“Two different dining experiences”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We always stop into Curly Tails bar - upstairs - on a visit to Marsh Harbour for a cracked conch sandwich. Food this time was good as expected and not terribly expensive. Very casual dining experience, people were there in shorts and flip flops. Also went to the more formal restaurant located downstairs - more of a long pants kind of a place. We were there with new friends and had a very nice meal. Calamari was a nice appetizer. I had a seared tuna dinner which was a nice portion. Wait staff was attentive but not overly. Entrees were around $25-$30. Staff was attentive but not overly so. Restaurant was busy on a Saturday night.

“Always Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

The grilled grouper sandwich never disappoints! We love eating upstairs in the bar area because the view is lovely! The fish is always very fresh. The conch fritters are also a decadent treat to share as an appetizer.

“Best on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

This isn't inexpensive dining so you expect the food, service and atmosphere to be top notch....and it is. The restaurant is very nice with traditional Bahamian architecture and decor. There are multiple servers per table, expected in fine dining and the food is excellent. A great date place. So is Wallys but the marina atmosphere at Curly Tails adds to the experience.

“wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Best fried fish ever, sweet, polite service, nice setting, just wonderful. One sign of a well trained and managed restaurant is the amount of attention the wait staff gives you. in this case, other waiters checked in on us to refill drinks... just wonderful.

“Beautiful Sea View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We didn't actually eat at Curly Tails but the bar upstairs was so nice and the views so spectacular that we did stop by twice for drinks! Beautiful view of the Marina and the sunset...WOW. This was the cool thing about the islands, every place had such a neat "beach bar" type atmosphere that you didn't need to feel like you had to stop in and get a table and order. Most places also had cool bar areas that you could just stop in for a drink and appetizers if you wanted. It was nice cause you could see every place.
