Entrées came out before appetizer, so I would recommend not ordering entrées until after you get you appetizers.
The service was fine and the restaurant looks as it did the last time we visited; however, the server looked as if he had to many tables, not his fault, and the food was subpar for the price. My wife and I used to go quite often when we lived in Houston, and we were looking forward to going back. It was just such a disappointment to see that the food quality has gone down so badly. We will not be returning. 🙁
Really good food and a great location right across from Pleasure Pier. Nice and friendly staff and validated parking
Jordan t, gave us the best experience snf servece we have ever had ay any other restaurants
People like him is what brings people back again and again!!!... amazing @!!!
From the moment we arrived, service was amazing! We were acknowledged and seated in a short time and our server was friendly and food/ drinks were great!
Very good place for lunch or dinner. I shall be going back in the near future
Service was slow. Food was cold and I had to send it back. I will never be back.
Service was quite slow. We'd been there an hour before we were served our main dishes. Usually service is quite prompt. It was our first time going with COVID restrictions in place. Perhaps that was a contributing factor.
You would have thought that there was not an ordinance for social distancing in place. The entrance was blocked by people, making it difficult to get in. The restaurant was over packed and the staff were wearing their masks inappropriately. It was a very unpleasant dining experience. I felt bad that our waiter had to keep apologizing for the mistakes the kitchen made on our order. I would not recommend this restaurant and will not be returning...pandemic or not.
Amazing service, the place was packed since it was Labor Day weekend. We made a 8:30pm reservation but the hostess actually sat us down at 7:45pm when we checked in and said thank you for making a reservation before coming. The food was awesome (recommend the blackened redfish + Cadillac margarita) and service was personable even though it was packed. Overall super grateful and had a great experience with my wife. Fish tales is always top of our list when taking trips to Galveston
Maybe just bad luck but canceled an order after 1h waiting. Covid precautions not followed as waiting room was packed and not all staff were wearing masks.
We had the best waitress we have had in a long time anywhere! The food was very good but the it was so noisy! It was hard to have a decent conversation. Overall I would go again, at a quieter time.
Great place and great food, specially the seafood. Seating at the patio will definitely put you on beach atmosphere.
Too expensive for what you get. There are better options. Food was fine and service was fine, but party of 4 adults and one child was $140 plus tip and we didn’t drink but couple drinks with meals.
Our favorite place does it again. Andre was so friendly and on his game....see yall again soon!
Fish Tales is my "GO-TO" place every time I come to the island.
From out of town and wanted a view of the beach while eating, open table made that very easy and we ending up being accommodated to see the beach which was awesome. Our waiter was attentive and we got everything we needed. Ending up watching some fighting from the street and a visit from
The police. Which is not the restaurants fault at all just crazy people passing by. Food was AMAZING and staff was very nice. The ONLY thing, which is small, our child’s drink for our 4 year old had no lid, which for her she still needs ending up spilling the first time she tried to take a drink. But In all we were very pleased and will return when we visit again.
We had a reservation, but still waited when we arrived, for aleast 30 minutes. We had a brand new server, he did not know the menu, forgot items that we ordered. Kids items were incorrect. We were done eating before kids food came back out. We were a party with two separate checks, he gave us the wrong checks. While leaving the restaurant, some random folks decide to cause a scene, which came close to a fight. Not what my children needed to see. The food was not worth the price of the entree. Pretty disappointing.
Getting seated was a nightmare. We made a reservation a week before, because we knew we were going to be a large party (8 people). We arrived 10 min before our reservation and checked in, fast forward 30 minutes later we were still being told our table was getting prepped for us. We finally were told we could go up and meet the host on the 2nd floor. Once we arrived upstairs they told us they still weren’t ready for us and that a party of 14 (that just came in with NO RESERVATION) was being seated. I expressed my frustration with the hostess and they went and got a manager. We were then seated 45 minutes after arriving.
Meal and service was very good. Our server was prompt and always had refills flowing. Food came fast and tasted great. If it wasn’t for the long wait my parents would have had a great Anniversary dinner.
Great service, tasty food, clean restrooms, awesome views!
The best seafood I ever had. The whole family loved it!
Everything was amazing. Fish Tales never disappoints us. Food was wonderful. This trip was a special one. I am finally able to go out after being taken down for a month with Covid 19. Thanks to everyone there for a wonderful day. We can't wait to go again.
During COVID-19, we had a small room to ourselves. It was a best view on the 2nd story. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and was careful and wore a mask.
View was great...good service
The Drinks were great. Appetizers were ok.
Service could have been a little more attentive. Had to wave him down everytime we needed something. As for the main dish, mine was good to say the least. It sat outside the kitchen for at least ten minutes before it was served to us. I told the waiter, it came back somewhat warm. Since it was the redfish ponchatrain, and a $25 dinner they didn't remake it. But for $25, it should have been served hot.
Our table was ready minutes after we arrived for our reservation. Everyone wore masks, and staff was enforcing masks at the door for guests. Tables were spread very much apart, and our server and food were top notch as always.
Great! We’ll be back.
Food was exceptional, service was awesome!!!! Made a reservation with open table got right in while others were at a 35 minute wait !!! Loved the whole experience!!!!
Waiter was great and made reservation using open table had no wait
The service was awesome and so was the ambiance. The food was delicious. I highly recommend Fish Tales.
A few food servers were not wearing masks, other than that, we will be back
This has become one of our favorite places. Its very kid friendly, has a great menu, great ambiance and is always consistently delicious! We come here often :)
My wife and I usually go to Fishtails at least once when visit Galveston. Great place, always consistent with great service.
Our server Bobby was great. She was friendly and knowledgeable and quick to take care of us. The food was pretty good for the value. We were able to sit up stairs and enjoy the view but there was a lot of loud tables but we still enjoyed ourselves.
I wish I could remember his name! Our server was wonderful. Very attentive. Food was delicious. Watched a bird eat from the empty table next to us. Lol
It was a wonderful experience & we had amazing service!!
Our server was Adrain. He was knowledgeable, attentive & made great suggestions.
Food was delicious.
Best experience, will definitely be back.
Went on 08/06/20 and the food and service was amazing. I will definitely go back
It was a wonderful experience! The food was delicious and the service was great.
We had gone to the same Fishtails restaurant the day before and liked is so much we went back the next day. I ordered the same meal that I had the day before only it was completely different the second day. We spoke with the manager and tried to figure out what they had made for me the day prior but were unable to. Both times I ordered the Shrimp New Orleans. I left very disappointed with my meal.
If a restaurant cannot make the same meal two days in a row, how can they expect repeat customers.
We had also requested to sit on the patio but they said it was closed because of rain but other people were sitting on the patio and we had just walked there from our hotel and it was not raining.
Daughters 21st birthday. They forgot to put one of the meals in. We were finished before the last meal was received. They apologized. Nothing further was mentioned for them forgetting to put meal in with the others. Shrimp kisses were amazing! Could improve on the rice pilaf. Excellent drinks! A little pricey but overall will be returning for shrimp kisses!
