“pleasurable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

my past dining experiences at this restaurant seem to have imnproved with every visit over the past 10 years. my only complaint to date are the honest mistakes made when preparing the bill. The food is exceptional but not for the hungry traveller. All else is acceptable and does make the trip to this restaurant worthwhile.

“time machine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I had not been to the Galley Hatch since the 1990's and when I visited this past Friday night not one thing had changed. I had a steak and cheese with peppers and it was outstanding. My boyfriend had the fried oysters and found the entree to be pretty blah. Our service was pretty good but the decor really needs a makeover. I felt like the same dirt that was on my shoes 20 years ago was still on the carpet

“Lost focus”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

The galley Hatch is a good looking restaurant with a newly addition with a bakery/coffee & gift shop, It has a nice area to relax with comfy chairs where you can read a paper watch the news and enjoy a cup of coffee.
The times that i have eaten dinner their I've been disappointed with the food and the service wasn't the best. If they payed as much attention to the food and service then this could be a place i would want to go to more.

“Unfriendly staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Went there quite awhile ago with my husband. The bartender made not attempt at chit chat with any of the customers at the bar. She stood behind the bar with her arms folded staring off into space most of the time. Very disappointing. Anyone that has ever tended bar knows that you need to talk with your customers, whether they are regulars or not. It's part of the business. If you can't do that, then you should look for a new line of work.

“Decent food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Standard American fare, large varied selection, plus a decent bakery. Food is ok, not bad but nothing to rave about either.
