About us

Finley Dunne’s Finley

Dunne’s Tavern was established in 1996 and remains one of the most popular neighborhood bars in the Paulina Station area of Lakeview in Chicago. ‘The Tavern” serves a wide array of neighborhood guests and groups. It has become a destination spot for many who want to enjoy the great staff, large beer selection, and our Famous ‘Ryan Burger”. The Tavern was named after Chicago Evening Post columnist Finley Peter Dunne, who created a fictional bartender named Mr. Dooley as a vehicle for his political and social satire. Finley Dunne believed that every great neighborhood is centered around its Tavern!

Our Menu

We’re not foodies, but we love our food. So when we designed the Finley Dunne’s Tavern menu we had two principles in mind.First, we nailed the classics. That’s why you won’t find a better burger than our (almost) World Famous Ryan Burger, wings cooked and flavored to perfection, wraps of all types, and salads prepared fresh to order. But we also wanted to offer something unexpected.Our kitchen is open Monday through Thursday at 5:00 PM; Friday at 2:00 PM; weekends at 3:00 PM.
