Fish Tales is a great place to go for anyone on the mood for seafood. It also was in a great location right across from pleasure pier. We enjoyed the meal and thought the service was great! This place was right across from Bubba Gumps and was very similar to Bubba Gumps. In my opinion this place had better food... More

Our granddaughter was graduating UTMB and 13 of us from around the state gathered in G-town for the big event. I called for reservations (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) so we walked right in past dozens of people waiting. They validate parking for the lot next door. Food was good. Three of our group had the daily special which they said was very... More

We decided to grab a bite to eat after visiting the Pleasure Pier. Mason was our server.He was friendly and polite, he definitely provided us with good service. The food was good and the seafood tasted very fresh. The drinks were cheap which was awesome. We liked the decor, it was interesting to look at. You can sit inside or... More

Nice location right across from the Beach and we could sit upstairs outside; went back a separate time for great ice cream! Love the t shirts as well. Harley was our wait staff and she was so pleasant and service minded!

We were there on a full moon weekend, and requested seating on the patio. It was a very busy Saturday night and even though there was a hour wait, with our select card we were seated within 10 minutes. We've eaten here before and really liked it, however we were very disappointed in the food this time. It was barely... More

If the waitress would have been better probably would have enjoyed the food more. It is beyond me why a waitress wants to argue with a customer. New potatoes were uncooked and raw in the center. Then she said maybe that's the way they prepare them. Geehhzzzzzz you think!!!! Had to get mad at her and demand that she get... More

It was good to sit on the balcony and view the Pleasure Pier, however, their service is poor and prices have inflated. To give you a good idea, I ordered a margarita and by the time it got to our table it was no longer frozen. It's not the same. So sad.

Right across from pleasure pier, the view and the ambiance was fantastic. You can people watch and grab a bite to eat. Prices are high, but I suppose this is the "norm" given its right by a tourist spot. I ordered the fried oysters, it was good. The waiter was super nice and professional. When we initially arrived we were... More

Tried on our recent trip to Galveston. The beer was good and the food I ordered was good. I had some sort of BBQ bacon wrapped shrimp pasta. Oysters were good. My wife and son did not care for their order. $100 dollar bill gone.
