Fish Tail Willy's is an independent, largely seafood restaurant. They have a suave logo, a nice outdoor deck, a spiral-bound menu reminiscent of the Cheesecake Factory or another successful chain. In fact, it seems like the first of a chain. In all its finned finery, Fish Tail Willy's is a fun summer outpost for frozen Blue Hawaiians and Bushwackers, its servers chummy and versed in the offerings. Still, the kitchen needs to focus on consistency and attention to detail before Willy is going to swim with the big fishes.
Special note for parents: Fish Tail Willy's has more than 300 replica fish tails on its walls. The restaurant offers prizes for people who can name the most. And for those with four-legged "kids," Willy's has two pet-friendly decks.
