Lay back and relax

Great place: lay back, relax, have a good food, and enjoy being right by the sandy beach. The restaurant staff is very friendly, helpful and they work fast. I liked it!

Just finished a wonderful dinner of stir fried scallops and clam chowder at Fins in Grover Beach! Our waitress, Laura, was fabulous in her suggestions and working with the chef to customize our dinner! So So Good. As it so happened, we were lucky enough to enjoy a brilliant sunset while enjoying our beverages.

We keep coming back because everything we've ordered has been excellent. Fin's chowder is rich & delicious. Their Lobster Quesadilla so tasty. Their fish is wonderful. Their service is stellar. Laura is fantastic, attentive, & so very nice!

A huge thank you to Bruce and his crew for making their "Dinner for a Cause," on Giving Tuesday so successful. The team donated 100% of the proceeds from the night, including the staff tips! It was a delicious meal with great fish and trip-tip. And the guests were raving about the clam chowder. Thank to such a caring restaurant,... More

Been eating here through the name change. Portions have greatly shrunk, but the quality is still good, the service also good, and the view wonderful. Reasonable prices, and a fun Happy "Hour" bar.

This restaurant has a perfect location. It is at the beach, has a patio, and a separate bar area. It is a right place to have great fish and chips; and take a walk on the boardwalk along the shore watching a sunset or your children running on the sand; or to listen live music and dance in the bar...

It's located right at the beach. There's a boardwalk, and sandy beach just a few steps from the restaurant. The combinations, fish n chips, chowder, and salad are very good. There's outside dinning and an enclosed patio where dogs are welcome. On Friday evening the bartender removes his apron and becomes the one man band. He's really very good. Drinks... More

I eat at Fin's all the time. Not only have I never had a bad experience, but as my friends and I talk, not one of them have had a bad meal either. Judging by the crowds and my experience, I'd say that it just doesn't get any better than this.

We have been coming to Pismo for years trying several different off of our to do list. Now we know we will bring friends with us next time we are in the area. Our waitress , Laura, was a special treat herself. Very personable.
