Always a great stop!

One of my favorite seafood places in town! The fried shrimp and grits is my favorite meal to order. They also make the BEST hush puppies I've ever had. It's hard to compare other seafood to fish tales

The place was packed when we arrived and it took a while for a table to open but was well worth it. I had the special, mahi with a cream sauce with crab, and the fresh veggies, mmm...Amazing!!!

We had a good meal at the outside seating at this popular waterfront restaurant. The cold shrimp and crab dip was very good, and I enjoyed the fish tacos, and my husband had the fish sandwich, which could be broiled or fried. He chose broiled, and wasn't disappointed. It was a local fish, cannot remember the type,something I had never... More

This was my 4th visit. Fish Tales reminds me of a slightly upscale fish camp. If you enter from the front you walk straight into the bar which is often quite busy and noisy. It's a local's watering hole. The dining "porch" is glass walled and looks a little west of north. The view is about the extent of the... More

Seafood is consistently good. Service can be slow, but the view is beautiful. Seating can be limited. Outdoor seating is available also. Good place to take kids. There is a separate bar area.

This is one of my favorite places to eat fried seafood. It's off the beaten path, is well appreciated by the locals, it's clean, family friendly, and provides a good value in quality and price. It's not flip-out fabulous, but it's good. We always stick to the basics here, fried appetizers and entrees. I'm not sure about their fancier options,... More

This is a wonderful spot for families and adults. We were there in Dec. so the sides were closed up, but you can imagine smells from the sea in the warmer months, while you have a fresh fish dinner. The staff is excellent, and the prices are fair.

A good place for beer and deep fried seafood, if that is what you want. Nothing fancy, and I have previously tried their attempt at fancier fare which I wasn't too keen on. However, stick with drinks and bar food and you should be pleased. Also, nice servers and good atmosphere by the marina.
