“Best part of our weekend”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We really enjoyed our dinner at Galyn's. We were seated at a table upstairs. (7:30 reservation)The atmosphere was quiet, with nice music, classy. Most people were dressed business casual. They served very nice bread with oil, and dinners start with a small tasty salad. I had the Lobster Fettuccini, and my husband had the Prime Rib. Even though he ordered the smallest serving, it was a huge piece of meat, cooked as requested. My dish was very tasty, and more than I could eat ( but I did eat all of the lobster!) Our waitress was very nice, and we enjoyed the house Pinot Grigio.

“eat at restaurants away from downtown.”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Just OK. Lobter was tough and pasta was undercooked. The lobster chowder was the only saving grace. Tourist trap restaurant.

“View service menu food”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

The view from the porch is +++. Menu has a great selection and the food was quite good. View overlooks the harbor, islands, point park and people watching.

“Very good dinner”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Had a very satisfying meal with the in-laws and 2 teenage girls. Everyone enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was lively. They kept apologizing for the noise but it was no problem.
