A little Irish in Ocean Shores!

My husband and I had dinner at Galway Bay, a rather large restaurant/bar with interesting gift shop. I liked the separation of "family dining" versus adult dining. The bar was fully stocked with beer, wine and hard liquor, and Growlers were available for purchase. My husband had the steak with a... read more

We went here for dinner, but due to being ignored for over 10 minutes before ordering and then waiting for our beers to get sufficiently warm on the bar as our server ignored them, we settled for a cup o' chowder & a Caesar salad just to keep my daughter from starving to death. The chowder was was delicious, as... More

Tasty and authentic Irish food. The atmosphere is fun and feels like you're in Dublin. There is an attached store selling Irish giftware. Love it!

The food was great as always. The beer was great as well. We have been working our way through the menu ever since we discovered Galway Bay. The clam chowder is great . The crab cakes are fantastic and they are huge. Everything on the menu has been great. It is our favorite place in Ocean Shores.

As you drive up to the restaurant-pub, the building seems unassuming and then you notice the double red doors that usher you into a dining experience that literally transports you to what in my humble opinion every Irish Pub wants to be - a little slice of Érie and a welcoming place for road weary travelers. The service is top... More

Excellent food, nice atmosphere......we'll definitely be back. Prices were a bit on the high side, so don't bring along a family of five expecting to get out with a Denny's type of tab. Regardless, it's Irish cuisine and they do a good job!

Went for lunch and liked it so much went back for dinner. The clam chowder was rich and flavorful. The steak was one of the best I have had. The band played upbeat, fun music.

Galway Bay offers authentic Irish food and brew. It's a bit of Ireland in Ocean Shores. They also have regularly schedule Irish music events. They also have a custom-made Galway Red Ale, made by Dick's Brewery in Centralia, that we really liked. Growlers available, too.

Every time that we are in town we have a meal here. I love the free live music. The place is huge so they always have room. Service is always good. Drinks are delicious and prices are fair.
