Late lunch on the water

We went for late lunch on a Wednesday. Plenty of seating and we asked to sit outside facing the boats in the marina. I had a mojita, my spouse a margarita, both were excellent but way too pricey. We ordered a hamburger and crab, lobster, avocado on a French roll. Our waitress started telling us... read more

I had the clam chowder and Caesar Salad. The soup was lukewarm and the dressing on the salad tasted more like mayonnaise. The husband had fish and chips. OK but quite a bit of batter. Service was mediocre.

Staying at the Chula Vista RV Resort makes the Galley a perfect place to get some vittles and cold adult drinks. During Happy Hour they have live entertainment. The view is excellent of the Marina and all that money floating next to the dock. We tried the fish tacos with their generous portions of fish. The crab cakes made for... More

This is one of my favorite places to meet friends for breakfast! On weekend evenings, it's also fun to dance to live music and the dinner is always tasty!

I don't understand the poor ratings that some have given this place. We dined here several times during our stay at the nearby RV Resort and found the food to be excellent and the service great!

Love the Galley! Live music on their big patio. Best fish and chips in town. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Right on the water at Chula Vista Harbor.

We had a table by the window, so pretty to look out at the boats and water at sunset. We went on all you can eat fish night. Food was great and enough the first helping that we didn't need seconds. Service was very courteous.

First we were seated where we didn't want to be, explanation was other tables reserved, but no one came for entirety of our dinner. Waiters kept ignoring us, service was sow, and staff was very unwelcoming. I felt like they were giving us a favor to even come to our table. Interesting part, when we finally paid, we divided our...

Called for information regarding the live music and the person goes "yea it starts at 6" click. Go to check out the scene and all the tables are reserved on the patio and in the bar. So if you are looking for live music at the spur of the moment I would not recommend this place. Its impossible to watch... More

We have been coming here for years, good food, nice atmosphere and great Bloody Mary's. However, today when I ask for salsa for my $11 chorizo breakfast I was told there is a 50 cent additional charge. What next, Fran, are you going to charge extra for mustard and catsup?
