STYLE

The bright-yellow exterior is hard to miss. Inside, the vibe is surf videos, wall-mounted surfboards and surfing photos. The Fins tagline is, “It’s always summer on the inside.”

THE SCOOP

Open since 2003, this Bradley Beach mainstay serves what it calls TropiCali cuisine—a mix of Southern Californian/Latino/tropical cuisine. The service is friendly and helpful. Shawn Ryan opened the place with his friend, Pat Cuozzo, to bring high-quality, casual food to the area.

THE MENU

Order at the counter; the food is delivered to your table. Start with chips, guacamole and salsa. The tacos are delicious, as are the wraps and burritos. Salads include the Bomba Shack, made with coconut-sesame battered fish over mixed greens, with pickled ginger, seaweed salad and grilled pineapple. There’s a smoothie menu, and a kids’ menu that includes chicken fingers.
