I was visiting with friends at the coast, and this was my first time going to Fin's. I know I'll return the next time I'm in the area. I had the chowder, which was mentioned as having won awards, and I believe it. It was very tasty, with great consistency and flavor. Our waitress Laura was friendly and efficient. Fin's... More

My wife and I can't get enough of this place. The food, location, and service is amazing! Our server, Denise was really sweet and very attentive. She gave us the perfect amount of attention and privacy. We really enjoyed having her as our waitress. Apart from the great service we all very much enjoyed our food. To start we had... More

My parents live in the vicinity and I have been a regular Fin's customer since they opened; thus, I have a long-term perspective of this establishment. As Pismo continues to grow as a tourist center, Fin's remains the place at the edge of town where you can get away from the downtown crush. (This may change after the California State... More

We’ve dropped into Fins a few times over the years and the food has always been quite good. This past time, we both had clam chowder bowls and found the chowder to be full of flavor, clams, and of a perfect consistency. I generally use loads of Tabasco to pep up a chowder – not here! We also had a... More

Can't beat the location. We went there for lunch to try the clam chowder and were disappointed, didn't live up to the hype. The chowder was too thick, lacked clams and why the little of pad of butter on top?

This place is great the food is amazing and I'm pretty sure their clam chowder is the best on the west coast. My servers were super friendly and always making sure everything was good and I didn't need anything. My server's name was Mike and he was an outstanding guy always polite and full of humor. My other server Denise... More

We went to Fin's for the first time in April. We so enjoyed our dinner and the entertainment we made this our first stop when we found ourselves back in the area on a 2 night business trip. We were lucky enough that it was a Friday night. So after a great meal of chowder, fish, shrimp and chips we... More
