G.W. Fins

  • f

Anyone eaten at this relatively new fish house? I'd like to know if it should be added to my "must visit" list.

  1. I have not personally eaten here, but 3 separate fairly reliable people have told me that it is the best fish they have ever had.

      Admittedly, the last two meals we had across the street from Fin's were both pre-ordered group events, but I do have fonder memories of the meal we had a G.W. Fins recently. The best part, nothing against the fish, was the mushroom tart. No surprise, the secret of the crust was lard -- at least that's what G.W., the head chef, said recently on a local TV food show I caught while at the barbershop. The mushrooms were thick and rich and not too salty.
