We had dinner and enjoyed a beautiful sunset from the dining room. We had the crab cakes for an appetizer. They were delicious and big portion size. I had the fish tacos that was a very sizable portion and also delicious. Even took one home as it was too much to finish if I wanted desert! Which I did! My... More

Walked around the sea front at Morro Bay on a wet Thursday night and wasn't really inspired by any of the other restaurant menus we looked at. Knew that this place rated #1 on TA and when we arrived decided to give it a try - glad we did. Got a table straight away (but unlike many other restaurants didn't... More

Like Dorn's be prepared to pay a premium for a meal at the Galley, whether lunch or dinner, but it's the kind of place when you're in the mood for a special treat and you're ready to pay a bit more for a special meal in a comfortable environment---and it's right on the waterfront. It's one of those places where... More

We went here for a lighter dinner. Ordered fish sandwich and fish tacos. They both had great fresh Swordfish which tasted great. Included salad or fries we both had a salad which included tomatoes and carrots which tastes fresh. Server was very attentive to our needs. Presentation was great. Good place to watch the sunset.

The other reviews stated it extremely well - this is the place to eat. Seafood has never been better and so well prepared. Beautiful quality of fish, very carefully cooked (naked) and served with great sauces. This is a small place, and the locals know it well, so make sure you have a reservation.

WOW!!! The service is amazing. We have always gotten a great meal for lunch or dinner. My husband and I split a glass of wine and they bring it in two glasses. The service is 5 star. We are locals and we always take our out of town visitors here. We always celebrate New Years Eve at the Galley Thank... More

Excellent, interesting fresh fish dishes. Overlooking the bay. Attentive service from Mitch, no attempt to up-sell or push specials. Lively, even on a Monday evening.

We got there, at the HIGH recommendation of the hotel we had just checked into -- expecting to have a wonderful meal -- especially for the location (right on the water -- so beautiful!) and the prices (yikes.) The atmosphere was beautiful. The waitstaff, generally lovely. My husband ordered the bacon-wrapped filet. It was very good. My gluten-free son ordered... More

First - note that I have over 300 reviews of which 90% are Very Good to Excellent. Second - there are other choices in Morro Bay that are very accomodating. The day we were here the "Catch of the Day" was Swordfish. Unfortunately if you do not eat Swordfish many of the dishes (Blackened Catch of the Day salad, Fish... More
