“Worth the wait if you do not have reservations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We visited due to tripadvisor reviews and it was fabulous. Quaint small restaurant just on the waterfront with good views. Easy parking. Superb food, and service. Everything was just right or beyond expectations. Great wine list with fab locals.

“Watch the seals and brown pelicans as you dine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

The Galley was recommended by Jeff Anderson, the owner of the Anderson Inn, which forms part of the building with the Galley overlooking the Bay. The restaurant is sub-let from the Inn but the recommendation was good. The Galley was full and booking was required; Jeff smoothed the way for our late booking. We arrived slightly early and were allocated an interim table for a drink and then moved to the best table overlooking the Bay. We ate white sea bass and Hawaiin Ahi and watched the seals play and the brown pelicans chase a fishing boat. It was great fun and really unexpected. We shared a starter, had the two entrees above and a good bottle of local "Not Oaked" chardonnay recommended by the waiter and the total was $118 (~£74). I don't know whether this is the best place in town, but we had a great time.

“Birthday Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

For my 50th birthday, my friends planned a dinner date at the Galley. We arrived just before sunset and with the stunning view of the bay and Morro Rock, it was just beautiful. My friends had made reservations in advance and the owners even put my name and a birthday wish ON THE MENU! How special! I ordered steamed clams for an appetizer and Sea Bass for dinner. The clams were very tasty but took quite a long time to arrive. The Sea Bass was also very fresh and good but took a while, too. It came 'naked' and you choose from either a creamy dill sauce or a mango salsa to top it off. It was also coupled with garlic mashed potatoes & asparagus. The potatoes were a little cool & a little bland and sadly my asparagus was not cooked enough. My husband said his filet was "really tasty." The creme brulee was very nice and creamy and my friend's chocolate lava cake was VERY rich and chocolaty. All in all, the evening was special with the personalized touch from the owners, the view was fabulous but the food took a while and there were some hits and misses.
