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

This place is alllll about fresh seafood. A quirky, fun little place. We fished on lady Marathon, walked over with our fresh catch and handed it to the chef...it was amazing!!!!! Half was fried to perfection, the other half was blackened to perfection! Great service, rubbing elbows with the locals. Can't wait to go back!

The fish was very fresh and a good buy for the money. We had grilled and fried mahi mahi sandwich, and it was less than $25, including drinks. Very light, flaky fresh fish. A good quality place.

We are in Marathon on vacation and I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. We went for lunch today. We ordered a burger, shrimp, and beer battered grouper. All was very good! The grouper was delicious. Service was fast and good. The only negative was the key lime pie we ordered for desert was still frozen. Other than that it was... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Fish Tales. We're very glad you were happy with your meal!!! We're only unhappy that you didn't like your key lime pie....and wanted to explain... About our Key Lime Pie...we make the pie in house, using fresh key limes from our trees, make our own crust & our unique recipe is "frozen"... More
