Close to the beach and the Sage Golf Course.

The food is pretty good, not terribly expensive and you can usually get something to please everyone.

Great view of the ocean and beach. Quaint place with nooks and crannies everywhere. Good atmosphere. Fish and chips mediocre at best. Fish pieces were small and overcooked. (in my opinion). Quite surprising after reading other reviews. The chowder was hot and good though lacking in clams. No refills offered on our water.

Had a beer and some seafood here which came with an excellent chowder starter. Good atmosphere and beer the cheapest I've seen in California.

We didn't expect much here because usually beach side restaurants are spoiled by having a market based simply on their location. Fins proved to be an exception to this rule, the food here was quite good. Along with food quality suffering at beach-side places a lot of time service suffers as well because wait staff often have to deal with... More
