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.

We sat at the bar for happy hour . The drinks are a very good value and the appetizers are very good. The bartender was very friendly and helpful. It was a happy experience with friendly patrons.

our waitress was super friendly, we shared and appetizer, seafood cocktail and it was good, ordered the redfish and it came out lukewarm, sent it back and after 10 or 15 minutes we got the same plates back, the plated were warm but the food was still not. She never asked if things were better and she pretty much disappeared... More

We had an awesome dinner here after a long day of touring The Strand. We had a table with a perfect view of the stern of the masted sailing ship Elissa. The service was excellent and the food was awesome. A repeat for sure!
