Mickey Finn's used to be a quasi-Irish theme local tavern and later brewpub. The hallmark for me was good food and drink at a fair price in a pleasant atmosphere.

Somehow management got the idea that it would be good for business to change the character from a cozy dive bar to a slightly more upscale clone of "Bennigans", etc. attracting the "family" crowd.

If that wasn't bad enough for the dive bar lover such as myself, apparently they feel that the "Sports Bar" genre is where the money is at these days, so when they recently moved south a block or so on Milwaukee Ave, that's the theme that was selected for the second reboot of Mickey Finn's.

Perhaps this is what they feel is needed to stay in business, but I found the layout of the new space to be nothing short of a disaster. Loud to the point of impossible to have a conversation, no microbrew beer available when opened (and still not producing as of the date of this review), limited menu at least when we visited. I honestly cannot understand why anyone would go here other than they DO have a large number of HD TV's for the sports enthusiast.

I hope that when the "new" wears off that the management makes some much needed changes or I can foresee Mickey's closing within a year.



On May 8th several of us (13 to be exact) met for a reunion of sorts. We had not seen each other since grade school 30+ years ago. The weather had turned cold that weekend and we sat in the outdoor dining. The ambiance couldn't have been more perfect! We talked, ate and drank away the years as we all caught up on what everyone had been up to. Thank You Mickey Finn's for helping us have a most memorable evening...we look forward to many more!


cool bar

very cool bar with good pub food (great burgers). live music every weekend. dining room a little loud, but kid friendly. it's a brewery too so try the hefe weizen in the summer and santa's magic around christmas.


Pizza Delivery

Not sure when they started delivering, but glad they are....besides great burgers they really have awesome thin crust pizza. Perfect when you don't want to deal with the crowds on Friday or Saturday night.


Cool place in the 'burbs.

A suburban place with a kind of urban appeal. Really good burgers and micro-brews, ok service and a little loud. Great beer garden if it's not too hot.
