First and foremost, thank you Paige for being our waitress. Your knowledge of the craft was most pleasing. We arrived just after Five PM and the place was near empty. When we left, it was totally packed! And I now understand why. This place comforts...More

Food was excellent, but be prepared for a long wait. They do a lot of window service which seems to slow down the main dining room. Not much room in the outside dining area which has a view of the water.

We are glad you enjoyed your meal and apologize for the wait. We do our best to control volume at the takeout window but sometimes, especially around holidays, the food does come out more slowly.

Enjoyed a wonderful lobster dinner at Finn's while visiting Block Island. The food was fabulous and the location over looking the harbor spectacular.

The fish sandwich has gone up in price since I first started coming here but it is still a wonderful and tasty bargain by BI standards. A delightful piece of fresh fish on a bun with lettuce and tomato and a splash of tartar. I'll...More
