Went there for early dinner. There were 3 of us and we all loved every bite of our food. And there was plenty of it. I got the fried scallops (about 10 of them?). I added the Wild Mushroom Risotto. Didn't eat it all, there was so much. Brought home some scallops also. My husband had Seared Scallops with Risotto... More

I have eaten here for over 25 years and I have never had an issue with their food or service. The Seafood is always fresh and well prepared. The place is mobbed during Lent. If you go aim to go, get there around 7. A lot of the regulars are older and they are in bed by then. They also... More

This is where I wanted to celebrate my birthday. My wife and I arrived during happy hour-$3 drafts and $5 glasses of... More

Gallos has been there forever and so has the decor ,HOWEVER the food has always been good very fresh and we have never had a bad seafood meal there . Personally that is all we have ever ordered so I Can not speak for anything else on the menu. If they upgraded the decor they would get more street credibility.... More

Gallos used to be known for great food at excellent prices. I guess with the higher rents on the Boulvard (As opposed to the little space on Frankford Avenue), they had to increase prices and reduce quality. Crabcakes had very odd flavor.

Lunch started with a perfectly made Manhattan. Our waitress pulled double duty as the bar tender. And she did a great job at both jobs. My uncle suggested the Seafood Chowder and now so do I. He also suggested the Manhattan. Here our paths split. I went for a steak. I had a blackened flounder fillet. We were both happy... More

I recently attended a funeral luncheon at Gallo's Seafood and was pretty impressed. As you might expect the menu is mainly seafood (very good selection of choices) but there are other options if seafood isn't your thing. Our server was friendly and handled the large group well, and several other staff helped out nicely. The ambience is a bit retro... More
