I'm surprised that no one mentioned the steep stairs that lead up to the dining area from the front door and down from the exit door to the parking area. There was no wait to get in and the meals came quickly. The food was ok. It is Lent and I really enjoy the cod at our church fish fry... More

The food at the Fin Inn is decent, but not spectacular. They have lots of fried seafood items and some burgers. The prices are pretty good. If you are there when they offer an all-you-can-eat meal skip that. The catfish they offer are small bone-in fish with lots of breading and little meat. Go for a filet instead. Try the... More

This is our second visit to this quaint restaurant. We each had a different entree. The restaurant has aquariums at each booth and you can watch fish swim as you dine.

I had a couple of visitors from Michigan come and visit. We went out to lunch here. We received a lot of food for the price. We tried frog legs and turtle soup and all of us loved it! The staff was friendly as well! The tanks of fish and turtles were amazing too and our fish were very entertaining... More

What a great place to eat seafood or whatever type of food you might enjoy. Every booth has a huge fish tank at the end of it and there's all types of fish and sea turtles in them! It's wonderful for families, couples, and friends. The seafood was superb!!! I had halibut grilled since I do not eat any type... More

Stopped in recently on a Saturday afternoon. The place was packed. The staff handled the crowd well and did good job of getting of our food out in a timely fashion. And of course we went to a fish place to get bugers. Good old fashioned double cheeseburger with a generous portion of fries.

If you like to eat fish, this is the place to go in Grafton. Turtle soup, catfish and other fried fish meals are served in a unique atmosphere with aquariums at most table. We've eaten here before, and generally enjoy it. Be prepared to wait 30 minutes or more for a table. And while the food is good, the service... More

We have been here a number of times over the years, and it remains a great destination! The fish is always good and so is everything else. The portions are large and we never leave hungry. There is an aquarium at the end of many of the tables with native turtles and fish. A unique experience that one never forgets!
