Solid fish fry, lots of seafood choices. Varied menu. Was a bit noisy, but it was a Friday night and super busy. The wait wasn't too long to be seated, however. Looked like locals frequent the place as our waitress seemed to know many!

We have traveled the world, and been fortunate enough to dine at wonderful places, both far and near, from local establishments, to Europe, through the Pacific Rim, to the Middle East and Africa. Our experience this evening at Fish Tales (31 March 2017) was the worst we have ever been treated. After an hour plus wait, we were shown our... More

Great drinks and we really liked the boasted chicken. We were there on a Sunday evening, so no wait to be seated. Very clean and great service.

Dinner Friday night was very busy. Our group of 4 had reservations and only had to wait a couple minutes for our table. The lake perch was good and a large portion. Tables are very close together and the noise level is pretty high. Has something of a sports bar attitude but many families with kids were there.

Not too many folks yet but we decided to have a drink at the bar first. Lot of great local talk. The owner was behind the bar that night and is a... More

We went for fish on a Friday. Cassie, our waitress was exceptional and the food was very good. We ordered an appetizer (lamb sliders with goat cheese) which turned out to be fantastic! It is a very loud restaurant but if you can get past that, you can get an excellent meal.

We have always enjoyed the dinner menu here serving a nice variety of steak, seafood and pasta. But on this visit we opted to go with there sandwich menu and I have to say we were delighted with our choices. I ordered the Prime Rib & French Dip sandwich with fries. The prime rib was as tender and as flavorful... More

Excellent food, service and environment!! Fantastic and beautiful location and enchanting log cabin. Not expecting to find such delicious fish and seafood around this area but such a pleasant surprise. Next time we meet with friends in this area will definitely be back.
