REVIEWS OF Fish Tales IN Maryland

Coral Humes

Great atmosphere. Good food. There's even a place for the kids to play while waiting for your order. The kids meals also come on a frisbee that they get to keep when you leave.

Melissa Ling

This place is really cool! The restaurant itself gets so much business and gets really crowded at times, especially during dinner. We tried to go twice for dinner, but it ended up being an hour and a half wait so we went elsewhere. I am so glad we came back a third time for lunch! It was less crowded then. The service was great! The waitress was very friendly (I loved Rhonda!) and the food was also great! The blackened flounder was sooo good; the spices and sandwich balanced each other. We ended up coming back the next day for this! I also got a shrimp bowl, which wasn’t as good, but still pretty decent for lunch! I’d recommend coming early!

Martin Sakanarski

Nice place to have a drink, but not for food. I order Calamari, over fried, seems like the cooking oil didn't been changed for weeks, I found some fries in my plate. I love Calamari but definitely the worst one I ever tried. Sorry for the review but that's the truth.

Robert Ferguson

Awesome playground where parents can chill in the sand too. Boats and dock, bar/food accessible while you wait for your table. Worth the wait!

Jerry Pritchard

Good atmosphere, happy hour deals were decent. Love the outside setting right near the water.

Manny Affonso

Reasonable prices. Great people. Exilirating atmosphere.

Michael Bell

Really enjoyed Fish Tales! The wait staff was very cool and food was great! I had the seafood burrito and was definitely satisfied with the quality and quantity. Wood definitely recommended.

Jonathan Hopta

Great food and service. Being on the sand is great! Makes it a lot easier to manage going out for dinner with little kids.

Jeffrey Masterson

Great place for lunch, dinner or just a cold one on a hot day. Casual and family friendly, reasonably priced and welcoming.


We ate here as a bad thunderstorm arrived. We waited an hour for a table and halfway through our meal the lightning was getting very close. We asked our server and the manager multiple times if we could move to the many open tables inside and under cover. Our server was concerned that we were getting wet and the danger of the lightning. The manager told us that we couldn't move to an open table because they were seating other people there. We had waited an hour and been there long before these other people. We should have taken priority. She showed no concern for our safety other than to tell us to hurry up and eat. It was ridiculous. I ended the meal soaking wet and our kids were scared from the lightning. Definitely not a safe way to eat. If not for the manager it would be a 5 star review because the food was great and so was our server.

Tedd Henn

We ate there Sunday afternoon and had a great time. They were full but not busy to the point we had to wait long. We had a table in under 10 minutes & drinks in 5 minutes of being greeted. Service was friendly & excellent. We ordered 6-7 apps. Everything came out quick and cooked to perfection. Highlights were the sliders & calamari. Another highlight is our kids got to run around in the Pirate themed play area while we relaxed with our drinks. If you want the feel of sitting on the beach with an awesome view, great food at a nice price, a place to take kids, all in a laid back beach atmosphere Fishtales is the spot.

David Snaith

The quality of the food here was a pleasant surprise. And the views out over the bay were spectacular. We were only in town for 3 nights and we ate there twice.

Nicki Campbell

Delicious food - kind of a wild crowd during the summer but worth the wait. Grab a drink and sit on the dock! Love that it’s like eating on the beach but no really - walkable from the beach too

Mac Griffin

Drinks were reasonably priced and service was very good. Nice atmosphere by the water but the shrimp I got were kind of grimy and rubbery. Their pimento dip was also candy-sweet for some reason and neither my fiancée nor I liked it at all. First visit so I'd give them another try but I was kind of disappointed after hearing good things about the food here.

David L

Very nice restaurant to eat at. The children’s playground is very nice for kids who are bored waiting at the table can go and play with there sister or brother and have a lot of fun! The service is great too. I recommend this place a lot.

Jack .

Fun place to go just about anytime. Staff was really nice even with a packed house that night. Will be going back next time I'm in Ocean City

Karen Hahn

Great place to go. Good food. Just don't get mozzarella sticks

James Kirchner

Very good food, GREAT atmosphere & GREAT service. We were there for lunch and we were promptly seated, which was a concern for us as Fish Tales has a reputation for being very busy with long waits. We had an enjoyable experience and very good food. However based on this experience I don't think its worth the 1 hour + waits that seem commonplace during dinner hours but maybe Fish Tales dinner menu is just that great.

Vaishali Sampat

Love the black bean sandwich here with salt and pepper bread! If you’re a vegetarian and looking for some options other than pizza this is the place to be. Also the servers are super nice and love the lively atmosphere in general with sand, water and sunset!

Aditya Shringarpure

Great place. The sea food burrito is a must try. Cocktails were overpriced and watered down, but cant complain much about that. And make sure you have your ID with you or else you wont be scoring the white band needed for drinks. They are really strict about that

Jonathan Higdon

It was ok edit: taking into consideration the owners response, and looking at their response to each review. I'll definitely be back to give it another go next time I'm in the area. thanks

Alicia Sheeley

Amazing atmosphere with great food and service. The wait time was super be 1.5 hours but our table was ready within 30 minutes. Everything was perfect!

Lisa Horwitz

We stop here twice a year on our 2 Assateague camping trips. Orange crushes are the best. Pretty fast service and ALWAYS friendly.

Eric Ritter

Fish Tales is amazing. Great food and drink selection. Located right in the bay for a great eating view. Indoor or outdoor seating. Definitely one of the best fish tacos in OCMD.

Barbara Karagiannopoulos

Great experience! Great food, great atmosphere and great service! The kids loved the playground while we waited for our table and food. The staff were all very friendly and the food was amazing. We all left very stuffed. Will definitely go again and recommend to everyone!!!!

hope7096 .

Great Venue! Love the atmosphere and the staff are super nice! Prices are spot on for the quality of food and drinks. I can't wait to go back!

David Reyes

Wasn't too fond of the apps. I had the chicken tenders and calamari. They were overcooked and also the batter on the calamari was too overwhelming with sodium. It's in a great location right next to the water. I loved the outdoor seating right on the sand. And a nice big adventure playground for kids

Michael Rollison

Severely long waits to be seated. I ordered a spicy margarita and it wasn’t spicy and lacked the kick of tequila. I ordered their cold cut sandwich and it wasn’t flavorful and was too greasy. However, our waitress was very nice and our food / drinks came out quickly. The views are also very nice here. I’d recommend coming for happy hour and enjoying the view.

Shera Cadalzo

Every time I've been there the food and service and fresh drinks are always on point! It's a fun atmosphere and you can catch some beautiful sunsets too!

Kathy Merchant

Great service. Fried green tomatoes were unsatisfactory. They were not green but orange n full of water.b$14.99 wasted.

Carrie Totterdale

This place was great. Atmosphere is fantastic. Food and service amazing!. I hope I get to go back some day.

Ian Grassie

Awesome atmosphere, ice cold beer, great food and service. Had the seafood burrito and conch fritters soo good! Everyone of us enjoyed the place. Highly recommend.

Colleen Mann

Great place to shop for fishing gear.

Lance Jones

Bill s

Of the 3 or 4 bayside, family friendly, seafood-y type places we've tried in Ocean City, this is my favorite. There is an extensive amount of outdoor seating with beautiful bay views. Our server was friendly and laid back. The food is delicious. Just one caveat--the place gets PACKED at dinner time. Go early (4 to 5-ish) if you don't want to wait 2 hours for a table.

Tech Sales

Great atmosphere. The wait was worth it. While waiting grab a drink at the bar and go check out the marina. Always interesting things going on there. Great food.

Rebecca Donofrio

Service and drinks were good but the food was not. My friend had the crab and avocado sandwich and she took one bite and thought it was terrible. She is not one to complain. I was surprised the waiters didn’t ask if it was OK because the plate was practically untouched. I had the fried flounder sandwich which was soggy and more bun than fish. My husband liked the ahi tuna tacos. The location is great but I think when you have such a high volume of customers you are cooking In mass quantities which compromises the quality.

Robert Boerner

A cool mix of casual and chic. A playground for the kids. Great food. A good stop along the beach journey.

Andrew Crowe

Great spot next to a marina. Kid friendly. They handled our big group well. Our server was friendly and she hustled our drinks and food no problem. The wings had good flavor but were soggy. Fish tacos were good. Most of our group left but some of us stayed to play corn hole and have more drinks. The staff were super nice to light an outdoor heater for my wife. Next time we are in OC we plan on going back.

Hunter Weller

Good food. Always very busy so there's a pretty long wait. I guess the food is worth the wait. Outdoor, indoor, and bar seating. There are jet skiing and floating tiki bar rentals. Adults only lounge with hanging chairs. There's also an arcade and playground.

Beau Bailey

There was a nice play area for the kids outside but since we went so late everything was closing down. We would definitely want to go back during the day.

Kelly Kutzer

Beth was a great waitress. She kept our drinks full and was always smiling. This was our first visit but not our last. The food was delicious and plentiful!!!!! The atmosphere was spectacular and there was plenty of fun to keep kids busy while waiting.

Brie Anna Barely Brutal No More

Great family friendly atmosphere. A pirate themed playground built into the reaturant for your children to play at while you wait for your meal. There are picnic tables to eat at that sit in thr sand on a doc that overlooks the bay it has great vewis all day but especially at sunset. You can also come via boat and dock it. This is a real hidden gem. The dress for this restaurant is super casual and laid back. Think of this place as a family friends Secrets that is also less jammed with people and way cleaner. This is a must go to before leaving OCMD. You will regret not going here.

Courtney Waligora

Highly recommend the tiki bar boat tour. Rick was awesome!

Susan Bledsoe

We both had flounder sandwiches. Nice size peice of fish. Tasty, moist...we'd get again. Atmosphere was great. Only issue....staff wasn't interested in helping another's customers. We needed ketchup and sauces....took forever more than 1/2 sandwich gone by the time we got condiments. Not team players. Would we go again?. Yes.

Jake Simpson

Great place to chill and get drinks. We weren't totally thrilled with our food. The fish was a bit over seasoned. Over a great time and we will return

lawrence kelly

Loved the restaurant. Great location to watch the sun set and enjoy a drink or two

Lynn Olah

Dinner and drinks with family and Beth was our waitress well she is now officially our sister she took care of us like we are family. She had our drinks refilled before our finale sips which made us very happy.

Jennifer Carra

Great place. Nice to see the sunset. Fun place for kids

Teresa Ninkovich

Awesome first time there we loved it!!! Food was great and the view was beautiful, we will definitely be back next summer!

Mike Prekopa

Stopped in for lunch. Started with the Carolina Hot Chicken and Biscuts. Awesome flavor. A little spicy for my taste, but I'm not a huge spicy eater. The Turkey Cobb wrap was fantastic. Service was great. Our waitress Leah made sure to answer all our questions and offer recommendations. Would highly recommend!

Raymond DiSanza

The outside play area is fantastic. Great cocktails. Very good food. I had the seafood burrito, which I wouldn't do again because it just seemed like a confused meal (asian fried rice, shellfish salad, enchilado burrito, guacamole chips, just too many different things going on for me), but the apps were great, as was my wife's mahi bowl.

Dalton Adams

Great place to eat! My new favorite lunch and dinner in OC. Reasonably priced with a huge selection of items. Our favorite is definitely the seafood potato bake it is phenomenal! Only issue ive had is they dont have a very good fresh brewed sweet tea but hopefully that will change. The place is very open with multiple ways to dine whether outside or in and the staff is always wonderful! Will continue to support a great Ocean city experience!


The food was great! There were areas where kids can play and overall it's a nice time. When we went there was a 30 minute wait and very crowded.

Lory Miller

They have gluten free rolls and wraps. Blackened chicken sandwich was good!!

Foulk Fam

Food was good, but very busy! Thankfully they had a playground for the kids to run around while waiting. Try the ahi tuna tacos!

Yolanda Liggons

We went during lunch time which was so much better than evening because wasnt so crowded. The food was just ok, had flounder and conch fritters(not good at all). The fish was very fresh though. The kids loved it because if the play area so I would say it's very kid friendly

Matthew Rose

My family and I love Fish Tales, especially my daughter. She love playing on the playground there. The atmosphere is such a relaxing atmosphere. It feel like you are on a Caribbean island. The food is amazing too. This is our second time here. We’re going to come back every year we go down to Ocean City.

Chris Midgley

First off, Lexi was great. My wife happen to see the lacation as we were driving downtown. We went online and liked the menu so we went there. What we liked: The view especially as the sun gets lower. The kid friendly playground. Variety of menu items, we both tried the Seafood Baker. Never had anything quite like it. It was great. Definitely would come back.

Brian Wilson

We loved fish tales. Extremely kids friendly with a playground to use while you are waiting to be seated. The kids meals are served on a frisbee you can take home. As for adults, my wife and I loved our blackened flounder. The staff was friendly and quick. Highly recommended.

Jessica Bye

Nice set up went on a Thursday night around 10 it was empty no music. The bartender was very rude we got our food and left right away.

Shannon Lewis

My first time there was delicious and reasonably priced and there was a sunset cruise you can also go on

Cortlyn Nace

Good food. Our waitress was great. It was an amazing atmosphere. I love how they have a pirate themed playground for the kiddos.

Christine Burrhus

Food was okay. Seafood burrito was not good. But the conch fritters and frog legs were. Tacos were disappointing and basic. Great atmosphere and service. I think sticking to bar food is a must.

Rita Koprowski

This was a great place! It was near the water, a playground for the kids, it was open seating, good food, good drinks, swinging chairs, it was for everyone - families, couples, etc. It was fun!!

Dave Hebler

On the bay side. Kind of hard to find but worth finding. Casual atmosphere. Food was not terribly expensive, came quickly and tasted great. Service was excellent. Got kids? Plenty for them to do. From a playground in the sand to a arcade! Bar is busy but still family friendly.

Joseph Batog

This was the best wrap I've had in forever! Great Family dining with something for everyone! The service was fantastic and fun!

Adam Connelly

Went for lunch on Friday right when it opened. We got a great table right by the playground and the kids could just run free (with our supervision) as we waited for lunch. Had some really great drinks. Highly recommend the RumRunner or Creamsicle. Food was decent and everything was price fair for a beach location.

Allison Scully

Great place if your looking to eat outside. Tables are in the sand and overlooks the water. I recommend going for happy hour - half price drinks and apps. Would definitely come back next time I'm in Ocean City. Great place to hang out, eat good food and have a good drink.

Eric Koruzo

Decent food, outdoor and warm though, no ac but great place for kids and families and very sunny. Good service.

John Burdey

Excellent! Ice cold drinks. Delicious food and plenty of choices. Amazing view of the bay and boats docked. Highly recommend.

Glenn Davis

We ate here with my parents, wife and toddler. The kids menu was all fried food options. My mom and wife both got the seafood burritos... Decent amount there but extremely salty which leads me to think it's not fresh. We all shared the tuna bowl appetizer which was decent and mozzarella sticks which were standard issue. The chicken ceaser was a generous portion and probably the only thing I'd recommend. Dad had ribs which were a good portion. I had the steak and crab cake, steak was good and crab cake was very salty also. In general everything was meh at best, about the same as every other one time try and done restaurant in OC. But at least I got this sweet plastic $260 cup to show for it.

Rachel Snell

Very fun bar right on the bay. Plenty of benches to sit on if you dont get a table or the hammock chairs. Ledges along the docks too to set your drink on and enjoy the veiw. Awesome playground area for kids as well. Bartender was super nice even though it was quite busy. You can also get floating tiki bars that have a motor and take you around the bay for two hours.

Kristin Szafranski

Restaurant advertises as being dog friendly - but they really aren’t they only have a small portion of the bar where you can have dogs and then you have to go up to the bar to order (but where that is the dog can’t be) so if you are there by yourself with your dog you basically can’t go. Super disappointed that that we couldn’t stay and were misled by their advertisements in a dog magazine.

Bernie Winiarski III

Took my kids for a meal and was told an hour and 45 minute wait who would wait that long and it seemed as though their were way too many adults there looking for a drink. I don't really know if this is a great atmosphere for children. It was very very crowded and I peeked at the menus and didn't look like it boasted a huge selection sorry but no good in my book and when we walked in they put this strap on your wrist you have to cut to get off it's supposed to look like fish tales.

jessica figurel

This place had decent food. I'd say it was average for the area, but the view was spectacular and the atmosphere was very relaxing. My husband and I loved the swings.

Tina .

Horrible!! I wish I could leave a zero star! I can understand this place gets was an hour wait, no problem. Issue was that after 2 hours..they told us another 45 min!! What made things worse is wgile waiting we ordered some was BAD! I got sick that same night. I think the ONLY reason this place is around is because of the tourist...and they got me too! STAY AWAY!!

Daniela Carvalho

Came here with a party of 9 at 7pm on a Friday night. We were quoted an hour and forty five minutes, left our name and proceeded to wait. Let me tell you about how beautiful it was to watch the sunset while we waited. After waiting the full hour and forty five we got sat and it was totally worth it. Food was amazing and so many options for anyone. Staff super quick and efficient. Amazing experience to spend with friends.

don esch

Great place. Good food. Long wait for tables.

robin Robinette-Powell

Didn't have a chance to enjoy the bar. I only ran into the gift shop for a t-shirt. The did have plenty of things to enjoy while at the bar. Beautiful view of the bayside, they have daily weigh ins right there so you can check out the biggest fish if the day. Outdoor games for kids and adults alike, like corn hole and several others. Definitely a cool place for the while family

Gianna Brown

First off, the food is beyond DELICIOUS. The service was fast and amazing, Megan was the sweetest waitress. The view is so beautiful with the water right in front of you.Thank you fish tales for such an amazing lunch! Be back soon!

Sonia Vazquez

This place is great, but gets very packed, so make sure to come early.

Colt Galeria

This is the store at Anna Point Marina, exceptional customer service

Kevin Eyelures


Great place to eat, it's in the sand so no bottles for alcohol if you have a preference. Very busy even when we visited on a Monday, the wait was over an hour so we had to come back Tuesday and got in right away. There is a playground in the sand for your kids if there is a bit of a wait, so the place is very kid friendly. Definitely worth a visit if your in the area, food was a little pricey but top notch!

David Benfield

Go early as gets very crowded, but a fun place with good food

Leelee S

Yes, yes, yes! The atmosphere was relaxing, the staff was friendly, and the food was amazing. I had a chicken bowl just to be safe, and it was delicious!

Mark Lukenich

Damn good chicken and waffles. Outdoor seating is on a sandy beach There is a kids play area and also a 21 and older area to sit in single person hammocks.

Richard Candito

Great atmosphere and great food and service a place you must visit and eat you won't be disappointed

Allison Young

Fish Tales is always been my favorite restaurant in Ocean City! Perfect setting on the water! Food is delicious and service is top notch!

Steve Lane

Had a great time again. Service was very good as well as the food and drinks. We will definitely be going back several times while we are in Ocean City.

Colleen Dunnigan

We haven't been in many years as we weren't fond of the food. But glad we went because it was great! The atmosphere is the best but we all enjoyed our lunches. We're definitely going back.-- And might I add, my father is SO picky and everything is "alright" wherever we go. He said "well, we have to go back to Fish Tales again soon!". That says A LOT! lol

Jeff S

There is only outdoor seating. Just make sure you dress for the weather. Great views of the sunset. Staff is very friendly. One great thing was how quick food and drinks get served to you after you order. We just had dinner there on 7/21/19 and it was at full capacity when we were there. Even though they were packed, we got a table for 6 in about 15 minutes. We ordered frog legs and calamari for appetizers. Both were excellent. My wife and I had different Ahi tuna wraps. Both were excellent. I had a few “ Big Fish” mixed drinks. Went down smooth and helped cool me off in the 100° heat. I would def go back again!

Amanda Adams

One of the best places we ate in OC. The atmosphere was super laid back. We went during the day but I got the feeling that at night I might not want to bring my kids. Highlights: alfresco dining with a bay view, adult swing chairs, arcade, pirate themed children's play area, beyond sausage meat substitute, camouflage hot sauce. (Really good mild, vinegar based hot sauce)

Mike K

Awesome spot for food and drinks, right on the dock bayside. Good atmosphere for families and couples alike. My wife calls it "Seacrets for families" and that's spot on! The bars don't have a ton of seating, but they do have some 21+ only sections where you can hang in some hammock chairs or bar tables. I highly recommend the seafood burrito and the crab cake sandwich!

Matt Rounds

It's got a great vacation atmosphere and the service was commendable. The location is nice, right on the bay with some mini golf right next door. The food we had in my opinion was meh. It is kind of pricey, I'd say on average plan to spend $75 to $100 for 4 before gratuities. It was a good experience overall.

Kimberly Mason

Excellent. What a fun and relaxing atmosphere. I didnt bring kids on my initial visit but i could see them enjoying it. I loved the swinging chairs. They are fun. Good drinks and good food. The cheesesteak was awesome. Very fresh, tender steak which is hard to find

trayman0206 .

What is with the unprofessional thugs at the door taking the IDs? I have never seen such a thing. Literally fighting with customers and acting like rude, unprofessional thugs! One was eating while putting the bracelets on people and talking with his mouth full. The other one was talking to people like he was an uneducated idiot. We turned around and left! Didn’t even have to walk in the place to see how it was! The thugs at the door made that decision for us. Hiring rude employees says enough about what kind of place this is. No thanks!

Jarod Quant

Awesome place with the kids. Big playground in the restaurant and very fast service.

s vaughn

Family friendly restaurant and great view of the boats at the marina. It is also nice to see the fishermans come back to shore and weigh in their catch of the day.

Christina Eustace

This place knows what they are doing. Well managed, personable staff and great food. Good for families with kids.

Allen Adams

I always have a good time there! Food is good, atmosphere is great, and service is wonderful!!! Pina Colada is my drink of choice when I go; delicious!!!

Darrin Lindsay

You will definitely need to ride the bus after drinking these orange crush.

Miguel Tavarez

It looks perfect, good food And drink servers are very nice and friendly I had a short ribs and cheese steak loved it

Jamie Tsottles

So just a few points off of of 5 star. Great atmosphere and people. Neat features like the lights in the bay water which attract small fish. Swinging chairs. Wonderful open air dining. Head boat launch, skiff and pontoon rentals. Poor mark on consistency. Orange crushes tasted drastically different from bar to bar. Bar staff did not know when the kitchen was closed. Door man was smoking (unprofessional). Like I said, just off the 5 star mark. All and all worth the trip. I may even rent a skiff tomorrow.

Nikki Maples-Reynolds

Environment, experience, location, friendly was meh. The indoor playground was awesome. The setting was ideal for seeing the sun set. Our server was amazing. Wait was hour and a half on Friday night. Appetizer buffalo scallops were best thing we adults tried. Cheese wiz fries for kids were not fully cooked and soggy even on parts not smothered in cheese. Youngest child got grilled cheese that was dried out. The apple slices and graham cracker were good. Oldest child got a pizza and he said it was perfect. Mussels were bland The steak and crab cake were disappointing

Patricia N

Come here a few times. Fun place for family. Very kid friendly. They have Tiki bar boats that you can reserve. The food and service is good. Easy return back .

Amy Arent Leonard

Busy on a Sat night on labor day s Weekend. Be prepared to wait an hour for a table but VERY worth it. Good drink menu and food

Andrew Petruccelli

a definite must go when in ocmd prices are average for the area unique seating in the sand big play area for kids lounging swings for adults get there early lines get long

Shanna Hoffman

Fish Tales is my favorite place in ocean City. The dining area/bar are on an outside deck that faces the water where boats dock. They have adult swings and a kid playground. The atmosphere is so much fun! The food is amazing and the kids get their meal on a take home frisbee. The wait staff is always pleasant and prompt. I can't say enough things about this place. Haven't had a bad experience yet.

lois albert

Went to Fish Tales with my family yesterday evening and had a great dinner and drinks..our server Marielle took very good care of us..we will be back again next year..great time to be in OC!!

Arnold Baker

The atmosphere is fantastic and so laid back. All of our food was delicious and the drink selection was perfect. The prices are a bit high, but well worth it. Whenever we visit Ocean City we make sure to go to Fish Tales.

Melissa Groller

We put 90 bucks plus and they came after us never again we put the money in there. What happen to it not our fault. NEVER AGAIN WE ALWAYS PAY PLUS EXTRA ALWAY TIP 20 BUCKS PLUS. NEVER WILL COME HERE AGAIN I THINK ITS CUZ WE ARE BIKERS!!!!!!!

Bob Mickonis

If you go during peak season expect a wait, but it's worth it. Great playground for the kids, coupled with good service everytime. Food is a little pricey for what you get in my opinion, but if your ok with paying a little more for the experience it is worth every penny.

Erik Sarcasm

Excellent beach-on-the-dock lunch spot. Great food, quality and selection, beautiful fun scenery. A must stop for every visit to OC

Emily Payne

Awesome restaurant and bar. Great location, fun space with lots of color, music, and sand. It was busy, which was expected. Although busy, our food still came out in a decent amount of time. The drinks were good and the service was great. And lastly, the food was really delicious. I would definitely come here again.

Michael Shoener

Awesome food and the calamari was great. The kids play area is perfect for the little ones to play while you relax and eat

Figgle Wiggle

Great service, delicious food, favorite place to go to. Abby our server was wonderful. Usually a wait but that's to be expected, lots to do while you wait.

Betty Sheffield

Wonderful I loved the place. Great service, friendly staff and owner. Going back this, need more time to try it all.

Jack Dibner

The view is phenomenal and the atmosphere is really trendy. We also got indoor (covered) seating right away. This is where the good part ends though. The service sucked. It took about 30 minutes to get food from when we ordered. This was at 2PM on a Saturday in the first week of June (during the off season). The food wasn't that great either. The shrimp was really meaty, but not too flavorful. We got about 3oz of fish total for the Mahi Tacos and it was refrigerator cold. Overall, this place has a lot of potential and they're obviously doing well, but I'd go here for the atmosphere only, I wouldn't order anything.


Fun bayside bar and outdoor eating. Playground area for kids so family friendly. Also dog friendly on the boardwalk side.

M Caruso

Dave is definitely THE MAN

frank K

Very cool atmosphere and set up. Really liked the layout and having my feet in the sand while eating dinner. Very popular place so expect to wait for a table if eating dinner. Great place to go for just drinks. The food was OK it wasn’t bad or great but again the atmosphere, setting and drinks were great. They rent tiki boats and other type boats here which was very intriguing until we seen the price which was ridiculous. Tiki boats 75$ per person per hour doesn’t make sense per person should be flat rate per hour or something. Place is cool worth checking out especially for drinks but there is definitely better food to be had at other places.

Charisma Kozlowski

I just went for a girls' night out with my mom and grandmother and we started our night off at Fish Tales, having dinner there. We had an enjoyable experience! Decent food, friendly staff, and fair prices... my only complaint is that some food should come in meals, not separate. I ordered chicken tenders and got my fries separately, but usually it comes together as a meal most restaurants - at least the ones I go to. They have enough patrons eat and drink there, so I don't see why they need to take extra money from people. Other than that they seem very family-oriented and it is a great place to dine, I would definitely go again.

Eric kim

Fast, friendly, and high quality food. Interior/exterior and the whole sand yard environment. amazing.

David Brown

Awesome experience. The views are incredible. Calamari was great. The Ahi taco was one of the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!!

Katie Connolly

We have been here time and time again and never fail to receive amazing service and delicious food. The atmosphere is super relaxed yet there is this awesome buzz of positive energy. Their employees seem to work together so well and you can definitely sense that they all consider each other family. Megan C was our most recent server and she absolutely rocked it, her personality was so fun and her service was second to none. You guys do such a great job, can't wait to come back again next time we are in town!

Kristen Logozzo-Ernes

Fish Tales is a really cool place! Great food amazing atmosphere and food. If you have little ones they have a lady that does face painting. They also have a play area covered with sand! Super cool! If you have to wait for a table the kids are satisfied!

Michael Mize

Happy Hour is a great deal. Fast, friendly service with an onsite opportunity for a post-meal cruise.

Great little bar where you can sit outside near the water, play some games, and enjoy your drinks and food. Good atmosphere, friendly staff. Can be a bit busy, but that's expected.

Pretty much as the name implies, they offer pretty much fish and not much else. But I can always find something, turkey wrap minus the avocado, hit the spot. Dinners are pretty pricey but it's an interesting place and worth a visit.

Emil Rekasi

Anna Ahmer

Had a great time. Atmosphere was great, company was enjoyable. And our waitress was awesome.

Neil Zahradnik

There is a playground for your kids to play in while waiting to get seated. You can consume alcoholic beverages while they are playing on the ground. The food is good enough considering tour kids will be too tired from playing to be heathens at the table.

Nice family place to eat and have a drink. Playground, hammocks and beautiful sunsets over the OCMD lagoon. Portions are kind of small but food is really good. Nice service. Usually crowded. Nice mini golf fields nearby.

Me and my boyfriend went to fish tales for dinner and we loved it! They have the the best drinks in ocean city. Food was great too. Definitely would recommend!!!


Killer place to eat. Best fried shrimp I've ever had. Sit in the sand and enjoy the bar and boats as well.

Richard Steele

This place is a great place to go. It has a playground for the kids and drinks for the adults. And the staff is friendly. Suggest it all day long


Really a great outdoor bar and table seating area. Tables in the sand , open air bars,drive up and dock your boat. We went for dinner, mostly sandwiches,not too much as far as dinner dishes. I ordered rhe flounder dinner,and after 10 min the waitresses informed me they ran out of flounder....Pretty disappointing for a place called "Fish Tales"....i ordered 2 appetizers that were ok. I'd go back for drinks ,and maybe an app., but not for dinner. I'd recommend it for drinks,or if your looking for sandwiches. If your looking for a nice seafood dinner ,o.c. has better places for that. I do like it though.

Has a great playground for kids as you wait to be seated. Right on the bay. They put in more umbrellas at all tables so you can go early and still eat without the sun in your face. They also added umbrellas to waiting areas by the bay. We went at 5 yesterday and only had a 10 minute wait.

Colleen Walsh

Friendly staff, good food and drinks. Family friendly with a nice play area and arcade. They have shaded seating and tables in the sand. Definitely a good stop.

Kyle Conaty

This place is always a blast! Right on the water and such a nice view. Plenty of spots to get drinks without waiting and a lot of outdoor seating. Didn't get any food here but the drinks were always delicious! Check it out for yourself and leave your own review!

I went to Fish Tales. It was very average. And when I rate average, I am usually being kind. Don’t get me wrong, the location is great. And it is very welcoming. I just have a problem with the flies, particularly at the bar. They are feasting on the completely exposed fruits for people’s drinks. I even mentioned it to 2 different bartenders, and both of them basically shrugged it off. Did nothing. All it takes is simply caring to cover the “fresh” fruit, that by the way, was also brown in color. I ordered only canned Corona. I also watched 2 separate couples leave just because of the flies. Simple fix, yet ignored by staff and management. Enough to make me choose another place.

We really like the new upgrades! My family comes here everytime we visit OC. Whether its a week or a day trip they always come here for lunch or dinner. You guys/gals did a great job upgrading the place and menu as well. The food taste and quality has definitely improved. Service has always been spectacular.....nice work.

Luis Woodridge

This place was simply the definition of alive. The layout, people and music painted such a great story I think I only captures a third of the amazing experience. Just know if you go at night it gets windy and the kids may get cold quickly. Food was superb.

Katie Miller

Great place to take the kids. Quick seating and service. The bowl was great. The orange crush is excellent.

Tanya Lynn

Best sunsets around! Great atmosphere, delicious drinks! The bar food is a little overpriced for what it is but I have heard good things about the actual dinner food. I'll have to check that out next time I'm in town!

Caleb Sorensen

As always, Fish Tales brings a fun and exciting experience to the table, not just food. The waitress we had was amazingly friendly and courteous. The only downside was that the food was not the best for such a high price.

J.W. Hupp

Other than the wait to be seated it was a fantastic experience. Food was excellent. Even the wait was mitigated by our great (IT by day) bartender.

Dennise D

Great atmosphere -lots of rock music (old hits) and food presentation! The mango and avocado salad was so good!!! 2 of us split the seafood entree, everything was delicious (a large crab cake, grilled shrimp, fish, scallop). All mouthwatering! The menu was certainly interesting (we did not try the fried frog legs!) My margarita was served in a plastic cup I think bc we were on bar side. The salt didn't hold on to the brim much. There's an area of this place that's got a sandy floor- perfect for keeping the beach day vibe going!

Amy Cortellini

Great atmosphere. The food was delicious and service was phenomenal.

J. Richard Carothers

One of the better bars on the Bay waters to hang out with friends. Good drinks and food and a friendly staff. A lot better in the "shoulder" season after all the vacationers leave.

Shannon Armstrong

There was a small wait during dinner time which was expected. Lots of places to sit and relax while we waited which is always a plus. Beth was our server and she was amazing, the food was amazing, the sunset was amazing as well. This is always a must stop on all of our trips to Ocean City and usually we stop by at least twice.

Ryan Burris

Great service but even better food and amazing atmosphere

Amy Webb

We went there and had a very negative experience. The bartender was very rude after I told him we didn’t order what he gave us. He wouldn’t serve me a drink either. I will never go back here. They are much too concerned with making $ than making customers happy.

Amanda Sorg

Great place for food and drinks. Also a playground for the kids. You can also dock your boat here

James Newman

Great local stop. Fresh poke and tacos were great. Nice atmosphere on the bay. Service was excellent. Would come back

Morgan McMahon

I eat here every time I go to ocean city. The food is delicious and always a friend staff. It's a very cool concept with eating on the bay.

Sari Kress

Fish Tales is a must while in Ocean City! If you're looking for a dining experience on the water this is the place for you. I highly recommend dining during Happy Hour. Grab a Orange Crush and order Clam Strips off the Teasers menu. They are flash fried and amazing! The kids have an awesome playground to play on while you eat. Have a great time! Don't forget to try the Adult Hammocks!

Stephanie DeLillo

Love the atmosphere here. Food is good too. Drinks are strong. One of my favorite bayside locations

Gregg Olah

Great place. Food good. Beth bestest server there is. My favorite stop in OC.

Claire Jaworski

Rhoda was our server! She was on top of things. Our food came out quickly and our waters were always full. Joyful atmosphere. A good time was had by all.

I'm not even sure what this place is?
