Love this place!

The Galley is a wonderful neighborhood place with great seafood and daily specials. Eat outside the box here & try the fried artichoke hearts. Expect a wait on Friday nights, but drink a beer in the parking lot and all is good.

A friend took me here back in 2012 and it made a huge impression. So I was delighted a different friend brought me again last week. A big platter of delicious boiled crawfish was my choice both times. I'm sure the soft-shell crabs and shrimp are just as tasty. And if (like me) you're a fan of mac&cheese, have that... More

neighborhood place been around awhile, unfortunately the quality and consistency has gone down while their prices have gone up. Crawfish étouffée dinner was all gravy with about 14 tiny crawfish, salad was frozen/wilted iceberg- lacks imagination.

Fantastic boiled crawfish and the servers were always right there when you needed them. Prices were reasonable. We went twice in one week.

Always enjoy my meal here! Casual, attentive staff, parking. Today we had onion rings, shrimp salad & boiled shrimp with "veggies" (corn on the cob, potatoes, mushrooms, sausage - anything you can throw into the boil!) Love the spicy cocktail sauce too. Always cleats my sinuses!!!) Will be back for crawfish next time.

This restaurant located on historic Metairie Rd. is one of our family's favorite seafood restaurants. Everything is served by cheerful staff members and is fresh and tasty. The boiled crawfish are some of the very best in Metairie. The crabmeat and spinach salad is my personal favorite item on the menu.

Boiled seafood was delicious, seasoned just right. Crawfish hush puppies and crab claws appetizers were good. Service was great.

This is my go-to spot when visitors come to town and want to experience fish. You can get fish here. They know how to prepare it and you will not be disappointed. You may have to wait for a table, but the service is efficient and the food excellent.
