We both had fish and salad (salad substitute for "chips" and no additional cost). Both fish and salad, very fresh. Warm and fresh made rolls too! Great view of bay from any seat and fairly small restaurant.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Galley located right on the bay. Hotel recommended and we were not disappointed. Also several customers leaving as we arrived said food was worth the wait. Steak , lobster, shrimp- everyone said food was great. Also excellent desserts. Suggest reservations as several customers were told it would be 1 hr or so wait time.

The Gallery Seafood Grill & Bar is a wonderful place for dinner. The menu selection was outstanding and reasonability priced. The servers were very attentive. The clam chowder was amazingly good. We had window seats a watched sea lions and sea otters cavorting in bay.

We made reservations in advance before we arrived in Morro Bay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The table was great, right by the window, the sun was setting, Morro Rock looming in the distance. The food was excellent. Oysters Rockefeller was different than anything I have had before. Delish. I would recommend the seared Ahi Tuna, it was... More

This informal appearing restaurant packs a big surprise with its amazingly delectable foods! Seafood is fresh (and feels like it's plucked from the water right outside the restaurant) and service is wonderful. Big thumbs up!

Thoroughly enjoyed the food and the wine served up by our waitress Sabrina ( who was excellent by the way and very personable) but the food served up, although nice, was not five star! Would go back however and try something different.

Reservations are needed for this great place. We had a large group and the attentive staff handled the challenge in stride. All eight of us were very happy with our meals. The blackened rockfish and the salmon seemed to be standouts however. The volcano cake was outstanding.

After reading other Trip Advisor reviews decided to order the scallops. I was not disappointed. They were large, succulent and perfectly cooked. The staff was friendly and we got served quickly. No complaints!
