Fish Tales cooks every meal to order and while waiting for your food you can always be kept busy checking out the waterfront activities, the wall and ceiling decorations or any of the TV's focused on sports or news.
The restaurant is located on a riverbank adjacent to a marina so there seems to always be some activities going on.
Much like a Margaritaville, Fish Tales is cozy and casual, and both looks and feels like a locals hang-out....which it is. You can also dine indoors or outdoors and enjoy a full bar and specials each day.
Favorite Dish: ANYTHING seafood as it will be fresh and cooked to order.
You must try the hush puppies with any of your meal. They are awesome.
I loved the shrimp basket the past two times I have eaten here.

They charged $1/foot and $2.50 for electric. Their floating docks are wooden on blue barrels, so you have to walk carefully as they bounce around a bit. When you stop on it, it gives under your weight. The bigger pieces just give a little, but the smaller connector ones dip down a lot. It is like walking on a jungle suspension bridge. Since their pay phone wasn't too reliable, he let me use his only phone line to download e-mail. No cable at the boat, and we could get reception on only two good channels with the antenna. There were several boats anchored up from the marina. The anchorage looked as protected as anything in this flat country ever is. I have no pictures of this area because there's nothing to take a picture of.
Equipment: The chart segment has a mark on it for an anchorage, but the marina (and another anchorage) is farther up the creek. On this chart the marina is on the left right next to the word Kilkenny.

There are so few marinas between Thunderbolt and Jekyll Island that a slow sailboat like we are has to anchor.
There is an anchorage on Kilkenny Creek up past the marina but you can also anchor closer to the ICW.
Equipment: Kilkenny Creek at marker #107 is to the right. Favour the right side when entering and anchor in 15 feet . The bottom is mud and good holding.
We customarily anchor in the Wahoo River, and once we anchored north of little St. Simon Island.

Favorite thing: Richmond Hill is a suburb of Savannah - about 20 miles away.
According to the history books, a few miles north of here where the US 17 bridge crosses the Ogeechee River was the site of a defeat of the British during the Revolution. A Colonial colonel and 5 other men used widely spaced watch fires and misleading calls to imaginary sentinels to convince the British force that they outnumbered the 5 ships and 130 men which intended to capture Savannah. Riding into the British camp alone the next morning, the American leader demanded the unconditional surrender, and they did so.
Fondest memory: Another claim to fame for Richmond is that Clara Ford (Henry Ford's wife) built a her dream home here in 1925 on the site of Richmond Plantation which was burned in Sherman's March to the Sea during the Civil War.
