Just ok

We had one order of nachos, 4 beers and 1 unsweetened tea. The bill was $38. Nachos were covered in white queso with a little Pico de Gallo and a few shrimp. The nachos were good but not $16 good. Tea was decent. Waitress was friendly and helpful. No complaints with her. I was looking for a... read more

We had a family group of 12 ages 2 - 73. Our order covered a wide range including fish, crab cakes, chicken, hamburgers and chicken fried steak, and everyone was pleased - no complaints. One piece of fish was a bit "fishy" tasting, but we thought the mahi mahi was really, really good. Loved the onion rings also. We all... More

We tried Fins after getting off the Red Dragon Cruise next door. The staff were awesome. I couldn't have asked for better customer service. The fried pickles were really good. The fried fish and shrimp were not good though. We noticed a lot of the people getting the hamburgers, and they looked really good. We will probably try this place... More

Another great meal at the harbor. We had the mango, coconut shrimp salad and blackened Mahi. Both were excellent. The service was super and the location on the harbor wonderful. Fun to watch the tour boats and fishing boats come in and out.

I was hungry and pulled in to Fins. Not a line, but had to wait just under 10mins. There is another parking lot down the road...so I am guessing at some point in time this place gets ridiculously full. While waiting, some guys walked in with fish right off the boat for the kitchen to cook...yeah they do that after... More

We enjoyed this place however we did just have burgers and margaritas. We went on a very busy Friday night and they were able to seat our 2 top in about 30 minutes. After the wait we where very hungry, and wait staff did everything they could to accommodate us and get our food to us ASAP. Both my husband... More

We returned to Fins Grill and Icehouse for a family birthday celebration. Yes, it was peak summer season (July 3) but, no, the level of service was unacceptable. When a restaurant admits more customers than it can handle well, it's obvious that service is not the highest priority. When five people have been served but the sixth finally has to... More

We read somewhere Fins has the best burgers in town. They are good burgers. They have friendly staff. My only complaint was the sticky tables outside.

The wait was long but that is to be expected. Drinks were really good while we waited. Our waiter was great and very sweet. He messed up on our order but brought the correct order promptly. The grilled shrimp was the best I've had during our whole trip and I had shrimp every single day! We go to Fins every... More

For sure order the shrimp nachos. They're to die for and I certainly wish I knew how to make them at home as good as they are at Fins. Recommend for sure.
