A stunning view of Pismo Beach awaits you at this wonderful restaurant. Seafood is delicious there with full service bar and nice wine and beer selections.

Wanted to grab a quick meal and not have to worry about parking. We decided to go to Finns. They have the best clam chowder bread bowl. Not to mention our server Laura was so sweet!! She waited on us right away and checked on us a few times. It is always so nice to get great customer service when... More

Always consistent always a great View. Can get a little slow in service when they get really really busy. I always try and remind myself never to come here during the summer due to all the tourists.

I ordered shrimp ceviche and I love it! It was on the sweet side and I finished all of it. The staff were friendly. We sat outside where they have a fireplace and heaters. Free parking is available as well.

With so many great places to eat in the area you think you can pick just any place to dine. I remember fin's through the years and it's many transitions. I took my wife there to have a good meal at a reasonable price and we were disappointed. Don't be scared off by the somewhat ratty or weathered appearance outside.... More

Fin's has very good fish, lobster, etc (and don't forget the Mai Tais) while eating very close to the beach right off of Grand Ave and #1 (or PCH). Yes, they have a bar but I can't tell you about that as I've never been to that part.

Place to have a great dining experience.. All personnel were friendly. However, Anthony has a way of making customers feel special.

Nice end to a day on the beach. My hubby is fussy with steak but he loved his meal which was juicy and flavourful. I had calamari which was pretty good but I've had better . My daughter had the ribs and absolutely loved them. Service was great, location gorgeous. A must try. We intend on going back during our... More
