Finn’s Harborside, a casual waterfront seafood restaurant on Greenwich Cove, is a popular culinary destination any time of year, but it is particularly so in autumn. As soon as the season turns, the chef at this longtime restaurant on the water rolls out the newly expanded fall menu, adding hearty, satisfying and flavorful favorites to an already diverse and enticing line-up.
Diners have been coming to Finn’s Harborside for decades to enjoy the cozy, nautical-themed main dining room and picturesque view of the cove. Watercraft of every kind is moored nearby, making the restaurant a perfect place to dock and venture inside for a cold draft beer. It is an ideal place to drop anchor and fill up inside on something warm and comforting.
Mark Finn, the restaurant’s owner and one of its namesakes, enthusiastically highlights the seasonal additions to the menu, from the “finger-licking good” Buffalo Chicken Empanadas to their Fried Chicken Wings and Finn’s famous Seafood Cake. The Empanadas are “delightfully” spicy while the Applewood-smoked wings make a tasty indulgence for a gathering of rowdy Patriot’s fans. The newly added Seafood cake is packed with lobster, scallops, shrimp and clams ~ all deep fried to perfection. These additions join an already large selection of crowd-pleasing appetizers.
Finn’s Harborside is best known for its fresh seafood, delivered straight from the docks every day. Fans of Finn’s love their golden-battered Fish & Chips, scallops, clams, shrimp, scrod and LOBSTERS served every which way (lobsters served in their shell must be ordered in advance). Smoked right on the premises are their racks of tender baby back ribs and sweet pulled pork BBQ. Check out the newly-introduced Fried Shrimp Platter, Mushroom Ravioli, Braised short ribs and Audrey’s Giant Stuffed Shells.
Also new this fall are these favorites: Buffalo Chicken Grilled Pizza, Carole’s Reuben Sandwich, Mark’s Cuban Sandwich and a delicious Short Rib Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
Finn’s Harborside has upped the ante with yet another reason to dine here this fall, it’s “Finntastic Pre-Fixe Menu.” With options that are comparable to Restaurant Week (but better!), diners can feast on one of two options: a fixed price menu of a single dinner with a glass of house wine for $22.00 or $20.00 OR, a couple’s dinner with a bottle of house wine for $40.00 or $35.00. Entrées include such delectable dishes as Pan Seared Scallops with Creamy Risotto, Baby Back Ribs Half Rack and a heaping serving of Lobster Mac and Cheese (and so much more!).
Finn’s Harborside is also a premier destination for hosting private parties and special events where up to 125 guests are invited.
