Description: Fin,chef owned and located in the heart of Dennis Village, serves creative, contemporary seafood and more. We feature the best in locally sourced food including oysters from Dennis and produce, in season, from numerous farms across the Cape like CapeAbilities, Surrey Farm and Cape Cod Organics. We are on 6A in a 200 plus year old house with dining up and downstairs and conveniently next door to the Cape Playhouse complex. The menu changes seasonally to showcase the areas offerings and while our focus is primarily on seafood we also offer organic beef and poultry.

“Fabulous Contemporary Seafood Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2012

Finally . . . a restaurant in Dennis worthy of repeat visits! Lovely setting that's comfortable but not fussy. But it's the food that will keep us coming back.

The four of us thoroughly enjoyed the contemporary, tasty preparations using fresh, local ingredients including yummy, briny Dennis oysters. From the raw oysters and the tasty oyster chowder to the perfectly grilled sea scallops and meltingly tender beef cheeks to the scrumptious but not overly heavy tiramisu bittersweet torte and a macadamia nut coconut tart . . . everything was so very yummy!!

Service had just the right amount of attentiveness and the wines were reasonably priced.

“Outstanding!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

We finally made it to this local hot spot and were so pleased with our dining experience. The food was very creative, not only in the presentation, but also in the ingredients. Each item on the menu was different than the next, with some using local ingredients. All three of us had different entrees and desserts and all of them were phenomenal.
The service was excellent and the atmosphere was nice and cozy in a modern setting.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone on the Cape, even if you live out of town I would make the trip, it's fantastic!

“Top Notch Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

Excellent food! Waitstaff hovered a bit and the meal was sort of rushed. Pick the ground floor for dining if you have a choice.

“Excellent Food, Well Presented”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Had a great first time at Fin. We stopped in when our usual spot was closed for the month. We knew the chef before and indeed were not disappointed with our meal. Menu items were unique and we knew we were in for a good meal when we saw how well the salads were plated. I had baby greens with blood orange and radish salad and it was fine. For an entree I had the swordfish which was also presented quite nicely. The fish was very moist and done perfectly. For desert, we shared the Tiramisu which was excellent. The prices were a bit high and the wine was a little over priced which added to the bottom line. I would suggest reservations as this is becoming a popular fine dining destination. We will definitely return and see if the menu changes with the seasons.

“Very good menu and a cozy ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

My wife and I made a reservation for Valentine's and brought another couple with us. This was our second visit. At the first, we sat in the bar room and had appetizers. This visit was very rewarding. Nine appetizers and nine entrees from which to choose, mostly seafood. Among the appetizers, the Yellow Fin Tuna Tartar looked beautiful and tasted better. My Nauset mussels were nice, and the resulting broth wonderful. For entrees, the other three had Grilled Atlantic Swordfish, and I had the wonderful Duck Breast w/ Herb Spaetzle and finely shredded Savoy Cabbage. The swordfish was crisp on the outside and moist inside. The duck was medium rare, as ordered, and delicious between the spaetzle & cabbage. All in all, a very good evening. Pleasingly, there was no "special" Valentine's offering. This is a small restaurant; I think reservations are essential, given the quality of the place.
