I just love Finz especially in the summer time. Drinks are great, service is great but the food is delicious! When taking out of town friends to see Salem, this is my go-too every time. For me, I love the sesame encrusted tuna.

My wife and I ate lunch at the restaurant. The staff were amazing from the hostess to our server. My wife had a lobster and she was in heaven. I had the blue cheese wedge salad and is now my favourite salad to eat. The atmopshere was great and the food and drink was excellent.

Food was excellent. Service was worse than bad today. We had crispy calamari as an appetizer...excellent. I had steak tips and my date had a salad with shrimp. Jen was our waitress. She was extremely slow the whole meal. The bill came to 80 dollars and change. I put $100 in the check binder and we had to leave because... More

Hi Jack, I am so sorry to read about your experience yesterday. I was here and feel personally responsible that I was unaware of your poor service, I knew Jen was having a tough day but I thought she was keeping it together. There is no excuse for service as bad as you are describing, and I feel confident that... More

The staff at our B&B recommended Finz, so we came here for a late lunch on our first day. The staff is attentive, the menu average, the food well prepared and tasty. Not much action on the "waterfront" when we were there, but plenty of "post-communion family dinner" action inside. It was a fun and lively, but not too loud,... More

When the weather is right, a table outside affords a beautiful waterfront setting that makes for a perfectly serene and magical time. This is the biggest reason to visit this seafood restaurant. The food is good, but not up to the level of the outdoor experience. It just could be better. We've visited twice and come away a little disappointed... More

The staff here is great and the place is in a great location. You overlook the marina and get to take in the wonderful boats as you dine. I was there for a wedding rehearsal dinner but i went down and looked at the menu as well. We had ribeye and stuffed haddock, both were very well executed so i... More

The service was very good. Wait staff and food servers were fast, courteous, and attentive. The restaurant comped us for dessert as it was our anniversary. Our food was only mediocre, though. I ordered a steamed 1.5 pound lobster which took some time to get to the table. The claw and tail meat was a little overcooked. I've been eating... More

First time in Salem and was directed to Finz for seafood. Service was a bit slow (server was chewing gum... a big no no). Food though was wonderful. Had fried oysters that were excellent. Other apps were also great. Would I go back again???? Yes.

Loved the fish tacos! They have just the right flavors with Cilantro and lime, lightly battered fish! Yum!

We had a nice lunch here on the deck by the water. Seafood wrap was excellent and the shrimp burger was good.
