Really enjoyed the atmosphere and ambiance of this place. Best of all, they had fresh wahoo and it was perfectly grilled so moist and tasty. Nice stop on a roadtrip and glad we drove the extra time instead of eating at the normal places .

Fish Tales is a great place to grab great seafood. Nestled on the bank of the river, it serves fresh seafood just the way you like it. Broiled, fried and fresh is on the menu!
