Had the swordfish. Just perfect. Food is outstanding but service is a little slow.Parking can be a pain as it is in the back and is tight.

Went to Fins and Tails with a large group that was in town for work. Fins and Tails was great and took care of everyone. Food was fantastic. I didn't hear a complaint from anyone in my group. They were accommodating in breaking checks down individually. Portions were large and appropriately cooked for our group. I would highly recommend.

Been here a few times recently with friends, and the food quality and service were very good each time. The location doesn't seem to indicate a "nice restaurant" but we have always been quite happy and satisfied after dining there. Fish items are especially done well. Great "local" dine out option!

We discovered this place after the best chef of Worcester event. The wait staff was pleasant and engaging, the menu suggested a great dining experience. We ordered the French onion soup, while tasty, it was room temperature at best. The entrées...baked stuffed haddock, were well prepared, but the stuffing was dry and lacked flavor. The lobster mac & cheese was... More

Went to Fins and Tails as an office holiday party held in January. I at first thought our problems were a result of being a group of 12 people, but then it occurred to me that the rest of the restaurant was COMPLETELY EMPTY except for us. We had looked at a menu online prior to our choosing the restaurant,... More

Look, you better be hungry if you order an appetizer, a salad, and an entrée. One person ain't gonna eat all that. Holy smokes, my wife and I ate there on New Year's Eve, and we both got appetizers; me the fried oysters and her the mussels in dijonaisse cream sauce. Big 'ol platter, heaped with mussels swimming in that... More

I learned not to judge a book by it's cover. The restaurant is located in a building that doesn't scream come eat here. We parked on the street and when we went into the building it took us a few seconds to figure out the door. Once we walked in we found a very nice environment. We were seated immediately.... More

So listed as an American public, this is much more! Nestled just off southbridge town center in a non description old building the entrance is a bit hard to locate at first. The feel is like pub when you first walk in but once the food is viewed and better yet experienced you are in no pub. A balanced menus... More
