Have always enjoyed our dinners and evenings here, and it did not disappoint as usual. Our waitress was charming and very attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and might have been the best we’ve had here. Can’t wait to return.

Our food was delicious and the service was friendly and professional. They were short-handed the night we dined, but the server and the bartender (female) did an excellent job and the wait was not long. They really hustled and we complimented both of them on their efforts. Will definitely return.

Our first visit to Fin and we were impressed! We met out of town friends who were staying in Williamsburg for dinner here as they live in Ohio and wanted fresh seafood. They both started with the she crab soup and then one had the scallops and the other had the seafood pasta. My wife started with the grilled romaine salad and had the seafood pasta as well. I began with the octopus starter and had the butter poached flounder topped with crab meat. The pasta and flounder portions were quite large and my wife had to take some of her pasta home. Service was timely and professional and all staff were friendly and accommodating. At the end of the meal, my friend said, "Great choice!" and it certainly was. Recommended!

Excellent food, and outstanding service. Wine recommendation was spot on, salad bar was fresh, meat was cooked to perfection and plentiful. We ate so much we couldn’t indulge in dessert but our water brought our a decorated plate with a candle. It’s the small touches that bring this from excellent to outstanding.

I had been to the all other boathouse locations but Hopewell definitely has the best view of them all. The wine and meals my partner and I had were incredible. My only disappointment was not being able to order a Frech 75 cocktail because the bartender nor my server were familiar with the drink.

Our server, Jared, was great. He was very familiar with the menu and made great suggestions to our entrees which enhanced our meal. My enhancement was a lobster tail and it came out very dry. I asked for it to be removed and not replaced. Jared, once he saw it had already ask for a re-fire and his manager brought a new one over. It was moist and had a smokey grill flavor and aroma. Fantastic meal!

We were in Richmond for 11 days visiting a different restaurant every night. We chose Hard Shell 2 of those nights. The shrimp and scallops were amazing. Our waiter was handling a very large group plus a couple of other tables. You could have fooled me...he treated us like we were his only table. Highly recommend.

Good is great! Daughter got the Snapper which had a beautiful presentation. Husband got the Filet which he said was excellent. Service was pretty good but waiter let us sit for about 15 minutes after we were done sitting with empty plates before he checked on us and then didn’t take any plates with him. Also forgot to bring our daughters birthday dessert. Overall we love the food here and the atmosphere is nice for a special occasion.
