Fionn MacCool's - Bowmanville
Celebrating New Year as a family.
It was quite which was nice, the server was friendly enough.
The quality of the food was only fair, the steak was not cooked as asked , the fries where cold.
We also had shepherds pie which looked and tasted as if it had been under lights for hours. Considering the restaurant was not busy I would have expected hot fresh food.
Wellllllll I made a reservation and tricked my family down there to find out they decided last minute to close at 6pm. The very time I made the reservation actually. With just a little sign on the door. Not happy and as my kids were excited to go there. A heads up would of been nice but nothing. Just a little sign on the door with no explanation. I guess I'm never going back there again. I mean if you take a reservation then comply with it. And if not let the customer know before they drive 30min to be disappointed.
New Year’s Eve
The food especially the mini yorkies were outstanding and the Guinness bowl fantastic. Service was excellent, however it was New Year's eve and the live entertainment was horrible. Female vocalist was loud and to be polite terrible. Always enjoy the food, but on this occasion you had to shout to the people you were with as the sound was unbearable
Very quiet Thursday. Waitress very attentive. Food and craft beer very good.
Love the menu choices they have here. Staff are always happy to see you & go the extra mile. Will have no hesitation of dining here often :)
Always enjoy dining here. It’s very local to us & the staff are always friendly & on hand should you require any assistance.
There were a lot of fruit flys but that is norm for this time of year.
Great meal as always with a lovely ambience.
Music in early evening too loud, calm it down til 9:00, more fir the drinking and listening crew.
Our server was great! There were only 2 servers for our area as staff had caked in sick. This didn’t effect the service at all so thank you.
Excellent service, food not so much.
Food was good, service was good and overall good experience. Not really a "pub' atmosphere but the wide open format seems to be consistent with all restaurant chains now.
Great staff, good food but the noise level was very high. That is the only thing that may keep us from returning.
Each time we go to Fionns they are out of something on their menu. The gluten free bun served to my daughter was very stale. It was replaced and the replacement bun was much better. The food is overpriced for the quality. This was our second consecutive unfavourable experience, we will not be returning.
Food and service was excellent.
I ordered corned beef and cabbage The cabbage was just big hunk and raw I could not eat it THe cabbage could not be cut with a knife THe waitress was nice but the food was awful The manager came over and just made excuses. Did not offer to correct the problem or offer a discount
First time and certainly will not be the last. The two can dine for $50. is awesome with a good selection of main dinners. The Mini Yorkies are out of this world and could dine on them all night. Highly recommend this establishment.
Solid food and food selection, good service, and appropriate pub ambience.
My wife and I had a very nice visit. Fish and chips are very good.
Unfortunately staff left me standing there for quite a while & served people that caME after me with NO reservation. Improvements need to be made on acknowledging waiting to be seen/newly arrived customers rather than this area of service appear disjointed.
Other than that the food was good & I would dine here again.
We felt that it took to long to have a waitress attend our table, just to place a drink order and appetizers. The restaurant was not busy. They were not set up to receive gift cards. The food was good.
Very impressed with the food. Was expecting the standard chain restaurant type of bar food so my husband and I were very surprised by the quality of our meals. Onion rings were fantastic and my cob salad was fresh. Server was also perfect and came by at just the right times. We will be back for sure.
Had not been to Fionn MacCool’s previously. My butter chicken was excellent. The cheesecake is excellent.
Meal was good. Wait staff was great considering they just opened. Atmosphere was excellent. I would come here again.
Was very busy with the typical Saturday evening-pub noise. Service was great and quick. Request salad dressing on the side as I found mine was just a little too drenched. Drinks were great.
Wonderful first impression, friendly staff,food great, atmosphere warm. We will be back.
Impeccable service. Great food. Overall experience was excellent!
