We love to go to Fin's when we visit Port Aransas. Our server was so friendly and the harbor view was great. I had delicious fried shrimp and really cold beer. We will definitely be back!

We are back again and happy to see Fins open. Nice view, excellent food and service. You can eat inside or go out on to the porch and watch the boats and coastal birds. It's very relaxing.

This is a rather hard review for me to write. I really enjoyed this restaurant, but not necessarily for the food. The neatest thing about this restaurant is, the restaurant!! This is a place where you can practically set in the water and eat, or...More

Taking the coastal road from Corpus Christi, Texas toward home was a must. It was finally long enough after Hurricane Harvey to be out of the way of serious cleanup work and time for this traveler to revisit familiar grounds. Fins was not only open,...More
