If I am visiting Pismo Beach, I regularly walk down the beach to Grover Beach and eat a snack at Fin's. I cannot tell much about the interior as I am always outside dining at the patio. Fin's is serving one of the best New...More

Slow service, 55 minutes before order was taken. No vegan option. Overpriced. No prices on bar menu. Lukewarm chowder.

Great location, nice patio, adequate food, decent choices, but nothing memorable. If you're in the area it's fine but never my first choice.

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.
