My previous blog post was about our Beach Day at Galveston Island.
We had dinner that day at Fish Tales which is located near Galveston Island.
Fish Tales is a Cheery seaside hangout with balcony seating offering casual American seafood & tropical cocktails.
The restaurant specializes in seafood, straight from the Gulf of Mexico, pasta, steaks, salads and more.
We arrived at Fish Tales right before the dinner rush. The restaurant faces the Historic Galveston Island Pleasure Pier. The hostess seated us immediately. We requested balcony seating facing the Pier.
The weather was perfect for outdoor seating. The view was incredible.
After we were seated we waited for the waiter to come to the table and take our drink orders. The wait was quite long for the waiter to arrive. Eventually, I went inside and asked for our waiter or waitress.
The waiter arrived and apologized for the long wait. He took our drink orders and returned quickly with our drinks.
I ordered a Fruity Mocktail, the Sunset Punch. This mocktail which for those who may not know is a non-alcoholic fruity drink. The Sunset Punch was beautiful presented. One of the best Mocktail that I have ever had.
It was so good, I had a second one, the Islander. Superb! Tasty, fruity and delicious.
We ordered an appetizer sampler called the Hot Trio. The Hot Trio included Crab Balls, Shrimp Kisses, Seafood Stuffed Jalapenos with fried onions and dipping sauces.
The Crab Balls is a dish with blue crab meat and pepper jack cheese that is deep fried. So good!!! My favorite of the Trio. A little spicy without being overpowering. I loved the crab meat and pepper jack cheese together.
The seafood stuffed jalapenos were just OK to me. It was missing something, but I’m not sure what. Maybe seasoning in the stuffing.
The Shrimp Kisses included shrimp stuffed with pepper jack cheese wrapped with bacon and fried. Really good.
For the kids, we ordered the Fried Fish and fries for Z-man. The fish was fried perfectly, golden brown. He loved his meal.
Baby girl ordered the Grilled Cheese and fries. She didn’t feel like eating seafood, so the grilled cheese was a good option for her.
The Hubby ordered the Redfish Mardi Gras. The dish included a Creole Chipotle Cream Sauce, andouille sausage, shrimp, crawfish, poblanos and corn pico de gallo served with white rice and sauteed veggies.
This dish was excellent. Well seasoned with a good balance of flavors. The veggies were sauteed nicely. The dish was served with yellow rice instead of white, which was fine. A really good choice.
I ordered the Caribbean Tuna. The Caribbean Tuna was served with Blackened tuna, grilled Shrimp, pineapple salsa, rice and black beans. I was so excited to try this dish. And it didn’t disappoint, the dish was really good. A nice presentation with the Grilled Pineapple.
The Pineapple Salsa with the Tuna worked extremely well. I loved the black beans with the dish. Really good.
We were stuffed and had no room for dessert but if you dine at Fish Tales, save room for dessert. Check out their large assortment of ice cream and dessert. I loved the setup downstairs for the desserts.
In addition, there was a window outside that you can walk up to order from the street. Really cool and perfect if you are at the beach or enjoying a nice day at the Historic Pleasure Pier.
Overall, Fish Tales was a good choice for Dinner. We enjoyed our time at the restaurant. Our seating was perfect with a good view. Even though the service started off slow, the waiter turned out to be a really good waiter. The food was served hot and prepared nicely.
