It was my first time at Fish Tales in a long time. We were a group of six and had great service. The coconut shrimp was very tasty and the burgers were huge. We had a great time here after the Mardi Gras parade.

Mediocre almost empty on Thursday night. We should have turned around and walked out. Only enjoyable dish was oysters on the half shell. Very friendly staff. Need to retrain the kitchen though.

Wife wanted to stop because of the catchy name. The prices for the food did not match the area. Overpriced and the soup cost $15 for two cups. Nothing outstanding. Ridiculous for the area. Really disappointed won't be back.

Been here twice (don't plan to return). Big portions of mainly fried foods. The food is average. This is not a terrible place, but with so much fresh, tasty seafood available nearby, this would be low on my list.

I've been really disappointed in the Landry's brand of restaurants and I didn't realize that Fish Tales was part of the chain. We ate there this weekend and it was horrible. It does have a good location and it's nice on the inside but the food was bad. We split a shrimp platter with a variety of shrimp and it... More

Food was very good, and reasonably priced . Great view, we'll return. It's part of the Landry's chain, but it's not like eating at a "duplicate" place in another city. It's a special part of Galveston's dining experiences.

Awesome food. Prices are a little high but the food and atmosphere were worth it. View of the Gulf on the upper deck. Ice cream parlor in the lobby if you are looking for a quick scoop.
