Recently had lunch here. Started off with their calamari, Rhode Island Style, which was fantastic, but then it went down hill. The Filet of Sole was good. Mashed potatoes and veggies were barely hot. No dinner rolls - never got the chance to ask. My friend had the Fried Haddock - which was good. All in all really not worth... More

We had not been to Finz in a while and had dinner there on a Friday evening. Finz was always a good spot but they have really turned it up a notch with some new dishes. The drinks at Finz are some of the best in town, the bartenders actually know how to make a good cocktail. The top shelf... More

Walked about 6 blocks out of our way for dinner. Waited for 10 minutes to be seated. Sat there for exactly 15 minutes while high-school age waitresses made small-talk with the tables around us. No drink order was taken, went next door to the Regatta Pub at Salem Waterfront Hotel for a tasty meal with quick service. Just know you... More

Very nice ambiance and very clean. Had the crab cakes they where really fantastic, clam chowder was super good too. As main dish we had the steamed Lobster, really excellent taste. Price was very fair for the quality of the food. Definitely recommend, will be my next place to eat when traveling through Salem.

Not the special place we had hoped for. The food is okay, but nothing special. The ambiance is lacking and feels like a restaurant out of the 70's.

Accommodating from reservation-making, through cocktails and right on through to the delicious birthday desserts. Remarkable caring, fun, young staff!

We came to Finz for dinner. We drove up from Providence for a day on Cape Ann. My boyfriend's son was visiting from Tennessee and just LOVES fresh seafood because he can't get it there. He ordered the steamed lobster which looked great. He really liked it. My boyfriend had the seared scallops which I took a bite of. They... More

Hi Kerry, I am so sorry to read that you didn't care for our Hot Lobster Roll. I can tell you that it is composed of 4oz of fresh lobster meat that is indeed sauteed in butter, served in a brioche bun. We do take care to purchase the best lobster meat available to us from a local supplier who... More

Really enjoyed this visit. Appetizers were excellent. Thai Chicken skewers, buffalo calamari and oysters from Duxbury were spot on. Had the haddock in a Newburgh crab sauce. Fresh and wonderful. Everyone loved it!
