“Great seafood!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

My husband and I went there a few months ago....it is 5 minutes from our home. This is not our first visit.
If you like seafood, you will love this restaurant. It has great atmosphere and the food is excellent. They have lunch specials everyday at a really reasonable price.
Come hungry.........
I guarantee you will be back.

“Not just great seafood ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Took wife here as she loves seafood and thought we'd go out of our way and give it a try. What a fabulous surprise. The atmosphere is very nice but not for a romantic night out. We started by splitting a coconut shrimp appetizer, which was very good. Wife had the roasted Canadiens salmon with a honey soy glaze, garlic mashed and asparagus. Raved about how good it was. I had an 8oz filet with shrimp scampi and the steak was perfectly good and fork tender. Also came with garlic mashed and asparagus .. Delicious. Finished first visit by splitting and terrific apple cobbler. To ensure first visit wasn't a fluke, took wife and mom back for another visit. Wife got crab cakes... All crab, no filler! Mom went with a chicken and lump crab sautéed ... She talked about how wonderful it was all the way home. I again had the steak/scampi combo and it was just as good as the first time. This time I added a fried eggplant side ... It was wonderful. We ended the meal with a cobbler and a huge strawberry shortcake for two. We now have a new go-to seafood restaurant and are looking to take some friends there in the future.

“A dependable restaurant with a varied menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Gallo's is a good restaurant that offers diners a wide selection of entrees to suit just about anyone's taste. The seafood is good and the service very good. The atmosphere is nice with booth and table seating available. The restaurant is locally popular and has a steady group of loyal customers. Noise levels are fairly low which enables enjoyable table conversation.

“Great Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Gallo's has amazing seafood dinners. Every time we go, we are never disappointed. The staff is always friendly and the food is always great. You have to love a place that puts fresh oyster crackers out with some amazing Zayda's horseradish. The desserts are also amazing as well.

“Best CrabCakes not at the Shore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Want good crabcakes but don't want to drive all the way down the shore? Go to Gallo's. I have gone twice and both times they were consistently excellent. It's a little tricky to cross the boulevard but it's worth the trip.
