Well, on a Monday night, the day before a good sized New England Nor'easter (2 feet of snow at my house), we went out to dinner a Finz and the place was basically deserted. We started with a Cosmo each ($10) and then had appetizers....More

Good seafood offerings with some particular standouts: the fantastic fried oysters appetizer with a spicy dipping sauce; the lobster ravioli, which few restaurants have on their menus; the stuffed haddock with crabmeat. Service is good; and in warm weather, the outdoor seating facing the harbor...More

FINZ is a fun place in Salem, Mass. While it is hard to appreciate the waterfront location in winter, the crowd is enough to be lively but there are no excessive waits and the service is excellent. The menu also features some unique seafood dishes....More

You'll enjoy this place if you like seafood. We went on an off-night and the service was excellent and the food very good. Awesome lobster roll! Chowder was okay but was wild about the use of seasoning.

Love the ambiance in this place, we were immediately seated at a table overlooking the water, too bad it was at night but I am sure it would be a beautiful sight. We got there a bit later in the night and only wanted some...More

Yes, on tap there was Cape Ann Reel Easy, and a couple of others. One or two in bottle, and a couple of others in cans (I remember Harpoon being one of them). Prices for IPA’s ran $5-$9.

Nope. There's little on the menu that would please the average child. Thankfully mine like mussels, so his "kid's meal" was an $18 appetizer. 😒
