The Galley chefs work with the finest seafood purveyors to obtain only the highest quality seafood from local waters and beyond. We purchase wild-caught fish from Morro Bay's local fishermen whenever possible.

I thought we saw a large party of at least 7 when we were there. I would think they could put a couple of tables together

We did not see any children in the restaurant when we visited. I would recommend a call to the restaurant to determine if there is a children's menu. This restaurant would not be my choice when dining with children.
