A friend and I decided to try the Fish Tale Grill for lunch this week. I had the Ipswich Fried Clams and he had the Fish and Chips. We were both very pleased with our lunch as it was as good as if we were back in New England. I would definitely recommend this for a very good seafood lunch.

The only downside is that there are only a few tables inside under air the remaining tables are on the deck in the front of the restaurant. There are umbrellas over the tables but we were caught in the rain and had to run inside. Fortunately we had finished our meals.

Thanks for the review!!! We strive to make sure all of our food is as good as your New England Clams. We always will have the best and freshest products for the best food and experience. Also, we are in the process of expanding to accommodate more indoor seating. We are hoping to have that open early in the fall. Thanks again for the review!!!

Fresh fish, great salads, good service. Fish portions are not anything to write home about, but the freshness makes up for it, Grouper sandwich was above average.

The lobster bisque was wonderful but both the crab cakes and the salmon seemed bland. This restaurant is a lunch only addition to the best seafood market in Cape Coral. They are working on expanding the inside area of the restaurant. Now most tables are on outside patios. Service was excellent.
