Great meal with a million-dollar sunset view

The Galley located on Lake Hartwell is worth the trip. We were there just in time for a beautiful sunset over the water. Our meal was excellent and the service was quick and easy. The small plate selections were varied and just the right proportions. Our seafood was fresh a very tasty. We will be... read more

You can enjoy a fine meal without breaking the wallet. Only downside, sometimes service can be a little off and if mistakes are made don't expect management to resolve... More

We met our small group there for dinner and we were very pleased with the food. I had the stuffed shrimp with salad and baked potato. My hubby had salmon and squash casserole. Everything was very good and I want to go back soon. The service was pretty good for the most part.

I have nothing but praise for The Galley. The seafood is fresh and tasty. The steaks are great! I love that they take reservations! Well worth the little drive out from town!

Great restaurant located on Lake Hartwell. Great food and atmosphere while you enjoy the stunning views of the lake. Indoor and outdoor dining. Locally owned and operated. Friendly and efficient staff. May want to make a reservation for weekend dining. My favorite place in Anderson.

We met a group of friends for an early dinner. This place is always good and can be depended on for a good meal. They have plenty of tables and the waiters are always helpful. I had the shrimp and grits and really enjoyed the meal

Excellent food, and a great view of the lake. My wife had the filet, and I had the salmon. Both were done perfectly. Our waitress was very attentive and took great care of us. This is a great place to eat for any occasion.

People were there with shorts on. The bruschetta appetizer with the balsamic vinegar was so very good and enough for 2 to 3 people. I had the... More
