Thank you to John and the rest of the Galley crew for making my wife's 50th one of the most special birthdays ever. My grand parents were frequent visitors as well as my parents, siblings and now me and my wife and children. Even though some things have changed over the years one thing remains unchanged, the amazing dinning experience.... More

Very lovely atmosphere at the Galley - busy but we were still well looked after. Nice touch to have half bottles of wine. The scallops were very tasty, as was the halibut. Finished off with the chocolate pudding which was delicious! Definitely worth a try. Great that there is a camera into the kitchen so you can see your food... More

Food was good, service was good. Restaurant very warm and moderately stuffy, as if A/c was broken during our visit. We ate the clam chowder, scallops (one was sandy), and salmon.

The scallops and prawns are divine. The wine list is plentiful and the ambience is friendly, comfortable and welcoming. Never managed a dessert as always too full, but I can highly recommend this restaurant

I had a scallops appetizer, the lobster tail dinner and both were melt-in-your mouth amazing. My family had the seared tuna and shrimp scampi with pasta and they were delicious as well. The atmosphere is elegant casual, on the water. And the service was great. I highly recommend it.

Set on the bar, there was a cctv monitor right in front so we could see the kitchen in action. Ordered a burger and scallops with fries - both were delicious.

The Galley has been a long standing restaurant on Morro Bay's Embarcadero. The dining room is cozy yet beautiful and classy sitting directly on the bay. The food is fresh and nicely prepared -- just enough different flavors to set it apart from the rest of the area. So, if you'd prefer waterfront dining with a great seafood menu, you'll... More
