Great location on the lake with a very cool atmosphere. Perfect lakeside bar with fresh seafood options that are priced just right. Huge play area for the kids with plenty of seating inside, outside, or on the deck. Drinks are poured with perfection and plenty of options for everyone. Tons of parking if you come by car and plenty of ... read more

Giving this restaurant a five stars, primarily because of its location! It truly feels like you've been transported to Florida on a vacation with stunning views of the water, a nice sand play area for kids, and seafood of all kinds. The food itself was not the best I've had, but was still find overall. The service was also great, des ... read more

Been a while, step daughter and I went here for a lunch. It had been a while since I had been here. Not many folks in here. I had the ahi tuna, daughter had the combo fried oysters and grouper fingers. Everything was very delicious and we enjoyed the meal. The sides were very good. Everything was very fresh tasting.

This was our first time and we will go here again! The food was even better than expected and what a nice change with the service!

This place is great! Delicious food, good service, and a nice view of the lake. My husband and I ate here on a road trip, and what a lucky find. The tiki beach vibe is nice and relaxing. The drink selection is massive. There is a ton of parking. We started with the Watermelon lemonade and the Pina colada. I think the Pina colada was ... read more

Good food
Great seafood and service the view is incredible and very welcoming the appetizers were the best the only negative is long flight of stairs up to restaurant may not be good spot for disabled or elderly.

The best food and environment around! Great for kids and the family, and by far the best Texas Margaritas you can find!

Beautiful little spot on Lake Lanier. We went there after sunset so couldn’t really enjoy outdoor patio and lake view. But the food was unexpectedly really good. Loved their Mini Key Lime Pie, must try if you are into desserts! The servers are very friendly. They had Trivia Tuesday when we went in, had some fun while having dinner.

Fish Tails is by far our favorite resturant on Lake Lanier! Year after year the food, service and atmosphere is among the best on the lake. Our server ZACH is a delight! He is totally focused on customer service and making our dining experience the best! There is only ONE BIG PROBLEM……We NEED FISH TAILS TO STAY OPEN YEAR ROUND!!!
