As its name implies, Finn McCool's is a cool Irish pub, but it also has a whimsical twist to it. Classic Irish beers and whiskeys abound, but several of the indoor murals depict fantastic creatures alongside the more expected vistas of the old country. The menu specializes in all manner of Irish "fayre," including Ballymaloe beef stew, Irish potato pancakes, corned beef & cabbage, Gaelic steak, boxtys, bangers & mash, and shepherd's pie. Painted a festive blue, the corner bar is located on Main Street in Santa Monica, south of the 10 freeway. Street parking.
