After receiving a contest award for a free meal, I took a friend (who happened to be a local executive chef within the Tidewater area) to enjoy this new restaurant. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere quaint and the service impeccable. He also gives it a very high rating. Try it out for yourself. Enjoy!

Ben and Mrs Too had preselected Fin for our second lunch in Newport News, and were very much encouraged when our new friend Dia at the Visitor Center endorsed it enthusiastically. Ben had a grand time, and eagerly set about photo-documenting this neat place and some of its staffers. Surprisingly, as well as quite rarely, Mrs Too was much less... More

Fin Seafood is a restaurant that I had been meaning to return to. It had been three years since I was last there. A friend and I dropped in for a late lunch. It was just as I recalled, relaxed with great food, wine pairings and desert to top things off. I was impressed with how the food was prepared.... More

We were three very happy patrons who departed a mid-week lunch at Fin Seafood. Happy from having just enjoyed a variety of perfectly prepared and pleasingly presented seafood. My soft shells were fresh and delicious, the she crab soup outstanding, and the bread pudding warm and oh so good. Others at our table were delighted with their choices which included... More

Usually one of my favorite spots. However, our latest experience was disappointing. We were there for an early dinner at the beginning of the week and they were out of the foie gras appetizer and the Lima Beans that accompany the crab. We had the soft shell and crab cake combo and would not order the soft shells again. Very... More

Was looking for really good seafood. Not fried from a chain. This spot really hit the mark. All fresh and delicious. Crab cake sandwich and gazpacho both flavorful and artfully presented. Nice quiet atmosphere and good service. If I am in the area again would definitely go back

The food is very good to excellent but as to value that is another story. Maybe I am not enough of a "foodie" so you will have to be the judge. I have not seen these prices since I dined at The Atlas at the St. Regis Hotel in Atlanta so to compare "apples to apples" I expect the fine... More
