We had a good lunch after an industrial cruise in the bay. Fins is a fine casual restaurant offering several good lunch selections including a large hamburger, fried shrimp, fish filets, or chicken fried steak. Good food and prompt service!

You can either dine in or outside. The view is captivating in the sense that you can view the channel where the large cargo ships come in or out from the Gulf. Fins has great hamburgers! Very unusual!

This casual restaurant is located on the north side of the island, just south of the ferry landing. We had spent the morning exploring the Port Aransas Nature Preserve nearby and were looking for some place to relax and have a bite to eat. We arrived about noon on a Wednesday around Christmas, and the restaurant was fairly quiet. We... More

We didn't have dinner here, but enjoyed a Ziegenbock Texas draft. We originally sat outside but it was cold so we moved inside and the staff was not at all put out by our move. Friendly, attentive staff. Nice location near the ferry dock.

The food was ok nothing to write home about. We head a beer and a Bloody Mary. Shrimp on bread and onion rings which were really good. My husband had mahi-mahi I thought it tasted fishy but he liked it. Probably would go back good service friendly staff.

Enjoyed a late lunch - shared calamari, a shrimp PO boy, and shrimp nachos. Shrimp were small but fried nicely not greasy. Nice plate presentation on all. Staff is friendly.

We ate here after our Pirate cruise, had a coupon for onion rings and they were amazing! So nice out on the patio...I want to go back! We didn't have any drinks but the people next to us had these fruity things served in a pineapple that looked fantastic. The service was great and the fish tacos were excellent! We... More

I craved Fins garlic fish all year after having it last year. It didn't disappoint this year. We like sitting on the deck and watching the boats. Staff very friendly and drinks good. As Winter Texans, we are there at least twice a week.
