Tasty fried pickles & a juicy jalapeno jack cheese burger, need I say more! This is such a great place for happy hour... A cold beer on the lake is the way to end any day! Bring a big group of friends & give them a lil' taste of Austin at its best...
You can always tell what makes a great restaurant when you look to see where the owner is.. In Johnny Fin's case, he is right in the thick of it. From serving food to being a social host, Johnny does it all and makes sure everyone is having a good time.
I like the cheesesteak, simple and always a tummy filler. The drinks are alway great and cold. The burgers are good as well. To finish, I recommend the warm brownie and ice cream, always a pleaser.
Having dinner on the patio in the cool fall nights and watching a band, well, it doesn't get any better. Its a fabulous place to experience the lake lifestyle.
Critical points: sometimes at lunch they are understaffed. The crew still works hard but they could use the help.
Go on the weekends to see a band and hang out and party with your friends into the wee hours. The music was awesome and everyone was dancing!! Tons of women in bikinis and men buying drinks. It is the place to be on the lake in the evening. I love the burgers...the buns where buttered..it was cooked to perfection. I thought that my service was laid back and original. It is a hidden oasis in the commercialized desert. Since the place has turned to Johnny Fins I have seen nothing but great changes. Keep up the great work and local support! Oh, and fireworks on the 4th of July.
Pros: Atmosphere, Originality, Burgers
Cons: Busy, Parking is Tricky
ive been to johnny fins a few times and i love it. i couldnt let the place be degraded by a few reviews when the place is what it is. the atmosphere isnt for the romantic night and probably not for the elderly. But, if youre into a good night with good music and an awesome bar this is the place. Being out on the lake gives it a feeling that almost strips away the stress of reality. The cheeseburgers are AWESOME and are complimented with perfectly seasoned fries.
Pros: food, atmosphere, bar and music
Cons: lil pricey
Maybe it isn't Vincent's but Johnny Fin's is still a good place to go. Expect to park and walk far unless you opt for valet parking. The prices seemed fine. Burgers were great. If you sit on the patio at night it's beautiful. The restaurant is a giant floating dock right on the lake and the band that we heard did good cover tunes. Not the hottest spot but not terrible either.
