Went there last night w my family . The food was great. It's hard to find a good meal in the area. We will frequent here again. We had lobster and filets. The lobster was sweet and the filets were tender and cooked perfectly. Great time !

Baked stuffed haddock and baked stuffed shrimp were overcooked. Crabmeat stuffing was mostly bread, not very tasty and soggy. Service and atmosphere were fine. Prices were reasonable.

the place has small portions I got the stuffed lobster tail and it came with 3 asparagus and half a scoop of mashed potatoes and my girlfriend got the pasta primavera with chicken. The pasta dishes are decent size but the only seasoning they used was a little lemon juice and pepper. which gave it almost no flavor. The waitress... More

My first experience at this restaurant was very good and decided to give it another go. Ordered the Hangar Steak medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. I went with a large group and the waitress was courteous and attentive and more than happy to do separate checks. The Merlot I ordered was also very good. They have a... More

When I think of going out for a really nice dinner. Southbridge doesn't even register on the radar. Fins and Tales was quite a surprise. The food was top notch, great service and attention to detail.

I've always been very pleased with the fried seafood and sandwich selections on the lunch menu. Now that the takeout window has closed I decided to try out the restaurant dining room this Saturday night. I found... More

We had moderate expectations despite a friend's recommendation. No pub style, bar fare here. The stuffed swordfish, a special of the night, was tasty, moist, perfectly cooked with a feta and spinach stuffing. The lobster salad roll was huge, all meat, lightly dressed. The fried oysters were crispy outside, delicious on the inside. The baked stuffed haddock was a hit,... More
