Consistent high quality seafood

Comfortable seating and harbor views add to the joy of eating delicious New England seafood. Cooked to order, baked, broiled or fried in gourmet sauces or simply seasoned, you can enjoy small plates or large for lunch or dinner. Definitely Finz is one of Salem's best restaurants.

Finz is always a favorite - a nice large bar area with high tables, restaurant tables inside and out on the deck as well. There's also a comfortable couch area. Food is a bit pricey but well done and presented well.

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
