Food was decent, 40 minute wait for food ridiculous

There were about 6 tables of customers in the restaurant and this wait was not explained by the waitress at all. Also, they have a coupon on their website that they only accept if it's printed out which really left a bad taste. By the time the food came and the after the coupon fiasco, it wasn't a... read more

We went to Fish Tales for first time last night after boating. It was about 7pm. Not crowded. We liked the look and atmosphere of the place. We had two friends with us. 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

If you like frozen seafood, canned vegtables, and steak cooked through a pizza oven at premium seafood house prices look no further. This is the kind of place where they want you to get loaded before you order the food because it's substandard and they know it. It's a decent enough bar. Until the drunk and belligerent owner gives the... More

The pet-friendly place is right in the water and accessible by cars, boats and paddle boards. No frills, but good food, good drinks and great people.

If you like dining along the water then this will do. Nice staff but the food was not fabulous. Casual bar atmosphere. Bathrooms are "out back" behind the restaurant. A bit pricey for the fare they provide. They were accommodating to our large group (11) though and seated us along the long bar. I would not go back if I... More

If you're looking for fine dining, look elsewhere. If you want good food, nice water views and friendly staff, this is the place for you! Sunday brunches are particularly enjoyable (if the weather cooperates) and the food is always tasty. Sure, it's bar food, but it's FLORIDA bar food, which makes it great. Lots of seafood on the menu, and... More

This is a place that you won't find just by driving around St. Petersburg. It is on a side street that most people wouldn't normally drive on. Two of us had the fish & chips. The fish was not rubbery and greasy tasting like you may find in many of lower priced restaurants. They give you three big pieces that... More

I love hanging out at this restaurant/bar staring at the water and reliving growing up in St. Petersburg. The food isn't that great, but there is a wide variety of beers and the location is ideal. It has a very "St. Petersburg" feel to it. It once had a seafood boil once a week or month that was great, but... More
