It was busy at lunch but we had reservations and were seated right away. Servers were friendly and efficient, though there was a mixup in the kitchen and one of our diners didn't get her meal served. Problem was corrected as soon as we became aware, and we were not charged for her meal. Very... read more

We sat outdoors looking at the boats and gulls and it was a lovely spot. The clam chowder was excellent. The lobster roll was good but not superb - the lobster was good but not flavorful (I had the non-mayo plain lobster broiled in butter type; the other option is like a lobster salad). It was much improved with some... More

Had lunch here. Sat by window overlooking the water. Hard to find parking in Pinkering Wharf. Bring your quarters. We had the oven roasted haddock and lobster Mac and cheese. Both were very good. Service attentive. Place was clean.

We had an enjoyable meal at Finz the other day. Nice outdoor seating by the water. Generous cocktails. Fried oysters were delicious, as was the key lime pie. Salmon special was a bit over cooked and under flavored. Service was excellent. All in all, it was one of the better meals we've had in Salem.

Was visiting friends in Salem, so we went to Finz for dinner. All that I can say was that it was excellent, reasonability priced for the quality. A person in our group didn't like seafood, so he told the waitress what he wanted and the Chef make it for him even though it wasn't on the menu! Chicken Linguine

We sat outside and enjoyed a nice lunch. We had lobster ravioli and a lobster roll. Both were yummy and had a decent amount of lobster. They didn't cheat us out of the lobster we ordered! Yum!

Finz benefits from a great location in Pickering Wharf on Salem's waterfront. The three of us picked Finz knowing it would be a very busy on a beautiful Summer Friday evening. That said, the restaurant was very busy but we were seating immediately in the less popular inside dining-room. The service was okay but certainly reflected the busy Friday night... More

I had heard good things about this restaurant which is located on the wharf so we thought we would try it out. We sat on the deck and the service was slow which is not usually a good indication of things to come. The menu prices are not bad for a resort area (low - mid 20's) for most entree's... More

Excellent service, wonderful food and a diverse menu. We sat out on the back deck and enjoyed the sunset while we shared some excellent wine. The paella was one of the best I've had. We loved dining at Finz and hope to return the next time we are in town. Highly recommended!
