Don't go in expecting a fine dining experience. This is a family owned business that cooks great food and will do what it takes to please. It's half fish market and half small restaurant. George cuts his own beef in the back when you order it and I've never had a better cut of filet mignon!!! The absolute best anywhere in the Keys.

The lobster bisque in the San Francisco bread bowl is absolutely wonderful...don't miss it when you stop in.

The freshly baked bread is also another fine treat! I cannot say enough things about these fine folks who work hard every day to bring great food to our tables (both at home and at their place). Thanks so much, guys!

They will cook the fish that you've caught--very convenient. It's very busy at night, with a band, making for a fun evening.

When we stay in Marathon in the winter we eat here at least twice a week. You can bring your own catch in and they fix it for you. They also have great daily specials. The owners are very friendly and the staff gives you great service to go along with your food. This family owned establishment is one of the reasons we love going to the Florida Keys. You need to go for lunch or get there early because they are only open until 6:30 pm.

I was really looking forward to eating at Fish Tales after all of the rave reviews. I was left feeling disappointed. The service was friendly. They prepared our food as we asked (most fish items are listed as fried on the menu, we ordered ours grilled). The atmosphere was what I expected (small, 'diner' feeling). The food was good, it just wasn't anything special. Except for the price, which was just a few dollars less than your average key's restaurant, nothing was exceptional about this place. Bottom line, it was average in most every way.
