“Best fish sandwich and tacos in the Florida Keys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Fish Tales makes the BEST fish sandwiches of any restaurant in the Florida Keys. To compliment their sandwiches is the best coleslaw too. There are differnt styles and they are all excellent. The German beer is a real treat.

“Flavorful & Fresh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Our party of 9 had a wonderful experience here. We all thought very highly of the quality and preparation of the food as well as the wonderful service. Not only was our waitress excellent, the owner was present and hands on helpful too. They had a ginger sauce served with the coconut shrimp that was to die for delicious! The lobster (or shrimp) bisque had us wishing we had more hours and days later. This is a must stop if you are in the Marathon area. (This and Brutus!)

Lots of menu choices and local favorites. Food was very good and everyone was very friendly. Worth the stop when in Marathon.

“Fresh and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We love this place. A small fish market and resturant that can be easily missed but one of the best places to eat on the keys! Everything is so fresh and reasonable!
