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.

“Fin is fine, very fine”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Highly recommended, but having never been here we dined here on a Saturday evening. The decor is pleasant, but nothing out the ordinary. The food is excellent. We both had the oyster stew; it was the best we have had in a very long time and I would go back just to have it again. She had scallops and polenta, I had an herb encrusted halibut. Both were winners and merit a return visit. The dining is intimate. A woman at the table next to us managed to pick up the "silver" with her magnetic bracelet and we spoke; at the other table we could not help but overhear all about a condo complex and its residents as those two tables conversed. So if you go with your mistress, privacy will not be the order of the day. Nevertheless the meal was excellent, the atmosphere was nice, the service was superb and we will go back.

“Another great restaurant in Dennis MA”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Fin is relatively new but in an area with several great restaurants and it is as good or better than the competition! Friendly and hard-working professional staff deliver a first-class dining experience. Food is exceptional with great attention to detail and unique dishes. Deserts not to be missed. Make a reservation on their website, get there early and have a drink at the bar while watching the crowd and dishes whizzing by from the kitchen. Seating spaces are tight but the ambiance is "adult". Seafood is their specialty and it shows.

“Fabulous Fish”
Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

We enjoyed an excellent dinner at Fin. We shared a yellow fin tartare, followed by entrees of grilled Atlantic salmon and pan seared bay scallops. Fin knows fish, perfectly cooked with interesting accompaniments. Restaurant can be a little noisy. Reservations definitely a must.

“Food and staff both delightful”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

When we visit the Cape, we really want to take advantage of fresh seafood and Fin is the ideal spot for that. I am hard to please on chowders and their homemade oyster chowder is outstanding - also the crab cake with black truffle pecorino is fantastic. Salmon, swordfish, day boat scallops, bouillabaisse - the entree choices are just what we were looking for. And nothing is fried or comes with french fries - what a relief from the usual seafood restaurant fare! If you want high end seafood carefully prepared with helpful and attentive service, Fin is the place to go.
Tip-
Don't be reluctant to sit in the small bar area at the high tops or at the bar. Service there is just as good as the rest of the restaurant, just a little more casual. Do reserve ahead - we tried 5 days in advance for a Saturday night and could not get in.
