What fun atmosphere! Wish the food was better. Drinks were decent but the lobster was small and stuffed with stuffing to hide the actual amount of the lobster. Staff was friendly enough, thank you!! We didn't complain about the cleanliness, though we were within the right. WARNING- It might be better to go all the way back to your hotel if you need to use the bathroom.

Good food, good decor and details, friendly service. Not as fast as I liked, since people sat after us got their food before us, but still tolerable.

I've given this place a chance on more than one occasion, take my advice: eat the 60 bucks instead. The food will be better and you wont have to tip a rude waitress. The food is like something from a school cafeteria and the prices are over inflated. Keep walking and dont be fooled by all the decor or the smoker out front.

During a day trip to Catalina, a friend suggested El Galleon. The food was good, service quick, and the environment fun, as would be expected from a Catalina establishment. I enjoyed looking at all the pictures of old Catalina. I'd go back!

You must try the fried zucchini with two dipping sauces!
