My husband, son and I went to the FIN Bar last Friday night and it was great. We ordered everything on the menu but the meat entree. The smoked carrots were fabulous as well as the lobster roll. We also had the steamed lobster, tuna...More

We loved the lobster surf and turf! Very friendly staff and great service. We were fortunate to try this before they were said to close for the season!

We met some friends for dinner the other night and it became clear that even though the restaurant was definitely not full, something was wrong. There was simply not enough staff either in the restaurant itself nor in the kitchen. We waited a long time...More

What's not to like??? We sat outside on a picnic table that offered sun or shade; the service was quick; the scenery unbelievable and the food (fish tacos) exceptional. We will definitely be back - by boat and car.

You can enjoy your food directly over the water. At sundown the view is spectacular. The food is good and service very good. Prices are Ok
