Finn's Seafood Restaurant

An island institution for forty years, Finn’s Seafood Restaurant is the quintessential something-for-everyone place. It’s hard to find an island resident who doesn’t have a favorite Finn’s menu item.  Summer visitors have their favorites, too, the things they look forward to all winter. It’s almost ritualistic. One friend talks about getting her lobster dinner with corn on the cob. Another has to get his fish and chips as soon as he steps off the ferry. For me it’s the broiled fish sandwich. Has been for decades. There’s something about the simplicity of the hamburger bun, some lettuce, tomato and a chunky wedge of lemon. What makes it so good of course is that the fish is always so fresh and cooked so perfectly, not surprising at a place with its own fish market attached. And none of us has to worry if the folks we’re with don’t love seafood as much as we do. There’s plenty of pasta and salads and meat. Like I said, something for everyone.
