I love the food. I usually get the fish sandwich and those wonderful boxty chips (they are to die for). I go at lunch and have never had a bad meal but the service sometimes is questionable and the only reason I don't go often. Sometimes you get great fast service and other times you get horrible service and it... More

Very glad that the food is always great but sorry for the inconsistent service. We strive to have great service and the staff is trained to provide it. Thank you for pointing it out!

Wandered into Fionn MacCools on a business trip and discovered great food. Shared chicken wings, apple salad, and reuben spring rolls. The salad was very good with fresh ingredients and amazing blue cheese crumbles. Chicken wings were huge and were very tasty. The highlight of the meal was the spring rolls. Perfectly cooked and delicious!

We came for an early dinner. We were seated promptly and sat outside which was along river walk. That is fascinating in itself. Nice river views and you could relax watching bustle of city. Server came quickly, easily explained one of the appetizers, the Scotch Egg, which was tasty and brought our drinks. I had the lamb shank which was... More

Stopped in for a lunch and it was excellent. Actually went back the next night with a group of us and the service was great even when busy. Can't remember the gentleman's name but he served us lunch and then dinner later. Fun place for some Irish music and good beers.

In Jacksonville for business and stayed at the Hyatt Regency Riverside. Fionn MacCool's is a short walk from the Hotel in a shop and restaurant complex that features a river view. FM is kind of the hub of the place. A definite Irish-American vibe. Live music in the evenings. Good beer selection (featuring Guinness, of course), wide variety or Irish... More

We had previously eaten at this restaurant a few years ago and the food quality was better but it was still nice to come back and have our meal - the nachos and guinness burger. The nacho portion seemed smaller and the burger was a little overdone but overall not bad. We probably won't come back but it's a nice... More

Thank you so much for coming in and for taking the time to review us. We are a family restaurant and try very hard to maintain high standards. We are going through some growing pains in the kitchen and obviously training new staff has its kinks. Please consider stopping in when you visit Jacksonville again. Sláinte! More

The pretzels are amazing! Beer cheese is delicious. You get beer cheese dip, chocolate dip and poppy seed mustard dip. The beer cheese was the best, but you don't even need dip. The preztels are soft and delicious by themselves. I also had the lamb. It was so tender and good. By the end of dinner, i could hardly walk... More

Stopped by on our way back to our hotel and enjoyed a couple of drinks and a hot pretzel. Sat at the bar so can't speak for the table service but our service at the bar was excellent and customers didn't seem to be waiting too long to be seated.

The decor was very authentic Irish Pub. The location is right on the river so very nice views. The food was so close to actually being in Ireland. We tried the Scottish Egg, and it was wonderful.
