Fried food

The quality of the food was typical fried fare. On past visits the food seemed fresher. The service was good.

My wife, I, and another couple had dinner here yesterday, 05/11/15 at about 5 pm. It was almost empty (off hours, and on a Monday) which is just the way we like it. We've been here many times, albeit years ago. It's great, but be reasonable in your expectations. If your looking for a 5-star dinner, then spend your $200... More

Best part is the unique decor - each table has a large aquarium against the wall to view live fish, mostly denizens of the Mississippi River. Mostly fried fish entrees, prepared well. Great sides (baked beans and slaw).

OK--it was March--very low season--the place has a less than mediocre menu--food was pretty bad--I ordered Cod sandwich. It was hot, which was good; it was over-fried and tasteless, which was not good.

We went as a fun way to celebrate Valentine's day- as a FAMILY. While hubby and I have been before, this was our son's first time. I think that made it more fun for us, too. Sitting by tanks and watching fish was alot of fun- not to mention the enormous turtle! This is not a fine-dining place so do... More

Really neat place. Very cool fish tanks at your table. Lots of wooden beams, etc. kind of a log cabin look theme. Excellent wait staff. Fish was super yummy. Reasonably priced for the amount of food you get. Definitely going back for a visit.

Were thinking the Fin Inn was going to be a little more upscale than it was. The food was good though and the fish, etc in the wall-size aquariums where pretty cool.

History, novelty, and good food, an experience to enjoy when in the area. Had the buffalo catfish sandwich which was very good, as was the dessert.

Went there last night. We were sat quickly and food was on table very quickly. The place has tons of fish for the kids to look at during dinner. It has a very old feel and perfect for it's location in grafton!

The main attraction of this restaurant is the fish tanks by the tables with huge fish and turtles. The food is just poor to average and overpriced for what you get. The salad was just iceberg lettuce with a wedge of tomato and cucumber. I had the four choice combo platter. The catfish nuggets and hush puppies were good. The... More
