If you are looking for somewhere to go very casual with good food, this is your place. Theexceptional dishes are their Loaded Nachos and 7 Pepper Wings and the Seafood Chowder. The drinks are generous, and they carry a few local beers. All in all, one of those "Where do you want to go,/" I dunno, let's go to Fish... More

11am to noon Sundays. Half price Bloody Marys and Mimosas. They are Good. There is a special reduced menu but peices are only good for the Hour of Power.

My boyfriend loves this place... me not so much...The service was terrible. We had to hail the servers for drinks, silverware, to take our order, the check, to come and get the money for the check. Not exaggerating. Had the special which was seafood in garlic sauce - ok. The frozen margarita was $8.00 in a styrofoam cup and was... More

Visited Fish Tales on a Thursday Afternoon with several friends. It was Happy Hour and we had no complaints. Good wings, not smothered in sauce and cheap drinks. After reading the bad reviews, I was a little hesitant in going but I was glad we did go. The service was good and the waitress was funny and fast. Will go... More

My wife and I stopped in for a couple of beers this afternoon. At $7 each plus tax and tip, it was almost $20 for a couple of cold ones. That's just too darn much. We'll drink our own onboard from now on.

Good food but very pricey for what it is. Appetizers just under 10, grouper sandwich at 15, beers at 7. Cool vibe and view but you are definitely paying for it.

My husband and I have visited this restaurant quite a few times for Happy Hour, Power Hour on Sundays and anytime hours. The fish tacos and wings are our favorites. We tried the Fish Bowl with added crab legs and it was very good. The wait staff is stellar! Very friendly and knowledgeable.

My husband and I actually grab a burger and beer here probably once/month. It's not ritzy, but if you like eating outside, a water view, and some amazing people and boat watching, this is the place. I can't give it a better than average rating because the food is really average....but nice wait staff, and always attentive.

Great place to have a cocktail or an ice cold beer. We stopped by to take a break from fishing no problem to dock and dine. The fish spread was very good and so was the fish tacos. We are locals and we visit this place often. Great laid back relaxing atmosphere. If you get a chance to stop by... More
