We were in St Thomas for 2 nights and had dinner here our first night - it set the tone for our expectations! we had tuna and salmon, both were delicious and the drinks were good too. After a disappointing meal our 2nd night, we went BACK to Fish Tales for more cocktails. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, reasonable prices. Definitely... More

Excellent calamari! The native snapper is also very good. You can't go wrong with any of the sandwiches. Ate there 3 times and it was very good each time. Good place for families. It's not loud and right on the water.

We went twice, the first time for drinks only and it was a pleasant enough experience. We had other dinner plans, but returned a second time to enjoy the Manhattan chowder which was on our menus and the other fresh fish delights. We sat at the bar again, and it took a bit for the bartender to acknowledge us as... More

I'm so sorry to hear that you felt uncomfortable. First of all, we should have responded to your request in a much more gracious manner, and of course, I'll talk to the whole team about that right away. Your comments about rude customers and staff are even more concerning -- and completely unacceptable. I want to get to the bottom... More

Locally owned, native fish served in a casual friendly atmosphere. Wait staff is attentive, but not hovering. Open air concept allows breezes to flow thru while diners get to enjoy the in-coming & out-going boat traffic. A definite go-to!! Yum.

We came here for happy hour. Was nice to find somewhere on St. Thomas that serves oysters on the half shell. Didn't stay for dinner but would come back to try it out.

We had great fish sandwiches with hand cut fries, fried plantains, and Patron margaritas. We enjoyed the view of the marina and the breeze coming off the water. The fried plantains are definitely worth trying. We had them as an appetizer. They were a little sweet and with a delicate rum flavor. Happy hour starts at 1500. $10 Patron margaritas.

This is our 1st time in St Thomas, USVI & I had researched some of the restaurants on T.A. Most indicated you need reservations (within the town of Charlotte Amalie). Being we like to sight see & not hang out @ the resort, we did not want to be tied down to a time schedule. I don't think I came... More

After being surprised about the lack of fresh seafood on St Thomas, we found a gem in Fish Tails Bar and Grill. The restaurant is located in a nicer section of St Thomas, Red Hook, which I really appreciated. We were seated and served immediately. We had calamari and sushi for appetizers and they were both excellent. My husband had... More
