It's the best! It's my must have whenever I'm in OC. One of the better places for families, they have a large playground facility.

Don't wait to late to eat... if you do you will be waiting! We waited in the bar area so we made the most of our time. Prices are ok.

Very cool venue and set-up on the OC bayside, with service both under cover or outdoors. The service was efficient and friendly, the draft beer was cold, and the fish tacos were the best I've had around town.

Fish Tales is another go-to spot for us when we visit Ocean City, MD. This past weekend, we stopped in for lunch and then again for drinks while bike riding. It was so windy during lunch and a few of the umbrellas almost flew out...More

"...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!"
