We decided to eat at the Galley because of the high rating. We are staying for a week, so we ate here on Monday and it was very good, I had the halibut with fresh vegetables and my husband had scallops. The portions were adequate, and although it was a little pricey, we decided to dine there again today. I... More

Enjoyed the oysters rockerfeller, seared scallops and halibut. Service was friendly and efficient. Recommend making a reservation as this restaurant seems to be very popular and has a crowd waiting. The oysters Rockerfeller was very good. Oysters were large and tender. The halibut was moist and very good along with the garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Would definitely return.

We loved this place. With no reservation we chose to be immediately seated at the bar. The menu was excellent and varied but with an obvious focus on the spectacular fish selection. Watching the meals being prepared on the kitchen monitor was fun and the draft beers were delicious. The staff were friendly and the food was really excellent. Overall... More

Stopped by on my way up PCH and found this nice restaurant by the bay. Great view! I had the swordfish and it was excellent. The service was good and they were able to find a table even though we had no reservation. The wine recommendation fit the food very good, and I recommend trying a local wine. To top... More

Usually you need a reservation to get a seat in this restaurant, but we took a chance and they were able to find us a table. This is not the norm, which shows how great the food and service is. Our waiter was very attentive, recommended a enjoyable wine, and knew the menu and specials very well. You really can't... More

The Galley's #1 ranking on Trip Advisor is well deserved. Well prepared seafood, excellent service and a beautiful setting. We made reservations several days ahead of time and are glad we did. The place is very popular and was full the evening we were there. The view of Morro Rock from the restaurant at sunset is spectacular.
