Finn's is casual by the water in Greenwich bay. The prices are reasonable the food is very good and the view is great if you like marinas and a view across the water to Goddard Park. Two people had Fried clam Sandwiches were very good and one other person had their snail Salad which was very good. The service was... More

On a frigid Saturday, in search of a seafood lunch for my sister visiting from Wisconsin, we decided to take a chance on Finn's, since we would be nearby. We were not disappointed. Although the place was virtually deserted when we arrived -- and stayed, with more than a little apprehension -- our lunches hit the spot. And as we... More

if you want a classic New England meal in an old school setting replete with live music this spot is for you. I mean, what's a Saturday night with out a piano serenade? Everything about this place screams nostalgia in the very best way. Our server couldn't have been more personable. We had the Prime Rib and the Lobstermaina both... More

Some like this restaurant because it is near the docks and the boat traffic makes this a busy spot during the summer. Maybe, because we are locals and went there in the late fall, the "magic" of the place seemed to be lost. I can say that the lobsters were good, and they will serve it whole (for those that... More

Visited here for first time in 20+ years, and what was then a raucous nite spot is now a mellow dinner spot (due to being off -season maybe ?) for a quiet dinner - get a waterview table. No complaints, just not as vibrant as I'd expected. The crowd on a Friday night seemed a little geriatric (which is not... More

I grew up in East Greenwich and gorged on clamcakes by the dozen bought in paper sacks from a shack just past the tracks. We made our clam chowder with big chunks of potato and lots of minced clams (or quahogs) in a 'clear' broth - because that way you actually taste the clam flavor instead of milk, or God... More

This is now called Finn's Harbourside, and we had the opportunity to eat here this past Saturday evening. We were in time for early bird...which offered the twin lobsters for $18.95. They were the best lobsters I have had in a LONG time!! They were split open, cleaned and the presentation was wonderful! I ordered a side salad to go... More

I got studies which were excellent but I'm not from the area and I thought they were good. I also had fish and chips which was just average for me. I loved this place about 4 years ago but the reason I came back is for the view. It's really quiet down there and they had a band which was... More

I have lived in Rhode Island most of my life, and have visited this establishment for many years. This season, new owners took the place over and I must say I didn't notice any improvement. The food is pricey for the quality...atmosphere is nice, but if you go next door, you can find much better food and just as gorgeous... More
