We visited Finz today for lunch with 4 adults and 3 kids. Nobody was disappointed. The seafood was fresh, cooked to perfection and delicious. Everyone wants to go back. The wait staff were all personable and efficient. A definite favorite with the first visit.

Was not happy with the service, had to ask for refills. The sodas were low on sugar (too much seltzer water vs flavor). Even had them replace the original sprite because it was only seltzer. We hoped this wasn't a bad forecast for the food,...More

Great place if you like seafood! Service was good, but the food was the best. A little pricey but worth it for a nice quality dinner.

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.

No, Salem has plenty of street parking spots where the restaurant is located, but this is very busy area with other shops and restaurants, so it may be hard to find a spot close to the restaurant.
