This place is close by to the hotel we normally stay at in OC. It's convenient and most of us in our group LOVE it. You know who wouldn't love it? Someone who doesn't like seafood (i.e., like my husband). If you don't eat seafood,...More

The things that make this place great is also it's only downfall. GREAT place, GREAT people, GREAT views and GREAT food. Only downside is it tends to get VERY crowded and can have long waits.

Mudslides at the bar were delicious! The food not so much! Got Fish and Chips and totally tasted frozen. The fries definitely were frozen not fresh. The side Caesar salad was drowning in dressing and cheese, also had sun-dried tomatoes, which I was not a...More

There's always a wait here & I accept that. The waitress was great, but the Mahi in the fish tacos was overcooked, which was tremendously disappointing for a place that specializes in seafood. Their drink prices are also outrageous.

Although we didn't have the best server, we didn't run into what you are stating. They didn't seem too accommodating with any menu changes. For instance, my pregnant daughter in law wanted grilled chicken in her wrap... More

"...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!"
