We enjoyed our dinner here. We were lucky enough to score last minute reservations at this restaurant on a very busy Saturday night. We arrived a few minutes early, hoping to have a drink at the bar, but the bar was full and so we waited till our reservation time opened up. We had a delightful waitress, she helped us... More

Very nice restaurant, food and service. We stopped in at 6:45pm on a Friday without a reservation and they were able to seat us right away. The service was prompt and they had a nice menu with lots of choices for fresh seafood and meats. We both had scallops and they were good. We really enjoyed the fresh veggie sides... More

I used to go here starting in the 70's. The former owners were gracious, hospitable and served great food at reasonable prices. Unfortunately this present establishment is not as nice and the food is not as good with higher prices. I will never eat here again; not because it is lousy, but rather, because I remember the way it was... More

If you want fresh Maine Lobster this is the place to go on the Central Coast. Lovely ambience and great view of the harbor.

This restaurant was fantastic. The service was great, food was amazing, and great atmosphere. It's too bad we are just passing through and probably won't have an opportunity to eat here again.

We were staying right next door and had to eat at the Galley. The food was wonderful and fresh. Our only problem was that some locals love the place too and don't seem to wash every day. We had to move twice because of the odor and ended up at the bar because of this. The owner was gracious and... More

It started with the bread - warm dense textured rolls. Then the clam chowder actually came with a whiff of clams before I even dig in - I could smell it! I ordered seared scallops - five plump 3/4 inch thick juicy, sweet scallops perfectly done. My dining partner ordered Oacific rockfish, supposedly what they called "naked" fish - but... More

We usually go here for a fish and chips lunch (see other review) but were still around in the evening about 20 miles away and decided to try their dinner selections. Best idea we had. As always you get greeted by the owner, David. we were seated quickly and given our drinks quick while looking at all the good selections.... More

We started our Los Angeles to San Francisco road trip and stopped half way in Morro Bay on New Year's Eve. I called The Galley two days previously to try to book a table knowing full well it would be fully booked. But they did say try walking in on the night as they keep a few tables for just... More
