Pleasant Surprise

We didn't expect much here because usually beach side restaurants are spoiled by having a market based simply on their location.

I ate at Fins today and the Fish and chips were delicious. My waitress, Kirsten, was amazing. She treated me like I was one of her family members, overall Fins is a great place to go. Good food, great service.

Great fried clams, wonderful chowder, good fried fish & chips! Good service. Little pricey even without drinks. Would go back again though.

Over 40 years ago, as a college kid, I started coming to this place. It's definitely changed over the years. At times in the past, the food was not much, but I keep coming back to this piece of my misspent youth. Normally we sit at the outside enclosed eating area. This time we opted for a (new to me)...

We usually go to Fin's for Drinks and Appetizers (Happy Hour) to watch the sun set in the Fall, and have an enjoyable experience sitting on the enclosed patio on the street side. Have not eaten dinner there yet, so can not comment on the meals, but the appetizers are decent, with most of them being fried. Plenty of parking... More

By far one of the best bowls of clam chowder I have ever had! Great beachfront location and interior decorations. Entire meal was very good but the chowder was incredible.

We come to the coast for vacation at least once a year. We stumbled on Fins by making a wrong turn and decided to have lunch. We've eaten fish and chips at the regular haunts and this will be our new go to knavery for fish and chips.

Found this place thru TA, fun place to sit on the patio and watch the cars coming and going to the dunes. Fish tacos were ok. Excellent service. I'm sure we'll go back some day.
