Fish Tales is trying to be too much like a sit-down casual dining restaurant and bar versus a good local authentic dockside seafood restaurant. I was very surprised to not see flounder, trout, and other fresh local caught fish. The best thing we had was the lightly fried tuna appetizer. The fried fish was frozen Swai versus something local. The... More

Nice outside hang for a beer. Food is average and the staff very friendly. We had a nice breeze to add to our experience.

We ate there on Tuesday night. What a disappointment. We had eaten there several times in the Spring of 2015 and liked it very much. This time the food was only so-so. The service was lacking. My friend ordered the she-crab soup. It did not come until the salads came. I ordered a Caesar Salad and to my surprise I... More

I've been here multiple times because of the great view this restaurant has. It is situated right off of the marina and if you get a window seat you get to see a great marsh scene. The food is just OK, nothing special. They do have good happy hour specials; we come here sometimes after work. Will probably go back-... More

Hey Julie, So sorry you had a bad food experience. We try to keep the menu simple but great. Would you say that the selection of menu items is the problem for you or the actual taste of our food? The more detailed information we have the better chance to fix our issues. Thanks so much for coming by and... More

...place to go in RH for low country boil. Great water views, and the crab cake sandwich is always a favorite too.

We love the atmosphere out at their tiki bar. The marina and outdoor eating go along with the whole Fish Tales experience. There are tons of choices on the menu and the food is great!

This place looks like a hole-in-the-wall, but the food is delicious. They serve fresh seafood as well as land-lubber dishes. I especially love eating outside under the shelter when the weather is nice. Very casual atmosphere suitable for those just getting in from a day of boating. Great views of the marsh.

We love coming here purely for the laid back, local and puppy-friendly environment. It's such a great place for relaxing with your friends and family. And I love how Fish Tales supports local community. However, the service (at times) can be really disappointing (hostess and wait staff). This last visit was a doozy...But we will come back and we will... More
