The host seated us quickly without a reservation in a crowded restaurant. The food was outstanding and service was excellent. Loved it. We'll come back to Morro Bay for the view but also for dinner at Galley.

We stayed at the Anderson Inn and were happy to have this amazing restaurant on premises. Our dinner was delicious and the service was fast and friendly. We loved the scallop appetizer and the naked fish entrees. Don't miss it!

Always busy, working hard to turn out fresh seafood with good service. Sides are an afterthought. The best Morro Bay has to offer.
