I am putting 2 reviews in as the food was great but the drinks were terrible!!! My sister and I had margaritas! Patron with grand mariner. It was probably the worst margarita I've ever had!!!!! It was so sour that my sister said just down it. We both did but plugged our nose so we didn't have to taste it!!... More

The location of Fins is great; right near the marina. Great view from the outdoor deck. The food was okay not great. I had the grilled fish and it was a little dried out. The service was good but it was a quiet night at the restaurant.

Had dinner at this location. Looks pretty cool from the outside and is on the water. Had a salad which was great but also had some not so fresh fish. Wait staff corrected the issue and it was dealt with properly.

While we usually eat seafood when traveling near the coast, we were ready for something different. The burgers at Fins were large and delicious. We had the swiss cheese and mushroom. The sweet potato fries were good and the onion "rings" were very thin and light and yummy dipped in the sauce. The decor was fun.

We got a bit late on the trails Friday night and found that the highly recommended places were closed or full! Fins was our backup option. The place was comfortable and our waiter friendly. BUT the food was sincerely mediocre.

The food was pretty standard. The gumbo was okay. Nothing to brag about. The prices were a little high as well. I did like the fried pickles and this was the first place I have ever seen that had fried jalapenos on the menu. They were good:)

Spotted this place coming of the ferry one evening. Really enjoyed sitting on the deck and looking at the boats. Food was good. Have tried to go back on several occasions and always find it closed. The last straw was when it was lit up, open sign was lit as well, we decided to give it another try and was... More

I was not dissapionted. We came from Corpus Christi and took some out of state company. It was excellent. The fried shrimp was superb and the fried oysters were delicious. My son had chicken tenders that were yummy and my nephew had an amazing bacon cheese burger that was huge! The only, only thing that did not meet to expectations... More

I stopped in for dinner. It was too cold to sit on the patio but I sat at a table by the window and got to see some ships come in. The gumbo was great as was the service. The shrimp po'boy was fine. I had a cute drink called an Iguana. Mostly juice but it was yummy. I would... More
