This restaurant is very quaint and yet has a very nice full selection of a menu. Parking is limited and so are the tables, but it is worth the wait. The food was fresh and prepared excellent. Great experience and a great meal. Casual attire is fine.

My husband and I frequent restaurant regularly and we have never been disappointed. Fresh seafood beautifully presented by friendly wait staff - what more can you ask for? Never have had room for the dessert, but there's always next time! This restaurant is a do not miss!

There isn't a whole lot I can say that hasn't already been said. This is #1 for good reason, it's amazing! Excellent food (very fresh), beautiful presentation, a lovely atmosphere, and great service! Went on a Monday night for dinner and it was packed. It's a small place inside so be prepared to wait a little. It's worth the wait! Parking is limited. The waiter said in the evening you can park in the pharmacy parking lot next to the resturaunt.

One of the best meals I've had at a restaurant ever. From the service to the food presentation and the quality of the meal, all were spot on. The trio seafood special (pan seared sea bass, grilled salmon, fried grouper fingers with slaw, bean salad and greens) and key lime pie I would not hesitate to order again. On top of that, the service was friendly and attentive and made you feel like a valued guest. I would definitely come back.

Our first visit to Fish Tale Grill was very pleasant. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was very good and presented beautifully. The desserts were yummy. We had the fried fish platter and it was very good. The prices are fair and compared to Sanibel very reasonable. The inside seating is pretty (looks like a boutique hotel dining room), a great place for a date night. The outside patio is big and great for large parties and kids. There is something for everyone here. I would come back and recommend this place to my friends.
