Why so many flies?!?!

The food was adveage, I'd actually go back, price was right but oh my goodness the rear part of the restaurant has flies, live and dead, all over the rear window. Another observation was that the front part was nice and cool from AC, the rear part was muggy. The staff was kind and friendly and... read more

The Galley was a pleasant dining experience. Fresh seafood,great service and moderately priced menu. There were many selections,the lobster mac n cheese is to die for.Huge portions of fried whole bellied clams. We were a party of 9 and all the food was serviced on time and all together.A great family reunion with a memorable meal to accompany the festivities.

We were able to get a "deck" seat right away at 6:45, which should have been the red flag. Expecting a somewhat waterfront seat (my bad) its basically a dirt parking lot view with the river in the background. Started with a good stiff drink and was disappointed after that. Bread was like a grocery store sub roll. Salad was... More

Food was fresh and very good. Our waitress was friendly and attentive but did not seem to know much about the food or what items the bar may have.

Sad to have such a great location but the food fell far too short. The fisherman's platter had been sitting somewhere and was rubbery at best, not hot. The fried clams were heavy and lukewarm with dried breadcrumbs as a batter. Not the best place in town to have dinner though I have had a good lunch there. The beer... More

Oh my gosh, the clams, scallops and haddock are wonderful here! Not to mention the yummy chowders, and traditional offerings. They have wine and beer also. You can dine in the front, the rear, the bar, or outdoors- whatever you like! There are some water views of the river as well. The Galley is affordable and dependably delicious.

A nice restaraunt with a water view. We stopped in for lunch. I've tried clam chowda all over and I'd rank this one in the top 10%. Nice and thick with just enough clamp and potatoes. Also had the steak and cheese sub which was good. I liked the fact you could get it with 1/2 fries and 1/2 rings... More

There's a beautiful deck to enjoy the view and a big airy indoor dining room. The food was good and it's family friendly for day time and a nice spot for post beach/boating cocktails.
