“Amazing Views and Hushpuppies”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

We visited last August and had a great time! The food was very good, we loved the free hushpuppies we got when we arrived. Very cute touch. We sat on the deck right on the beach which was fabulous! You can tell that whoever was cooking really cared about what they sent out of the kitchen because of the high quality food presentation.

“Good place to eat”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

Very Clean place to eat in. Had a little bit of a wait time thou. The waiter was nice but very shy. I think he was new because he was also a bit slow getting us our drinks but didn't hold it against him. Everyone is new at one time. Do think they should have given him a helper to help him thou. The prices were a little high but the food was good.

“Too Bad they are closing”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

We decided to try this place on 10/27. We found out from a couple of firemen that were on the way in for pick up, that Fins was closing 10/31. They sold out to the U of Ga Culinary School.
Although they only had a few days left, they seemed to have all menu items available. The food was ok, but the service was subpar. I assume because it was the last few days, the servers seemed disinterested.
This is an excellent location and I imagine it was probably a great place at one time. I would hope the Culinary School would open it and operate it as a fun and affordable place to eat and enjoy the ocean view.

“Great views and well priced food”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We called in for lunch shortly after arriving at Jekyll Island. Glad we caught it open as it is closing tomorrow for the season. We had a great shared lunch of blackened fish tacos with accompanying salad. With 2 beers and a generous tip it only cost $20 - a real snip!
The views over the ocean are stunning and the Barbadian vibe of the place reminded us of a recent visit to Barbados. Recommended for a casual place to eat.
