Description: "...little slice of Paradise here in Ocean City, Maryland! Overlooking the Bay at 21st street, Fish Tales, located in Bahia Marina, used to be just a locals hideout. Throughout the years the "word" has spread about this treasure-on-the-bay! Still keeping its quaint, relaxed feel, Fish Tales has grown immensely since its doors opened in 1983. Whether you come by boat, car or bike, we have parking for all means of transportation. In addition to our original "Old Bar," we have added the "Boat Bar" and an outdoor beach area to meet your dining and cocktail needs. If you choose to sit on the beach, you can enjoy an umbrella-shaded table during the day or tiki torches by night. To satisfy your taste buds, we offer a wide selection of lite fare, full entrees and kids' meals, in addition to our eclectic daily specials. Swing by the bar and grab your favorite beverage, whether frozen, mixed or out of the tap; we have it all! We even offer some of our own personal favorites, such as Orange Crushes. These are complemented by our Happy Hour specials. So sit back and enjoy your libation in our two sets of Sky Chair lounges!"

“Great Place to Visit!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

We make it a point to visit every year. Just a pleasure to be there, on the water, with drinks & food at hand! And watching the boats come in with today's catch is just a plus!!! Also great place to rent for a day! <3

“Excellent place for lunch and place for kids to play!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile


Really enjoyed the atmosphere, the sand and the view was great! Kids really enjoyed being able to play and also liked their frisbee plates. Had a Rum Runner and the extra shot of rum in a large straw was a great touch. Food was very good and decent sized portions. I would highly recommend this to families as a good place, and plan on coming back the next time we are in OCMD

“YUK!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Fish tales is about what the food tasted like. My wife got the Crab Mac and Cheese ($22 mac&cheese) and the crab must have just eaten the fish. When we complained the waitress said, Sorry about that. The fish and chips my MIL got were no bigger then a Gordons Fish stick and the shrimp salad was just shrimp mixed in what tasted like salad dressing. This was our first visit there and sadly our last. I can say that we were not charged for an iced tea and soda. Thanks Fish Tales for emptying our pockets while we left hungry.

“Very unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

The food was delicious and the service was great. Very unique set up. Indoor (open to the outside) or outdoor seating. Outside seating was on sand. Some swinging chairs for enjoying after dinner drinks. Plus a playground for the kids. FUN!
