Five of us had a few drinks waiting for our food from neighboring Harbor Grill and while eating. Sat at the bar with what seemed like some of the locals (at least regulars). Not the greatest selection of liquor, but decent drinks and service. Good...More

We are back again and happy to see Fins open. Nice view, excellent food and service. You can eat inside or go out on to the porch and watch the boats and coastal birds. It's very relaxing.

If you are looking fpr a great view with cold drinks, an excellent waitstaff and the best live music in town- you've found it. The only service that cannot be provided is air conditioning because it's all out doors- but there's usually a great breeze.
