Unexpected Upscale find

Just moved to the area and found this place. We were very surprised to see it was upscale dining. The patio area is probably a great place in the warmer months. We had appetizers and drinks. The Wine selection is huge. We saw many steaks going past to diners. We also saw some really dressed... read more

We have been a couple of times and liked it every time. This visit we were seated by the huge fish tank behind the bar which also has a lake view. I went with the Hawaiian snapper. It was excellent, perfectly cooked. The peppadews appetizer was awesome. It has a very unique taste and you must try it. I'm hoping... More

This is my very favorite place to go on special occasions (Birthday, Anniversary, etc.). The atmosphere, views, and service are outstanding. Everything I've chosen from the menu has been excellent! The portions are very generous (I always take some home). It's a great place for couples and small groups. You just feel special when you leave!

When we have a special occasion to celebrate our whole family Thinks Marina Grog & Galley is the best place to go. Food is always excellent, atmosphere is really special. If you go be sure to enjoy the patio for drinks, amazing setting.

I dined alone on this visit (my first) although it is clear that this is the place to bring a date. From the open air patio to the fish tanks that line the bar, this place oozes romance. While dated, the decor is exactly what you would expect from a fine restaurant on the water. The staff are attentive (Joe... More

We grabbed a Groupon deal for the MG&G and wanted to try it based on my Brother and his wife's recommendation. So we made the drive from Kearney to Lake Lotawana. One of the owners greeted us and led us to a super lake view window. He has been on the lake since the 40's and owned the restaurant for... More

My Husband & I are always looking for a special place to celebrate my Birthday & our Anniversary. I called a week in advance to make the reservations, mentioning our celebration. I had asked for an 8pm reservation time and was told by the Hostess of the beautiful view of the lake sitting outside. I told her I preferred to... More

Grog and Galley is a nice restaurant for friends to get together or for a special celebration with your spouse. They have very good steaks and other dishes. Service is always excellent. Many times they have special sale items, which are a great deal for this kind of nice restaurant. The owner is very nice also.
