No stars, is that an option? The bored girls at the hostess station informed us it would be a 30 minute wait despite tables visibly empty all around. We asked if there would be another option, referenced the bar and said it would be the same as the restaurant. We found the cleanest table we could (a challenge) only to... More

Great place to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. Service was good and we were very pleased with the quality of the food. I had the seafood gumbo and it was delicious. My wife's fried shrimp had a light batter and was very tasty. I would return.

Touristy and fun atmosphere but average food for the price. No bargain here but it is nice to eat by the water and watch the people passing by. Get a table by the window.

Stopped in for an appetizer and drinks and sat out on the upper deck. Great atmosphere overlooking the pleasure pier and the gulf.

Better seafood on the island 🌴. But tourist love that it's across the street from pleasure pier. Can be a fun day for tourist.

I have been here several times, and there is always a wait. This visit we arrived later, about 2:30pm and was told the wait was 35 minutes or so. We walked over to the bar for an adult beverage, and found a few empty tables. We were able to sit and order our lunch, so we averted the wait. I... More

We ate at Fish Tales before leaving on a cruise out of Galveston. The clam chowder was delicious and shrimp cocktail had 10 large shrimp! The hot rolls and cinnamon butter rounded out the meal with good cocktails and cheerful service. We will be back!

Our food was very good and our wait staff (Justin) was top notch. He was very attentive. It was our first visit there and will definitely go there again next time in Galveston.
