“What Do You Recommend? Cricket Cricket”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Heard so many great things about Fins, but I wasn't impressed with the food as much as I was with Jake's. I ordered an appetizer, salad and entree. I asked the person answering the phone for suggestions, and was very disappointed they couldn't recommend anything and didn't know the menu. What a shame. Nothing I ate made me want to place another order. It was just average. Maybe they are better known for their ales and raw bar but based on first impressions I will never know.

“The outside draws you inside.”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Is there any reason that we would be seated next to the wall and the kitchen in this empty Restaurant? Maybe a green Hostess? It was early on St Patrick's Day? The Beer selection is fantastic and the raw bar great. Our food showed up at our table luke warm and there was only one other couple here.
Getting another beer was a challenge but after flagging down the Bartender that was no longer a problem. I'm sure on a saturday night in the summer they have great staff and the food is hot when brought to your table but not the night we visited. I would try this place again and give it a second shot if only because of the beer selection.

“Overpriced, Understaffed, Extremely Noisy”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

The restaurant was full. It's still fairly new so perhaps locals are still flocking here to give it a try. It was just about impossible to hear the other people at our table without screaming. There is no thought given to using materials to help soften the din.

The prices reflect a gourmet restaurant but it is in no way gourmet. Foods that should be hot were warm. Foods that should be cold were close to room temperature.

Our waiter, who made a gallant effort, was overwhelmed. At least 2 more waiters were needed. IMO, the only thing going for this restaurant is location. It is the sister restaurant of FIns in downtown Rehoboth. I enjoy FIns but won't be going back to FIns Ale House.

One other problem which is not the restaurant's fault, other than they chose the location. If you're not a local, good luck finding the entrance to the parking lot.

“Great atmosphere, friendly staff”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We went to the beach on St. Patrick's Day and found few places open due to getting eight inches of snow overnight. We happened into Fins with few other choices, and it turned out to be a very good thing. The staff was super friendly, the drinks were good, and the food was excellent. We'll definitely go back on our next trip to the beach.
