Have been here many times. Love the view of the beach from our table. Their appetizers are great. Even the Happy Hour appetizer's are large. Had some wonderful coconut shrimp. They have good nachos and shrimp cocktail. Their fish and chips are also delicious. Like their clam chowder better than at a couple of other restaurants. Can't brag enough about... More

Happened by on a beautiful crisp January evening after visiting the Butterfly Grove up the road. Fin'sis just off the beach with an outdoor patio perfect for watching sunset. Happy hour wine and sunset with very friendly staff. Great food, fantastic location! You can drive down on the beach!

I love Finn's for the music! They have a beautiful big patio area and get some amazing local bands like Sound Investment and Back Bay Betty. Have a drink, a meal and then rock out on the dance floor!

If you want good fresh fried fish - this is the place. The generous portion of fish and chips comes with a cup of pretty decent clam chowder or a nice green salad. AND, if you want to limit the "fried" portion of the meal, you can substitute - ask for fish with the cup of clam chowder and a... More

I went to Fins because I saw it as I drove up to look at the beach. It was a Friday morning and I was mostly alone in the restaurant. I had clam chowder (delicious) and fish and chips. They were wonderful, hot and moist.

Our dinners were large portions, presentation beautiful and great tasting. Off season, raining great time to have a fabulous fresh fish dinner. Alexis, has a beautiful smile & personality - especially when... More

Decided to go out on a Thursday, and we went to Fin's. It's seriously the perfect place for a kick-back, good food, drinks and having fun place. Every time we are there, we always end up talking to other diners. It's a very friendly place!! We had the appetizer platter and munched on calamari strips and mozzarella sticks and fries... More

The fried fish and chips were terrible. Fish was tough, batter awful. Clam chowder was fair. Total price for lunch with soda was $20. Way to high.

Trash found in my salad, salad was less than fresh and basic but a generous portion. Shrimp was smaller than most places and breading was bland. Fries were clearly frozen.
