We were traveling through the area and had been in the car for 5 hours. We wanted a place to be able to stretch our legs. We went to the Galleria to get some exercise. The Galleria is very well maintained and a nice place to spend a few hours. They have such a variety of stores and restaurants. I... More

This was our first time at this mall. It is huge. Pretty much any store you can think of is here. I was surprised that here were no Lindt or Godiva stores. The one of the drawbacks was the parking situation. You literally have to drive around to find a place to park. One of the nice things is that... More

I shop at the Galleria very often....huge mall...some people feel it is too big and that it takes too long to get from one end to the other plus it is two stories. It has all the major department stores..smaller stores..sports stores..restaurants..theatre....etc....parking lot is huge....weekends are a bit busier....highly recommend!

The Galleria was always a nice, clean mall with plenty of parking and easy highway access. However they have undergone an amazing transformation at the north end. The new restaurants look great, most with both mall and outside access. There is a wide choice of eating places, with valet parking, so you could show up here on a Saturday night... More

Haven't been for awhile. Amazing how many people were doing the pokei-mon game Found out that there were new stores and more to come. Stopped by the Apple Store to check on my I phone They were very helpful and understanding and patient. A joyful trip

I am from Canada and live an hour away from the border, so I come to the USA a few times a year to come shopping at this mall. It is a great mall with a wide variety of stores as well as restaurants and food.

DARN, Darn, darn. Galleria Mall itself is a magnet for international guests with an amazing array of shops and restaurants which would dazzle most. Unless unfortunately, THEY VISIT THE FOOD COURT ON A SATURDAY NIGHT. Mall - 5 stars, Food Court a dismal 1 star and that is for the restaurants. The condition of the large 200+ table central dining... More

You need hours to see all these shops. End up in one which sells feet massaging equipment. You can sit down and test the machines ( I didn`t buy one - far too expensive)

I am from Ohio, but I come here occasionally when visiting family. This mall is very pretty and has tons of stores...actually it's a little overwhelming. But I love grabbing a Starbucks and wandering around. Pretty much any store you'd want is here, with a variety that includes other areas of interest like sports, culinary, and electronics. Parking is a... More
