What is Finnegan’s Bar & Grill?

A local favorite, Finnegan’s Irish character overflows like its drinks. Finnegan’s Bar & Grill serves up tons of hearty Irish fare with a menu full of unique (and many beer-battered) selections, while the friendly staff and the occasional live performers give the venue a great atmosphere. By the way, may we recommend the beer sampler?

Separate from the full-service dining that (usually) requires reservations, Finn’s has a full bar that any ol’ theme-park guest can walk right up to (you must be 21 or older to order alcohol, of course). For those looking for a cocktail, there’s truly no better place at Universal Studios Florida. This location is popular during seasonal event nights, like Mardi Gras and Halloween Horror Nights, because it serves real-deal mixed drinks from its full-service bar – that’s why we believe it’s the best bang-for-your-buck place for a drink at Universal. The regular bartenders are awesome, too!

Where is Finnegan’s Bar & Grill located?

If you’re looking for a free cup of water, consider stopping into Finnegan’s bar (if it’s not too busy) rather than waiting in a long quick-service line. The Finn’s bartenders are pros, used to slinging drinks quickly, and will usually be happy to hook you up.

Great Experience
Date Of Last Visit: November 22,2014

This was our first time at Finnegan's . The food was good, the service was good, and I would return. We had the potato and onion basket, shepherd's pie, fish and chips, potato and leek soup, and a hamburger. All were good to great except the was lacking in taste.

I recommend visiting this restaurant.

When visiting a new restaurant, I often opt to order many small plates like appetizers instead of full meals to sample more things. A shrimp scargo, a potato and onion webb, wings, and a Scotch egg later, we decided we were full (especially given that we were heading to Revenge of the Mummy right after and didn't want to lose our lunch on the guest sitting next to us!). The shrimp scargo was an interesting take on one of my favorites, escargot. The buttery garlic sauce was fragrant and warm and was AMAZING to dip bread into! The Scotch egg and wings were good, but nothing to write home about.

My favorite, though, was the potato and onion webb. It was balanced well between the two flavors and wasn't greasy (something that I find hard to achieve when frying potatoes). Throw in a few draft beer samplers (with souvenir cup!) and I'd say this is a solid choice for a meal at Universal Studios.

I love this place...well until this past visit when the bar tender totally under poured our drinks then gave us a huge attitude about it. We are regulars there since we have annual passes and love this bar. Its very unfortunate that they would hire someone that doesn't know her job or have people skills. The other workers however are fantastic and I would definitely go back to one of them.

Date Of Last Visit: October 24, 2013

We were in the park with a Stay and Scream ticket for HHN so I made a 4:15 dinner reservation to take advantage of early entry for the evening. We were seated immediately on arrival. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. We had the Pot Pie and Newcastle Chicken. And drinks of course. The food was pleasantly presented and very tasty and the service was excellent from start to finish. The drinks were good and not "watered down." While we were dining orange shirted staff came in handed our wrist bands to those who had tickets to the NNH. It was a lively place with live entertainment and people coming in from the "holding pen" for drinks while they waited. It was a very enjoyable to pass the time. Will make it "must" on future USF visits.

Hmmmmm so good.
Date Of Last Visit: 7/08/2013

What can I say that everybody hasn't said already, its amazing.

Once you walk in you'll feel like your not even in a theme park anymore. Since having the annual pass and living in Miami I try to at least once a month drive up to Orlando to spend some time away. Its one of the best places to beat the heat, sit down and relax, maybe have a drink or 2. Bartenders are great, very friendly and fun to talk to.

Mixed drinks are made to perfection, you have to at least once a trip try them out. Mummys revenge is so goood. Nice pours on the vodka & chambord with just a hint of the sweet & sour. Just as exciting as the ride. Lots of good beers on tap even a nice Sierra Nevada IPA on there. One of the few full bars that has happy hour. One thing I wish they would bring back is Palm beer they used to have.

Now when it comes to food I haven't found anything on the menu that I don't like yet, but I did say yet. You need to start off with the Scotch Eggs, boiled eggs wrapped in sausage with a nice mustard sauce to dip in its so good. My favorite thing is the shepherds pie. So stop by and check it out, tell them Pepe (the muppet) sent you, hes always at the bar..
