We are here after a long day deep sea fishing and the good was good and portions were large. But we had what we thought was a new server. He was a little forgetful but it was ok we weren't in any kind of a hurry.

The food here wasn't bad. Seafood was very tasty, but for a restaurant right on the sea, you'd think that their fresh seafood wouldn't cost more than their chicken or beef. Just found that rather strange.

Service was slow however waitress was very kind. Food was so so and pricey. One adult entrée and one child entrée with drinks was $35. The adult entrée by the way was chicken tenders. I don't plan to recommend or return.

Let me start off by saying that the service I got was excellent, but the quality of the food wasn't. We ordered ceviche and the shrimp in it was rock hard, ordered a couple of fish and fried shrimp entrees and they we all bland. I hope that they re-vamp their recipe because this is an awesome restaurant in a... More

Mediocre at best. Service is slow, best part of the entrees are the french fries. Chicken strips, Po boy and a slice of grilled fish, one beer, one water one margarita...$81.00 for three. Which in a tourist trap town isn't bad if the food and service are good as well. It is a neat place, down on the docks, outside... More

It was our first trip to Port A and heard great things about this place so we thought we would give it a try. Sadly, it was horrible. We had a 45 minute wait for our table we had a nice server and the drinks were good, but our food took over an hour to come out. We ordered the... More

We sat outside it was nice, food and service was just average certainly not as friendly as other restaurant we have visited this week. For sure go to cast aways, moby dicks and Phoenix . This is one of very few restaurants that does not allow smoking on their deck

Go to have late lunch or early dinner from 3pm to 6pm the fishing boats should come in next door. Dine outside and watch the charters come in with catch of the day. Food is ok drinks were a little disappointment stick to beer for adult beverages.

We had dinner at Fins one night on our stay. The bill was 80$ for two adults and children. Nice to sit and watch the marina. Seafood was ok, but not best I have had. Service was really good and fast.
