We like going to Fish Tales in conjunction with a visit to the Pleasure Pier. The food is good, the staff is attentive, the place is fun, but the wait can be long and they don't take reservations. So here's our favorite trick. Moms, Dads and Kids go to Pleasure Pier. Dads and Kids get all day all-ride pass. Moms... More

Tonight we ate here and it was another winner. I can't remember what it was called but it was the chef special. I have to say it was absolutely delicious. The coconut shrimp was the best I have ever eaten. All the employees were extremely nice. We will mostly definitely be going back.

The restaurant wasn't crowded, upstairs/outside, the seawall location is great but the service was a mess. Frazier the waiter was pre-occupied. It took him awhile to get our drinks. I ordered shrimp with crawfish etouffee over rice but got deep fried shrimp over french fries. When I asked him about it he said, do you want some rice? Husband's meal... More

The food is fantastic, we sat upstairs outside and it was wonderful. They have a cocktail called "Painkiller" it sure came in handy after a not so soft landing from skydiving earlier in the day!

Have eat here for years. Right across from the ocean and Pleasure Pier. They have a good selection of food and good service. Again if you come in the summer time, expect all food places to be crowded. Waitress was very nice.

The waitresses are friendly, the location is great and the view is one of a kind. The food on the other hand has much to be desired. The plates themselves come with plenty of food but they lack taste no salt, seasoning no flavor at all. That was consistent for my wife's, son, and my plate, three strikes and they're... More

The restaurant is across from the pleasure pier and has a great view of the beach strand and the gulf. It is a casual place and the upper deck had a great outdoor dining area. Klarissa provided excellent service and she made sure we were aware of the appetizers and menu and offered recommendations. She was very attentive but never... More

The places is noisy and crowded. The waiter was nice. The food was great. We did not have to wait too long. The portions were large and the waiter gave toys to the kids.
