Fodor's Expert Review Finnegan's Wake Irish Pub and Eatery
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
"Come for the beer. Stay for the food. Leave with the staff," is the slogan of this popular pub. The pictures of Beckett, Shaw, Yeats, and Wilde on the walls and the creaky wood floors underfoot exude Irish country warmth. Traditional fare includes bangers and mash, chicken potpie, and colcannon balls—rich mashed potatoes with scallions, cabbage, and cheese sauce. Irish bread pudding topped with whiskey sauce and custard is a true treat. Live music on weekends and daily happy hours from 4 to 7 and midnight to 2 featuring more than 30 beers on tap make it popular with the spring break and sometimes-noisy drinking crowd, but you can find quieter spots in the back room and on the porch.
