Did lunch with some friends. Live music with two very talented and delightful entertainers. Great view. Great food. Great service. Not overwhelming. Nice way to spend a rainy Canada day. Many thanks for the lovely experience.

“Excellent for both views and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

We had been to the Galley in the past on many occasions for their seafood but had been disappointed on our last visit when it was under new management and seemed to just serve Italian food and pizzas. It again changed hands and the new management has done a fantastic job on the menu. We recently took friends from Florida there for lunch who were in Halifax on a cruise . They couldn't say enough nice things about it and we were very happy that we had gone there instead of our normal stop at the Rope Loft (also good but not in the rain). Great meal, great service. Congratulations to all at The Galley!

“Superb food and a view that can't be beat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a seafood luncheon with an ocean view and this delivered on both counts! The staff was friendly , helpful and out-going. Interesting nautical touches added to the ambience. The chef prepares interesting and flavourful food. We had the lobster bisque and walnut goat cheese salad. Their homemade kettle crisps (potato) are also great with their classic beer - battered haddock . Every table has a fine view of the mooring field of the South Shore Marina and for fine days there is outdoor seating on the deck or patio. Priced reasonably

“Quality stem to stern”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

We ate there following a day of sailing in 25 to 30 kn winds so the warm welcome and great food was greatly appreciated. We had a table with a beautiful view on Mahone Bay and was served by a pleasant young lady who understood the menu. The food was great! I recommend this place.

“Nice Dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Our meal was fabulous and delicious. I could of stayed longer but was on a schedule. The next time I plan to go, I'll make sure there is no breeze since I'll be on the patio for a glass of wine or two with my partner.
