We had the the Manager Brett serve us the "Bayou Trash" grilled Oysters Shrimp, Calamari, and Snapper! Absolutely the best grilled seafood platter on the Island!

I don't like seafood to start off with. The group I was with wanted seafood. The atmosphere was good as was the service. Even though I don't like seafood, I do like fish and chips. I got that and at $17.99, I thought it was too high. Desserts were overpriced as well. The fish and chips were good but seemed... More

Visited on our first night in Galveston during happy hour. It runs Monday-Friday from 3-7pm. Beers are $3.00, frozen drinks $5.00 and most appetizers are $4.00. We had the 6 peel and eat shrimp and it was delicious. We also had the queso it was good, but I've had better. The strawberry daiquiri was excellent. We shared the old fashion... More

We were out driving around on Christmas Day and was delighted to find a restaurant open. Stopped in at Fish Tales, it was very busy, but we got a table after just a short wait. Our server was awesome and he recommended the Shrimp Kisses for an appetizer. He was dead on, they were delish! Our meal was great and... More

Large group of family and friends met on a Saturday for birthday party. Great service and food! The manager also checked on our party a few times to make sure our needs were met.

This is a Landry's chain restaurant. It's not inexpensive. The service is just "okay". The beer selection on tap is also just "okay" (only 3 local beers and only 1 IPA on tap!??). I had blackened red snapper and my meal mate had tuna. Both were good, but not great. Sides were very plain. (Rice pilaf? Blah. ). I don't... More

Stopped here for lunch. Warmly greeted and seated. The restaurant has an interesting décor, and we got a good table overlooking the Gulf and the Galveston Pleasure Pier. We decided to start with a dozen raw oysters, and that's when the disappointment began. They were tiny! At $15+ for a dozen oysters in the heart of oyster season on the... More

Great service, great food and a great price. Our first visit to Galveston and couldn't have picked a better restaurant. We wanted to have a nice night out with our son and this was spot on for our night.
