    They were very friendly. The waitress said she talked to the chef and he would make sure it was gluten free. I only got the grilled chicken and a plain baked potato. And I still got sick and very bloated. I don't know if the chicken was with other chicken breast with seasoning or something with gluten but I don't feel good at all. They were nice but to be safe just wouldn't eat there again with celiac disease

    Waiter and manager were very knowledgable and helpful about my allergy. Modified the dish I wanted so it was safe for me. Highly recommend!

    food was great showed up about 30 minutes before they closed and seemed like they did not want to serve us at first but did. it seemed more like they wanted to get out of there. As a former waiter I did not like they way they treated us.

    No GF menu, but the manager is anxious to help. Unfortunately I think they all need more education. I had the ribs with the shrimp stuffed with jalapeƱo cheese and wrapped in bacon with a side of rice pilaf. I was afraid at they way they responded so took a gluten ease witch usually takes care of cross contamination, but I still got a few spots of DH, so there must have been a little G there somewhere. Food was awesome!

    Limited GF options. Waiter said the ribs were GF but they were not. Thankfully, the chef caught it. The food was good once we got it. The service was slow and he was slightly confused. The atmosphere was great with a wonderful outside area.

    No GF knowledge at all! Called ahead to see if they have a GF menu; was told they could accommodate us. Server said anything grilled was GF. When asked about sauces and sides, she was lost and went to kitchen at least 5 times to ask a question. Ordered grilled mahi with no sauces. First plate came out with sauce.on side, but it had spilled onto chicken. Sent it back. Second plate looked fine. Wait, what is that hiding under the vegetables? It's spaghetti noodles all under the vegetables. Manager was quick to refund us for that meal, but wasn't interested in hearing my explanation for why it is so important to not cross contaminate.

    Yes, yes, yes! My family and I went here base off the earlier review. We asked to speak to chef Jorge and he is amazing! If you want fresh seafood go here(they also have chicken, ribs, etc.) . Others places near cannot beat the service and quality! When we come back to Galveston, we will eat here.

    We recently vacationed in Galveston and really wanted fresh seafood but didn't see a restaurant on this site that served fresh seafood. We saw this restaurant located directly across the street from Pleasure Pier and really wanted to see if they could serve us. We are a family of Celiacs. The chef, Jorge, came to our table and he told us he could make anything we want. We ended up ordering blackened salmon and grill Mahi Mahi. He knew how to avoid cross contamination. The food was delicious!!! No one got sick. Chef Jorge was fantastic and came out twice to check on us. I highly recommend Fish Tales!! I'm definitely going back next time we vacation there.
