As a lifelong Florida resident and a frequenter of the keys for over 50 years I know and love Florida seafood. Many restaurants in the Keys are there for the tourists with high prices and low quality food although they do provide the atmosphere many expect. At Fish Tales Market and Eatery you share your dining area with a local seafood market. No Gulf view, tiki huts, or tropical music, but you'll get the freshest, best tasting, best priced seafood to be found anywhere in the Keys.

Fish Tales makes the BEST fish sandwiches of any restaurant in the Florida Keys. To compliment their sandwiches is the best coleslaw too. There are differnt styles and they are all excellent. The German beer is a real treat.

Our party of 9 had a wonderful experience here. We all thought very highly of the quality and preparation of the food as well as the wonderful service. Not only was our waitress excellent, the owner was present and hands on helpful too. They had a ginger sauce served with the coconut shrimp that was to die for delicious! The lobster (or shrimp) bisque had us wishing we had more hours and days later. This is a must stop if you are in the Marathon area. (This and Brutus!)

Lots of menu choices and local favorites. Food was very good and everyone was very friendly. Worth the stop when in Marathon.
