I typically avoid larger, themed restaurants but this one surprised me. My wife"s red fish picatta was amazingly fresh and savory. My snapper was similarly fresh but not as memorable. With prices in line with other fresh seafood restaurants, this is a viable option in the Pleasure Pier area.

The food is very, very average. I would say on par with a Landry's, so nothing to write home about. I also felt it a bit overpriced. For two adults and 2 kids it was over $70 and we only had soft drinks. The restaurant has a some good character, great service and a good view of the beach and Pleasure Pier. Too bad the food detracts from the atmosphere. One plus is that they do offer a $10 voucher toward parking.

We decided to take our order back to the hotel. Shrimp kisses may have been better fresh out of kitchen, but they weren't bad. We were disappointed there didn't seem to be jalapeno inside and they could have used the kick. Gumbo was bland, poorly seasoned and tasteless. The cobb salad was drenched in dressing and the lettuce wilted, but the toppings were good. I ate the toppings and left the rest. The bar looks fun and the view is great, so might go back for cocktails.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Fish Tales. It is directly across from the pier with the amuzement park where there is never a dull moment. My husband enjoyed his seafood and since I don't care for it, I got the pulled pork...absolutely delicious! We will be going back.
