Our Story

Family, Friends, Food.

These are the three things we value at FINS Grill and Icehouse.

In 1987 a girl from Dallas meets a cute boat captain on spring break. Together Captain Kelly and Beth Owens would begin a journey of adventures. In 1996 Captain Kelly bought the fishing marina where he worked, Deep Sea Headquarters. While working and raising their family they saw the need for a family-friendly way to serve fresh seafood. A new adventure was born in 2005 when they opened FINS Grill next door. The objective was simple. Serve the freshest seafood and/or customers’ catch of the day. FINS Grill has since become a family favorite for visitors traveling to Port Aransas. “You Hook ’em, we cook ’em!


Why FINS Is A Must

For The Kids

We have a kid friendly menu selection, an under sea mural of fish and local boats, and the opportunity to see real life pirates as they disembark on the mighty Red Dragon that is parked behind FINS.

For The Adults

We have an amazing full bar that is constantly serving some of the best drinks on the island as well as a Palapa Bar overlooking the Port Aransas Marina.

All these factors come together in creating the atmosphere the owners envisioned in 2005, and the great food keeps customers coming back as they eat at one of Port Aransas’ must stop places to eat FINS Grill and Icehouse.
