We ate lunch at Fish Tales after a morning dive nearby. It was our favorite of the restaurants we tried in St. Thomas. Very fresh seafood and we had an excellent, attentive server. It is open air, so we were comfortable going in shorts and hats. We enjoyed watching the boats sail in and out of Red Hook Marina while... More

Went there with family of four based upon suggestions from a few people. Had fried snapper and cajun snapper. The fried snapper was not seasoned at all, did not finish the food. The salmon came out cold and was sent back. Three minutes later snapper served now with salsa on top. NOT GOOD, sent back did not have meal. Children's... More

We had breakfast (great big croissants and coffee) before and drinks (mojitos) after our ferry ride to St Johns. Fish tails is located a few steps from the ferry - very convenient for us. The waitresses were very nice and service, food & drinks were great. Nice view of the boats coming and going. Highly recommended.

The food was good. There is a variety of choices for everyone to choose from. Our waitress was very friendly. I enjoyed our meal and I would go again. The view wasn't bad either 😀

I found the food to be fine and the atmosphere good. The setting was very nice. The service...well not so great. Nothing earth-shattering, just that it was mediocre...like no one was really that sincere about providing an excellent experience. The prices were about the same as all over the area, although I was a bit shocked at the price/quality ratio.

We stumbled upon this place after coming off of the ferry from St. John. Against my initial protest, my husband and I agreed to eat at Fish Tails despite it's "touristy" feeling. We assumed that because of it's close proximity to the ferry and its touristy-looking facade, that the food had to be terrible. Boy were we wrong. We had... More

I would rate this much higher except for the exorbitant cost of the meal. The service was excellent, very good and friendly, and the atmosphere outstanding. But when a routine shrimp dinner, with fires and slaw cost $43, there is something wrong. Yea i know everything is shipped in, but the shrimp too? A shrimp po-boy was $17. They had... More

Went on our first evening in St. Thomas, so we weren't sure what to expect. It was a Friday night, and a bit off season, but we walked right in and sat down. Server was quick with our drinks, but it took awhile for her to stop back and take the rest of our order -- she had several tables,... More

This a great place right on the water; the perfect Caribbean feel. The fish tacos were delicious. Yet it's their Bushwhacker that has us coming back for more. After driving around the islands trying Bushwhackers, we have come to the conclusion that Fish Tails has the best!!

Thank Kim B
