Marina View with really good food

Our group often travels to the Clemson area and we've found very consistent service and food at the Galley. Group ranges from 6 to 20 and even with last minute reservations, the staff has found a way to accommodate us. I cannot speak for weekends as we usually arrive on a weekday. Wonderful... read more

Slightly above average food. O.k. service. We have been at least 2 times in the past. From what we remember it was a little above average with nice views of the lake. Another plus (+) is that it's just across the Hwy 24 bridge from our house.

I have visited this place many times and will go back again. You can arrive via boat or car and the views are fantastic. Service has always been good, although you may feel a little rushed as they try to turn over the covers. The food is above average but will never win any Michelin stars. Prices are reasonable and...

We went to The Galley for Valentines Dinner. We had reservations and were promptly seated. The dining room is a bit cramped with wait staff having to bump their way through the chairs to get things done. A good range of choices on the menu. Got a shrimp cocktail appetizer and it was quite good. Salad course was kinda blah,... More

I have always thought the Galley was overrated. The steaks remind me more of something you used to get at Ryan's. I have been there several times with large parties set up in the front room to the left, and the service has always been lacking. It's like they know they are going to get their 20% so they just...

I had the steamed mussels along with a house salad with house parmesan peppercorn dressing. Very yummy! Large portion for the $$. Hubby had the prime rib... More

I eat at The Galley about once a week. It's usually the restaurant of last resort if I can't think of anywhere else to go. It's clean, convenient, and very, very average. However, the more I eat at The Galley, the better Arby's, at Love's Truck Stop, appears as a viable option. It too is clean, convenient, and very, very... More

Always great food, great friends and wonderful atmosphere. Located at the marina on Lake Hartwell. You will meet many new friends who love the lake and great food. One of the best menus in town. Order from the grill or kitchen. I love the crab legs and grilled salmon. Reasonable prices and great service always.
