Welcome to Our Seafood Market

Every piece of fish we serve here at Fish Tale Grill comes courtesy of the experienced team here at Merrick Seafood. While our restaurant’s been operating since 2013, Merrick Seafood has been serving restaurants, caterers, and retail customers throughout Southwest Florida since 1991.

We Have Everything You Need for Dinner

Naturally, we offer the local in-season species you know and love. However, we also bring in northern favorites such as cod, haddock, and halibut, as well as fish from international waters. That means you can try something caught off the coast of Scotland as easily as you can enjoy a fish reeled in near Bokeelia.

Our market also sells fresh fish topped with a variety of gourmet marinades or crusts, as well as a full assortment of prepared items that you can pop into the oven when you get home. Then there are the numerous fresh platters that you can order when you need to serve a hungry crowd.

We invite you to stop into our fresh seafood market and speak with one of our sales associates. We’re always happy to help, whether it’s suggesting a fish to serve or offering preparation and cooking advice. We’re located in downtown Cape Coral, an easy drive from Fort Myers, North Fort Myers, and the entire Cape.

Bought fresh shrimp for linguine with Alfredo that was delicious. Also bought crab claws that we warmed up and drizzled with garlic butter. Super good!

Had the trio for lunch & it was amazing! Scallops, crab fritters & salmon! Only the 2nd time I’ve been there but I went with a regular who said he’s never had a bad trio! Service was great. Can’t wait to go back on my next visit!!

We had a wonderful time. A friend of ours was visiting. We had apps and the coconut shrimp was delicious. Also, the tuna was wonderful and fresh. The main meals were so good. I had lobster ravioli and my partner had a seafood mix, simply fabulous. Our visiting friend had salmon piccata. Damn good. Our server Katie was so friendly and helpful she was there at just the right time. We had a marvelous time.

One of the oldest Seafood Markets in SW Florida (30+ yrs). Excellent choice of fresh fish and Seafood. Even some prepared, ready to cook dishes. Yet my favorite is the attached Restaurant Fish Tale Grill, with its great selection of deliciously prepared dishes. Small and cozy. Always a treat.
