This is our favorite restaurant in Morro Bay. The location is great with a glassed-in patio. We had really great service. (Thank you Graham!) We enjoyed the freshness & flavors of the menu options we ordered. Both our blackened king salmon & blackened halibut were...the stars and were cooked perfectly. We would definitely visit again & recommend.More

Delighted to find this restaurant during our first trip to Morro Bay. The Blackened Halibut was a special of the evening and was superb, as were the Scallops. Wife had local King Salmon on both visits and was cooked perfectly, served with a delicious Mango...puree. Tuna Tartar appetizer presentation was awesome and delicious. Great service from MacKenzie and Tania. Seating on an outside patio with a view of the bay and some harbor seals. Don't miss this place.More

We had a girl's birthday trip and celebrated here on a Sunday afternoon. Every thing was delicious and the 8 of us enjoyed our meals. I had fish and chips that was very crisp and tasty. Others enjoyed the steamed clams, clam chowder, lobster roll,...vegan pasta, mussels, and crab cakes. Dessert was a lovely creme brulee. The views were great and the staff awesome! We would definitely come back.More

Ate outdoors and had a beautiful view of the bay and Morro Rock. The hit for me was their Dungeness Crab Cakes. Very fresh and full of crab. The fish and chips were at best average. Nothing special though the accompanying fries were tasty...thin and...crisp. The price for the crab cakes was great...though the remainder of the menu seemed on the high side. Maybe the view justified the prices. I would definitely ask the waitperson which selections were fresh fish and not frozen...More

This is our second visit to The Galley, and it definitely will NOT be our last! We had a wonderful table with a perfect view, and enjoyed our time during the limited seating mandate by the Government. Lucky for us to have this experience during...this week. Unfortunately, all restaurants were closed to dining following our week along the Central Coast. The fried calamari was excellent. A bottle of Tolosa Chardonnay added to our experience, and a bowl of clam chowder which was super good hit the spot.More

When I was planning to go for Morro Bay, my friend recommended me to go Galley Seafood Grill at-least once for dinner. We really loved this place. Excellent staff, views, food.

Decided to check out this restaurant because of it's rating on Trip Advisor but when we arrived we realized that we had eaten here with my mom many years ago (she's been gone for six years so probably at least 10 years ago). The food...back then was excellent and the food today was equally as good. We had a variety of items from the shrimp cocktail to the double pork chop special to the scallops and more. Everything was well prepared and we would all be happy to order the same thing again. Will definitely remember this restaurant for the next time we are visiting Morro Bay.More
