Really good and an old favorite.

The Galway Bay is one of the things I look forward to when I go to Ocean Shores. The food was good, and fairly typical Irish pub food. Which I suppose isn't very typical on the Washington Coast. Anyway, the bar is excellent, the staff friendly, and we'll go back.

I stopped in for a cold pint on the recommendation of a friend. I enjoyed the company of the locals, who suggested I try the Beef Guinness Stew, it was quite nice. The portion was large enough that I had enough to take back to my hotel room for an evening snack. My bartender, Stephan, even put an entire mini... More

Just stopped in for a couple beers and to soak up the atmosphere. Service was a little slow, but that just gave us more time to appreciate a little taste of Galway.

We had a light dinner - beef and Guinness stew which was just right. We also ordered the potato soup but sent it back and the waiter was very responsive when we sent it back and got the soup of the day instead, which we appreciated. Nice place for a casual dinner.

The Irish band had the place hopping on a Saturday night. They had a nice selection of Irish pub items on the menu -- too bad they were just OK tasting. Sure looked good when I saw them served. If you go, ask to be seated away from the bar area to save your ears.

My wife and I went to dinner in the pub section. Wonderful ambiance with all thing Irish. My wife had an excellent red wine and I had an excellent red beer. We each ordered the corn-beef sandwich on Irish soda bread served with homemade potato chips. We agreed, it was the best corn-beef sandwich we had ever tasted.

We were looking for a different place to have dinner and went to this quaint little Irish pub/restaurant and we had typical Irish fare. The Shepard's Pie was delicious and the Seafood Crumble was great. They were a little busy and the service was a wee bit slow but overall it is a good place to eat.

My family and I went here on a Fri night and really enjoyed ourselves. My son had a pizza he loved and my daughter and I had the flat iron steak with garlic sauce. It was a good sized portion and very tasty. It is a bit expensive here though. But we were treated to a live Irish singer which... More

Galway bay is a great pub and restaurant in Ocean Shores. The seafood pasty, cheese plate, Baileys Steak and Guinness and Beef are all delicious. The Ale selection here is incredible. Our server also did a fine job. There is also a nice cigar shop and gift shop attached. I picked up a nice cigar and my wife selected a... More
