We had an excellent lunch at Fish Tails before heading out on the ferry to St. John. The open air restaurant has great views of the water and is located next to the Red Hook a Ferry Terminal. We had shrimp po-boy and buffalo chicken sandwiches. The drinks were good, food excellent, and friendly service. It was actually one of... More

I had the seafood pasta, now I'm a big fish food lover, I've eaten at many restaurants, living in NYC, and I can say that this is the best sea food pasta I've ever had. They also have a banana cream cheese "pie", best thing EVER! Must try if you're around red hook.

Started out good with the greeter giving us essentially our choice of where to be seated for a late lunch in a nicely located but, at the time, nearly empty outside eating area. Unfortunately, after bringing our food to the table, our server seemed to forget about us. I had to get up from our table and go to servers'... More

Hi there, I want to reach out, as I'm sincerely sorry that you received anything but consistently attentive and welcoming service. I'm nor sure of when you visit was, but I will be following up with the team, as this is something that we do not want to become typical. Thank you for sharing your honest thoughts here. I hope...

My wife and I recently visited the restaurant, a short taxi ride from The Ritz-Carlton. They had wonderful food and very tasty drinks. It is a casual setting, with a loud ambiance and walls that open to the harbor and the breezes that abound in the area. The staff was courteous even when it was obvious that they were under... More

The food was good and the atmosphere was very lively. As a party of 9 we had some issues being seated. The first time we tried the place we were turned away with a "2 hour wait' from the haired host who didn't even bother to look at his list. The second time we tried was a bit easier as... More

I want to apologize on behalf of our staff for any "attitudes" you encountered, as customer service is one of our top priorities. That said, we would never turn a customer away intentionally, and we're sorry to hear that that was your impression. We'd love... More

The blackened grouper was amazing, as well as the sautéed spinach. Nice casual dining sitting on the water with great food. The staff was very friendly and helpful with ideas to order. Yummy!!

Had two great meals with our family. Fish was very fresh. Sautéed spinach was great, ordered it twice. Service is great but delivery of food is a little slow, but it was worth the wait.
