“Finz in Salem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is a nice restaurant on Pickering Wharf. It has a nice view of the harbor marina. They have an extensive menu with lobsters and fresh fish. There is outside and inside seating. I was eating solo but did not feel that I was ignored because my tip would be smaller. They have a very large bar area. The restaurant was very busy and the noise level was quite high.

“Excellent food & live music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The restorant is on water, located in the tourist part of Salem. The service is great and they serv fast. I love their fried oysters and buffalo calamari. Parking can be a problem, it gets crowded in the summer.

“Highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We really enjoyed our experience at this restaurant. The views are great, as are the food, drinks and service. The bartender was really nice and we sat next to some friendly people as we waited for our table. The blood orange margarita was delicious and completely refreshing. A nice selection of beer on draft also. Our meals were excellent and the fish was so fresh and flavorful. We would definitely go back.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

In my opinion, Finz is the best of the higher end restaurants in Salem. The food is always fresh and delicious, the atmosphere is comfortable and the service is good. I ate here on my birthday and couldn't have been happier.

“Nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The reviews we read were glowing, but the dinner was just OK and the prices too high. No problem with the service, but the food was not special, which, given the competition in Salem, is surprising.
