Overview

Finn McCool's Irish Sports Pub , located in Schaumburg & Crystal Lake in Illinois. Bringing a taste of Chicago's pub scene to the Suburbs, with a decor of rich, dark woods, stained glass, a large fireplace and a collection of Celtic artifacts peppered with music and sports collectibles to create a fun and colorful montage throughout the pub. "Finn McCool's captures the spirit of Irish warmth and hospitality, with a dash of downtown energy," said Mark Hoffmann, who along with Fred Hoffmann owns and operates Finn McCool's as well as dozens of other bars and restaurants in Chicagoland. "It's great to bring a classic Chicago pub to the suburbs". The name Finn McCool's comes from ancient Irish legends. Finn McCool (or Finn Mac Cumhail) was the greatest of the mythological Celtic heroes and leader of the Finians, the elite warrior band that guarded the high king of Ireland . Finn McCool's goes beyond typical pub food with more than 50 distinctive dishes on the menu, plus daily food specials. Finn McCool's is open serving both lunch and dinner. Tons of large extra-bright flat screen TVs provide full coverage of the day's sporting events. Tabletop speakers are available that can be tuned to each individual table's game of choice to hear the play-by-play. Patrons can also play sports and trivia video games on the NTN satellite network using cordless "playmaker" units to compete with players in bars across North America ... And Much Much More!

We came to Finn McCool's for a meal. We seated ourselves immediately and the restaurant was not overly busy. Our server, Noelle, was also the bartender. Normally, I hate when that happens, because it usually means that the service won't be attentive. I must admit...More

We came here after dinner just for drinks and enjoyed it! The ambiance is great and quite large. The drink menu offers a large assortment and affordable pricing. We did not eat but the food menu looked good. Would like to come back!

Great Happy hour specials. Fish and chips are decent and they actually have malt vinegar! Fries are yummy. A decent pour of Guinness, comes in 12 oz. And 20 oz. Very comfortable place.

Stopped in for lunch and had a great burger and fries. Very nice Irish, sports-themed bar that I would definitely try again. Prices were very reasonable and good was excellent.
