Should’ve known that a place right across from the pier was going to be mediocre. Food brought out fast Marginal creativity in dishes Way overpriced IMO Don’t do the sirloin steaks —- paper thin Servers seemed to want to get you outta there ASAP

Paid $18 for popcorn shrimp which were good but too expensive. Mai tai's were good. Kids grilled cheese and fries and lemonade was $9+. Overall good food but overpriced. Becca was a good waitress.

The seafood platter was more than I could eat and very tastey. The atmosphere for outside dining was perfect for the beach. Service was a bit slow from my perspective. I would recommend to others if you are not in a hurry.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend and it didn’t disappoint! Yummy! We were told the shrimp kisses were a must on our list of foods to try. We made a reservation via the web and it was a great experience.

Ask someone where to eat in Galveston, they're likely to tell you Fish Tales. It was just ok. For the money, I'd been better off going to Landry's. It's a busy place, and it's also directly across from Pleasure Pier. I had a steak -...More

A very busy location with a good view of the beach. Good variety of seafood selections. The wait for a table and the seating was confusing. The host staff was not very informative. The Tuna salad was execellent.
