A warm sunny day in the winter? Had to head to Finz. The outside deck was open and no better place to have afternoon coctails, both the shrimp and alcohol variety. Our waiter was the best, Wish I could remember his name( could of been the cocktails)!

The show was great! The buffet not so great considering the cost of it. Pretty expensive and the food was not that good.

Finz is right on the water, open year round. We were seated right away on a Friday night. The waitress was great and the service was excellent. The appetizers came as soon as we ordered them. Highly would recommend the calamari and the fried oysters. They were fresh and cocked to perfection. The salmon was delicious. Can't wait to go... More

Visited while attending a comedy festival, which was great. The atmosphere was nice, the staff were friendly, and the food was good (as a vegetarian, I can't really comment on anything other than the appetizer).

Blustery but sunny day, Finz opened at 1130 for lunch. No crowds and we has waterfront views. The menu allowed for mix and match, but it took us a long time. Excellent clam chowder and healthy baby kale salad with goat cheese. On the pricey side for lunch, no accompanying bread. Locals seemed to be around in the winter (I... More

We were seated right away on a Friday evening with the reservation we made. Waiter was attentive yet not lurking. Most of us ordered the swordfish with various preparation. All of the orders were correct, and the fish was very fresh. Several had the chowder which they liked. We also had an assortment of desserts, all were tasty. When we... More

The food is bomb, the service is nice. The view is romantic if that is what you are looking for. You like oysters? They got em. It is a great place with nice atmosphere. You will enjoy it. A little pricy but we'll worth it. Treat yo self!

Recently had lunch here. Started off with their calamari, Rhode Island Style, which was fantastic, but then it went down hill. The Filet of Sole was good. Mashed potatoes and veggies were barely hot. No dinner rolls - never got the chance to ask. My friend had the Fried Haddock - which was good. All in all really not worth... More

We had not been to Finz in a while and had dinner there on a Friday evening. Finz was always a good spot but they have really turned it up a notch with some new dishes. The drinks at Finz are some of the best in town, the bartenders actually know how to make a good cocktail. The top shelf... More
