We first went to Fin's when it was newly opened and loved it. The food was exceptional and the service great. Not a large or showy restaurant, but it's the food that counts. The only problem is that others have found it and realise what a great place it is for foodies, so much so, that we couldn't get in the next few times we tried. You now need to book, and even then sometimes wait for your table.
We did get in this weekend though but at 8:30pm, which may be late for some. We still had to wait 30 minutes as they were running behind, but had fun chatting at the tables outside with Prosecco and beer with the other clientele waiting, most were celebrating their wedding anniversaries.
Our waiter was friendly and attentive and answered all my questions for a gluten free diet. The food was fresh and just as good, if not better, than I remembered it.
I'm not surprised it's been named #1 restaurant on the island, but wished it had remained a secret a little longer!

The scallops are like butter, outstanding , but make sure you ask for them as you walk in. They go fast. Service was good, very friendly environment. Average kids menu and a little crowded around the holidays.

Overall. . A+. The food was fantastic. I had the grouper, my wife had the scalops and we both had the new England chowder. All of it was fantastic. My 9 month old was yet normal loud and smiley self and the staff (not waiter) even found us a baby spoon which was awesome because we forgot on.

The only reason this is a 4 vs a 5 was the waiter, while pleasant was just ... blah. He seemed tired and unengaging. He was also SLOW

I'd go there again just plan to sit around (

I was a little unsure when I first read through the menu since none of the items sounded familiar. The four of us (all adults) each ordered different things intending to share. None of us did and there was very little left on any of our plates.

Spent a week at Marco Island Marriott. Asked the bellman where to eat locally with good, fresh, local fish. He recommended Fin's Bistro & Cafe Demarco. Arrived about 7pm & were told no openings til 8:30pm. Got reservations for next night @6:30pm. Well worth the wait! We were treated great. Waiter very helpful & attentive. Loved the wine he suggested as well as the house salad & entrees. Ordered Red Snapper served on risotto & Mahi-Mahi with mashed potatoes & cauliflower. We shared homemade berry cobbler. Tart & tasty. This is not inexpensive but nothing is on this island. We would recommend this place & return again.
