Visited Finz for dinner on a Thursday night and was very impressed with the drink selection and food. I highly recommend the black and white tuna - probably the best tuna I've had in a restaurant. We also enjoyed the mussels and fried oysters as appetizers.

This newer restaurant was right on the water and not only had EXCELLENT people friendly servers but some of the best Lobster in town! We ordered the BIG 3 1/2 pound Lobster dinner that came with sweet Cobb corn and potatoes! Delicious! This is a "fine dining classy restaurant but eating a big lobster does require a Special Bibb! Enjoy!

Located right on the wharf, Finz offers a huge selection of freshly harvested seafood. Bright and airy atmosphere, friendly staff. Definite must.

seems like a very popular restaurant, this was my first time visiting. They have a variety of oysters, I got a few of all of them to sample and they were hands-down the most delicious oysters I've ever had. The meal itself was a delicious yellowfin tuna, and it was done perfectly. Too frequently restaurants overdue the tuna, making it... More

We waited until our last meal to have lobster, but ate seafood the entire three days we were down there. This meal topped all. We sat at the bar (which had a full menu), and all four meals were cleaned right down to the plate! (New England Lobster, Baja Fish Tacos, and Grilled Salmon). The wait staff was extremely friendly,... More

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.

Great location, altho parking can be tough. Greeted nicely and seated right away. Pretty setting for our special early evening dinner. Server was very good - excellent menu suggestions. Enjoyed our cocktails and appetizers but as the restaurant got more crowded, the noise level ramped up beyond what we would prefer. Food was delicious, but we quickly finished our dinner... More

Went to Salem for the day with my daughter. We were looking for a casual place for dinner with quality food. Finz was perfect. Beautiful water views. My daughter had a very reasonably priced and large-portioned kids meal. We split a salad. And I had a delicious crab cake appetizer and a lobster roll entree. All in all a delicious,... More

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!
