Great Finley Burger and local pale ale hits the mark. Good Irish pub theme with wide selection of beers. The view from the balcony was superb!

Excellent service from Kelsi coupled with exceptional food in the form of the Butter Battered Chicken Burger! NOT your run-of-the-mill pub menu by ANY stretch. Just DELICIOUS! The amazing view of Nelson makes Finley's a "don't pass this up" pub FOR SURE!

Finley's is more bar than pub based on the dark wood furniture, stage for live music, the pull tab machines and the faint smell of beer, but the food says gastropub all the way. It shares a kitchen with the tiny fine dining restuarant Sage, and it shows. Burgers are huge, well cooked, and a giant step above typical bar... More

Food was great, and it came fast. The feel was rustic and fun. The service was pretty good, although basic. We would return again.

We ate here one night because it was close to our accommodation. It was a bit odd because when we sat down at our table, the waitress took the condiment basket off our table and gave it to another table... And we needed those condiments cause the food was a bit tasteless, particularly the fried food (onion rings & mushroom... More

This establishment used to be a good place to come and party - but now it offers delicious pub fare (upscale!), modern decor and the new windows make it seem larger. The atmosphere is still party but always a good vibe. The new chef they've got in there has really transformed the menu - duck confit club sandwich, duck poutine,... More

I've lived in the area for 5 years and had not tried Findleys. I'm glad we did today!! It was better than I could have hoped for, great service, good prices and the steak sandwich was top notch.
