All reviews seafood lobster bisque sea bass fresh fish oysters rockefeller salad key lime pie cod soups onion rings bread filet fish market new england great lunch outside seating great food and service
I stopped at their fish market today for fresh fish. I will never return. Masks are discouraged for customers and employees. Obviously, they don't need business. I would have rated it a zero if I could have.
Visiting Florida for a month, we have now visited Fish Tale and their companion seafood market four times . . . They have been spectacular each and every time. Outstanding fresh seafood in great variety - and service with a smile.
Today we ate outside...on the deck and shared delicious mahi taco’s, blackened grouper, teriyaki salmon and jumbo shrimp. Topped it off with terrific key lime pie. Our server was Katie who was fun, efficient and helped us make super food choices.
Cannot wait to go back for visit #5!More
Zero masks were worn by any staff members or patrons. The server was bending over less than a foot from our face without masks as were the bus boys. An old man walked by our table coughing. Had I known this restaurant was a Petri...dish for covid ahead of time, I absolutely would not have dined here.
I’d you take the pandemic seriously even in the slightest, please save yourself a boat load of anxiety and dine elsewhere.
I was in town for 1 day and made the huge mistake of joining friends to eat here, assuming they would at least be doing the bare minimum to keep their patrons safe.More
Thought we would have a terribly long wait, but ordered a drink at the bar , she came and searted us outside. Food is excellent! Cant go wrong w oyster rockfeller, spring rolls , a bit pricey, but soooooo worth it. Eveything on the menu...is great! Definitely go there!More
Finally a restaurant that 'specializes' in seafood that truly does. EVERYTHING we ordered not only tasted fantastic and cooked to perfection but, the freshness! Oh my goodness! All the dishes seemed to have been fresh-caught just for our meal.
CALAMARI ... Amazing!
OYSTER ROCKEFELLER ......Amazing!
SEARED TUNA ... Amazing!
SHRIMP SCAMPI ... Amazing!
THE SERVICE ... Amazing. Our Server was MELANIE. She is the only one we met so I cannot comment on any other staffers. I can tell you that when it comes to KNOWING HER CRAFT, MELANIE is TOPS! ... So warm. So friendly. So personable. And so, so knowledgeable of what the restaurant offers.
THE AMBIANCE ... Amazing! ... In-door and out-door dining. Beautiful décor. Great drinks and wines (priced right). LIVE MUSIC. ... And clean. Very clean!
THE PRICES ... Amazing! ... Everything on the menu is fairly priced and worth every dollar. What would you be willing to pay for a FABULOUS meal and a FABULOUS night out? ... The answer for us is, as much as we can afford. Unmemorable restaurants are prevalent all over our area. Finally, a JEWEL in sea of mediocrity.
My wife and I have found our go-to place for a perfect evening out. ... Finally!
PS - Be sure to ask for MELANIE. You will thank me later.More
