After that came a brief seven-year retirement, which gives Dean a laugh. “I didn’t like being retired and staying home all day! I’d much rather be out talking to people and doing something I love.” Dean remembers his mother, Louise, always snapping beans in the cafeteria and talking to her many friends and regular customers. “We definitely learned from the best,” he says fondly.
Dean, Dana, and son Chris opened FishTales in 2013 with one main focus: quality. Manager Chris says it’s what he’s most proud of at FishTales. They serve the freshest made-to-order seafood, most of it straight from the Gulf. Customers have been saying it’s the best seafood around. “We didn’t want to be the biggest; we want to be the best,” says Dean. The menu includes fried catfish, raw oysters, fish tacos, seafood platters, and much more. FishTales is a must-try for a seafood lover. For the land lovers, they also offer prime and fresh hamburger steaks as well as some chicken dishes.
Chris laughs as he remembers being a child growing up in the restaurant industry. “I helped, played a lot of the quiet game, and got in the way a lot. I’m so glad the family still works so well together. There’s nothing I’d rather be doing.”
