We had the Port A burger and the Cowboy burger and chicken fried steak (we went two nights in a row). Rave reviews for the food! Though, with the chicken fried steak, I wish the portions of the two sides were bigger (one ice cream scoop sized mashed potatoes and like 1/3 of a corn on the cob). The bread... More

The view is great and you can eat outside right on the water. The menu is good and everyone enjoyed the seafood and appetizers. One had a burger that was very good. Tip: If you are taking a pirate cruise or Kohootz cruise, your ticket stub gets you 10% off here. Service can be slow so plan accordingly.

Good beer, fast service, good nachos with chicken, wonderful location and fair price. What do you want more? Restrooms a bit more fragrant, maybe...

Small parking lot but was able to find a spot on a Saturday night. We had about a 25 minute wait for a party of 6but was able to grab a seat at the bar. Bar tenders were friendly. Fabulous mojiotos. I had fried shrimp and they were over fried. Husband had coconut shrimp salad and shrimp were a little... More

Didn't hear too many people recommend Fin's but we had a great experience. We sat outside and watched the boats, our server was perfect, and we loved what we ordered. For an appetizer we had calamari and for entrees my husband and I split the seafood nachos and my son had the grilled shrimp platter. The nachos were very good.... More

I'd eaten here a year ago and loved it, so this year returned expecting the same experience. I suspect there is new management, as the restaurant has really gone downhill in a year's time. There was food on the floor that wasn't cleaned the entire time I was there, staff confused about where orders should go, and food that took... More

The location is great. We sat outside and had a great view however the food was not worth the price. Seafood didn't taste fresh and was bland. Our server was nice but we did have to wait a bit just for extra condiments. Won't be going back.

Stopped here on Sunday the 11th August to grab lunch on our way into town for our vacation. Place was half empty but we had a wait of about 15 minutes to be seated. There was an inside and outside area for dining and we choose the outside porch for the view of the marina. While hot and humid (Texas... More

We had to wait about 30 minutes to be seated. Ordinarily that's not a bad wait time at a restaurant and it was exactly what the hostess quoted us. The problem was that we were waiting for a table that had been open, cleaned and ready to seat the whole time we were there. Our waiter was nice, but we... More

This seafood restaurant was right at the marina and made for a great location to have a long lunch. The wait staff and hostess were wonderful both times we visited. The food was not spectacular but the price is reasonable with big servings.
