Recently made a family trip to BI (late Setpember) Went to Finn's for Dinner and had Excellent service, our Servers were helpful and pleasant. The White Sangria was awesome and the fried clams strips were top notch, all of our meals were excellent. I would recommend trying Finn's if you visit the island.

Finn’s is very much a hangout for locals. They have their own fish market next store. So, the fish is very fresh. The décor isn’t fancy; but, I wouldn’t want it to be for this type of restaurant. The food was very good. Although, some of the items seemed to be a little on the pricey side. A one and... More

We couldn't stop eating there; went every night they were open. The staff was super friendly (loved our greeter!). If you want fresh seafood- no coulis or reductions here-you will love it.

We walked off the ferry in old Harbor, dropped our luggage at Water Street Inn, and went to Finn's for lunch. It was great to sit outdoors on the upper deck and get oriented for another awesome stay on Block Island. The view of the ferries coming and going, of moped rentals, visitors to the travel information booth, and of... More

Super convenient location - right at the dock. The mussels (appetizer) were too large & the broth was just salted water. The swordfish was phenomenal & would order it again. Our server (Alicja) was sweet & helpful. She recommended the chocolate "pie" that was heaven

We always eat at Finn's when on-island. I just gotta have fried seafood when I'm in sight of the ocean, Finn's does not disappoint. Very fresh and not at all greasy.

i went to finns with family and friends for seafood. my 5 and 7 yr. old grand kids had steamers and mussels. others had the fresh tuna, lobsta, & salmon. we were all very happy with our choices. unfortunately it was a windy night so the wind breakers were up and distorted the view. But the food was fantastic.

When you live in New England, you get really picky about fish and seafood. The food was good, but paying more attention to detail would make it much better. I opted for the summer salad with lobster since it sounded better than a lobster roll. The salad arrived in a salad bowl with the lobster pieces on the top. It... More
