We loved this restaurant so much we visited it two nights in a row. Everything we ordered was delicious. The first night we ate there they had a very good Irish singer entertaining. He was very entertaining. I would really recommend this restaurant.

Galway is open for Breakfast only from 11am to 1pm so not many people go there for breakfast. However, their rashers, directly imported from Ireland are supper and worth the wait for a late breakfast or brunch outing.

We ate in the bar area. Nice atmosphere, but prices were expensive and portions were small. Server was pleasant. O.K. to try for Irish food, but a bit pricey for a simple dinner.

This was a great discovery for us on a recent trip to the beach for the weekend. Being married to an Irish descendant, we had to make the stop. We found a whole complex, with a store devoted to all things Irish, a cigar lounge (N/A), a pub with a great bar, and a family dining room. We were there... More

For dinner, we found Galway Bay to be, by far, the best meal in Ocean Shores. It feels "authentic" in terms of atmosphere: friendly good service, comfortable, traditional Irish pub food combined with some US standards, and a good beer selection. I had the Forfair Bridie, which was rich, savory, and just right after a day walking windswept beaches. My... More

If you like Irish pub food, this is for you. If you like beer, this is for you. If you like fun live music, this is for you. If you need a family section, this is for you.

A meal at Galway Bay is always on our list when we go to Ocean Shores. Quaint and cozy place with good beers and drinks. The wings are some of the best I've had anywhere. I visit for the soda bread and Shepherd's Pie - yummy and one of my favorites. But we haven't been disappointed by anything we have... More

The Galway Pub is my local so I might be a little prejudiced. Been going to the Galway for many years because it is welcoming, warm and run by two of the most generous people I have met. Try William's Bloody Mary and the "rasher and egg" breakfast. You'll be back for more.

Fun atmosphere and the Guiness is about the best I've tasted on this continent. Served by Samantha who was outstanding. Dinner was overpriced but tasted great. Even had to grab a t-shirt from the gift shop on the way out.

Good food and fun atmosphere. We went there for lunch, then returned for drinks that evening and really enjoyed ourselves.
