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

The Galley was recommended to us as a place to celebrate our daughter's graduation, and it did not disappoint. We made a reservation in advance to 9 of us, and didn't have a problem adding to that number the day of the reservation. The location can't be beat. It's right on the lake with beautiful views. The dining room is... More

We prefer to go during the week when the crowd is not as energetic as the weekend. Our visit this past week was enjoyable with a wonderful view of the lake, great food, and friends we hadn't seen in awhile. I enjoyed plank salmon and asparagus (small plate) and a wonderful pear salad. My husband is a beef person and... More

This restaurant is our absolute favorite when in Anderson. The staff, the view down the lake, the food, the ambience. Everything. Prices are reasonable and they offer smaller portions as well as full sized entrees.

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...
