Went at night. There were tables available but no hostess at the front. We waited 10 minutes for someone to show up. The drinks were weak for what they cost. Food was Landry's food. No surprises there.

I've eaten here before, but this was the worst experience I've had at Fish Tales. I suggested this place to a group of friends. The food I ordered did not come out the way I specified it. The one's that ordered burgers, got theirs burnt. The food came out at all different times for our group. Waited almost an hour... More

Table of 14 for reservations at 6:45 pm. Yes, they take reservations and accommodate very well. Outstanding service by our waiter. Put us in a room upstairs all to ourselves. Food was tasty. Great oysters and the Ultimate Shrimp was an excellent combo to enjoy (see pic). Directly across from Pleasure Peer. For gulf coast food on the water, this... More

What a great dining experience! The food was great and the staff was even better. At the bar area, we had a great waiter - Chance. He was funny and kept the drinks coming during happy hour. We really enjoyed our experience of waiting for a table because of him. The place was crazy busy so we really appreciated his... More

Our meal was perfect, and the staff seated us in an area that was quieter, near a window. They were very attentive. It made for a nice break from being out in the hustle and bustle of the seawall area. We were able to sit and people watch and enjoy the view of the Pleasure Pier.

Love the food and we didn't have to wait long. We sat outside and seeing the Pleasure Pier and all that was going on was nice. Our waiter was awesome and will go again.

We had a delicious meal here, was busy but had excellent service! Tried some of the appetizers, which were very good. Parking was a little confusing as we thought we had to pay to park in the parking lot, so parked on the street but found out it was free to park when were there, but I don't think it... More
