“Amazing find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

Some friends took us to The Galley for crawfish and we were not disappointed. Have been back and the food is fresh and delicious. Prices are good and somethings are downright cheap. My friend had 2 whole crabs for $8. If you're visiting the Quarter, drive on out to Old Metairie and give this place a try.

“Great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

The food at the Galley is fantastic! We had the boiled shrimp, grilled trigger fish, fried softshell crab, mac and cheese. Everything is awesome. This is where the locals eat. We shall eat there again when in NOLA! The waiter was very knowledgeable and gave us the best service.

“The Best in local non tourist trap place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2011

There is always a large list of specials and the kitchen will make anything that is not on menu or specials, as long as they have the item. Which is always.
Then there is the boiled seafood and potatoes/corn, The BEST around!!!!
The gumbo is better than any in New Orleans.

“Best crawfish. Ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2011

Yes, the price of crawfish is high this year. So save your money at other places and come here for them. They are big, spicy, juicy, and simply the best. Don't forget the boiled corn and potatoes, either. The boiled shrimp and po-boys are also excellent but it's really all about the crawfish.
