Visited in the winter, not a lot of people. The place was nice, clean, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was good. Indoor seating is best I think, otherwise you have a bunch of hungry birds staring at you the whole time.

Stayed in Port Aransas on vacation the week between Christmas and New Year'so Eve, liked this place so much, we ate there twice. The first time, we had just arrived in Port A, so we had seafood. The shrimp po boy was delicious. Fresh Gulf Shrimp, delicate batter, great french roll, divine. The last meal we had in Port A... More

Waitress tried to take our family of fives order without writing it down. When we got our food everything was mixed up. Food was kind of bland and service was subpar. Way too pricey for what we received.

Our waitress , Whitney (the red haired lady) did not write our order down and mixed up our burgers! The fish is a bit bland and the food was all around bland! my daughter ordered chicken tenders and those were the only good part. There was no one in the restaurant other than us and a few other people so... More

Had a late lunch on the patio at Fins, food and service was great. I had the Fish Tacos (($12.99) and my wife had the Mahi sandwich, served w nice crispy fries.($12.99) Sat on the patio with views of the fishing and tour boats. Nice assortment of cocktails and beers also. I highly recommend.

We looked at this site for recommendations of a place for lunch while visiting the area and found the perfect spot. Our waiter was prompt, efficient, and friendly. We ate on the deck as the weather was so nice and watched the boats and birds. We had the shrimp po boy with onion rings and the crab sliders with fries!... More

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...
