    We really enjoyed lunch on the outside deck overlooking the marina. It wasn't crowded when we arrived, and our server was great. She gave us recommendations, and the oysters on the half she'll she suggested were plump and delicious. The lobster rolls were fantastic. We both had a great time and would definitely suggest Finz to others.

    Finz never disappoints - great menu, fantastic seafood. Anything you order you can be sure it will be delicious. Try the black mule drink, it's a sweet twist on a Moscow mule, served in a copper cup.

    We were at this location of Finz, while our son was at a local event. Love, the area, where you can walk around afterwards. They sat us right away, in a table with a view. menu looked good. we each had a salad, then fish, of course. good size portions. the waitress was personable, and just attentive enough. food was served, not rushed, but just the right timeframe. we enjoyed our meal, and if in the area, would go back.

  • Consistently Great Seafood
    Eastcoastvisitor
    Dined on 8/27/2014
    We come to Finz quite a bit when we're in the mood for great seafood. We almost always get the fish tacos or the black and white sesame tuna, both of which are consistently terrific. The menu has a ton a variety, and there are many classic local favorites as well as more unique choices. Finz is a great family restaurant (not necessarily for young kids), can accommodate large groups, has a large bar and bar seating and a fairly substantial covered outdoor dining space. The dining room is nicely done, albeit a bit boring. Given that it's large and open, it can get a bit loud depending on the time when you are there.

    Loved sitting outside looking at boas on a warm summer evening. Food, in particular, my grilled salmon, was okay. Just not great.My house salad was nothing to rave about. My husband's paella was delicious as were the fish taco's The cod seemed a bit too soupy. I just expected a bit more . Wouldn't go back to eat inside.

    My dinner selection was not served as described on the menu. When I mentioned this to the waiter,he immediately apologized and took it back to the kitchen. Another waiter returned with it, modified as much as it could be, and he also apologized and said that the meal would be comped. All in all, the food was very good, as was the service.

    I expected more. Seemed like our server just didn't care. Never checked back. Not sincere. We were done with apps before we got our drinks, not even water on table. She had 5-6 tables that I could see and she was chatting with her coworkers more than her guests. Not in any rush to return. Food for the most part was ok, chowder was bad.

    I was pleasantly surprised to get 7PM reservations on a summer Thursday evening. I was seated immediately. It seemed to be mostly a tourist crowd judging from the conversations around me. The Baked Haddock was delicious as was the Champagne Cosmo. Server was attentive. Looking forward to my next visit.

    This place might be the busiest place in Salem - we were happy that we had a reservation and got a lovely table outside on the waterfront. A small harbor with boats going in and out - the waitress was very busy but pleasant and we enjoyed the lobster roll and salads. Noisy but nice.

    A dear friend recommended Finz for my husband's birthday celebration, and we were wowed! Brian, Finz's manager, graciously changed our reservation time, our waitperson was warm and attentive, and the sumptuous appetizers and entrees were a feast for the eyes and the palate! Our sea scallops with gnocchi and fisherman's stew were loaded with flavor, and the portions were generous. Finz loves creating and serving delicious food and loves its customers. We love this restaurant, and plan to dine here whenever we visit Woburn and Boston.

    My wife and I had heard a lot about Finz. We ate outdoors which was very nice. Out Severer was excellent and received a good tip. I had a Gin and Tonic and the Tonic had a funny bite to it. (I actually ordered a second one thinking that maybe was me, but the second drink was the same.) I had the Grilled Trout which was a Special and it was terribly dried out. My wife had a Dish with rice and Seafood. She said that the Seafood was good., but the rice was Mushy. We were expecting better and probably won't be back

    Went for lunch with a group of 6. We arrived early and were seated immediately. We chose to sit outside which was very nice and our waitress was excellent. Three people in our party chose the blue crab sandwich and they all said it was excellent. The lobster roll was ok as were the seared scallops. This restaurant is in a lovely area where you can take a stroll after your meal and checkout the beautiful harbor. If you're going for lunch I would recommend going a little early. Salem does have a lot of tourist traffic but since we arrived before noon parking was easy by the time we left a few hours later there was not a space to be found.
