Shrimp po boy with onion rings, excellent, Crab cake sliders with sweet potato fries were excellent also. Outside patio dining with good views of the harbor. Good, speedy service, a little pricey but still good.

We stopped here after driving around the island because the sign said "Best Burgers on the Island! Come on in!" So we did. Ironically we did not have the burgers but my mahi mahi tacos and mojito was delicious. Great service as well. I loved the dining area on the deck. My husband had the shrimp po boy. Well seasoned...

Although our server seemed new (unsure of daily special), our food was served prompt and was very delicious! The grilled Mahi had an amazing flavor! Shrimp Tacos and Chicken Fried Steak were also good. The only detractor is that the prices were a little higher than warranted.

Great joint to enjoy seafood on the deck over looking the marina and boats. Large, plentiful plates of food. We had several different appetitizers and all were delicious, especially the nachos, covered with shrimp! Disappointed there were no oysters though. Our waitress had several tables, plus our group of seven, but she was VERY attentive to all our needs. Also... More

Food and service was great. Husband loved their fried onion rings..best ever. So our second time to eat there had fried shrimp and it was great. Ate outside on the deck overlooking the marina. Could view the Pirate Ship, which looks like it would be really fun, especially for the kiddos, but did not have time to go ourselves, as... More

Fun place next to the ferry landing. You can sit and watch the activity in the marina while you eat. A large varity of food and all is great. If you need a place to stop and rest and have lunch and haver a few beers this is it.

Went here on a weeknight during slow season. Food wasn't too bad. Had the garlic fish. It was very good. Not a fine dining place, but the food was good.

We love Fins'. I love the burgers and great salads! Their gumbo is the best ever! But in my opinion the bowls should be bigger or else they should give you a second helping. It seems like there's not enough. But don't let that discourage... the gumbo is superb! We used to live their fried shrimp but they changed the... More

Finns is right at the waterfront at the first intersection from the ferry. Sit inside or out. Good food, service, and atmosphere. My burger was a real good one. My wife's seafood plate made her happy. The waitress was attentive but not bothersome. We had an enjoyable meal together and will be back.

Thank Gordon K
