The food was great even though three people in our party wanted the tuna burger only to be told it no longer offered (If its not offered don't put it on the menu). We had great seared tuna and pealla.
The waitress forgot our water then forgot us as we had to ask another waiter to finally take the bill for processing. Maybe the waitress was covering too many tables.

Had dinner at Finz. Lots of restaurants on the wharf but this was the only one with outside seating and a view of the small Marina. We went native and had seafood. We split the fried clams and each had a Crab Cake. All was excellent. Service outstanding. All around us people seemed satisfied and the restaurant seemed well run

This restaurant was recommend by our docent at the House of Seven Gables. The clam chowder was very good, as well as the oysters. Beer was cold and the wait staff was very attentive.

Stopped in for lunch while touring Salem. Great location and view from the outdoor seating, service was okay, menu was nothing spectacular. Baked scrod was a bit overlooked and borderline crispy, crab cake sandwich was fine, good amount of crab, cole slaw was bland. Didn't bother to try dessert. If not for the location, I wouldn't consider this a must do.

Went to Finz after a great boat ride around Salem Harbor. Sat at a window seat which made for great ambiance. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful in choosing the dishes to order. I began with clam chowder which was a hefty portion, and quite tasty. The best part of the meal was the entrees. My husband got clams with linguini which was superb. I got fish tacos which consisted of 3 big tacos, very fresh battered haddock and excellent corn salsa. Totally yummy. Because the portions were large we had no room for dessert. A definite go to place in Salem.
