We have two yellow labs, Seneca(90lbs) and Daisy (75lbs) and a 15 year old so choosing a good place to eat while on the road was a challenge. We used "BringFido.com" and found this place. It was only 20 minutes down beautiful country roads and located on the marsh leading to the ocean. The waitress was great! The dogs were... More

Thanks for the review!! We actually host a "Yappy Hour" on the 3rd Wednesday each month for all our 4 legged friends on our outside Tiki Hut as a fund raiser for our local Dog Park....If you're ever in the area on a Yappy Hour night stop on by, it's a lot of fun for all. More

We are a military family, stationed at Ft. Stewart so I suppose you could call us locals to an extend. Over the course of the past three tears we've tried countless restaurants in this area including a fair share of seafood places. So far Fish Tales is our #1 spot to go. Food is fresh, cooked to perfection and reasonably... More

The food is so good it will require another visit. I had the She crab soup....Yum Yum, grilled fish sandwich....another tasty treat. And of coarse the Hush... More

We ate at Fish Tales for lunch after visiting nearby Fort McAllister State Park. The restaurant is located along the river adjacent to a marina. Parking can be found in front of the restaurant as well as across the street. While it looked like there might be indoor seating we sat outside at a table overlooking the marina. A waitress... More

The outdoor and indoor eating areas over look the inter coastal water way and is beautiful all times of... More

We love this little out of the way place on the river in Richmond Hill, GA, but at lunch today, the coconut shrimp were not great. Way over breaded, and didn't taste like coconut at all. I was disappointed! We do frequent the place since we have a 2nd home not too far away. Next time I'll opt for the... More

Arrived there after 7 and ordered the fried scallops and shrimp. Plate looked delicious. Shrimps were a nice size but some scallops tasted like it was frozen food. Hush puppies were to die for. Corn on cob could have been bigger but delicious. Gnats and mosquitoes were awful. Next time, dine indoors. Service never came to refill drinks and ask... More

We selected Fish Tales because of its location overlooking a little marina on the Ogeechee River. The setting is great with dining on the patio, deck or in the smaller inside dining area. The night we were there the service was subpar. It seemed like the young servers had little direction in carrying out their tasks. But we worked thru... More
