This has the best sushi in town. We have been a few times and the wait staff is great as is the food. Never a bad experience.

Called ahead for a reservation. Arrived early found no problem with the reservation in fact they sat us early. Sat outside a little windy and sunny but they have great wind and sun shades that you can see through. Friendly waitress, great food we had the pork chop and got mashed potatoes instead of the mushroom bread pudding which I'm... More

Returned to Fins after a few so-so dinners 2 years ago,upon recommendation of a few friends. Everything was excellent!! Annette, our waitress, was terrific in all respects. Dinners included salads, octopus, scallops, lobster, and mixed seafood....all very good or better. Birthday card and sundae were appreciated and well done. Of course the setting is the best and the weather nice....... More

Excellent food and service. The only negative was the noise level which made it hard to communicate. Definitely would go back because of the food. Excellent sushi

First of all the wait can be 2-3 hours for dinner. You can walk the pier and grab drinks, but that gets old after a while. We eventually got in the upper bar area and it was nice for cocktails. We were eventually seated and started with the Lobster Nachos. I was appalled by this dish, especially for $27. Its... More

JPiKapp, Owner at Fins at Sharky's, responded to this review

Lobster Nachos are not $27 (menu available online) they are $21, it's a smoked Gouda cheese sauce over the top (far from hollandaise), and it's by far our most popular dish. We take reservations all day every day and often will completely book up this time of year so I would highly recommend that. Sashimi platter is just straight raw... More

I enjoyed a great lunch with family on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Fins. We sat outside on the covered deck, and had a good view of the beach. The menu offered a good variety of lunch options, drinks, and desserts. The most impressive dish we experienced was the Strawberry Cream Puff Dessert. It was delicious, and enough to share.... More

Being directly on the beach with great views of the water is excellent. The waiter was excellent. Presentation of food was done very well. The food was good but not up to the presentation. The side (edamame salad totally lacked flavor). The crab cake sandwich was good but not great the same for the lobster roll.

Enjoyed a birthday dinner here shortly after sunset and enjoyed it. First of all, they should take Sharky's right out of it and just call it Fins. Its an outstanding stand alone restaurant. My dinner was the NY Strip and as expected, not much fat or marbling. Next time, Rib Eye! Our server, Simon, was truly outstanding. He took care... More
