I’ve been here often. Love the vibe and great live music. Also really enjoy the block party they are doing on sundays! Just saw two really good bands there this past Sunday, a Clapton tribute band and a Heart Tribute - both bands were really excellent and it was great to see 2 groups that night... they even had another band later inside the bar. We really appreciate the quality live music Fishtales brings. Food is good, place is clean. Thumbs up!!
LOVE IT! Best in Fort Lauderdale! Beautful setting on the intracoastal. Friendly staff and pretty easy to get in without reservations.
Family owned business, personalized attention from Mrs. Gilbert herself. Very clean... They have the most delicious hamburgers...check out the menu. I travel here from Miami, just to eat here. Excellent place!
My husband threw up so bad a couple of hours after having lunch. The meat has a foul smell and mashed potato is cold.
This is a gem of a restaurant. We ate alfresco and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. My entree was beautifully prepared. The chef took time to stop by our table. Waitresses were so nice. Very good experience. I recommend trying the Village Cafe.
I have always enjoyed dining at J Marks. They have a fairly diverse menu; Pasta dishes, Asian inspired entrees, steaks and salads. It's clean. The decor is contemporary and the clientele seems to be down to Earth and enjoying the experience.
We have been here maybe 30 times. Easy valet parking right at the door, great food. Attentive wait staff. Cool signature drinks if you ask your bartender and outside there is a great patio off the bar with a fire pit. Five stars all around.
Great restaurant overall. Sometimes the food is slightly under five stars but 9 out of 10 times we love the experience and the pallet.
Overall the place is very cool to sit in, but sometimes the servers seem snooty. We enjoy the food and the cocktails, sometimes it gets a bit too crowded with singles looking to mingle and the bar is a bit packed for a couple to enjoy. I really do like their lettuce wedge.
Worst meal I've had at any restaurant in a long time! I ordered the country fried steak with sausage gravy. The "steak" was a piece of pressed, formed meat of some type. I expected something better for $12. The little bit of gravy wasn't as tasty as canned from a restaurant supply store and not as good as I've had in a school cafeteria. The biscuit which was $2.50 extra was split, heavy, and extremely dry. The grits as the side dish were good. When I spoke with the manager, she said she'd never had a complaint about my dish in 14 years and was obviously not happy that I compared it to an inexpensive frozen dinner. However, it was obvious to all who saw my plate that it was not a real country fried steak!!! The manager did take off the biscuit and part of the meal price from my tab. My friend had the Philly Cheese Steak which was ok but fries that were too salty to eat, and she adds salt to everything!!! Even though my friend had been there twice before, I will not return!!
