I had doubts, but a local kept talking about how good their Johnny Rambler sandwich was. It was the best fish sandwich I have ever had ( blackened). My husband had a Mahdi sandwich that he said was excellent. We will return in March 2017.

I have had many great lunches at fish tales. The raspberry sweet tea is my favorite beverage there. I would recommend them for lunch any time!

We like this place. We ordered our meals for take out. The restaurant is not tiny but not large either. There is also a market selling fresh fish, some baked goods, cheeses and meats. Two of us got the Yellow Fin Tuna. It came with a nice mild wasabi sauce on the side. I ordered mine medium rare and it... More

This is a gem of a restaurant. They constantly update their menu. They focus on fish and German food. They also have a area where they sell seafood steaks, sausages and bread to take home and prepare. Fish Tales has the best smoked fish on the planet. My family were commercial fishermen across Chicago, Wisconsin and Michigan, so I have... More
