service sucked.. food was ok to good.. could use improvements but would return

first of all.. only two choices of lobster.. chicken lobster and 3 lbs... they really need a few more choices. I took the stuffed while my date went for the steamed. The fried calamari was okay.. BUT they came out super greasy. I guess the server was oblivious as to how to serve it. Any side... read more

Came here for another of our business dinners and loved the food, service and overall experience. Also a great setting and view being located on the water. Can't wait to get a chance to come back!

Very disappointed with this restaurant after reading the reviews here. Maybe we got them on a bad day but the service was incredibly slow. We made a reservation ahead of time and were able to be seated outside. We were sitting for 15 minutes and finally went over to the hostess to tell her that we had not at all... More

You would think because it was almost impossible to find parking this place would be incredible. Nope.... It was average at best. Our daughter wanted to sit outside. We had reservations, but was told by the hostess desk that we had to go outside and talk with the staff outside to see if they had anything available and that they... More

Finz, on the water in Salem, is one of those restaurants that it never makes sense to have anything other than seafood. My wife and I have been going to Finz in Salem for for several years now and have always been thrilled with our food and our service. We often bring friends and family.

The clam chowder was the best I've ever had! Lobster mac and cheese is something that everyone must try.

It was very nice to sit outside on the deck overlooking the water and boats. Our waiter was very pleasant. We had the Fried Haddock plate. The Haddock was nice and hot and tasty, coleslaw very good, however, the fries were not hot and not as fresh as we would have liked them to be. Enjoyed a nice glass of... More

If you need a reason to come to Salem, this is it. I would have to rate this as one of the best restaurants I have been to in the past 3 decades! This might be the second best meal we ever had after our 10-course Kaiseki dinner one New Years Eve atop the Nikko Hotel in SF some 25... More
