The food was good and prices reasonable . A big negative for us was the restaurant had a number of vacant tables on upper deck but said they were for takeout orders. We wanted to order off menu and were forced to sit inside. Seems to me restaurant customers should get tables over take out orders..not impressed.

Finns was decent, but in comparison to other places like the Surf, Mannises, The Oar, and Dead Eye Dicks- it falls short. I would recommend going some place else where the food is better- there are so many options on Block Island. I would recommend getting seating on the top deck and not on the patio on the ground level.... More

We enjoyed our experience with Finns! We spent the day on Block Island & realized we hadn't made a reservation. When we arrived to Finns the hostess was very accommodating. She said she would find a spot for us! We didn't even have to wait! Definitely recommend trying this place out!

Finn's is great for a classic New England style seafood experience. Went twice and enjoyed it both times. Had lobsters, fried clams and then a fisherman's platter. All were fresh and delicious.

while visiting Block Island we had a late lunch at Finn's. We decided on the Clams Strips and got a pitcher of the white sangria. Both were excellent. and the portions were generous. We ate outside on the upstairs deck overlooking old harbor. The service was very good.

We have dined here every year we come to the Island. This year it was just average. Not spectacular. The Clam Chowder was just OK. For the price it should knock your socks off. I was expecting much better from Finn's. They will get another chance next time. Maybe it was an off night.

Good location and very helpful and friendly staff, unfortunately that is where it ended. N.E. Chowder tasted good but was too fluid (watered down) and the garlic butter mussels while plentiful tasted neither of garlic or butter for that mater. So an average rating for a restaurant that should be doing much better than that, given there location.

Finn's just seems to get a little worse every year. This last visit was the clincher. Rude, flighty waitress. Calamari that was clearly previously frozen (in a state that abounds with squid, this is unforgivable). Fried fish sandwich had an embarrassingly small portion of super-greasy fried fish on a mushy roll with cold fries. Even the draft beer was warm.... More
