“Good service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

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 and service that Bubba Gumps. They had very similar prices. But my families pick is Fish Tales!

“A great place for the family, friends, or just the 2 of you.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

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 good, as was the coconut shrimp, and fried oysters. Everyone was very pleased with the food and service.

“nice atmosphere and good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

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 outside, and the tables all have nice views of the gulf.

“Great Location and Harley our Food Attendant was Super!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

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!

“Great views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

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 warm and not very well cooked. We will try it again, hopefully it was just a bad night. But it is a great view on a nice night.
