Come Experience True Irish Authenticity at “Finnegan’s Pride” Irish Pub
Only Bar of Its Kind
Nothing is more synonymous with good times with family and friends, music, food and drink, than the great land of Ireland. At Finnegan’s Pride Bar & Grill we’ve created a wonderful respite from the hustle and bustle of Tyson’s Corner with 100% Irish authenticity, right down to the custom Dublin designed 12 foot high, 30-foot wide bar featuring an array of the best beers, cocktails and spirits offered and where you’ll enjoy our full menu of traditional and progressive Irish foods.
The restaurant features an outdoor patio and private event room. Reservations are accepted for seating in the main dining. Call ahead at (703) 883-2000.
Free garage parking is available in the garage next to the restaurant at 8150 Leesburg Pike.
At Finnegan’s Tyson’s you can watch the big game on one of our 18 LED HD TVs in the restaurant. Thursday and Friday nights we always feature live acoustic music. Daily specials include Sunday Brunch and Saturday Night Prime Rib Special.
Triva fan? Wednesdays at Finnegan’s there’s always a crowd of game loving trivia players.
Directly in the heart of Tyson’s Corner
Situated in the heart of the Tyson’s Corner business district, Finnegan’s Pride Irish Pub boasts supreme accessibility. Conveniently located at the intersection of Leesburg Pike & International drive, the area’s only authentic Irish Restaurant is just one mile away from the Dulles Access Road and two blocks from the Tyson’s Corner mall. No car? No problem, as we are located just two easy blocks from the brand new Tyson’s Corner metro. Whether by car or by foot, we’ll see you soon.
Host your Party or Business Lunch in our Meeting Room
Directly adjacent to the main entrance is our brilliantly lit meeting room, perfect for business dinners, lunches, or celebratory parties. This space features two large HD flat panels which can be used for a variety of professional purposes, or simply to watch the big game.
Shaded outdoor seating, a rarity in the Tyson’s area
We know it can be quite hot in the D.C. area, so if you prefer to enjoy your frothy Guinness outside, there’s no better place than the shaded patio at Finnegan’s. There’s enough seating for 30, and a HD flat panel big enough for everyone to enjoy from any perspective.
Free Garage Parking
While Finnegan’s is located in a parking lot with mostly reserved spaces, there is a spacious parking garage just a few yards away. We validate parking for our customers all hours of the day.
Tim Thompson, Chef and General Manager
Tim Thompson’s two sides – the funny one and the serious one – serve him well in his job as executive chef and general manager of Finnegan’s, since the job calls for (among other things) talent and a sense of humor.
Self-described as a Mama’s Boy, Tim says he started cooking around the age of 10, when he asked his mom to teach him everything she knew about food. Pennsylvania Dutch born and bred, she rolled up her sleeves and set to work training him in slicing, dicing, chopping, roasting and braising all of the family favorites.
After high school, he set out to find his place in the world and began looking outside his hometown of York, Pennsylvania. Having learned that he wasn’t all that happy in a classroom, Tim returned to his first love: cooking. For this, he headed north to an Italian restaurant outside of Harrisburg where he worked as executive chef for four years before moving down to Virginia to take a position as sous chef at Paolo’s in Reston. After four years there, he did a short stint at Old Glory in Georgetown before moving on to Coastal Flats in Fairfax.
But what Tim really wanted in a job was not prestige or a title, but control over the menu and the day-to-day operations. Not ready for the investment and the headaches that go with owning your own place, Tim agreed to help open Finnegan’s earlier this year and serve as executive chef and general manager. His position gives him control of the restaurant’s direction, as well as an outlet for his creative side.
Never being one to shy away from any particular type of cuisine, Tim spent many years making pizza, barbecue, seafood, sandwiches and more before taking on the challenge of helping to develop a menu for an Irish restaurant. Although Finnegan’s has three locations, Tim’s menu in Tyson’s is different from the others. Everyone expects corned beef and cabbage, but few expect corned beef eggrolls, or corned beef nachos, but that’s what the customers get at Tim’s location.
Tim also avoids pre-prepped foods, preferring to develop his own recipes, not just for the big things, like the way they slow roast their corned beef in-house every day, but for the little things too, like the homemade thousand island dressing and Guinness barbecue sauce. He is very proud of the reubens he serves (prepared with care, love, and a half-pound of corned beef) and the special barbecue sauce that won him a crowd favorite award at Northern Virginia Magazine’s King of Wings battle. It’s that kind of customer appreciation, and the pride of craftsmanship, that make Tim feel like all the extra effort and hard work he puts in each day is worth it.
