The seafood is very fresh. The way it's prepared is okay. The mussels were prepared in what tasted like warm ocean water with no taste... Again the mussels without the broth were great. The linguini with clam sauce was barely satisfactory... Clams were fresh... Broiled seafood combo was best dish we had.... Preparation was basic with butter and garlic but... More

We ate at Finn's last evening and had a great meal! It was very easy to get to after picking up family members arriving on the Ferry. We were seated promptly, hostess and wait staff were courteous and good humored!. I enjoyed the seafood skewers over rice and others in my family enjoyed fresh scallops and lobster stuffed shrimp.

We have eaten at Finns countless times over the last 20 years. This week was by far the worst dinner we have had there. Indifferent service and poor quality food. The mussels and steamers looked like they were leftover from lunch and were terrible. Fish and chips was ok. Won't go back. Prices are not justified--other restaurants on BI provide... More

We are very sorry that you were disappointed with your recent experience at Finn's. Please be assured that we do not reheat or serve leftover steamers or mussels. All food is cooked to order. We will go over cooking procedures with the cooks to make sure they do not over-cook the shellfish which may be what happened in your case.... More

After a day of bike riding on the island, this was our dinner stop before taking the ferry back to the mainland. Very convenient location and take-out was a time saver. We ordered a whole belly clam dinner and fish and chips. Both meals were good and no complaints. With take out, our task was to find a table in... More

Finn's is the best place on the island for reasonably-priced, fresh, delicious fish. Their service is fast and friendly, and eating on the porch is the best.

Stopped in for a late lunch on the recommendation of a waitress at another restaurant. It was wonderful. Great lobster salad - very little mayo- lots of lobster. Good drinks and great service. We ate upstairs and had fun watching the water.
