End of summer getaway

Food was very very good. Location is overlooking the ferry. If you can sit upstairs you get a better view than the parking lot. The seafood was good, fresh and plentiful. The service was attentive.

Service was good. Menu had a many options. I had the lobster roll club sandwich and was pretty good. However my husband had a salad with feta and olives. He was not happy with his choice. In general great place to have lunch facing the harbor. Full view of the the ferries coming and going.

Food was cooked perfectly. What we expected from a seafood place right on the water. Nothing fancy. Service was strange. Brought the wrong order first, then brought 2 sides that weren't part of the order either. Would we return? Probably not.

We have been to Finns about 5 times over the last two years with friends and just my wife and I . Great service and good food in a timely manner . Prompt seating and no pressure to "move along " I advise you come before 5:00 , as they can fill up fast. We always get there about 4:30... More

A few years ago, we first visited BI and were amazed with our meals at Finn's. Everything was so fresh and delicious, my spouse and I often reminisce about it. When we recently visited here we were a bit cautious, hoping it would be just as good. It was better than we remembered! The fried fisherman's platter is hands down... More

Finns usually has decent seafood. Since it is on Block Island, it's overpriced. On my most recent stop, the clam chowder was more potato chowder as there were only a few very small bits of clam in the bowl. My fish sandwich was undercooked. My friend's lobster was good though.

Stopped in for an early dinner before taking the ferry home. We ate on the covered patio. I can highly recommend the fish and chips. The fish was cod and very well prepared. It was a generous portion that came with FF and coleslaw. The fish arrived piping hot and was delicious. We also had the fried clam plate which... More
