Went to Finns this week. Caught a nice early spring day. Sat outside with my wife. I had the lobster combo dish: a lobster roll with a cup clear broth chowder and two clam cakes. The menu said it was supposed to be a smaller version of their lobster roll, but to my surprise it was piled high and served... More

Went for lunch with friends yesterday. Cocktails and view were fine and dandy. Service was fabulous. However, the food was really lackluster. I ordered a bowl of chowder and 3 clam cakes. It tasted like the clam cakes were warmed up in a microwave. They were bland, dry and tasteless. Honestly, this is Rhode Island. Don't disappoint with CLAM CAKES!... More

Great place to go for a night out, especially when they have a live band. Lots of people and beautiful backdrop. Go and have a blast

Ok, it IS right on the water, but we sat on the deck in plastic chairs at a plastic table. Service was ok, food was just ok. Not as good as the "old Harborside" restaurant used to be. We were there on a weeknight so it wasn't busy. Won't bother to go back again.

We dined at Finns last week. We were eight guys drinking and eating and everything was good. We ordered many apps that were all good. The oysters were extremely fresh but a little overpriced. For dinner the lobster roll was pretty full with meat but the price was high for the dish. Everyone enjoyed their dinners and the service was... More

Let's start with - parking is terrible ! Their only real lot is " valet parkiing ". I prefer to find my own spot and do not like some "lot jockey" driving my car...because neither they nor the restaurant ever claim responsibility for scratches etc. It's in the "fineprint". In any case, was able to get a table on the... More

I attended a business networking lunch at Finn's Harborside earlier today. The food included lobster rolls as well as Turkey sandwiches. Finn's also served a very nice salad, pita bread and dip as well as mini-cheesecakes. Everything was excellent. Views of East Greenwich bay were beautiful. Great Lunch! Highly Recommended!

I missed lunch earlier today and stopped in to Harborside on my way out of town. I was feeling the need for Steamers but they were out so I wound up with steamed little necks. Although not as good as Steamers, they were adequate. Had an order of clam cakes and red chowder that were pretty good. Kathy, behind the... More

7 of us went here on a Friday at 5:30 for drinks and dinner. The ones that had fish said it was delicious, burgers were burgers, grilled chicken club was ehh, and clams casino were just ok.

They have a lobster sandwich that can serve 6-8 people, but I opted for the single serving. Ate right on the water, very casual dining with paper table coverings. Great Service and marina location. You can hear the bands from here, but not too loud
