Horrible Drinks

The food was amazing but we had to return the drinks as they must have contained no alcohol. The waiter hardly ever stopped by and when he brought the check the drinks were still on there. We eventually had to walk inside and track him down in order to pay our bill. Great view of the boats though!

Delicious food, but the wait time can be horrible. I've had to wait 2 hours, and I've walked right in, on the same summer weekend at about the same time. I won't say it's worth a 2 hour wait, but I'd wait 30 min again for sure. A little higher on the price scale.

Friendly staff, cold beer and awesome burgers. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio and watching the activities in the marina.

Food was ok at best. I ordered the shrimp and oyster platter and neither were good. All 6 of the shrimp on the plate were WAY over cooked and the oysters were huge and not like any oysters I've ever eaten before (and not in a good way). The gumbo was so spicy it was almost inedible. On the plus... More

I got a to go order, shrimp dinner & oyster poboy. We were headed back to Austin so on the ferry when we took a bite. Horrible! the shrimp was over cooked & rubbery, a very bland taste. The poboy was worse, it was undercooked & the lots of green slime just ran all over. It didn't smell very good.... More

I've eaten at The Final several times but did not know they had gluten-free buns until recently. Our waiter was exceptionally aware that I was trying to find something on the menu that was gluten-free without being annoying about it. He not only let me know about the buns he saved me from the battered french fries. This kind of... More

We had a long day of fishing and in the Summer Heat of Texas. We went to Fins for a late dinner. My brother suggested we try out the place. We walked into the restaurant and waited for the attendant who handles seating. We asked for the first available and waited for around 10 minutes. All good. We were seated... More

My husband and I did not enjoy the golden shrimp platter. The kids did like the cheeseburgers...especially the bacon cheeseburger.

Overpriced- but right next to the pirate cruise. The food was good not great. A good greasy seafood place.
