Restaurant Review - Fins & Things

September 16, 2012
Our neighbor suggested we try out this at the time, new Caribbean restaurant he had tried on University. Being the foodie I am, I decided to drag the HH to try this "new" restaurant.

Fins & Things is a restaurant and lounge that caters to Caribbean (more Jamaican) foodies. Patrons have the option of dining in, hanging at the full stocked bar or taking food out. The first time we dined in. There wasn't a lot of people there at the time so we were a bit skeptical. We ordered the brown stew lobster and escovich fish. The brown stew lobster was amazing. You actually get a whole lobster that they have repacked after stewing. The brown stew itself was also really good. It surely tasted different from other "brown stew" gravies that you get with regular lunches at other restaurants

It came accompanied with white rice.

Service was not as great as the food. It wasn't really that packed and we had to wait a while for our order. It wouldn't be so bad of an issue if this was our only experience. After that initial experience we attempted to get food from this establishment and it was not very good experiences. The food took sometimes over an hour to be prepared after being told 20 mins. On occasions the food was the wrong order of just had to be thrown out. So it is obvious they do have a problem with consistency. We have not been back since for food.

I have ventured there on a Saturday night just to chill at the bar and had a good experience. The bartender was very friendly and there was no delay in service with the drinks. There was a few other people there hanging out and enjoying the music.

For my first visit I would give Fins & Things a 4 out 5. The additional experiences would take them down to a 3.
