My husband andI had the pleasure of being served by Rachel, a most personable and informative young woman. I had the Hogfish BLT with french fries. The sandwich was served on a soft, delicious brioche roll and the fries were crispy and well-spiced. My husband had the shrimp caesar wrap with onion rings and thoroughly enjoyed both.

I was expecting to be wowed due to the positive reviews. Not only was I not wowed, it was just an average meal. The service was good; courteous, personable and professional. Maybe the dinner menu is more impressive...

Just first class from food to service to atmosphere. Brilliant. We had a number of dishes but the stuffed halibut was not just special it was world class.

Truly enjoyed coming here. They have a large choice of seafood dishes, and everything that we ate here was very good. We especially enjoyed the lobster bisque and scallops. The service was friendly and efficient. Seating both indoor and outdoor comfortable and the tables not too close to one another. For the quality of food, the price was quite reasonable.... More

On a Monday night while visiting Cape Coral, we had dinner at the Fish Tale Grill in Cape Coral. We called ahead and learned that they do not take reservations. We arrived at 6:45 PM and were greeted by the host who estimated the wait for an outside table would be about 30 minutes. We went to the bar and... More

We simply love Fish Tale Grill. The best seafood restaurant in S/W Florida! Go with the lightly blackened grouper for a fabulous meal!

Fresh fish with great pairings of vegetables, rice, and potatoes. Great service and excellent wine. You may have to wait for a table but it is worth the wait.
