Absolutely outstanding! Have eaten here multiple times and haven't been disappointed by anything. The seafood items are amazingly fresh and the the non-seafood items are exceptional also. Can't get enough of this food and service.

This restaurant serves REAL grouper! Many Florida seafood restaurants serve fish they call grouper that is not Florida grouper..Fish Tales serves the real thing..it was well cooked and nicely presented. The service was much better than normal. Our waitress , Coral, was professional in every way. We will happily return.

The high rating of this restaurant is completely deserved! The service was great, the food better. My partner and I both had lobster bisque - the cup and bowl servings are generous - the soup is luscious. He had clams casino and loved them. I had cranberry macadamia nut sea bass. Describing this as "cutting" like butter would be unfair - it fell apart easier and had incredible flavor. Only great things to say about our meal.

The good: prompt fast service, salads and appetizer were very good, inside dining not loud and noisy so it was easy to carry on a conversation at your table.
The bad: lobster bisque has very little lobster and to much sherry, osso bucco, as with the bed of mashed potatoes it was on, were served cold, both swordfish dishes were overcooked.
I would give the restaurant 2 and 1/2 stars because it is mainly a fish store and the fish was overdone which of course is unacceptable.
