Charleston Restaurants: Finz Bar and Grill

After a walk on the beach we were craving sea food, and wanted to try out a new place.  Finz Bar and Grill fit both criteria.  It’s rather small inside (about 6 booths, plus a bar area and a few tables outside where people can still smoke), but it wasn’t crowded when we got there around 6pm.  Tony ordered the grilled seafood platter, with shrimp, scallops and flounder.  All the food was fresh, perfectly cooked, and simply seasoned with a bit of pepper; the shrimp were tender, the flounder was flaky and the scallops cut like butter.  The grit cake was an edible but underwhelming little fried triangle.  The smashed potatoes, however, are home-made, skin on, mashed red potatoes and are fabulous.  Louisa tried the seafood burrito, it had shrimp and scallops, sauteed red onions, and a very nice and creamy Gruyere cheese sauce. The burrito was good, and so were the home made potato chips we got as a side, but Louisa probably would go for the plain sea food next time. Tony said he’d get the burrito, though, so either dish is a good choice! This is one of the best sea food places we’ve been to, and the fact they have great (fresh, perfectly done) grilled sea food is an added bonus!
