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!"

Went here because we had 3 kids and they had playground to occupy kids while you wait for food to show up or after they are done eating. Got here at 5pm on Sunday and not busy. But by 5:30 the line for table was nuts. The menu prices I thought were too high. The entrees for dinner topped out at $40. I can see why they don’t put prices on their website for the menu. I ended up getting fish tacos which was good and my husband got a $16 sandwich (yes basically a sandwich that should have been priced at $8 was $16.. ) so menu honestly was double priced what it was worth.

I will say the kids had fun at the playground but you have to supervise your kids cause it’s nuts in there with the unsurpervised kids. They also had a lady doing face and arm paintings for free, which was nice. Not sure if all that was worth the menu prices. This place probably gets crazy at night with the drinking as well. So probably would not return with the cost of food. Plenty of other places with cheaper prices.. when we were done we got out of there quick cause it was super busy.

Relaxed, fun, happy atmosphere on the bay. This place just has a laid back, fun vibe that makes it one of my favorite places around.

If you happen to be around when the soft shell crabs are available get them. They are outstanding.

Great selection of food and drinks. We didn’t try the drinks, but they sure looked good. The food was great, from local seafood dishes to interesting takes on tacos and the mango salads. Some tables are in the sand and others are in with the bars.

We had a great time here and just really enjoyed this little oasis on the bay.

Been going to Fish Tales for years. The drinks and view are great. It’s a fun place to take the kids with the playground area. The food is average. It can be quite crowded at times. I only wish they put an employee at the playground area. Unfortunately parents let their kids run without supervision and things can get out of control with older children.
