Systematically the staff is told to not provide equal service to all people. It is a great location and has music and best suited for white people and older people. The food is just average.

The Galley up until last year, was a fun place to have dinner and listen to music.. The food, bar, and service has become mediocre at best. All of the good staff has been driven away by poor management.

This is one of our favorite lcal restaurants. My favorite is the calamari sandwich for a leisure lunch and prime rib for dinner. Food is always top-notch and service is great. A bit noisy at noon when large parties come to celebrate but the inside dining area is more enjoyable. Plenty of parking.

So many of the restaurants we visited in January (winter) were dead or very quite, it was nice to come somewhere where there were at least people. Everything is open in America year round, but not everything is busy. Food decent, prices reasonable, service great.

I have been here several times and always had good food. I love the swordfish with the rice. But the fish and chips is also popular and is usually big portions. Very nice location right on the bay. Can get very busy on Friday and Sat. nights with the live music. Plenty of free parking and they have full bar.

My girlfriend and I ate here on Saturday, Dec. 5. I was told over the phone to arrive before 6:00 pm to avoid a wait. We arrived at 5:30 and there was plenty of seating. In fact, the restaurant was never full, probably because people were preoccupied with holiday events of their own. The interior is rustic wood decor. Casual... More
