We were lucky to go on a Friday night when it was not busy so, we went up on the top and ate with an ocean view! It was a pleasant night, not too hot, just a wee bit windy - thank goodness for ponytail holders in my purse! My husband and I ordered raw oysters, that were ok. They... More

The food was delicious, but for the same money in town, at Pappas, you certainly won't leave hungry. It's located right across the street from the "Pleasure Pier" which is a "Landry's" restaurant chain venture. The waitstaff was attentive. and the decor was woody and nautical. The thing that attracted me to the place, was that the wind was proudly... More

Fish Tales is one of the restaurants that we return to when we visit Galveston because of the pleasant atmosphere and they have a couple of dishes on their menu that we like. They have an appetizer called "Shrimp Kisses" which is shrimp stuffed with pepper jack cheese, wrapped in bacon, and broiled. These are very tasty! They also have... More

This was my first time here, and I was not disappointed. It's got a nautical/fisherman's decor which I dig, and a happy hour which I dig even more! The food was also good, and the wait staff quite friendly. The deck is three stories above the seawall and the owners acknowledge visitor's desire to sit outside by the size of... More

Ok so this place has an awesome patio overlooking the Pleasure Pier and the beach. So A+ for that. We ordered sweet tea which was yummy and to start oysters on the half shell which were the absolute worst oysters I've ever tasted in my entire life but Texas had an unseasonably cold winter so we will let that slide....

This is a fun place right across the street from the Pleasure Pier. Staff make you feel very welcome and are very friendly! Food was very good and very generous portions. Catfish platter could have fed five people! All very yummy.

Fish Tales, located on the sea wall, was a quick stop for a cold drink and snacks. We ordered kid's meals for the little ones and found the food was delivered quickly and very tasty. The fish strips were wonderful - very fresh. The grilled cheese featured a really good bread. Blue Bell ice cream bar on the way out... More

Another great Landry's restaurant right across from the Pleasure Pier. Parking was not a problem, very large premium paid lot right next door, and the ticket will be validated for diners at Bubba Gump or Fish Tales, ask your server for details. We had the dozen fried shrimp with french fries and coleslaw, to drink we had a strawberry milkshake.... More

The Tilapia and Crab Stuffed Poblano was a great taste treat. I loved it and recommend it. My dinner partner loved her Great Big Tuna salad, and gave me a bite, which was delicious. Plenty of parking and no wait on a weekend night.
