Fish Tales is a must whenever we go to Galveston. Had an early dinner with a friend and we had the pleasure of having Ross as our server. A true asset! Attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Great job!!

The service was very good when we dined at lunch, but there was nothing exceptional about the food. Pretty standard shrimp PO boy and fish tacos. They were generous with their servings

Employees were very nice and accommodating. The wait was 1 1/2 hours and the food was just ok. Seemed expensive...but I guess it's right on the beach so that was nice.

Was in Galveston for a convention and decided to try Fish Tales for drinks/snacks. The service was a little slower than I am used to (it wasn't that busy) but the drinks/food were fine. I have to give it a 4 only because of the...More
