We walked in on a Saturday night before Mother's Day and had immediate seating. There was a musician playing keyboards in the lounge who was quite entertaining while we were eating.

The Hawaiin Poke appetizer was different than true Hawaiin style, but I would argue that Fin's makes it better. Fin's cuts the ahi into smaller pieces and does not use as much brown sauce for flavoring. The ahi was served on cucumber, which really made a great combination. The quality of the fish was great. Highly recommended appetizer.

The lobster mashed potatoe is served as a side, but it should be ordered to share. Of all things, this was the culinary highlight of my trip the Glenwood Springs. The combination of bits of lobster within the mashed potatoe was fantastic.

For entrees we ordered the Grouper and the Mahi tacos. I would have enjoyed the tacos much more if the fish had not been fried. Otherwise, the quality and presentation of the food was very good (see pictures).

Our server was very attentive, but there weren't many other people in the restaurant.

Just the best. We live in Boston and it is hard to impress us with seafood. Service wonderful. Food great. Not cheap, but so worth the money.

Finns is the BEST all around Restaurant in Glenwood Spgs. Excellent choices from very affordable delicious meals to the Top 5 star dining choices for the finely tuned pallet. Everytime I am in Glenwood for business or pleasure I have my meal at Finns. The food is fantastic with daily specials from Surf and Turf to the Freshest Fish flown in daily. Crab Night and Music night are a favorate and the service from all the staff is top notch. I've eaten at all the Restaurants in town and for a Great all around experience its Finns for me!

Fins is a regular stop for us, on a trip to visit the hot springs, we stopped at Fins for dinner. We decided on ordering appetizers to share. We had mussels, Ahi tuna, escargot and they were all fantastic. Fresh bread is also served and we dipped it in the creamy sauce from the mussels, so amazing. We have ordered the Kobe burger and other dishes since our first trip and the meals are always delicious. We make at least one or two trips a year to Glenwood, we look forward to dining at Fins as much as soaking in the hot spring pool. The staff is friendly and we have a great time. Can't wait to go back!

The restaurant is tucked under an overpass but the interior is tastefully decorated. We were there on a relatively empty evening with only one other couple so we had a lot of attention from wait-staff. We also had live music - which is to say a guy at a keyboard playing sort of lounge lizard music...soundtrack of drums provided by his iPod. It was more humorous than anything but with the wine we didn't care. The food was yummy (don't bother with crab cakes but calamari was superb). It is pricey though.
