Truly enjoyed Fish Tales on our vacation to Galveston Island. The fish and chips are amazing and the portion was more than enough. Located directly across form Paradise Pier you can find yourself relaxing on the deck while listening to the sound of laughter from the pier. Wonderful family atmosphere. Word of caution: if you dine outside be ready to... More

We have eaten here before on trips to Galveston for our cruises, so figured the kids would enjoy it too. Frankly, we were disappointed in 4/5ths of meals and 100% of the service. The amount of food was not as advertised on the menu, but the quality was okay. Only one of the dishes we ordered came out as expected... More

The food was very good and the service was great. The only thing was our waiter did not validate our parking ticket and ended up paying $10 for parking.

I'm one to rave about great service because even with the food being mediocre at best, fantastic service will keep you coming back. My boyfriend and I went to galveston last week for a couple of days and this was our first meal while there. We initially were going to go to Bubba Gump across the street but decided last... More

We ate lunch here our first day in Galveston. It took a very long time to get our food and it's very overpriced! Food was not great either. I would suggest eating somewhere else!

The food was okay, not spectacular. It was a bit pricy and we had to pay $10 to park for 1 hour. The service was quick and the staff was nice.

The food was incredible. Only problem was half our table was served ten minutes before the rest. We were apologized to and offered free dessert, turned out to be one dessert for whole family. Food was definitely worth the trouble and price.

It has been at least 12 years since I have eaten at Fish Tales. I wanted to go because I remember it being so good. Today, the restaurant did not disappoint. It is a seafood restaurant on the seawall, and with that being said, I thought the prices were right in line, if not better, than other seafood restaurants in... More
