Very good place to eat in Morro Bay.

This too is a highly rated place on Tripadvisor. While we enjoyed the view and the service was very good, the food was good but not great. There were four in our group and each tried a different dish. I am not sure if we would return as I think it would be nice to try some of the other... read more

Luckily made it to the Galley. We had made reservations through Open Table for the Galley - but it turned out to be another restaurant in another town. The owner of the Galley took care of us and made us a spot at a beautiful table. What a treat of fresh fish, delicious sides, warm and friendly service, amazing views,... More

Friendly, welcoming and delicious is what I think of when I recollect our experience at the Galley. For starters, the Galley features a great wine list with a unique selection of local wines that is far from run of the mill. They have a wonderful caesar dressing, not overwhelming, just right. The chowder was creamy but not too heavy and... More

Service was fine, the fish was really fresh, and the cooking was excellent. Only negative is that the noise level can be high. A really lovely view of Morro Rock is a bonus

Most of the eateries on the Embarcadero serve fried, fast-food seafood. The Galley's "naked" fish dishes put it in category a big step up from the rest. We had the pan seared scallops appetizer. It was heavenly. It was prepared differently from the scallop skewer at Dorn's, but it was comparable in quality. The clam chowder was good, but too... More

Delicious food, though a little pricey. We enjoyed the seafood and the yummy chocolate desert. Great service too.

We stumbled across this restaurant in this very touristy town. Reservations are recommended. From the menu, it looked like the food was going to be a grade above the other places that we had passed so we put our name and phone number on the 2 hour waiting list and walked to boardwalk looking for another place to have a...
