I expected a lot from Galyn's. My parents visited 2 months ago, and said it was the best food on their trip. I'm wondering if they ate at McDonald's for every other meal. I ordered twin lobster tails. It came with a brown rice and green beans. My husband ordered the strip steak with potatoes and green beans. There was... More

We had a great meal here. Good options for kids, fast service, and great location near the water. A more formal atmosphere than some other restaurants, but prices still reasonable.

We were visiting family, and we had been to Galyn's a few years ago for their Thanksgiving feast dinner. We had the potato skins for an appetizer. My wife had fish for her entree, and I had the Lazyman's lobster. Both were delicious. The apple/blueberry crisp for dessert just topped everything off!

Bartender Steve was very helpful and the blueberry sangria delicious. Our waiter was attentive. Great seafood stew which had lobster, mussels, shrimp and awesome scallops. Try the Indian pudding-unique.

We picked this place based on location mostly. Little did we know that they had a back room upstairs with no view and this is where they chose to seat us. The front of the restaurant has a fabulous water view. The clam chowder was horrible and I went back and forth about sending it back. The Lobster Linguini was... More

It was a nice surprise to find that the service and quality of our meal was excellent. The street is teaming with non stop crowds and the block is cluttered with endless gift shops, at a breakneck pace. We found the staff and preparation of food to be of excellent quality. I highly recommend dining here
