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!

No lines and no wait after 1:00 in the afternoon. The fish tanks were a very nice touch. I had the Flame Broiled Catfish sandwich.... More

I've eaten here many times. The restaurant is looking a little old, but not nearly as bad as some say on here. Also, yes, all the food is fried....welcome to America! It's all good food, I especially like the fried catfish sandwich and hushpuppies. I've never had bad service. I like the aquariums next to each table, it's cool to... More
