Classic Block Island simplicity! Good for lobster dinner inside but I usually have fried clams outside on the picnic tables. Others go for the lobster rolls.

We are Block Island regulars, but have neglected Finn's for many years because we're vegetarians. On a lark, we decided to go. The Gardenburger was outstanding--there's also a grilled portobello mushroom and several substantial salads. But what makes dining at Finn's something special is the deck at dusk--brightly whitewashed, dramatically lit, and adorned with a brace of American flags. It... More

We had read mixed reviews of Finn's and it was a mixed dinner that we received. I was looking for a whole lobster dinner and since it was late in the season Finn's was the only place I could find that was still serving it. My 1 1/2 lobster was tasty and the meal was quite satisfying. Nothing spectacular. My... More

During my girls weekend trip to Block Island last summer, we had early dinner here. Friendly staff, great view, open space and good food. Perfect place to eat if you want to catch your ferry right after since it's only a few minutes walk. We really enjoyed all the seafood here except tuna. With everything we ordered for dinner, it...

We stopped here for a light dinner after reading favorable reviews. We had a bowl of chowder and split a portabello mushroom sandwich. Both items were enjoyable. As it was cool out we ate inside, which is getting tired. They seriously need to freshen the place up. As Finns has lots of outside dining this may not affect your visit,... More

We visited this establishment on a early Sunday evening before attending a movie. We sat at the empty bar. The bartender was personable and pleasant. The food was very good but one order was incorrect and had to be sent back. Also, a discount was advertised but not given on our bill.

A seafood restaurant right next to the ferry depot on Block Island. Convenient but average. The wait for a table for a large party was going to be very long so we chose the take out window and take out seating. The food was just average. One couple's food was not ready until everyone had fiinished eating; be forewarned if... More

We stood at the hostess station for 15 minutes, waiting to get a table. No one came to assist us. Not wait staff, not the woman working the take out window.

We had dinner here during the Labor Day holiday weekend. Although my dinner was terrible, the others had delicious food. The waitress had the chef prepare me another piece of fish and again it wasn't right. I'm happy to say the manager came over and apologized and took the meal off the bill. I thought the staff handled the problem... More

I asked the server to rate their lobster roll from 1 to 10 and she said 9. Well she should have said 5 as it was very small pieces of lobster with no taste. She never came back to ask me how I liked it. I wonder why
