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

Salem isn't exactly a culinary hotspot, so Finz is probably a good bet given the other restaurants in the area (so far as I have been able to figure out). The raw oysters were very fresh, and the tuna tartare was too. Fish stew was pretty mediocre.

My wife and I had lunch here recently. I had scallops serves on a salad and my wife had fish and chips. The food was good at a fair price, not memorable. The restaurant is on the water and a beautiful location.

Typical wharf restaurants among others on the docks of Salem. We went for lunch on a Saturday and most restaurants had special pricing and were busy. Finz had no specials of any consequence in either prices or meals. The food was average and like any you could find anywhere. We had four different dishes in our party to include a... More

There's not one single thing to dislike about this place. The hostess and the waitresses are very helpful and friendly, which I liked a lot. I tried their lobster ravioli and the taste simply melted me on the spot! The salad was delicious and then tried the a cocktail of rye whisky and muddled figs and it was superb! All... More

We enjoyed a quite lunch down by the harbour in Salem. The fresh fish was wonderful. If you aren't a fish lover don't worry, (don't get me wrong I love fish), I enjoyed the baked goat cheese for appetizer and Arugula Salad with a hint of Vanilla dressing. There is parking right by the Restaurant. Enjoy a little exercise after... More
