Super service - very very friendly and accomodating. Located near the Ferry and outdoor seating is lovely. Had the mussels - big portion, small and tender - perfectly cooked and seasoned. Seven of us - seven rave reviews.

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.
