This resturant is for sale!! Hope some one buys it and continues the tradition. Maybe with a new menu!! Everything is fried. Does not accommodate for allergies or other dietary restrictions. But, great fries cod, french fries, hush puppies. And always fun for the grandchildren.

Fin Inn is always a great place to eat and relax. It's always fun to sit by the fish tanks and enjoy a meal. The food is delicious and the prices are great. You get a lot for your money. Fritters are delicious!!
