Nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon, eating and drinking out on the deck in the sun. Wait staff was great. Not overbearing, but there when needed. The food was delicious! Quality of food is always fantastic at Finz....definitely going back.

Everything was terrific at Finz. The food, the service, the atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and will return. Swordfish was cooked perfectly and the lobster Mac and cheese is off the chart!

We hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner here and had a wonderful experience. The event manager Matt delivered on all things we asked for. All our guests remarked how good the appetizers and buffet tasted. The dessert display was very nicely set up. The bar service was prompt and attentive. The upstairs room was set up perfectly including special chairs and... More

We then ordered our appetizers. I ordered a half dozen oysters (@2.50 per oyster) and my wife ordered NE clam... More
