We stopped in only to buy a couple pounds of fresh Key West Pinks. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but the owners were very friendly and accommodating. Not a fancy place, but looked tasty. Our shrimp were great. Stop in.

I didn't dine in here, although it was recommended during our stay, I did take home a pound of their fresh shrimp. It was AMAZING! Best I have ever had. The staff at the market was so very helpful! I will dine in next time...More

I'm local and this is the best place in town for seafood. The portions are good, the fish is always fresh and the staff is friendly. We go to lunch there several times a month. I buy my seafood from them. I recommend Fish Tales

The conch chowder and fritters are great! The fish sandwiches are also delicious! Bring a big appetite or get a take out box, because the portions are huge! The staff were all very friendly too!

Stopped by to buy a piece of Mahi Mahi. Attitude was they were doing me a favor allowing me to buy extremely overpriced fish which was no better than what you would get at the local grocery store.

We ordered a meal from this location while staying at Hawk's Cay, nearby. The food was very good. And when I showed up to get the meal, the service was prompt and warm. I would return.

We had fresh fish that we brought to Fish Tales to be cooked. They did such a great job preparing the food that we went back the next day and had it again. We started with the conch fritters and smoked fish spread - both...More

Did not eat in the restaurant this trip but bought fresh fish to grill at our rental. We bought yellow tail snapper fillets and Key West pink shrimp. Delicious as usual and always most helpful. Always a favorite stop when we are in the keys!
