The place to eat fish and chips.

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.

My friend wanted me to take her to Fin's for her birthday because it is near the walking trail she likes. She does not eat any dairy and I am a vegetarian. They had no goat cheese for her. She ordered the tacos and said they were fair. I had a large salad with apples and dried cranberries. I had... More

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 the sourdough... 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

Fin's is a great restaurant that has the ability to cater to the local population as well as the tourists that frequently visit the area. 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
