Happened to be driving past Morro bay, we ignored the old power plant and decided to stop for lunch. This was the first restaurant we found and boy did we strike lucky. Excellent service from the moment we entered. Kids lived it....and my kids are fussy eaters. Reasonably priced food and a great view over the bay and rock. Would... More

We ate light(ish) here - fish tacos and salads, and everything was good - fresh ingredients well prepared. The sun setting behind Morro Bay Rock was cool too.

My husband and I stayed at the affiliated Anderson Inn for our 30th wedding anniversary. The Galley put our names in their menu and gave us a free glass of champagne and free dessert. Even without the royal treatment, we are foodies and the restaurant was great. Innovative salads and starters, the freshest of seafood, a great wine list and... More

My son and i enjoyed our lunch here. It's a bit pricey but we liked it a lot. He gave the score of 4 and I agree. Nice location. Ambiance of restaurant is a 2 but we went for the food. I ordered the seafood salad and he ordered the scallops and both were very good.

We have had dinner and lunch here. Fish tacos with fries is an excellent choice for lunch. The wine menu by the glass is pricey, but the views are worth every penny during the daytime. The service is fast and friendly. There are countless reasons why this restaurant is rated number one. You definitely need to check this place out... More

Great location, scenic harbor view, my husband had clam chowder really good, I had a Caesar salad excellent, and we both had fish and chips which were delicious! I hope to return again for dinner!

Group went there for birthday on a Sunday-full at 5:30! Special, personalized menus for birthday person and rest of group given out, signed by staff. A fun touch. As a resident of Morro Bay, I pass by almost every day. Perusing the menu, I have not been too interested. Food preparation is not inspired, plain, fresh, simple with a nice... More

The view is wonderful but ambiance inside is lacking. The food was fresh and favor just ok (I had the 'naked white sea bass - I wanted something locally caught). A bit over priced for what you get. Not so sure I'd go back.

The Galley continues to turn out the very best food in Morro Bay, especially seafood. After 20 years of vacationing in Morro Bay, I have not eaten any where else in town that can match the quality and preparation of food like they do it here. We will generally eat here twice during our stay, I always get the fresh... More

We enjoyed the chowder, baked oysters and crabcakes. Well cooked and warm ona damp, chilly evening. We would have had a great sunset view of Morrow Rock if the fog hadn't been so thick.
