It was a terrible experience. We set up reservations for 20 of us. When we got ready to order, the wait staff informed us that the manager would not serve us alcohol since we were boating all day. (Annual Boat Trip) We were not intoxicated, and did not get out of line. The sad thing is the waitress told us... More

Good grilled fish and opportunity to see the local fish close up! Glad they don't have the big turtles cooped up any more.

This place is old, dark and nasty. It has seen better days. The wait staff was very unfriendly and just going through the motions. The entire menu consists of FRIED food. There is not one salad listed on the menu. The entire place is dank and smells old. AVOID at all cost. This place needs closed by the Health Department.

While sitting at a booth with a huge aquarium is a unique experience, the menu leaves much to be desired. Almost everything on it is fried food. We did manage to order baked tilapia which was excellent. Glad we went for the experience but wouldn't go back.

Stopped here for lunch. The place is aging and smells a bit musty but its still there after all these years. You can eat in a booth next to one of the large aquariums. Food is average but if you like fish its the place to go in Grafton.

My family and I visited the Fin Inn for the first time this week after being recommended by several people. We were sorely disappointed. The interior of the restaurant seemed very dusty and in need of a good cleaning. While the concept is great the service is substandard and the food quality was terrible. I could have gotten a better... More

My wife and I ate at Fin Inn for the first time this evening. Only 1 negative, so I'll start with that and get it out of the way. We waited about 20 minutes for a seat, which did not surprise us based on previous reviews (popular local restaurant with limited seating). What did surprise us was that NO ONE... More
