I love Finn's for the music! They have a beautiful big patio area and get some amazing local bands like Sound Investment and Back Bay Betty. Have a drink, a meal and then rock out on the dance floor!

If you want good fresh fried fish - this is the place. The generous portion of fish and chips comes with a cup of pretty decent clam chowder or a nice green salad. AND, if you want to limit the "fried" portion of the meal,...More

I went to Fins because I saw it as I drove up to look at the beach. It was a Friday morning and I was mostly alone in the restaurant. I had clam chowder (delicious) and fish and chips. They were wonderful, hot and moist.

Decided to go out on a Thursday, and we went to Fin's. It's seriously the perfect place for a kick-back, good food, drinks and having fun place. Every time we are there, we always end up talking to other diners. It's a very friendly place!!...More

The fried fish and chips were terrible. Fish was tough, batter awful. Clam chowder was fair. Total price for lunch with soda was $20. Way to high.

Trash found in my salad, salad was less than fresh and basic but a generous portion. Shrimp was smaller than most places and breading was bland. Fries were clearly frozen.

I don't know what oil(s) they use. TripAdvisor is a site to post visitors' opinions of service and/or goods received. You should call Carlos at Fin's directly. He is very personable and can tell you exactly what they use in... More

Happy Hour is 4 until closing...quite lovely, yes? The weather has been sunny and warm, and I cannot remember what is on the appetizer menu, but know you will easily find something tasty at a good price.
