One of the oldest operating bars in Huntington, Finnegan's serves a mix of classic pub fare, contemporary dishes, and timeless brews for all palates and personalities. Cozied up along the dark wooden bar, guests can gander through the recently updated menu—a menu that was designed by culinary director Peter Lessing, the 2006 winner of the American Culinary Federation's Chef of the Year award. Visits get off to a steaming start with the hot spinach and artichoke dip served with tortilla chips ($8.95), and then hit their true stride with angus beef, ground turkey, or chicken pub burgers ($8.50 each) available with toppings such as swiss cheese, honey mustard, bacon, or pesto ($0.75 each). After a long, transatlantic doggie-paddle, champions from across the pond can refuel with fish and chips—traditional beer-battered cod served with tartar sauce and malt vinegar ($15.95)—while carnivorous connoisseurs dig into the marinated, onion-topped flank steak framed by mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables. All entrees, bunned or sans bun, are served with a choice of french fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings, or coleslaw.
