We went on a warm fall day in early October. The crowds on the island were gone, so we were seated immediately, outside, & had very attentive service. You can view the ferries coming and going if you sit outside. I started with steamed little necks, & they were great. Then had the fried clam bellies, & they were delicious.... More

On our last evening on BI, we were looking for a spot to go to after dinner with underage children (we vacationed with extended family). Finn's was just the spot. We listened to live music and enjoyed adult & children's drinks.

We had the smoked bluefish pate, which was out of this world. My wife had grilled swordfish and I had steamed lobster. Both dishes were outstanding especially the swordfish. Prices are very reasonable.

My wife and I ate lunch on the upper deck overlooking the old harbor on Block Island and was able to see the ferries some and go. This is another restaurant that serves locally harvested seafood. I had the cull lobster dinner: a cull lobster is one that is not perfect, e.g., one claw is smaller than the other, and... More

We were on the hunt for a sweet sit down space, which had lobster and crab rolls! And this was the spot. Delicious, Comfy, friendly staff 7 service, and an easy sit down spot in the middle of the day, while looking for gallery art, the bookstore and shopping!

The service was good but the quality of the food is below poor. Even though the fish and seafood we ordered were deeply fried my partner and I suffered from the effects of food poisoning. And we were not the only ones. A customer sitting at a nearby table complained that the fish he ordered tasted like it was not... More

Spent the day touring this lovely beach town. After touring Abram's Animal farm, we picked Finn's for lunch. Started with a wonderful Island Mary which was just so refreshing. Not to mention the steamed shrimp that surrounded the glass. The shrimp was tasty and loaded with wonderful slaw and fries. Pleasant server to boot, sorry I can't remember her name.... More

We are here twice on our Block Island visit. Kids' meals were good and decently priced. Clam chowder wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. Clam strip roll was good. Perfect for a family that doesn't want to sit in a fancy, expensive restaurant with kids. You can order at the window and then sit at a table,... More

We sat on 2nd floor overlooking the ferry landing. The fried Fisherman's platter for $23.95, included a nice piece of cod, scallops, shrimp, whole belly clams and clients slaw & fries. The serving of clams is very generous especially given that whole belly clams go for a premium. Food was hot & delicious. We enjoyed watching the activity in the... More

Not fine dining but if fried seafood is what you're in the mood for it satisfies the craving. Our waitress was friendly and quick.
