Location on marina

This place is all about the location on the marina, water views, outside seating and next to Roberts Point Park. Gumbo and crab cakes weren't too bad but the $9 virgin piña colada too pricey not in bar setting. Menu is also limited. However you can have a nice waterfront meal, save 10% by... read more

Average food at a decent location doesn't quite make a memory that I feel deserves a recommendation. I liked our server - Allison - but the whole experience was somewhat disappointing. The outside seating was nice and the weather was OK so it was perfect for a place to have lunch if only the food was just a little better.... More

Fins has an outside deck on the harbor that would have been nice. However, the weather was too cold for us to sit outside. We had a hard time hearing each other talk, partly do to a number of children (which were generally well behaved) and partly due to bad acoustics in the building. We liked the food--calamari appetizer, grilled... More

A friend and I were in town visiting for spring break. After reading good reviews, we decided to stop at Fins. We ordered the crab cake app to start. Neither of us are super picky eaters, but they came out so burned we had to send them back. About 20 seconds after receiving our crispy cakes, our server brought our... More

Nice place to eat- they cook your catch just how you like it! Make sure you get the filet done prior to bringing it in!

We have been here twice at different times of the year both times the food was amazing! Everything from the burgers to the fish cooked perfectly and staff is always welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend eating here. Family friendly with great water views.

Stopped by to grab supper one evening. Sat outside and had a decent view of the boats coming into the marina. Food has always been good. Nothing to write home about, but good all the same. I would recommend if you are looking for some decent seafood.

We hadn't tried this place in years, but we went on a Friday night and had the house specials. My wife had the grilled chicken on rice and I had the pulled pork sandwich. Both were 7.95 each. The chicken melted in your mouth and the pork was the best I have ever had. Service was great and fast. We... More

My son and I were looking for a nice place to have lunch and went to Fins. The setting is nice, right on the water. The regular menu does seem a bit expensive but I ordered the Friday daily special and it was awesome! I got their grilled chicken with rice and vegetables and it was cooked to perfection. My...

We went on a Monday night which is "all the fried shrimp you can eat". It came with fries and was very tasty. There was a server walking around with a huge bowl of hot, fried shrimp to serve to people. This was a nice feature because so many times you have to wait to get more food. Our waiter... More
