This place is a keeper. Good food for a bar, really friendly atmosphere if a few too many tykes sometimes....but this is a family town so that could be viewed as a plus for those with kids and grandkids. They have music and the games on and regulars hang out. Super easy to just have a chat and get a bite and something to drink. It has been a great addition to downtown Novato.
GREAT PLACE!!! Food is Super fast and good! Beer selection is best in Marin. A family place any night of the week. A little loud but who cares, you're eating in a pub... so it works out! BEST PLACE IN NOVATO!!!
Situated smack dab in the middle of a charming downtown..Finnegan's made us feel like we were in the Balboa Cafe (SF) or Liverpool Lil's (SF too) but a little more relaxed. It could easily have been a comfy NYC corner bar and restaurant we were at but when we walked outside to see the mountains in the distance.. it was Marin (thank God!).. The full bar is beautiful.. the bartenders were attentive and gregarious but able to work the already full room (it was a Saturday around 4pm). A great vibe beneath all the local sport hero pictures and Marin memorabilia. There is a tie to the East coast here.. as reportedly the owners family owns a Finnegan's in New Jersey.
The food was wayyyyyy beyond your average pub fare!! The chef, a gargantuan, came out of the kitchen to check on our meals and the folks next to us.. what a pleasure! We had a pork dish, a wonderful meat ragout dish, fish n chips, and the special of the day.. a seafood paella.. Everything was beyond good. The bar is a full one.. the beers on tap are are off the run and cold as can be. They serve lunch and dinner daily..and BRUNCH on the weekends.. We went back on Sunday for brunch and we were again pleased beyond words. The large chef once again came out and made the rounds whilst the bar was filling up with singles to catch the NFL games. They also have live music Wed & Sat nights, an open mic on Monday, Trivia on Tues and more. Their outdoor patio looked nice but we didn't make it away from the bar!
This place is destined to last .. it feels like it is part of the community and should be for a long..long time. We will be back! Thanks.
