Fresh Out of Water: FINS Fish and Oyster Company

IMG_4349
The newest addition to Oxford’s Square is FINS Fish and Oyster Company.
The seafood restaurant presides in between Pink and Proper and the Lily Pad on Courthouse Square.
IMG_4348In an effort to get off campus, I convinced a friend of mine to be adventurous and try something new. We are both seafood lovers and I had noticed FINS when walking around the Square a few week earlier. So when my friend said yes, we meet up for dinner.
As we entered the uncrowned restaurant it gave us both a very sophisticated vibe and we felt out of place in our yoga pants and oversized t-shirts. After glancing at the menu, our eyes were immediately drawn to the prices. Being the broke college students that we are we felt a little guilty breaking the bank on a Thursday night, but we decided to treat ourselves anyway.
I ordered the crab cakes, which came with two sides, and I choose the fired okra and the cheese grits out of a large mouthwatering selection. The grits were fabulous, but the okra wasn’t what I was expecting. The crab cakes themselves were phenomenal topped with a delicious sauce.
The ambiance of the restaurant was very cool complete with exposed brick and an unique bar. My friend and I were very intrigued by their list of drinks eager to try all the martini choices when we turn 21.IMG_4365
I was very impressed by what FINS is trying to accomplish over on the Square. And I cannot wait to go back and see what the catch of the day will be. But next time I will bring the parents.
