Amazing

As someone who loves to cook, I really appreciate good food and the food here was above any expectations I had. We ordered the dungarees crab cake for appetizers and they were some of the best I have ever had. I then ordered the shrimp scampi. It was indescribably, amazingly good. If you are in... read more

After some stress getting settled into our hotel it was a delight to settle into the Galley's relaxed waterfront environment. We had the scallops which were very fresh and cooked to perfection and the local swordfish, likewise fresh and perfectly prepared.

We had dinner there during our road trip in CA. The calamari starter was excellent. We both had a fish entree and it was delicious. The restaurant deserves the high ratings and we would come back.

The food is good, fast and well presented. We ate at the bar where conversation was good and the monitor on the wall lets you watch the cooks preparing your plate in the kitchen. Reservations recommended. As walk-ins, we had a 15 minute wait for the bar, over an hour for a table.

We had very high expectations leading up to our Galley experience. The clam chowder was excellent (in a cup or a bowl) and the pan-seared scallops were as tasty and appetizing as expected. However the fried prawns (butterflied) were dry and tasteless. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and excellent service but is showing signs of being a little rough... More

Visited the Galley Seafood during a break in our road trip from S.F. to Las Vegas. Expectations were high and they hit the mark. Had to wait a while for a table, we rocked up without a reservation, but it was worth the wait. Four guests seated and fed with great service and super food. Prices are reflective of the... More

We really like this small restaurant, so we dined there twice. The interior is very attractive, and almost upscale.There is a good size bar as well. We had fish entrees that were always nicely presented and perfectly cooked. The salads were fresh and the cafe lattes were rich enough to be dessert. It was always full even in January during...

We have eaten here every time we come to Morro Bay over the past 7 years and it is consistently excellent in all categories, for all meals. This time we asked to split a dinner as their portions are very generous. It was perfect, and beautifully presented. Their fish is always top notch, as are their drinks. Never diluted. Small...

The first visit was great, we sat at the bar and had dinner. The second visit was not. We ordered the same dish on our second visit, scallops, and it was prepared different, the tabs were still attached to the scallops and the sauce was on the side, leaving the scallops dry and overcooked. For the price, not good. Flip... More

The service was impeccable! A nice view of the bay from every seat. Had fun watching the kitchen staff put out food behind the kitchen line via a TV near the entrance by the bar. We had Crab Cakes, Calamari Steak and Fries, and a forgettable salad. I am usually good with taking food pictures, but the platings were just... More
