The scallop roll was delicious. It was made quickly and worth the price. I find that everything at Finn's is reasonable and staff is friendly. Family oriented and not rowdy. Good place for all.

We had not been here since last year. We both had the New England clam chowder as a starter. She had the lobster roll and I had the fish and chips. We both were happy with our choices. We would go back again.

The food was excellent. The best part of eating here is that you can relax and enjoy a few drinks with your meal. It's right in front of the Ferry so it's the perfect spot to end your Block Island experience .

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your visits to Finn's. I am sorry that your scallops were overcooked. We buy them from a day boat that comes into the island so they are wonderfully fresh. It is a shame you...More
