My linguini with shrimp. OMG DELISH! The service was amazing and fast and she always came by to make sure we were... More

the fish was fresh and delicious!! The portions were great and the sides were delicious. Our server was fun and courteous and efficient. Service was excellent. He helped us with local attractions and fun things to do for the afternoon. Clean and comfortable and quiet. Great value for your money. Many choices on the menu.

Finz has great seafood but the butternut squash soup is fantastic! Oh and if you like Guinness Stout you will enjoy the Boston Irish Harpoon Stout. Much smoother tasting! Will visit here again and try their award winning entrees!

Stopped here for a late lunch on New Year's Eve. We ordered a bottle of Elk Cove Pinot Gris and shared an appetizer of fried oysters, which were delicious. I ordered the grilled salmon, served with roasted potatoes, broccoli, and field greens. This was also another delicious dish! My husband had the haddock, which he liked very much. Service was...

A little hard to find if your not a local but well worth the search. We had the Buffalo calamari and clam chowder to start...both were outstanding. Our main meals were the lobster stuffed Haddock and the Sea Scallops and both meals were also outstanding. Service was fast and courteous and the drinks were reasonable and well poured.....Another great place... More

While visiting the area over the weekend and a trip to the PEM...we made an early evening stop for dinner afterward. Being a very cold evening in Dec...and this being a waterfront restaurant...we didn't expect much in the way of a busy spot. When we first arrived it was very quiet and we were given a nice window seat....but before... More

Shared New England lobstah with some wonderful friends from the south. The food was amazing as was the service. Ordered buffalo calamari as an appetizer and it simply melted in my mouth. If you are in Salem Mass, this restaurant should not be missed.

Great location but we missed sunset, fish special was mouthwatering and excellent. The clam chowder was some of the best I've had
