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.

I really enjoyed the service and we had a pretty good meal, but nearly $70 for two people at lunch is too much. We had a meat pie appetizer, a fried seafood combo, and two pieces of pie... the price was too steep. The soft shell crab and fried oysters were very good. Everything else was decent. I was a...

we go there once a month for the seafood and the service is very casual. Always a hit, the boiled crabs and the shrimp are very tasty and seasoned well

Absolutely great experience. Fried Frog Legs (4). Boiled Shrimp (1/2#). Soft Shell Crab (2). Boiled Crawfish (4#). Fantastic staff (and it was a very busy Tuesday lunch hour). This was probably our best overall dining experience (Food/Service/Setting) during our trip to New Orleans. Mr. B's was very good as was Arnaud's but The Galley made us feel comfortable and at...

This restaurant opens for lunch at 12:00. I arrived about 11:45 and it was already almost full. Everyone around me was eating and drinking, but I was ignored. When I finally got a waiter's attention, he actually told me the restaurant didn't open for another 2 minutes. It was obvious that regular customers could be served early, but newcomers had... More

This is one of those great neighborhood places that serves fantastic soft-shell crab po-boys, oyster po-boys, and a variety of other seafood dishes, too, including a great gumbo and seafood platter. These are the fine folks who bring us soft-shell crab po-boys and fried catfish po-boys at the Jazz Fest every year. Thank you, Galley Seafood! If you've never had... More

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.
