Years ago, we used to say there were no good restaurants in Galesville, but last Saturday surprised us in a really good way. Tired after a day of sailing, we were too lazy to find a place further than the beginning of our pier. We split the blue fish appetizer, perfectly smoked fish with a creamy horseradish sauce, delicious pickled red onions, on fresh, soft bread. Two crab cakes followed, almost 100% crab meat, and generous in size. We also shared the seafood linguini, which was perfectly cooked, and smothered with crab. And all was quite affordable.
Other high points: Our waiter was friendly and attentive, the musicians, a half-Kareoke, half synthesizer group of two, were pleasing, and not so loud to drown out conversation, and we were seated in the bar.
A few things could use improvement: while the tartar sauce served with the crab cakes tasted fine, it had clearly been sitting out and had a sheen on the top. I have a "thing" against salads I have to toss myself, and at least the default salad serving mode was to provide the dressing on the side. I think next time, and there WILL be a next time here, I will ask if they can possibly toss the salad in the kitchen for me. Those two things seemed just a little industrial, but I still could not complain about the taste.
We were too full for dessert, so I can't report on that.
