Fried shrimp with fries, homemade hushpuppies and slaw
English style! Beer battered fish
Stuffed with Pepper Jack cheese, wrapped with bacon & fried
We had excellent service and food! The outdoor patio had a perfect view of the ocean!
Great views and fresh seafood
Outstanding service and a very good ice cream and the food was very delicious.
The storm rolled right in just as we sat down outside. We didn’t get a server yet, but were escorted in quickly. Management worked to get us seated inside the banquet area. While we didn’t get the outside seating we had planned on, staffs quick response to getting us inside and seated was amazing!
All the food was very good. Was a little bit of a wait but our waitress was on top of it and notified the manager promptly.
Our server was fantastic, food was good, just don’t sit outside because the flies were awful.
Excellent service and good fresh food.
Fish was excellent but the side dishes were a little sad looking. My veggies consisted of 1 squash piece and two broccoli
Glad we had a reservation so got seated quickly. Service was excellent food portions were decent size and tasty. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
Had to locate a waiter once seated. No plates or silverware for appetizers. Food was okay, it’s been better! Arrived 10 min early but table was given to another party. We always eat here during visits to Galveston but this visit was disappointing for service and quality.
I highly recommend booking a reservation ahead of time. My family and I went on a Sunday for dinner and saw a clusterf*** by the entrance, I can't even get inside without bumping into other people. Overall the food and margaritas were good. Our server was nice and attentive.
We arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately on the outside patio. Our server was extremely nice and the food was delicious.
The food was very fresh, large portions and the drinks were tasty. Our server Leslie was super friendly, very attentive and went above and beyond to make sure everything was just right. We loved everything about Fish Tales and highly recommend.
Loved our server and the food was so good! We will be back. My daughter loved her Alfredo!
Without reservations would have been a 45 min wait. We had reservations and got a table immediately on the upper balcony with the best view of Pleasure Pier across the street. Good service, great food, great atmosphere.
Staff could not find the bottle of wine we ordered, leaving us sitting without ever taking our food order or telling us why. After waiting and watching the chaos we left, never having had any service beyond the initial drink order.
Ordered the fish tacos... the menu clearly said a “lemon cilantro slaw,” but the slaw was just raw cabbage... no dressing at all. When the waiter came to ask how the food was, I told him the slaw wasn’t dressed and he said it’s wasn’t supposed to me. So I told him that yes it is supposed to be... I was looking at the menu. He said if I wanted him to that he’d go “make a scene” with the kitchen... that really bothered me! He argued with me and then gets tacky with me... not good service at all. Other than that, the food was good and great atmosphere.
The girl at the hostess stand was unfriendly. The experience got better after we got past her!!
We were sat by the upstairs registers and dish collection area. The smell was terrible. It was obnoxiously loud as waiters and bussers repeatedly dropped dishes into the containers creating sudden loud noises. We rarely saw our waiter. The grilled shrimp was overcooked. We've eaten at Fish Tails several times and we've had good experiences. UNfortunately, this was not one of them.
Food and service were as expected. Would consider going again in the future.
Loved the view from the outside deck upstairs. Had fish tacos which were quite good. Very casual atmosphere. Service excellent.
Our server was Joe with the spider web tattoos and he was amazing. It was closer to closing time so it was packed but he was awesome. Definitely made our last night there so much better and a lot of fun. When we go on vacation there again 10/10 will be eating here!
The young people that we checked in with weren't very friendly. The fish, crab legs and shrimp were over cooked. Not a great experience for the amount of money we spent on our food and drinks. We went to this restaurant a few years ago and the whole experience was much better than what we had on Sunday night
Service was great, food unfortunately, was not the best. Kids had burgers, which were fine. Adults had shrimp and fish, neither of which were very good.
Food was not as good as last time. Everything else was great.
Food was excellent and a nice view of the Gulf
La comida buena, pero queríamos comer afuera y no lo permitíó el clima.
Pasta, Rice and fried shrimp have no flavor, we didn’t have to wait long to be seated with a reservation but our server was slammed and it took awhile to get greeted and to get our food out. It was a Sunday night but they didn’t seem that busy. Not worth the money at all.
Great experience! Even under staffed it was great!
The restaurant went far above their need in providing a quite place for a special family lunch on an extremely busy day.
The wait person (so sorry, his name has vanished) was terrific: no rush, happy, should be a server trainer.
Always the place of choice, even if you have to wait a bit.
Except for sitting outdoors overlooking the water everything else was a total disappointment. Food quality and preparation left a lot to be desired.
Made a reservation, but still took 45 mins to get food. Drinks were ok, overpriced plates. More of a dive bar but with upscale prices. The best part of this place is the outdoor patio view.
Food was a huge disappointment. We ordered fried oysters and it looked like they took 1 oyster and cut it up into 6 portions. Also was not fresh, tasted like they just opened a can. The rest of the meal isn’t worth mentioning. Definitely would not recommend.
Everything was great. If you get shrimp kiss just order them on the side. You get 4 kiss for $7.99 as a side or 5 for $12.99 for an appetizer.
Talk about disappointed....maybe this place is ok after playing on the beach and eating fried food, but not for a nice dining experience. I enjoyed my tuna appetizer but my husband had steak and crab legs that were not up to snuff...steak was tough and crab was overcooked. We did let the manager on duty know about the issue and he was very polite and apologized. We appreciated the apology but we won't be back.
Service was incredibly slow. Food was cold when we got it.
Great atmosphere since it is right on the seawall. Food was good and the staff was excellent
A $27 fish plate, pretty expensive for a super dry piece of fish with very little flavor and poor vegetable as a side
Will not be back
We visited Fish Tales for our last dinner while visiting for Spring Break. It was amazing! We were able to have an outdoor table right on the edge so we could watch the people and see the water while dining. Great food and ambience!
Service was excellent, friendly and welcoming. We had a party of 8 and everyone completely enjoyed their meals. Will come again when in area!
