They were really busy that night, but we made reservations for 6 p.m. for a party of 7, arrived at 6 p.m. and were seated by 6:13 p.m. An added bonus is the view of Hartwell Lake and the boats docked at the marina. The variety and quality of the small plates appealed to our group. The grilled salmon was... More

Wonderful Margarits, Excellent food, Great atmosphere!!! Some of the best Filet mignon I've ever had. The asparagus was fresh, and cooked perfectly. The service was ok. we had to keep asking for silverware, and drink refills. When you bring our food, and we have to wait, and ask three people for silverware before it's finally brought to us, it takes... More

Ate early so we got a window table overlooking the lake and marina. Very picturesque. Good service, good ambience, good food, everything was excellent. Had the blackened shrimp and grits, wife and stuffed shrimp, and we shared a fresh made hot apple pie with ice cream. Friends had the shrimp and trout. All were cooked to perfection. Will be back.

I have eaten at the Galley many times. It is our go to favorite restaurant in our area. Love that we can go there by boat also. We have watched a few gorgeous sunsets there while dining. Great service and food is consistently good. Love the prime rib. Always happy when we dine there.

I joined a group of 11 to have dinner at this restaurant. We come here on Thursday nights since the weekends are crowded and you do need reservations on the weekend. Unfortunately, in the winter the sun sets early and we can't see the beautiful view of Lake Hartwell. This is a really nice restuartant with views of dock, boats... More

It had been a long time since my husband and I have eaten here and we weren't impressed when we went last time. We were invited to try it again with some friends. Our friend's wife and I had one of the specials - Parmesan Crusted Sea Bass which was very good. Her husband had prime rib which he said... More

We went there on Saturday. Amber was our waitress. She was very knowledgeable and told us all about the specials. I had the mussels, my husband and his sister and brother in law had steaks. The food was perfect. We will be going back there again.
