I went here with my boyfriend last Saturday night. The location of this restaurant was perfect walking distance from the parking lots behind Main Street. I heard from friends that this restaurant was very good. It didn't disappoint. For drinks I had an iced tea and my boyfriend had about four glasses of water. I had the calamari,yellow rice with...

Waitresses and waiters were speaking too loud right next to the tables where people were eating. Somebody who worked at the restaurant had a baby crying out loud and all of the workers were spending their time checking on every movement of the baby instead of checking on the customers that were waiting for refills and checks. They were speaking... More

This is a good place to eat. The steak sandwich was good. Bread might have been too much and too crunchy but the meal was satisfying. Next time I'll try the arroz con pollo.

Everytime I come here I feel like I'm on vacation. Great food, drinks and atmosphere. Love the sangria and music. Can get very busy due to popularity. Right on main street. When the weather is nice they open the French doors to main street and you can hear the music and see the crowd inside. Friendliest staff in town. Nice... More

My daughter has been to Gallo many times and took my husband there for dinner a few months back while I was away visiting family because I tend to be a fussy eater and he likes Spanish food. He came away raving about the food and said he thought I'd like it as it wasn't spicy (the way Mexican food... More

Visited Gallo on January 16th with my wife and in laws. Have been there several times previously. As usual the restaurant was busy and very lively. Waited about 20 minutes to be seated (they do not take reservations). Seated in the main dining room. Our server (Ivonne) was attentive and welcoming. Portions are large and prices reasonable. Patchogue had become... More

Menu has terrible variety. It all looks the same. Sometimes they throw an adjective in front of the menu selection and it doesn't even come close to explaining what the dish will be like. For example, there's something like "Gallo Steak" and "Gallo Tropical Steak." Lack of clarity in the menu, and seemingly a lack of variety is a real... More

Had dinner before driving back to NJ on a Friday evening. Good thing we got there before 6pm since the place filled up fast. The super sampler was a huge portion. Their special green sauce partnered well with the food. We shared a camper special, chicken, beef, pork rind, rice, beans and a egg - the portion was huge. We... More
