“Fresh fish!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

The fish is fresh and you can taste it. We ordered oysters and they were perfect. Their frozen drinks are really good as well. The wait staff is very knowledgable. I love to sit outside on the patio and watch the people at the park or on the street.

“Worst Service Ever!!!!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This restaurant appears to be really nice from the outside, but as soon as my husband and I walked into it, we knew better!!! There is an ice cream stand that is just inside the door and we actually came in for dessert. When we approached the counter, a young man who was one of the bartenders and standing behind the counter, never turned to look at us , but said someone else would be there shortly. No one ever came. The hostess finally appeared and told us that there would be someone there shortly. She did not look like she cared one way or another as she disappeared once again. Four other people were also standing and waiting to be seated. They got tired of waiting too, and left when we did. I don't think the hostess knew the difference!!!! The food may be good, but we will never go back to find out!!!!!

“family restaurant for summer/good mardi gras spot”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Fishtales is a good family restaurant , the prices are moderate but so is the food. this would not be a place for special times. it is located directly acrossfrom the new Pleasure Pier which makes it easy access from a day at the beach or the Pier. the staff is always pleasant. this is also a not spot during Mardi Gras Celebration, with its upper deck being a prime viewing area for the SEAWALL PARADE. but remember that is in February and the winds are quite cold! so wrap up!

“Food was average and you have to pay to park to eat here!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The food was average quality......very expensive AND you have to pay $10 to park in their parking lot to eat here! Probably won't go back if we are in area again.
