We have been going to the keys for many years. After passing Fish Tales many times, decided to make a local stop and glad we did. Best fish sandwich ever. We love Mrs. Mac's but this is much closer to "home". It is now a must go when ever in Marathon.

If you enjoy German food, you will find the best here during the month of October! I had the chicken schnitzel with red cabbage & potato pancakes. So good! These potato pancakes are thick and have a nice crust, while the inside is SO moist! The flavor is delicious! The sauerbraten melts in your mouth, no knife needed :) We... More

Our trip to the keys was filled with fabulous meals thanks to all the honest reviews. Would never have thought twice about this place from the outside but the reviewers said, "Don't miss it" so we didn't. Didn't research the hours well enough and they close early but we made it in the door about 30 mins before closing and... More

One day we were driving up and down the Keys to avoid the rain. Around lunchtime we were in the character-less strips of Marathon that have grown out of control and were not looking forward to eating at a chain. Luckily we found out about Fish Tales and pulled right in (just as we were about to pass it at... More

Very tasty. Huge portions. Fresh. Reasonably Priced. A must go. Try the conch salad and the PO boys. Oh and do not miss the key line pie. Its homemade.

My family stayed at Key Colony Beach for one week. Based on the tripadvisor review, we went to fish market/restaurant for dinner. We found lots of locale having dinner there. We ordered their 'catch of the day' Mahi sandwich and found it cooked perfectly, the best meal I had for the week compared to Key Fishery and Sparky. You won't... More

Our family went fishing on the Marathon Lady and took our catch right next door where they cooked it right up for us! AWESOME! It is one of the best seafood restaurants I have ever been to and I've been to my fair share. I'll take this place over a nicer, fancier restaurant any day!!! Every one of the employees... More
