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

Ate here with family after going to Grover Beach. Got there a little after 1 pm on a Sunday and there was no waiting. There was outdoor seating as well with live music. I had the clams which tasted like frozen clams from a grocery store--no flavor. They were served with cocktail sauce--would not recommend. My husband had the fish... More

We stopped off for a lunch break and were seated out back. Service was friendly and fast, the food however was a disappointment and was mostly bland. I had the clam chowder which was ok and the fish tacos. It was a huge potion with lots of toppings, but the fried fish had no taste. A band was setting up... More

Fin's is a very popular "on-the-beach" happening! One can not beat the prices and quality of the happy hour specials. My favorite is the overflowing shrimp cocktail, while my wife likes the steamed clams in a shell. Service is excellent considering its popularity

After finding $40-50 parking fees in Pismo and no restaurants actually open but just charging for parking, we headed for Grand Ave and Fins not knowing what to expect. Parking was free, but just be alert to the very silty sand or you may get stuck (look for the dead grassy areas). Remarkably Fins was not only open, but had... More

We come here often after walking our two dogs on the beach. We normally go on a Saturday, but just discovered that on Sunday afternoons they have live music on the patio. The entertainment is very mellow and laid back - very relaxing! We usually order a Bloody Mary, which is excellent, and appetizers. Our favorite appetizers are oysters on... More

We arrived around 7pm and we were seated quickly. But, we waited for about 10 min for someone to come over and get our drink order. There seemed to be about 5 or 6 servers they were not busy by any means. Finally, a young man took our drink order and promptly brought them to the table. Then we waited... More

I like Fin's so much that I put in "rentals next to Fins on Grover Beach" and promptly rented a place in the trailer park nearby. The place is great. Good food. Can never decide between the Clam Chowder Bread Bowl or the Fish. And, the salad is great. Nothing there is bad! They have entertainment, and good drinks. I... More
