Great location - great chowder!

My fiance and I were in town, checking out the area because we are moving there soon. I wanted to check out a place that was close to the water but didn't cost an arm and a leg. Then we found Fin's! Nothing fancy, very relaxed atmosphere. Service was good but a bit slow. The clam chowder in... read more

Their food is a little pricy, but the people are nice and the happy hour is a great deal! Fun place to have a drink with friends outside.

Happy hour is 4 pm to close..had drinks, appetizers,soup, and a meal..all good. The only caveat is the clam chowder..which based on the reviews is the reason we fought this place out ..left much to be desired.. We sampled a cup...and ate it but were glad it wasn't a bowl or a sourdough bowl..definitely NOT the best I've ever tasted.... More

My mom and I went to Fin's for lunch about two weeks ago. Thank God we weren't in a hurry. They had one employee workin as hostess, server, and cashier. She wasn't bringing anyone their checks. Everyone basically had to walk up to the cash register and request their checks. People were rather getting irritated. The food was average at... More

The location is unique, the food is good, the drinks are good and the service is good. They serve good burgers, good seafood, good steaks and their drinks are good and well priced. If you... More

The clam chowder had a bit of butter on top which was weird but it tasted good. The sea food pasta left something to be desired only had mini shrimp and salmon in it. No scallops, clams, mussels or calamari and it was pretty bland. I don't plan on ever going back which is to bad because its right on... More

Sunday the bride and I decided to brave the crowds and have lunch at Fin’s at the foot of Grand Avenue in Grover Beach. Usually we don’t attempt it on weekends because, even though the proprietor has expanded the restaurant to over twice the size it was originally, it’s often difficult to get in. For once it was not crowded... More

I ordered the enchiladas with a red chili sauce. My wife ordered the Two Taco entree. Both were wonderful. We're going back today based on our very positive experience we had two weeks ago.

Our first time here as part time locals & what a great find! Portions are huge plus you get your choice of salad, coleslaw or clam chowder besides the accompanying fries. Two in our party had fish tacos & were blown away by the huge portions of fish & large tortillas. I had the clams & chips which were plentiful... More
