This is one of a few of the more elegant gourmet restaurants on the Embarcadero. Not your fish & chips joint. Quiet atmosphere, comfortable, beautiful views and very good food and service.

Great service by Jennifer. 5-1/2 stars on a rating of 5 stars. We'll definitely be back when next in the area. Actually was one of the best meals we've had in a restaurant, on a par with the... More

The fish was very well cooked - expertly! But the sides were not up to the same standard: just mixed vegetables steamed. We had the lunch plate so no potatoes. The bread was very good - not standard restaurant rolls. The have butter and brought clarified butter for the fish on request - not margarine. Their wine list is good... More

I have been a resident and client of The Galley for more than 20 years. The Anderson Brothers are pillars of Morro Bay. We arrived at The Galley to enjoy dinner tonight with guests from out of town as we consider The Galley to be a premiere restaurant in Morro Bay. The service by Jennifer was incomparable. The meals and... More

A beautiful view of the bay, a cozy restaurant, an extensive wine list and great food. Every plate that was served at the table was top notch. We went in the winter, Morro Bay was relatively empty, but the restaurant was full. Reservations recommended.

We visited this well-known restaurant on March 16th and enjoyed a very memorable dinner. The restaurant has a very nice view of Morro Bay Rock and the sun set as we got seated. The menu was very extensive and we both chose the clam chowder, a delicious starter followed by the scampi and the swordfish for my wife. Both of... More

This place is by far and away THE BEST dining experience with a view on Central coast, not all CA. The Galley is the epitome of that perfect blend of quality food, great ambiance, wonderful view (best in Morro Bay) and attentive wait staff. I love that the every seat in the house has a window view of the harbor... More

We went there twice(5 stars for 1st visit/3 stars for second). The first visit and sitting at the bar for our meal provided great ambiance with Joe the bartender and our Oysters Rockefeller and Fish & Chips along with the beer and wine choices were great. The second visit still provided good food and indifferent service. We were never asked... More

My wife and I have enjoyed wonderful dinners at the Galley, especially at sunset, and because of the great food and setting we wanted to treat our grown children and their spouses for my birthday.
