Seafood Restaurant
$$$
“Fin has the most incredible food I have had in the area, though it does come with the price, it is for sure worth it! A great spot to try something new or have a perfect date night or celebration. The drinks are great and the head bartender is award-winning. Join them every Monday for Mixology Monday! you get two craft cocktails for the price of one! So, for just 10 dollars you get a crafted personal creation from Robert Gregory himself or one of their other incredible bartenders. Chef Kenny has a huge garden and grows most things he crafts in the kitchen. They offer only the finest seafood and meat dishes, I have never been disappointed here in over 2 years of going regularly!”
