“Best in Morro Bay - fresh seafood the way it should be”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

What a great two nights of dining we had at Galley while staying at Andersons. Very evident that the staff is one of the most well trained I've ever encountered. Great atmosphere (though very loud), but everyone goes the extra mile to serve. Food is spectacular- with the emphasis on simple preparations on the fresh fish, right off the boat. Gluten-free heaven for those who need such things. A mix of romantic and family friendly- incredibly. Best of all, the Wine List is THE most reasonably priced list I have ever seen in a fine dining establishment. Modest bottles were literally a couple bucks over retail. Incredible. Great bar as well. Best in Morro Bay by far!

The waitress was so nice to me, I felt so welcomed, and the food was pretty good. The ambiance was terrific. The restaurant overlooks the bay.

For a small town, this restaurant is surprisingly world class. Excellent sauces, wine list, and variety of choice. High recommend.

“Best location in town and food to match”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

The Galley has the prime location on the water looking out at Morro Rock. Get a window table or booth at sunset, both will have a great view. Nice bar area if you want something quick and casual. Good variety of seafood and some specials. Could tell the food was prepared with care and everything was above average to excellent. What I mean is there's a chef in back rather than simply a cook. Maitre d' was helpful and on top of everything.

“Everything was super”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We were celebrating our anniversary with friends, and chose the Galley for dinner. We loved everything about the Galley. We had told them that were were celebrating our anniversary, and they went out of their way to make it perfect. I had the scallops and my husband had the halibut, and both were cooked to perfection. We arrived just before sunset, and were able to watch the sun go down from the deck outside while our friends ordered champagne...Not that we needed to go out to the deck, because our table had a gorgeous view. The great food and lovely setting would have been enough to make the evening special, but the Galley capped it off with a personalized menu wishing us a happy anniversay, which the entire staff signed and presented to us when we left. We loved every minute of our time at the Galley, and will be having dinner there the next time we are in Morro Bay!
