When in Cabo Rojo you must make it a point to stop at Galloway's for food, drink and great sunsets. We always make it a stop when we are in Puerto Rico. You might be able to persuade chef Gregory to make you one of...his favorite juicy burgers complete with bacon, cheese and topped with onion rings.More

Beautiful sunsets and great food. What could be better! Right on the water. Hamburger and fish sandwich with homemade fries were a great end to a beach day. We has a great time chatting with the owner Wanda. We wish her much continued success in...the future. Shannon and Tammy from MN, USA.More

Excellent experience. From the guy in charge of security at the parking, to everyone in the service staff. Good food. Pretty view of the bay at the terrace.

Went to have a nice relaxed dinner. I had not been back since before the hurricane. Pre-Hurricane Maria, this was one if the my favorite eating/drinking/relax places in Cabo Rojo. NOT ANYMORE. AVOID. Looks like the quality blew away with the storm. Chicken wings were...breaded - Popeyes style ! and were basically tasteless. Fast food level. Actually Popeyes chicken wings are better and alot cheaper. My wife's Chillo Fillet was "breaded" lol. How can you bread such a quality fish fillet. You are on the water for god's sake. Fish should be as fresh and unprocessed as possible. Needless to say, it also was tasteless. Zero seasoning. Well actually it did taste like burnt cooking oil because to top it off it was fried versus pan-cooked or grilled. Seems like everything now just gets thrown into the good old fryer ! Prices are San Juan resort level for basically fast food quality fare. The drink was a cool-aid in my case. I did not order a second drink. My wifes first drink was good but another person prepared her second drink and it was bad. The menu is limited unlike before the hurricane. Seems like a tourist trap now. Will not go back.More

I've lived in Puerto Rico now for 20 years, and have eaten at Galloways several times over the years. However, they had been closed recently for an extended period, especially after hurricane Maria. So...when visiting Boquerón recently and noticed they were open, I decided to...drop in for dinner. I ordered "mofongo con camarones", as they apparently no longer had that dish with conch as an option (my favorite). Having had mofongo there in years past, I was expecting much the same as before. But, I was brought a very small (by local standards) serving with a "salsa criolla" that was very bland. The price was well over $20, which at any other seafood restaurant a much larger portion (and tastier) serving of this dish would average around $14-16. Definitely not the same restaurant as before, and will no longer bother stopping by.More

Galloways's is an beach front restaurant that serves sea food as well as typical food. We suggest to seat on the front seats due to the mosquitoes. Food is ok nothing great and the service was very regular.More

If you come to Galloway’s, do not expect the service of a fast food restaurant. You are here to enjoy the view and the food made to order!!! In this case slow food is great food! We ordered chicken wings and they were the most...delicious, moist and crispy! And you could tell their were just breaded to order, no frozen stuff here!! The dipping sauces were also fresh and delicious. For the main entree, we had fresh mero, fried whole and mofongo... divine! Everything was super fresh and made to order. We stayed a while, having some Medalla (local light beer) and enjoying the view!!!More

We visited here after a recommendation from a local bartender and it was definitely the right choice, we had the fried fish and steak and both were amazing. They also offer bread with dipping oil and herbs that reminded me of home which is nice.

We were there for lunch. I had a hamburger, my husband had a chicken sandwich and my son had chicken tenders. I was very comfortable with the menu and felt that I had several "safe" choices and didn't have to step outside... More
