The Galley is not fancy - with, for example, a holder of paper towels on each table in lieu of napkins. Service is very friendly There is a reasonably-priced list of wines by the glass as well as bottle, beers, and a full bar. Portions are generous, especially given the prices, so watch out!

I enjoyed extra blackened broiled popcorn shrimp, along with a cup of clam chowder, and my better half had shrimp and grits. The meals were delightful, and the service impeccable. We will be back!!

The food was not prepared correctly for one of us and the for three others in our party the main course didn't have a good flavor and then when we expressed our disappointment, the waitress went to get the...

Husband had fried oysters-medium order and I got oysters and frog legs-senior portion. We were quite disappointed in both meals. They came with 2 sides, which I had to pay extra for sweet potato, even though is one of the sides. Our sweet potatoes were warm enough to melt the butter but the vegetable were cold. Our bill came to... More

Saw that a remodel had been done and decided to give this a try. Was very pleased with the cleanliness of the interior and the wide variety of items on the menu. I tried the chefs special crab stuffed broiled flounder and was very happy with my entre. The other members of my party were also pleased with their food.... More

We ate half price oysters which came lightly steamed per our request and they were shucked, sizable and very good. The hush puppies were tasty and the slaw was good and I am not a slaw eater.. They have a special most nights and will be going... More
