Casual bar on Salt Creek

Good place to visit for casual outdoor experience convenient to Harborage Marina. Love their hush puppies. Between the four of us we had fish tacos which were good, side salad was great, and very good grilled mahi sandwich. Took a bit long to get the appetizer. Large selection of beer.

The only thing this place has going for it is........quite frankly I can not find one good thing to say about this place. The waitress was uninterested on reading me the available beers. There special Yellow Snapper sandwich was so bland the only taste at all was the weak blackening season. I guess they take the name Fish Tails to... More

It's hard to find anything awful or anything great about this place. The fried food we had was typical and the beer, of course, was typical. The service was friendly. Yeah, it's a little shabby but that adds to the charm. Yes, it is "on the water" but more of a canal than wide open water. But it is relaxing... More

Not a good restaurant, food was terrible... Ordered what they said were grilled fish tacos, they were not grilled enough, pieces of fish were extremely small!!! We sent it back for additional grilling!!! Their homemade potato salad was terrible. They serve Sutter Home wine's, very low class establishment. Go someplace else...

Very enjoyable seafood and sandwiches served in an outdoor area on the water by a marina. Watch the boats go by, see the occasional dolphin, and have a beer or two while you're at it. The smoked tuna dip is great!

I've been here many times, mostly on the weekends. This visit was with a customer that's right around the corner. Seating is all outside under roof or at the bar. The peel and eat shrimp are always a favorite. This trip had conch fritters (delicious) and grouper sandwich which was good, but there is better all over FL. Plenty of... More

Had a chicken quesadilla for appetizer which was good, though it wasn't properly grilled so the tortilla wasn't crunchy. Then had the $5 fish taco special which was delicious. Would rate 3.5 stars if I had the option.

I've visited several times and even brought my family. It's such a unique venue and I just love it. Food is fine; Service is fine; Atmosphere is fine - on the water. Go and try it out. It's fun.

The waitress was nice but got our order messed up. we all ordered fish sandwiches except my husband, he ordered nachos. Fish was not fresh and looked... More
