Right on the beach!!

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

Great food and amazing service. Also a great view of the sunset. Good drinks, and the straff makes you feel like family. ☺️

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.

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.
