When on the coast you have to eat seafood, Saturday afternoon along the seawall is a busy time but Fish Tales got us in on a great table on the balcony. The meals were amazing, great taste, hot, not too big and not too small. Our waitress was a bit slow getting started but they were truly slammed, once we... More

Great customer service. Wendy was one of the highlights of the day we spent in Galveston. What a great way to end the day. She was more than helpful, courteous, kind, and most of all attentive. Loved having met her.

It was great to pop in for a few drinks whole the rain passed. I was travelling on my own and the bartender took the time to make me feel welcome and provide information on the local area. I look forward to my next visit.

It was a very nice location being right across from Pleasure Pier. The shrimp was outstanding but the steak was just OK. Service was good. Atmosphere was enjoyable. It's a good place to eat with scenic view.

This was our first time eating here... and we almost passed on going. But we decided to try it and it was a very pleasant experience. The resturant is set up where you can eat outside or inside of the resturant. We selected outside due to the weather was absolutely beautiful and it was a great choice. Everyone was very... More

We really enjoyed Fish Tales. They had some of the largest oysters on the half shell that I've ever had! We shared several of the appetizers for our meal and they were all very good. My 7 and 12 year-olds loved the shrimp kisses, and the Cold Trio was very good and refreshing too.
