I must say that my experience was not the best. The first time I tried this place the food was not very good, but at least the service was ok. I decided to give it a second try and it was the worst decision. The...food was horrible and so was the service. And if you have any health issues this place will most likely make it worse. Not very clean and the staff refuses to wear masks. I only suggest this place if you want to get sick. Oddly there is a better seafood place down the street across the railroad. I believe it's called the crawfish shack.More

Went with family for a Lenten meal. Tried the oyster poor boy. Oysters were completely overcooked and had a fishy taste. Certainly not worth the price. Very disappointing.

Fish Tales is a relaxing, friendly place to eat with good food at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is nice and the staff is very friendly. Everyone should check it out.

A hidden little place worth a try. Much better than the big chains. The shrimp and rice is delicious. We come here regularly.

I brought my dad for a Fathers Day Lunch. His choice,one of his favorites and mine. The onion rings are the best around, fried green tomatoes and hushpuppies are delicious. I could make a meal out of appetizers. The shrimp and catfish are always a...treat. My only complaint is that they no longer serve beer. BYOB is allowed.More

The fish and shrimp are great....side items are just kinda ok. Make your own sides and let them cook the fish and shrimp!

My husband and I just happened onto this place. At first we thought oh great a hole in the wall restaurant. However, we were very delighted with the food and service. We will go back.

If you want some great fried catfish and shrimp, this is your place. Their shrimp are a nice size and you will get full. Their sides aren't as delicious but if you want fish, come here!

I had heard about this place. My wife and I stopped by to try it out. Wasn't that busy but the service was quick. I have never had fried green beans. We had them and they were really good! The steak that I had was...a little dry but very tasty. My wife loved her blackened fish. It was a pretty good experience.More
