Wild Tale is a fairly new seafood restaurant founded by co-owners John Crook and Erik Heck. In recent years, they’ve made a name with their crowd-pleasing Flying Pig restaurants. The whole concept of this place is California-fresh, easily affordable, simple seafood restaurant.
The dining room is spacious with some wood trim to make it feel rustic and squeezed in a few more tables on the bare-bones patio. The color scheme is beige, cream and hunter green. Sort of feels like a fishing lodge.
There is nothing revelatory about the menu – and that’s a good thing. It’s comfort seafood, done well for the most part. The vast majority of the seafood is Ocean Wise-friendly. Fortunately for the locals, the daily catch isn’t limited to the Pacific Northwest.
