GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANT AND BAKERY

We stopped at the Galley Hatch on a Saturday afternoon. My husband was going to order a seafood entree but, when he heard me order a turkey dinner, he followed suit. Neither of us was disappointed. The food was served promptly and was hot. Portions were generous so we had no room for dessert... read more

Galley Hatch is a local favorite! Food, and service is always consistently excellent. Kays cafe is great for take out treats; popovers, desserts, quiches, specialty coffees, etc. very busy during summer months - reservations recommended then.

The Galley Hatch has a well balanced menu to fit any preference. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. We have visited the restaurant for lunch or dinner and keep coming back. The specials are fantastic and the desserts from the bakery are to die for!

I've always liked the nautical ambience at this restaurant as well as its history. The food is good, but it's not any better than any other seafood place. The prices are a bit high and the portions are small. The last time we went, the service wasn't very good -- we were kept waiting for quite a while. Other than... More

We went with a group of people and one staff member was not very helpful with a person with a wheel chair, actually rude. My husband and I did not like our meals at all. Would never go back.

We enjoy going to the bar at the Galley Hatch for a consistently great pizza and light dinner. The room is awkward at the moment, with the entry door opening directly to the outdoors, which can be extremely cold! The waitresses are very experienced and personable, and the food is consistent and enjoyable, and the place has a distinctly neighborhood... More

I had the seafood neuburg in a popover, delish. My husband sometimes struggles to find something he likes on the menu, (not sure why), there are sandwiches/wraps/dinners. He really liked it when they did football offerings last year b/c they had a sausage sub on the menu. That said, he never fails to get an eclair at the bakery when... More

This place has some of the best lobster rolls around. Lots of lobster with just a little mayo, toasted buttered roll. Their more complex entrees are hit or miss, sometimes mediocre and sometimes good. The wait for a table here is usually shorter than other places nearby. Lovely view of ocean. Good coffee.
