We stopped here for a late lunch on a cold Friday afternoon. The food was good, but the prices seemed really inflated. $20 for a crab-cake on a bun and bagged potato chips!

I always enjoy going to Fish Tales because everyone is having a good time - the customers and the staff. The food is good. The staff pays attention. I'd say that it would be an upgrade if they enlarged the bar - sometimes the wait...More

Drinks and atmosphere are great-I wish the food was better. So so at best. Playground and location are the draw.

This place is close by to the hotel we normally stay at in OC. It's convenient and most of us in our group LOVE it. You know who wouldn't love it? Someone who doesn't like seafood (i.e., like my husband). If you don't eat seafood,...More

Yes. I know we sat at a regular table. Although they are kind of tall tables.

Description
"...little slice of Paradise here in Ocean City, Maryland! Overlooking the Bay at 21st street, Fish Tales, located in Bahia Marina, used to be just a locals hideout. Throughout the years the "word" has spread about this treasure-on-the-bay! Still keeping its quaint, relaxed feel, Fish Tales has grown immensely since its doors opened in 1983. Whether you come by boat, car or bike, we have parking for all means of transportation. In addition to our original "Old Bar," we have added the "Boat Bar" and an outdoor beach area to meet your dining and cocktail needs. If you choose to sit on the beach, you can enjoy an umbrella-shaded table during the day or tiki torches by night. To satisfy your taste buds, we offer a wide selection of lite fare, full entrees and kids' meals, in addition to our eclectic daily specials. Swing by the bar and grab your favorite beverage, whether frozen, mixed or out of the tap; we have it all! We even offer some of our own personal favorites, such as Orange Crushes. These are complemented by our Happy Hour specials. So sit back and enjoy your libation in our two sets of Sky Chair lounges!"
