Welcome to Fish Tale Grill

Merrick Seafood has been delivering fresh local seafood – as well as the finest global options – since 1991. Over the years, we’ve earned a well-deserved reputation for providing the highest-quality seafood to restaurants throughout Southwest Florida and points beyond. In 2013, we decided to open Fish Tale Grill, the best seafood restaurant in Cape Coral. We serve freshly caught fish and are located in the heart of downtown. Since opening, we’ve been named the top seafood restaurant on the Cape for numerous years in a row.

Fishtale Grill never disappoints! My favorite thing on the menu is the Lobster BLT Melt. It is SO good! Their outdoor seating space is wonderful as well! I highly recommend!

It is only seldom that I am compelled to add a review. Everything was so good I was about moved to tears.  Oysters were amazing. Lobster sublime. Service by David was considerate, fast and gracious.  Will definitely recommend it to everyone that has a chance to be in the area.

This was the first time we came out to the Cape for dinner at the Fishtale Grill, but it certainly won’t be the last!  Hayley provided ah-mazing service, and the food was divine!  My honey had the Seafood Paella, and I devoured the Lobster and Crab Stuffed Shrimp.  Of course, we had salty Blue Point Oysters to start.  This was a meal worthy of 10 stars!  Hayley also told us about the oyster specials available on Saturdays and Sundays for brunch (Gulf oysters are $1.00 each).  We will be back again soon!
