Stopped by on the way home for early evening dinner. We had the fish and chips and it was great. Also, the broccoli cheddar soup was fantastic.

I have never had anything at this restaurant that just wowed me. The drinks are standard, they have lots of draft beer options and mixed drink options. Fun for a group of people.

Need to fill your tank at midnight on Sunday? There aren't a lot of choices in these parts, but Finnigans delivers solid Irish -inspired pub grub until 2am and that makes it my go-to place when traveling through Winston-Salem. This place checks all the munchie...More
