The food was great even though three people in our party wanted the tuna burger only to be told it no longer offered (If its not offered don't put it on the menu). We had great seared tuna and pealla. The waitress forgot our water then forgot us as we had to ask another waiter to finally take the bill... More

Had dinner at Finz. Lots of restaurants on the wharf but this was the only one with outside seating and a view of the small Marina. We went native and had seafood. We split the fried clams and each had a Crab Cake. All was excellent. Service outstanding. All around us people seemed satisfied and the restaurant seemed well run

This restaurant was recommend by our docent at the House of Seven Gables. The clam chowder was very good, as well as the oysters. Beer was cold and the wait staff was very attentive.

Stopped in for lunch while touring Salem. Great location and view from the outdoor seating, service was okay, menu was nothing spectacular. Baked scrod was a bit overlooked and borderline crispy, crab cake sandwich was fine, good amount of crab, cole slaw was bland. Didn't bother to try dessert. If not for the location, I wouldn't consider this a must... More

Went to Finz after a great boat ride around Salem Harbor. Sat at a window seat which made for great ambiance. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful in choosing the dishes to order. I began with clam chowder which was a hefty portion, and quite tasty. The best part of the meal was the entrees. My husband got clams... More

Reservations were made well in advance for my Brothers "Out of Town'rs Brunch". They Confirmed there would be about 27of us and the arrival time. The logistics of moving the group from Various locations caused a slight delay. We called they were Great, said no problem. But when all arrived, The Restaurant had downgraded us to 25 at their discretion.... More

We had a large group of 9 with varied tastes and we were all very happy with our food selections. We had dinned here about a month ago and were very pleased then. This time our table had steamers to start and our food selections went from steak tips, to fish tacos, to enchiladas, as well as the expected sea... More

We just happened to stumble upon this restaurant on a recent visit to Salem. Loved the fact that the restaurant was right down on the waterfront. Service was fast and our waitress was very helpful and seemed to know her menu quite well. Food was very good. Everyone in our dining party (2 adults, 2 kids 11-14) enjoyed their meals.... More

had a very nice table next to the window so I could watch the boats... I ordered the stuffed haddock which was perfectly cooked along with tasty mashed potatoes and green beans cooked to perfection.
