Wonderful food, wonderful ocean breezes, wonderful view. Finn's never fails to satisfy whether you are looking for a delicious meal, helpful and friendly staff, or relaxing and enjoyable views. They never flinched when we walked up with 17 people and no reservation either! (and even...More

I've only been once and I don't expect to go back again. Finn's seemed to be coasting on it's location near the harbor with water views but you can easily get better views and/or better food with a few minutes walking. The stuffies didn't have...More

Always thought this was one of the best seafood restaurant on the island. No longer. Clam chowder was luke warm just like last year. Grilled fish sandwich had small and very thin piece of fish. Service OK but only OK. Too bad. This place used...More

After a chaotic seating from some frazzled front of house, we ordered the French onion soup and split a twin lobster. Instead of the soup coming out first, it arrived 5 minutes before the lobsters. You couldn't get a better French onion soup in a...More
