As ever, the food was fantastic and the staff did a wonderful job under difficult circumstances. We felt very comfortable with the spacing of the tables and the staff wearing masks properly. I particularly appreciated that our server paid me (the female in the party) as much attention as my male date. Even in 2020, that rarely happens. Kudos to GW's!

First time at GW Fins was a great experience all around. Drinks, biscuits, lobster dumplings and fish selections were amazing! Brenda and the whole staff were fantastic, especially during these odd COVID times (social distance, masks, and clean). We look forward to coming back and trying other menu items.

I wish I could give them a 6th star. This is by far my favorite dining experience since the restaurants reopened in May. The tables are well spaced and they followed all the guidelines, but you don't feel isolated from the world when you're seated. As always, the staff was very attentive and it was the closest thing I've had to a "normal" dining experience since early March. I can't wait to go back!

Completely unacceptable that you could book on OpenTable and when you arrive the restaurant is closed. This pandemic has been going on for months. It’s ridiculous that you treat the clients who want to support you in this manner. You don’t even check on your online reservations to make sure that it’s all disconnected to not deceive people.
