we haven’t had before. The server was amazing per her usual.

    I had not been to MF for a while. Love the look of Mickey Finn’s newish place and its spaciousness. Nice bar atmosphere. Food was a little lower quality than I remembered. Fries were thin and dry, a little over cooked. Sandwich was good but more bread than meat and cheese. Happy hour is a good deal but needs more food options.

    Food was good however the cocktails were warm and the server seemingly forgot about our table. We rarely were checked on and many items were forgotten that we asked for, the side of ranch that we were charged for came after the food was already eaten. We would have had more drinks but she never came for us to order another round.

    Our only complaint is that the brisket sandwich was overly covered in bbq sauce and hardly any meat. Not good. Reuben was very good. Burgers were also very good. Had the pretzel appetizer and the cheese sauce was delicious, perfectly spiced. Service was excellent.

    The atmosphere, drinks and staff were great. The food though, could use some work. The menu description didn’t match up with what was delivered. And the quality for the price was poor. I’ve heard it from others too about the food and now agree. Should look into it!

    My friend said the service here was not good- and it was not good. Just keep that in mind. As a former waitress I rarely complain as I've been in those trenches. I don't know if they just assign to many tables to one person but it was extremely slow. And the steak tacos were bland.
