Good seafood, perhaps a bit rushed service

My wife and I visited Finz again for our 44 anniversary. We started out with 2 Finz cocktail ($9 each) which were very good and reminded us both of a drink my mother used to make when she was alive. We then ordered our appetizers. I ordered a half dozen oysters (@2.50 per oyster) and my wife... read more

We were in Salem for the weekend for the first time. So with all the restaurant choices it can overwhelming. The front desk person recommended Finz and we were not disappointed. It's is casual dining with a flare of sophistication. Food was prepared well and very good. Good experience. Can only imagine how nice it would be eating outside on... More

They were very accommodating (we had a dog with us) and their calamari appetizer was light and cripsy... The fried haddock was DELICIOUS! Would come again, definitely

We ate at Finz on a sunny weekly afternoon. It is in a nice location near the custom house and shops and the pier in Salem. The food was very good and the service excellent. I had a Blue Crab martini that consisted of tasty large pieces of crab with a delicious topping. Large selection of beer, wine and mixed... More

we liked the fact it had "on the water" outdoor seating, so we stopped in. The beautiful weather lent to a superlative lunch and a lazy conversation of Salem. Great food and service was the topping to a great time.

We were in town for the weekend, so we took advantage of the Sunday brunch. They really put out the full spread from eggs and sausage to lunch entrees to oysters and pastries/desserts. For those of us who don't want to gorge until our Easter baskets burst, there is no way we are going to eat $40 worth of food.... More

The food and atmosphere were both wonderful. Four of us dined here and the service was very good. Everyone enjoyed the meals and we left feeling full and satisfied.
