We like The Galley for both its setting and its food. We have always been treated great there and always enjoyed our menus selections.

I really enjoy this restaurant for its ambiance and the food in general is good my favorite is the prime rib sandwich. However, not so good on fish dishes. I have been very disappointed on at least three occasions with fish dishes. The staff is friendly and the bar crowd is very sociable. Big complaint is that they are not... More

Enjoyable, fine dining on the shore of Lake Hartwell. Great sunsets and, of course, many large yachts resting in their slips to make your dinner fly by with the many views.

Not worth the price and definetly not fine dining. Pass on The Galley. Many people around us were unhappy with the food and... More

I have been here several times. Mostly due to the convenience by boat. My biggest complaint is inconsistency of food and staff. There is a lot of turnover so most of the staff doesn't get enough experience. The management does not handle mistakes made by the staff adequately in my opinion.

We visit this restaurant frequently love the food, the view and the service. Our visit yesterday was very good and our server, Katelyn, was excellent. We especially appreciate that most entrees come with a salad and they don't nickel and dime you for a loaded potato like most places have started doing.

This is a gem on the lake. Great seafood or meat that you can access by boat. I love going here with guests visiting the lake.

We have eaten here on and off over the years. For whatever reason, our service has been terrible lately. We travel and eat out a lot but don't expect a lot. When we have to ask over 3 times for drinks then something is wrong. Our server was NOT ready to be on her own and we have found this... More
