The service was friendly and we never felt forgotten! The atmosphere is pretty chill and reminded us of a beach bar and restaurant we had visited when in Barbados, sand floors and all. The hammocks looked comfy, and plenty to see while dining. Secure Playground...More

They had a diverse menu. But we came to this place later at night. And the kitchen closes at 11pm while they are still open until 2am. That is ridiculous. Some people like to snack while drinking later at night. It was a nice atmosphere

"...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!"
