We visited Fin's after a wedding on the beach. The staff did everything possible to take good care of us. Good food, nice view, great staff:)

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.

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?
