Good service, food usually pretty good

I especially like Finz in the summer when the harbor is full of boats because you can sit out on their deck and watch the yachts moored right next to you. The service is usually good here and the staff are friendly. Food is generally pretty good if you stick with the traditional style dishes.

Seated fast for being as busy as it was. Our server was great and really friendly. The food was delicious as well as the drinks. Would definitely eat here again on a future visit!

I live in Pickering Wharf and Finz is one of my favorite places to hang. Never have a problem getting served. Love sitting in a high top! The drinks are always served up right and the menu has a great selection! I'm an oyster junkie and the dollar oyster specials are great! This a a place you want to try.... More

We celebrated my 50th in the function room upstairs--had delicious hot and cold pass appetizers, an antipasto station and pasta station. Great bartenders, servers. Large dance floor. Fantastic venue for a party of 50-75 to have wonderful time!

Have dined a few times with family a few times. Handsome nautical theme interior, good service and flood with a seafood dominance. Good alcohol menu, good service in a good location. On the expensive side, parking a problem but sous all of Salem. Nice walk on the waterfront after. A very enjoyable experience every time we visited

Great food, I came here on two occasions during a week long business trip. Both times the food was exemplary. Crab cake, excellent starter. I Had tuna main course the fist time which was cooked perfectly (rare) and haddock the second time beautiful and flakey. Both occasions were an excellent experience. Would definitely recommend.

Our food was plated and it was cooked to perfection! It was hot, not overdone and the vegetables were cooked just perfect! Everyone raved about it. Thank you Matt for... More

Visited Finz with family for Sunday lunch. Managed to find parking a block or so away. Had a reservation but wasn't necessary on this occasion. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Menu had a good variety along with some specials. Fried calamari appetizer was fresh and nicely prepared. The waitress suggested some oysters which were succulent. Grilled fish entrees were... More

I've tried lobster rolls all over the north shore up to Maine. Finz has the best! They're consistent too.
