Visited Finley's after church for an early lunch. I had the parmesan encrusted tilapia, which was delicious, along with the sweet potato. Add to that some bread, and I was full and content! Husband had prime rib, along with a decent serving of broccoli and a very large gourmet Finley salad. Delicious! Waitress was great and very attentive. Add to... More

Went here to support my daughter's class they had a fundraiser there. There was 5 of us and the restaurant was busy but we still got our food out fast and correct. The bbq, steak and dessert is awesome. They serve draft beer made in Michigan. I don't know how it is we don't drink. Will go back soon.

I was called by another place and told that power was out so no service. It was my Father's 90 birthday so I was determined to find someplace he liked. I called Finley's before noon and was told, of course, absolutely. They even allowed me to bring the cake early. The place was PACKED, but we were seated because of... More

We ate here on a busy Friday night, the place was full. A variety of menu items to choose from but they are known for their baby back ribs which were excellent, very meaty and flavorful sauce. It was to come with fries and Cole slaw, but I asked for a salad (with cherry vinegarette dressing!)and a baked sweet potato,... More

Stopped for a nice leisurely lunch with my husband on Valentine's Day. As usual, the food was great and the service excellent! I had the Parmesan encrusted tilapia while my husband had the large prime rib. Both were delicious, as were the sides/accompaniments. Make sure you have a piece on the NY style cheesecake with strawberries. Large enough for two,... More

Tried this place for dinner. Menu looked good and we ordered. Drinks came out along with bread and coleslaw but after 45 minutes and the no other food we just decided to leave. The manager saw us and just shrugged. She had no response when we told her we were tired of waiting for our food.

Ate at Finley's recently for the very first time. I ordered a Cuban sandwich (seems like everyone has a Cuban sandwich these days), which was a bit unusual. It did have the required pork (pulled pork in this case), ham, swiss cheese and pickles. The weird part was the bread they use which is basically a hoagie, but they turn... More

Been here many times. One of my favorite places for special occasions. Last time was for my sons birthday. The prime rib is excellent. They have many good dishes and there seems to be something for everyone.

Finley's recently added a smokehouse and I have to say that the BBQ just melts in your mouth. You have to try the baked beans, they have the absolutely best flavor you'll ever try.

We regularly eat at Finleys, and like it even more since they became Findley's grill and smokehouse... We are never disappointed with whatever we order. My husband's favorite is there a large Caesar salad with blackened salmon, and I love their chicken Hawaiian and the Parmesan encrusted tilapia. There is something for everyone on their menu. Their wait staff is... More

We are excited to have our own smokehouse located on the outdoor patio of each of our Finley's locations -- where we smoke our meats (Texas Beef Brisket, Georgia-style Pulled Pork, Michigan Raised "White Meat" Turkey, St. Louis Ribs and more) all low and slow for up to 17 hours over apple wood to bring you what we feel is the Best BBQ around!...Now Catering!

Our Black Angus steaks are hand-trimmed prepared the way you like. Not just ordinary steaks! But great tasting steaks!

Baby back Ribs Of course, our menu wouldn't be complete without our award-winning baby back ribs. Positively No Doubt! The Best Baby Back Ribs Money Can Buy. Tender fall-off-the-bone basted with our award-winning Kansas City barbecue sauce.

Prime Rib Our prime rib starts with carefully selected beef. Then we hand-rub each rib with our special seasonings then we slow roast it for hours.
