Good eats

We had fish and chips here and it was good. Service was good also but our cloth napkin was stained with looked like ketchup and quite large stains. Only noticed it before leaving. Sort of put a damper on our experience.

Moro Bay is such a great stop on the PCH and The Galley is a great place to eat lunch. We have been here before and will return again. After we plugged in our car at the municipal lot we walked down to the harbor for lunch. This is where Jack Lalaine came almost daily and he lived a wonderfully... More

Living down the road from Morro Bay, I think this is the best restaurant in Morro Bay and probably San Luis Obispo County. Our other favorite in Cambria is Robbins and San Luis, Buona Tavola. The seafood is nicely prepared with excellent pricing. The surroundings are quite nice, but not metropolitan pretentious. This is our idea of a great dining... More

Ate lunch here on our way home from San Simeon. We want a closer look of the rock but ended up enjoying lunch at the same time. Service is excellent and fast. The servers always wear a big smile. The swordfish which I have is moist and sooo good! Even the tuna which my daughter had is really good. Above... More

Good food. Excellent service. Clam chowder was good but not very good. The rest of the food was good.

My wife and I tried several times to dine at the Galley without reservations. Every time we were told it would be an hour and 45 minute wait. On our most recent trip to Morro Bay my wife decided to surprise me with reservations. She had her choice of 5:00 or 8:00pm. We usually don't like to dine that late,... More

Three of us had lunch here and very much enjoyed the view, food, and wine. I had the lobster roll, which was very tasty. One friend had calamari (believe it was like a steak and not rings) and he said it was very tender and good. Another friend had the fish sandwich and said it was OK. The waiter suggested... More

Make a reservation to avoid a long wait, at least on the weekend. Not cheap ($80 for 3 with no alchohol) but definitely worth it! Scallops, wild rice pilaf, asparagus perfect. Swordfish chilled jumbo shrimp and crispy fries all great. Smallish portions compared to some places, but really closer to what we should be eating. Nobody left hungry!

We enjoyed the well prepared fish and friendly service with a wonderful view of the bay. The halibut and the snapper were cooked perfectly. It is easy to recommend this restaurant for a good dining experience in MorroBay
