Absolutely horrible , dozen oysters came out covered in yellow slime and absolutely pungent smell , chilli mussels where covered in what can only believe to be black and gold ketchup and served on a paper plate , dining u would expect in a third world country , owners need to have a good long look at them selves and perhaps use the place for over flow parking for the mini golf next door !

We went here with a group!

OmG it was disgusting!
We ordered fish n chips, mussels and oysters, it made me sick just looking at the food and it tasted even worst than it looked.

Simple DO NOT EVER EAT HERE

Oysters clovered is slime with a terrible smell which we did not even eat.

We had read some good and bad reviews but decided to give it a go. You really cant complain about the service - there is none. The cashier taking orders and payment is SO unfriendly, couldn't even manage a smile. They weren't busy as the dinner rush was over yet we still waited an hour and 10 minutes for our food. The kids were staving and it become a joke between tables as to who would get food before the dropped down, We waited in anticipation for this great meal that had kept us waiting. Eventually we were called to fetch our food, everyone cheered. :( :( My scotch fillet was totally tasteless and the french fries were dry and tough like last weeks oven fries. My hubby and son said their calamari rings tasted like the box ones in the supermarket freezers and they didn't even touch the prawns as they had not even been cleaned, still had the poop tube. Never going back - the take away fish & shop in the main street cost half the price and had lovely fresh tasty food with freshly fried chips. We're not sure how anyone can say the food was good. And since our meal everyone we bumped into said the same....................if only we had known before, we would not have gone.

I had dinner here recently with a few good friends but unfortunately the reputation did not live up to its reputation at all. We arrived and the atmosphere was fantastic. We ordered our meals at the tilt, paid and then waited for our meals for ever - over three hours! Thank God they had the boring salad bar and we came with a great bunch of friends. The team was not very helpful nore enthusiastic about service, this goes for the service team, the supervisor as well as the two cooks - very unfriendly indeed.
Once the meals arrived quality was all over the place. I ordered the fish & chips and received two pieces of fish. One piece was ok, the other one was a complete let down. The same happened to the rest of the group. The place in itself is great, fantastic setup, casual & fun but the crew is a problem!

Finlays was hyped to us as "the best seafood on the west coast". I couldn't disagree more. Very average food, poor, unwelcoming service. All the ambience of an op shop.
