Maybe it's made better because of the bad experience next door but this was perfect. The weather outside was perfectly refreshing, the food was great, the drinks were great and our server Ryan was even better! The kids loved him and they are the difficult ones to please even though I manage a bar and grill! Thank you Fins and... More

We have enjoyed going to this restaurant every time we come to Port A, but for some reason this time we had a bad experience. We were there on a Thursday evening about 5 pm.

Stopped in for dinner with our family one evening. The restaurant was very busy. Our waiter was attentive, but one of our orders came after everyone else had almost finished their meal. Found the food to be average at best.

It was perfectly blended and the frozen pineapple kept it all frozen for the entire drink. We ended up coming back again on our visit just for the drinks! The food and service was also good....

Gotten mahi mahi twice from there and both times it was awesome. If you bring them fish that you caught they will prepare and cook it for you. We have not done that yet but next time we catch redfish we will definitely have them do it. Great bar and fun atmosphere.

I will say this, it definitely was a combination of award winning service (Brett our server), good vibes, awesome views, and excellent food (grilled fish and shrimp). The place was hoping when we arrived but we were seated quickly right at the waters edge where we asked to be. Brett was great at getting the drinks and checking to make... More

Place is located near the ferry. The view is great - lots of cool boats to see. The hostess was sweet and quickly seated us on the exterior porch and handed is dinner menus. 15 minutes later our waiter asked us if we were ready to order drinks - I had to ask him for a drink menu. Since we'd... More
