Clam chowder is some of the best around. They add some special ingredients which make it unique. Side salad is huge for the price. Can share. Ambiance is perfect as you can watch the ocean from the patio. Cool fire pits at the tables. Go...there every time we go to Pismo.More

The seafood was fresh and their specialty cocktails were very good. Social distancing was observed. An enjoyable time!

Our family visited Fin’s and we had a fantastic time! The food was delicious, and the service was friendly and fun. The fish and chips were amazing, and my daughter said the clam chowder was the best she had on our trip!! The beers were...ice cold and the fire pits made the chilly evening just perfect. We would definitely return!More

Was very disappointed with food here. For the price paid Chunky clam chowder in a can was much better. At a seafood restaurant I expected the fish n chips to taste better than the chicken strips. If you want quality seafood skip Finns and go...to Pismo fish and chips. I wish I hadMore

We went twice for lunch. You can't beat the location, right near the water but away from the crowds of Pismo Beach. First time our lunch service was terrible - slow and not attentive. Second time it improved but still has a ways to go....But the lobster quesadilla and clam chowder are really good!More

My wife and I came here for dinner while staying in Pismo. The good: right on the beach with outdoor seating. The bad: food took about an hour. The ugly: Collin is a terrible server. He never checked on us and did not bring ketchup...which I asked for. We won’t be back! Cheers!More

We were there on Valentine's Day and not in a hurry, so relaxed in the outside seating area and enjoyed the surroundings. Even met some very nice people. The wait was worth it, fish & chips were more than we could eat and very tasty....Staff was very, very nice, even under pressure of the crowd. Dogs are welcome in the outside area. Plenty of parking area. And can walk to the beach before or after eating! A bonus!! We enjoyed this experience and definitely will be back.More

So disappointed when we had to leave after waiting for 25 minutes with no service. Valentines Day and Presidents Day weekend and only two waitresses to serve a busy restaurant during lunch. Totally unorganized with customers not being served based on their arrival, but based...on the server who seated you.More

Outdoor seating was perfect as the high-top tables and Los tops had fire rings in the middle which made it very cozy with the very cool weather. There was live music and very enjoyable! Food was decent and worth the visit!

I don't know what oil(s) they use. TripAdvisor is a site to post visitors' opinions of service and/or goods received. You should call Carlos at Fin's directly. He is very personable and can tell you exactly what they use in... More

Happy Hour is 4 until closing...quite lovely, yes? The weather has been sunny and warm, and I cannot remember what is on the appetizer menu, but know you will easily find something tasty at a good price.
