Even though the restaurant was packed on the weekend, our dinner came quickly. I ordered the grilled shrimp, which was tasteless and puny, but the coconut shrimp was amazing. I ate off my boyfriend's plate.

The grilled veggies were limp tasteless and wet zucchini and squash with 3 broccoli florets.

Bartender was intoxicated and the bar was very disorderly. We put our name on the list, checked back multiple times, and eventually they completely misplaced our name and we were no longer on the list after and hour and a half.

Bought my wife a top shelf margarita from the bar and it was horrible (tasted like a glass of sweet and sour). Unfortunately the drunk bartender made it. I will not be back. Service is horrible. Very disorganized.

Food is over priced, good, but does not make up for the terrible service and the wait.

Fins is always good. Staff is always friendly and fast. Good cocktail drinks. And can't beat the view if your sitting outside. Food is always hot and good. We always enjoy Fins and our kids do too.

We've eaten here two years in a row on vacation in Port Aransas. We were very happy with the choices we made - all yummy fried fish and shrimp, great tropical drinks, and well-done sides and appetizers. Try the watermelon margarita - so good. We had a sweet, efficient waitress, and it was an all-around nice evening. Go here.

We read the reviews ahead of time so we were prepared for the reception! Yup, the hostess were by far some of the rudest that Gulf Coast has to offer!! The servers were a breed of their own but were attentive and did their jobs. My wife felt that the Bluefin Margarita was a little heavy on the Blue Curaçao and too light on the tequila. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer and it was on point, we loved it! I had a Cesar side salad, and it was for the most part ok with the exception of quite a bit of wilted soggy lettuce. Our meals arrived as ordered, in a reasonable amount of time. The food was flavorful but not so overly seasoned that you couldn't taste the seafood itself! Try the Gulf Fish and Shrimp it's pretty tasty!! Don't forget to tip the ladies tip the ladies tip the ladies!!!
