My first experience at this restaurant was very good and decided to give it another go. Ordered the Hangar Steak medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. I went with a large group and the waitress was courteous and attentive and more than happy to do separate checks. The Merlot I ordered was also very good. They have a... More

When I think of going out for a really nice dinner. Southbridge doesn't even register on the radar. Fins and Tales was quite a surprise. The food was top notch, great service and attention to detail. While I first thought this would be a special occasion place the headliners were not priced over the top and the draft beers well... More

I was a frequent diner at the Fins & Tales takeout window this summer since I work within walking distance of the restaurant. I've always been very pleased with the fried seafood and sandwich selections on the lunch menu. Now that the takeout window has closed I decided to try out the restaurant dining room this Saturday night. I found... More

We had moderate expectations despite a friend's recommendation. No pub style, bar fare here. The stuffed swordfish, a special of the night, was tasty, moist, perfectly cooked with a feta and spinach stuffing. The lobster salad roll was huge, all meat, lightly dressed. The fried oysters were crispy outside, delicious on the inside. The baked stuffed haddock was a hit,... More

I was actually going to the Chinese restaurant in the neighborhood, but decided to try F&T. Food was great, staff was friendly and is was a nice atmosphere!! I will certainly go again.

The fried oysters were not even a little crispy -- the oysters were fresh, but were cloaked in a soggy, beige coating. The chicken parmesan was a disaster, a frozen, breaded chicken cutlet deep fried, with a slice of melted cheese on top, accompanied by a side of cold spaghetti with a bland, flavorless tomato sauce. My friend bit into... More

We read the reviews in advance, but decided to go anyway because we're in no hurry. The food was great, reasonably priced, but the service was slow and unconcerned.

We were near the end of a very long journey home, very hungry, and granted it was Tuesday night but it was empty except for some loud people at the bar. How we ran into this place off of 84 I have no idea, but nothing else was open, and it looked interesting on the outside. My son ordered a... More

Dinners are a little pricey and nothing special about them . Dinner selections are minimal. Have dined here occasionally for special occasions but dinners are just satisfactory.
