Love this place for outdoor dining over looking the cove on Lake Lanier! Good food, good service and a huge sand pit for the kids! Draws a crowd particularly during warm weather months! Very family friendly! Indoor dining available year round and on weekends they bring in live music so if you like a party you can find it there!

The atmosphere as a lakeside eatery is on point. The food is fine but certainly nothing special. I would never make the trip by car for the food. If you're on the water, it's worth a stop for a meal.

Thank you for dining with us recently at Fish Tales. While I'm glad that we were able to meet your expectations as a lakeside eatery, it's concerning that we did not meet your expectations in the area of food. We strive to be the best dining experience not only to our boaters, but also to our guests who arrive by... More

We have only eaten here a few times and have loved it every time. The food is fantastic...I esp love the grouper fingers :) The setting is lakeside, and there is a marina which also provides the boating atmosphere. Folks can drive their boats up, dock, and grab some great food and beverages. Glad Fish Tales is here to provide... More

Their fried grouper fingers and shrimp combo is a treat! Everything fresh, cooked to order. The fried plantains are awesome as is their unique tartare sauce! Only problem is the latest menu has so many new wonderful items, I will have trouble chosing what to try next visit! Can't wait!

Very good food and big portions. This is right on the lake with a great view. Service was outstanding! Check out their sister restaurant Pig Tales across the lake

Great place to go after a day at the lake but they are very busy on weekends and you may have to wait awhile for a table. Used to be pet friendly but not anymore so that was a bummer but overall the food is good, the beer is cold!

It's not elegant. It's not close to anything except Hideaway Marina. But it is awesome. The service is always friendly. The food is always yummo. Excellent fish and seafood! Some kick butt drinks too!

There are surprisingly few lakeside restaurants around Lake Lanier, and this is the best one that we've been to. You can arrive either by boat or car. The restaurant is perched up on the hill 50 meters from the water. It has 2 great beaches (sandpits) for the children. Lots of fish dishes, but also some other fare too. Decent... More
