“Good Food Average Service”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We ate here twice during our stay. The food was good but the service was only average. Maybe just a bad night as it was on a weekend and busy. I would go back.

“Best Seafood”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Order the crab balls for bites of deliciousness. Always fantastic seafood, and the view of the gulf and Pleasure Pier can't be beat!

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

Fish Tales is worth a visit. We had a very friendly waiter, good service and excellent food. Happy hour is from 3 to 7pm, with $5 dishes and even lower priced drinks.
The salt and pepper shrimp with Jamaican sauce - excellent so where the Greek salad and the blackened gulf fish.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Thought it looked a little beat up when we walked in. Should have left when my bread / appetizer plate had a chunk of food stuck to it and my wife's white cloth napkin had a big red stain on it. Never really got past that.
Service was very good. The place was almost empty.
Food was OK but not presented as I expected for a lunch that cost almost $25 per person for sandwiches, a shared appetizer and soft drinks.

“Overpriced and very bad service”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

We stopped in here on a Saturday night before our cruise. I used my Landry priority seating card and got right inside to sit down. That is where the goodness stopped. We were ignored for about 15 minutes before I flagged someone down to find out who our waiter was. She simply pointed to a guy across the room. He finally came over to take our drink order. We said we were ready to order but of course he wasn't prepared to take food orders yet, only drinks. Once we finally received our food about an hour after we sat down it was only warm and lacked flavor. The wife and I both had fish. No one ever offered an apology and we were rarely even checked on. I wouldn't go back, there must be better seafood in Galveston.
