Galway Bay is a truly unique restaurant for the Grays Harbor area! It is one of my favorite stops when I drive out to the beach and somewhere I know I can count on for consistency. The restaurant itself it a whole lot bigger than one might realize, with multiple rooms and beer gardens off of the main dining area.... More

We stop in for dinner, drinks and even breakfast whenever we are in Ocean Shores. The staff is friendly and the food is very good. Great place to stop in on the weekends to grab a Jameson or a Guinness and catch some Irish music.

Dropped in around 11am on a weekday and had a delicious Irish breakfast with great service, good price, and unlimited coffee refills. Not sure what bread they use for the toast, but it was awesome.

My boyfriend and I went because of the trip advisor reviews. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. Food was mediocre at best. It was packed (sat nite), hot, busy, kids screaming, blah food. The waitress was friendly and efficient, but I would have rather gone somewhere else. I would possibly go back for lunch, but dinner here didn't cut... More

The food and drinks here are fabulous. It gets even better and better each time. The corned beef hash sandwhich was delicious. The sofa bread is simple but oh sooo good. Even has an attached import shop with interesting Irish gear.

There is a something a little trite about a genuine Irish Pub unless it is done right. William Gibbons does it so right others should come and take notes from him. All of the food is excellent, great selection of beer and Irish whisky, a good variety of music played either live or recorded. They organize a huge Celtic Music... More

Crab cakes were quite possibly the best I've ever had! Potato soup I was hoping would blow me away, it was ok. Maybe I just prefer my own. The sausage dinner (bangers & mash) was delicious. The sausage was a little different texture than one might expect. Unique atmosphere, worth going for a drink and the experience, and the crab... More

If you only eat at one place, this is a must on your list. They have a Celtic menu that you will never see anywhere else. The Irish-Scottish traditional atmosphere is absolutely A+. This month they sponsor the largest Irish Festival on the west coast, 5 days long, starting October 18. The whole area participates. The convention center has festivities... More

Well, it's all about atmosphere and good food with a definitive Irish bent. Go prepared for friendly service and filling, tasty food. It was our first visit, early on a Friday night in late September. The place was packed. Strongly suggest reservations for weekend nights. Additionally, there is music on Friday and Saturday nights (around 8pm) and, occasionally, other nights.... More

Places was busy when we went for dinner. Water bottles where already on the table and the water in them is room temperature. I like cold water to drink and no one offered any ice. The wait staff was very busy but you could see them working hard. We ordered the cheese plate which took approx. 40 minutes to appear... More
