We really enjoyed happy hour at Fish Tales. The kids had a blast on the playground and in the arcade room. The prices for happy hour drinks were ok. Everything was $5 or below. The food was nice as well $7.99 for 1/2 lb of shrimp, $6.99 for 3 cheeseburger sliders, $6.99 for mussels. We ended up getting dinner as... More

The vibe of the place is fantastic...the food was only mediocre though. French fries that were so over cooked that they were rock hard and a salad that had some salad dressing drizzled ok the edge of the plate but otherwise the salad was none dry. The waitress didn't come back until it was time to give us our bill....so... More

Nice to see Fish Tales back and open again. Comfort food is great and reasonable prices. Beer is always cold.

We prefer the bayside in Ocean City. Fishtails has excellent orange crushes, and we've never been disappointed with the food. They are pet and kid friendly. There is even a playground for the children. It's another great place to be at sunset.

We waited over a hour for a table, and they text your cell when your table is ready, but that's not the bad part. The prices are high and you get little food. I ordered chicken and that's all I got no salad nothing but chicken and it was only 2 strips. If I had a choice I wouldn't go... More

Kayla, We are so sorry that you experienced a long wait. Unfortunately our turnover rates for tables are much longer then other restaurants due to the kids area and other fun activities, which affects our wait time. We are also operating with new staff under new management. With that being said, you shouldn't have just received two chicken strips. Did... More

We are locals and sometimes get treated like tourists. I don't necessarily mean that in a bad way, but they don't care about tourists because you are there for a week and they never see you again. We are there ALL the time, even by boat. I kept my boat there at the harbor for a year. Food is good,... More

Great place for fun-seeking adults to grabs a few beverages and a bite to eat, by day. Soft shells are awesome when they're in season and the salad with Tuna is exceptional. Drink prices are decent and the setting is spectacular.

Fish Tales has something for everyone. Two bars, lots of great food, & a pirate ship playground for the kids. The staff is friendly and it's fun to sit in the sand and eat and have a few cocktails. Boats come back in with fish and they clean them right on the dock at the restaurant. Come casually dressed and... More

Great atmosphere, great bar tenders, I enjoyed the Casados so much I was looking forward to getting it this coming weekend, but you're closed for the season. I'll be back in July and will definitely be there!

"...little slice of Paradise here in Ocean City, Maryland! Overlooking the Bay at 21st street, Fish Tales, located in Bahia Marina, used to be just a locals hideout. Throughout the years the "word" has spread about this treasure-on-the-bay!
Still keeping its quaint, relaxed feel, Fish Tales has grown immensely since its doors opened in 1983. Whether you come by boat, car or bike, we have parking for all means of transportation. In addition to our original "Old Bar," we have added the "Boat Bar" and an outdoor beach area to meet your dining and cocktail needs. If you choose to sit on the beach, you can enjoy an umbrella-shaded table during the day or tiki torches by night. To satisfy your taste buds, we offer a wide selection of lite fare, full entrees and kids' meals, in addition to our eclectic daily specials.
Swing by the bar and grab your favorite beverage, whether frozen, mixed or out of the tap; we have it all! We even offer some of our own personal favorites, such as Orange Crushes. These are complemented by our Happy Hour specials. So sit back and enjoy your libation in our two sets of Sky Chair lounges!"
