Fins is quite different from any place we have dined before. It offers BYOF, bring your own fish. A local member of our party, an avid fisherman, stopped by his house on to "pick up the fish", which seemed rather odd. Upon arrival at Fins he handed over the bag of fish to the man who greeted us. The same... More

We went here with a large group. The service was excellent considering the number of people. The popcorn shrimp was very good - not greasy and not over cooked. The Half pound cheese burger was not over cooked, a little pink and very tasty. Excellent french fries, not too salty, lightly crispy. Nice view of the ships too. We will... More

The location is great--right on the dock. Other than that, another reviewer nailed it: 5 star prices, 2 star food, 1 star service. We paid $18.99 for six average sized coconut shrimp that were fairly tasteless; $12.99 for 5 chicken strips and fries. The service was slow.

We loved the menu and its variety of seafood choices. I enjoyed the fish tacos with chiptole ranch and my husband loved the crabby burger (huge crab cake on sourdough bun). Even the fries were great! Very good food!

Probably one of the nicest locations in Port A..., with 5 Star prices, 2 Star service and 1 Star food. After looking at the working class menu we decided we woud not spend $19.99 of a crab burger, or any of the other overpriced breaded fried foods. We settled on a Shrimp Po Boy $13.99 and a Garden Salad $6.99.... More

We went to Finn's for lunch on a Saturday. We were seated right away on the deck along with several other tables. We sat for 10 minutes with all of the servers walking right by us but never stopping. We finally stopped one of them on her way by and asked if she knew who our server was. She said... More

This is a great place with a good atmosphere. Indoor/Outdoor tables, beautiful view and surfboards mounted to the ceiling. I had the best mushroom swiss burger I've ever eaten (approx. $11, comes with fries) and their onion rings are crazy good!

In Port A for 4 days, had a very nice meal at Fins! We sat on the deck overlooking the pier. It was pretty with lights and the boats nearby. The service was just fine...even considering our party had some special requests. The food was great! I had the garlic fish (mahi-mahi) which was hands down the BEST breaded fish... More

Went here for lunch after a 4 hour bay fishing trip with 2 other couples. A little pricey, but the service and food was food.
