Had a desire for some seafood so stopped by Fish Tale. The place is casual and the food is delicious. Started off with a mug of their clam chowder and it was chocked full of clams and potatoes. Very delicious. Next wife and I ordered clam strips that were tasty and fried perfectly. Only problem we should have split one... More

We have eaten at Lenny and Joe's Fishtail many, many times and the food is always good and consistent. I especially enjoy their chowder and the fried shrimp dinner. Depending on the time of year you will find it VERY busy but it is well worth the wait.

Make a stop here every time I am in the area because I know what I will order before I enter - lobster roll. Lots of lobster pieces inside a split bread bun with melted butter - yum! Very popular location with locals and tourists and have been told all the dishes here are delicious.

My husband went to Fish Tale based on the reviews they received. So glad we did. The service was fabulous and the waitress was so pleasant and patient. We had the mussels in a wine sauce for appetizer. The mussels were large and delicious. The crab cakes for the entree was also delicious- all crab meat - barely any mayo.... More

Meet cousins for dinner at the Fish Tale. This was there first time here and they enjoyed the classics like the whole belly clams. My wife and I were determined to choose items we have never had here and we were delighted with our choices. I would certainly get the baked stuffed shrimp again and my will order the shrimp...

Following the recommendations of other reviewers, we chose this seafood venue for an anniversary dinner. The interior decor is nautical without being tacky. Very steady customer base, obviously a lot of locals. Right away we were saved a warm loaf of grain bread, which we didn't expect and DID devour. But the seafood and side dishes were cooked PERFECTLY, tasted... More

We were in town for only three days but actually went back for lunch a second time to enjoy their food.

Living in Florida is nice, but the seafood isn't what you would think. We were up for our Grandson's Wedding, and I had a craving for New England Seafood, Steamers, Clams, COLD WATER Lobsters, etc. Well they have it here. Order what you like and after a short wait you'll be eating it.
