We ate dinner at Fish Tales. My husband really enjoyed the New Orleans dish. It was a little spicy, but very good. I had grilled fish and shrimp with pineapple salsa. The salsa was especially good. We were seated close to the kitchen, so it was a little chaotic.

Came here for a late lunch mid-week in OCT so really not crowded at all. Pleasant staff, quick service. Good view of Galveston beach, for what that is worth (not exactly a pretty beach). Right by the pier (heavy duty commercialism/tourism). Food was good, not great. Had the broiled stuffed shrimp. Must try the Shrimp Kisses. Unique flavor with bacon... More

Nothing distinctive here. The view is one that can be had at any of several seawall restaurants. But, it's good enough!

The best seafood on the seawall boulevard, it was a very busy Saturday night so had to wait a little to get seated and also to get our food, but it was worth the wait. the blackened catfish ettouffee was so flavoursome and the fried seafood platter would feed 2 people easily. Finished off with blue bell icecream. Simply delicious.

I really didn't know what to expect when we went to this place last week. My initial thought was primarily a bar scene with an eatery thrown in. Turns out this was an excellent dining experience set inside a bar. Our food was fantastic. We did sit for a very long time waiting for service though, yes they were busy... More

The place was nice. We sat outside on the balcony. Food and drinks were good and staff was helpful. Prices in my opinion were kinda high.

The staff and food made this visit excellent. The prices weren't so great, but average for the chain. Sit inside or outside, but beware of birds scavenging for unattended food, or food droppings. A great place to eat overall, and highly recommended to try at least once.
