The food and ambiance are awesome here. The only complaint would be that it took 20 minutes for us to see a server. But it was such a nice night, we didn't mind too much. The picture was the view from our seat.

I've never reviewed this spot but have been going for the ambience for almost 20 years. Drinks have gotten better (excellent crushes and bloody marys), the food is going in the other direction. Left disappointed with 3 out of 4 plates: the Walking Taco, the...More

Yes. I know we sat at a regular table. Although they are kind of tall tables.

"...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!"
