Fishtales Restaurant & Nightclub
Been here twice and am very satisfied with the service, taste and quality of the food. Had the same waiter twice whom is just awesome!!! The fish dishes here are pretty good and more importantly, it seems fresh fish is definitely used unlike restaurants that use previously frozen fish. The crowd is a mature older crowd. The noise level is very loud, but it is a restaurant/nightclub...so don’t go here if you are expecting a quiet evening. It is also a small dinning room with the bar and stage right within arms reach of your table...we will be back occasionally for the food, service, and the live music.
Fun night. Don’t miss it
The band was so much fun . I enjoyed dancing .
Our waiter was great . The food was good . Friendly fun atmosphere.
You guys have the greatest staff
they work as a team never leave you hanging very attentive and professional with big smiles thank Scott and Kathy you guys are awesome
If you like live music and dancing, this is a very fun place, and the food is better than you might think for a nightclub. Dont hesitate to order any snapper dinner. Its always excellent.
The Kitchen Killa Summer Brunch series was phenomenal.
Enjoyed the food from the guest chef!
It was quite the experience. Serenade and all. Adrian is the best and Mr Bombastic topped it off.
Love the club/restaurant. We had their Dolphin fingers. excellent! Beer was BOGO, which you can not beat. Very intimate club, cozy seats and great music.
Fishtales is one of my favorite go to places for good food, live music and a fun evening. The food is excellent and the prices are reasonable. Kathy and Scott are usually there and make you feel welcome.
This restaurant seemed like a hotspot for the elderly. We sat inside after a while because there was no hostess to seat us immediately. It seemed understaffed and therefore the service suffered. The music was loud and we had to scream to be heard across the table. The drinks were not good. So I would not recommend this place for cocktails. The food was decent.
It was my friend's birthday, and Fishtales made it one to remember. Our server Claudia was amazing and made us feel very welcome. The evening started off with some quiet music, but after 9, the place was jumping with the music of a live band. The lead singer of Radio Addiction gave a lively performance, reaching out to include the audience. A fun club with the feel of a local bar where everybody knows everyone.
The restaurant was great. The booth was comfy and loved the pillows. The dance floor was an added benefit as we primarily went for the live music event.
We booked late for a party of 21 people for my daughter’s birthday. We were visiting from New Jersey and didn’t know the area well. We were pleasantly surprised when we were able to get a table. The manager Scott even called to discuss. He made her a special birthday dessert with sparklers. Just perfect!!! Everyone got different types of food from chicken fingers (for kids) to steak to fish tacos to pasta dishes and not one person could stop raving about how great the food was. We went there on a Wednesday and the band was so fantastic too! Thanks everyone at Fishtales for a great night!!!
Amazing food, amazing waitress at our table outside and amazing band like everytime we go there!
Love this place ! The food is very good and the entertainment is outstanding.
The happy hour is from 5-8 and there is entertainment every night.
It's an older crowd at this time and everyone has a great time dancing and mingling.
Just a very good time!
Never went before but would surely come back. Monday night it seems there are shows. The entertainer was really good. Food was fine not great but the value was great in that the food was ok and the entertainment lot's of fun.
We had a blast..music was outstanding!! Food was delicious. They could use some additional waiters or waitresses. Service was not up to par. Other than that we had a wonderful time. Would go again!
Great vibe! Good food & service & great entertainment !
This restaurant was recommended but the very inattentive server ruined my experience.For happy hour with 2 for one drinks and slightly reduced appetizer mussels were overly spicy and calamari was crispy. I had been ask for water refills in tiny cups at the bar. The best thing about the experience was the outstanding live music and the funky decor on A mermaid and fish theme.Great potential ruined by inattentive server
Went to the restaurant with my husband and 2 kids. Service was very good. Loud music on stage right next to our table. Food was not great. My son’s tempura mahi and fish and chips looked identical and my lobster ravioli was swimming in so much cream sauce that I had to send it back.
We had a special birthday celebration, and we had a great time. Food was very good, service was friendly and accommodating, and entertainment was terrific.
I took an out of town family member to Fishtale and had an AWESOME time!!! Great place to go!!!
Valentine’s Day had a great evening they gave us complementary Champagne and roses for women food was excellent band incredible can’t wait to go back again
We went to see Roy Michaels who gave a wonderful show. We had 8 in our group and were able to grt a great table.
Fun night with great service staff too!
We will be back!!
There is no question that their chef does an excellent job with the food. We have the seafood bucket with a coconut curry sauce as an appetizer and it was basically one of the best appetizers I have had. Our main courses were delicious and of course Seafood since we were in Fort Lauderdale. Each was well-prepared and well presented.
The service was very unusual and not impressive, not customer friendly and no sense of trying to make our experience as good as possible. The foid does compensated well for the lack of engaging service.
Birthday celebration...GREAT BAND!! Danced, laughed, drank, ate...had a BLAST!!! Superb service...FUN!!!
(DON"T get the calamari) Wonderful time!
I go here to dance to the live music they have, but the food is very good and reasonably priced. My favorite there is the fresh snapper which is often a special on the menu.
Service is very good. The staff makes it clear they appreciate the customers. Get there around 8:00 and by the time you are done, the band comes on around 9:30.
Save your time and money and avoid this place. Attended on a Sunday night, 2 hours after being seated still did not have dinner entree. Took 45 mins to get appetizer of 6 coconut crusted shrimp for $17. When dinner finally came out, only entree came for party of 2. Server described it as a ‘kitchen snafu’. Everyone around us seated outside was agitated as well. I would up ordering Dominos pizza from a nearby store and having delivered! The owner was there most of the night and never once came over to the table (any table) to apologize. Instead he seemed to enjoy drinking at the outside bar while the staff took the brunt of the complete mismanagement. There are many choices to eat in Fort Lauderdale. Hopefully this place will close soon from the complete mismanagement.
We arrived @ 6:45 pm - 30 minutes early. My complaint is that no one was the there to greet us. A group came in past us and were seated immediately. We were left waiting never even acknowledged. I sat with my back to the bar while my husband waited for someone to greet us for seating. Which we still continued to wait. Bartender asked what can I get you. I turned and politely said no thank you, we are waiting to be seated and she turned away. We waited and still no one. I finally got fed up and asked the waitress to inform the manager that we left because no one was available to greet us for seating.
Ps the place was outdated. Although service and food always out-ways how a place looks.
The managers and wait staff were awesome and the food was wonderful! A great live oldies show going on and we all really had a good time! Probably good for groups of not more than 10 if you all need to be seated at the same table but we had 20 and had lots of fun!!!
I had a wonderful dinner. Food was seasoned very well. Owner very friendly. Invited us back. Ed
Very good service! Food was mediocre at best.
Great place...ALWAYS enjoy it. Thank for making my bday special...wish I remembered my hostess, she was funny, attentive amazing.!
This is the first time i was there. Went only because Albert Castiglia was performing there.
The service and food was great. I live in Palm Beach county so it was a bit of a drive. I will consider Fishtails again.
We were seated and waited almost 15 min before getting up and leaving! We chose Fishtales to celebrate a friend’s birthday but no one greeted us or offered us drinks/menus! Very disappointing! Would have given 0’s but not an option!
Excellent tuna tartare, good mahi-mahi Reuben sandwich. Live music and a lively crowd
Billy Bones, live Jazz musician, made the whole place come alive! Not sure without the live music that I'd go, but will definitely be back when Billy is there...heard he may be a regular Sunday afternoons!
