Took my parents here for a special dinner and it did not disappoint. Had the Halibut with asparagus and garlic mashed. Parents cheaped out with the fish and chips but I had a bite and even those were cooked perfectly. Crisp on the outside and translucently perfect on the inside. Fries average, but hey. The atmosphere is casual elegant, but... More

The Galley is a fine spot in a beautiful location. The service is friendly and the food is of good quality. It is very popular and a reservation is really a must. We went to celebrate 2 people's birthdays and even with a reservation our party of 6 had to wait 15 or more minutes for a table. It just... More

The place does frying seafood justice. We had great clam chowder, one of the best of my trip, and the fried seafood with local caught seafood was great. Made my one overnight stay in Morro Bay memorable. What can one say about this place, great seafood, cold beer and great service all with great value for money. And the view... More

Had one of the better meals of our vacation in California here, with that perfect combination of top-quality seafood, great friendly service and views to die for. Seeing the sun set beyond Morro rock was one of those moments, and it was also so nice to walk outside on the deck to take great pictures. We stayed at Anderson Inn... More

Very enjoyable meal. The restaurant is right on the harbor, and we had a window seat. The service was excellent, no rush, but attentive and pleasant. The salmon was good, and the halibut and grilled asparagus excellent. They have a good wine and beer list. The menu was very good, and the service that of a formal restaurant, but most... More

Embarcadero Street in Morro Bay is a tourist trap, stay away unless you have to have salt water taffy! The only good reason to go there is this restaurant on the bay with a beautiful view of the rock. Charming servers and very good seafood in a nice setting on the water.

On Sunday (8/3) we really enjoyed our meals here. I had the Swordfish, others had the Halibut and Seafood Salad. All meals were to perfection! Service was also to a very high level. Highly recommend this Grill & Bar when visiting Morro Bay. Did I mention it's right on the water?

Right on the harbor, with views of the rock, boats, and sea lions. Calamari appetizer is thick strips, breaded, and fried to perfection. Clam chowder was very good. Oysters Rockefeller were excellent. Scallops were tender and seared nicely. The staff were attentive, and our dinner was served promptly without being rushed. We had time to enjoy our wine and appetizer,... More

Five women lunched at the Galley after a concert. Although, it was a Monday we had made reservations because the reviews advised us to do so. The reservation was not necessary at that time and day. When we arrived the host had put a couple of tables together for us and was very welcoming. The Galley is located on Embarcadero,... More
