Portions are huge, seafood is fresh, location is hip! This place is an excellent choice in Port A. If you travel you know how expensive everything is these days. Fins was a great value as is most everything in Port A.

We started with the crab cakes and drinks. Hubby had a pina colada in a hollowed out pineapple. I had a Green Iguana. They were all good. For dinner, I had the shrimp tacos and my husband had what I think was called "Bayou Shrimp...More

Ate here with family while on vacation. Fish tacos were great as was the Vera Cruz fish which was made with amber jack. Our son ordered the chicken fried steak and it was a bit tough. Wait staff was very attentive. Will eat here again...More
