Stopped in for an appetizer and drinks and sat out on the upper deck. Great atmosphere overlooking the pleasure pier and the gulf.

I have been here several times, and there is always a wait. This visit we arrived later, about 2:30pm and was told the wait was 35 minutes or so. We walked over to the bar for an adult beverage, and found a few empty tables. We were able to sit and order our lunch, so we averted the wait. I... More

We ate at Fish Tales before leaving on a cruise out of Galveston. The clam chowder was delicious and shrimp cocktail had 10 large shrimp! The hot rolls and cinnamon butter rounded out the meal with good cocktails and cheerful service. We will be back!

Our food was very good and our wait staff (Justin) was top notch. He was very attentive. It was our first visit there and will definitely go there again next time in Galveston.

We stop at this restaurant each time we are in Galveston. Its not the greatest food but its a fun and convenient place to eat. The prices are a bit high during off season. The wait staff are usually always nice and very helpful.

We ate at Fish Tales many times while in Galveston for a month. Everytime the food was fantastic and the service great. We would not hesitate to go back next time we are in the area. The Shrimp Kisses are the BEST!

Right across the street from Pleasure Pier. Nice restaurant, clean, and all kinds of great food. Awesome views. 2 story. Free parking when you eat here. After you grub down, you can walk anywhere. Center of Seawall. We will be back.

I had crab cakes, my wife had a shrimp salad, both were excellent. But the best compliment I can give this great restaurant located right across from the seawall is that it's staff was so helpful and accommodating. We sat on the front outside dining area and had a view without peer but with very much of the pier.

Thank MLT1919
