When we first came to Hampton, I was told by 'reviews' that I probably didn't want to eat at this establishment. Since then, I was directed here for pastries for a dinner we were hosting. I've also noticed how crowded the parking lot ALWAYS is. So, when my mother-in-law came to stay recently, we went to the Galley Hatch for... More

This was our second trip to the restaurant while visiting family in the area. We love the varied menu! Great family place that accommodates kids as easily as adults. Bakery located in the front is very good and we always take goodies home. Our group is large and we always make reservations. The staff is superb and the food is... More

We have dined at the Galley Hatch twice en route from New Hampshire to Maine...when taking scenic Route One. This is a great find...fresh fish and shellfish...all prepared to order and very fresh. They also serve chicken and beef dishes. I had a delicious chicken breast served with Israeli couscous and fresh green beans. My husband had a sirloin steak,... More

In the past our dining experiences at Galley Hatch have been less than favorable. On a recent visit to Galley Hatch it was memorable. Our party of 4 all had their perfectly served Prime Rib. One of our guest ordered the 56 oz. medium Prime Rib and it was done to perfection, and yes he ate it all. lol. The... More

I love. The Galley Hatch...have for over 20 years.....but NOT today! I had the arugula salad with roasted vegetables, but all I found were 3 small pieces of carrots! The dressing was delicious, but basically all I had was a pile of greens! The bread plate was also disappointing. It consisted of one white bread roll and a piece of... More

A great place for a couple, a family or a group function. This restaurant is deceptively large - there is ample seating in several different rooms. Though there is room for alot of people, I never felt cramped. The staff hustles here... they move quickly and you need to be careful if you are standing in a corridor that leads... More

Came here for a business dinner as my two visitors from out of town wanted lobster. The receptionist at our hotel recommended this place as being good and more affordable than some of the more well known restaurants in Newburyport. It is true that it is definitely more affordable and the food is good, but not excellent. Our server was... More

I've been visiting Hampton for the last nearly 20 years and I've not yet had a disappointing visit to this restaurant either for lunch or dinner. As usual, they were busy at lunchtime but we got seated quite quickly - the "Host" spent time with the couple in front, sharing the news which is probably why they have such huge... More

We almost did not go in as the parking lot was full but we got in quickly with no wait. Service was pretty quick and the fish fry I had was good. Onion rings were SUPER!! Not all batter and no onions. Wife loved her meal so it was a good experience all around. A reliable, steady place for a... More

We have eaten at the Galley Hatch several times a year for the past 20 years, and have enjoyed it, but after today's lunch we will not go back. The Reuben sandwich was inedible, the meat was full of gristle and fat. My husband's Haddock sandwich was just o.k., and the potato salad had too much mayo. The menu no... More
