“Excellent restaurant - Highly Recommend!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

This is an excellent restaurant with a varied menu and wonderful service. There is nothing they do not do very well. Excellent swordfish, salmon, crab cakes, lamb...everything is wonderful. The chocolate lava cake is also a must!

“First class all the way!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

I can see why there are so many great reviews of this restaurant everywhere you look! We were just looking to hit several restaurants over the evening and have appetizers and cocktails. This was our first stop. We had the crab cakes and shrimp cocktail which were extremely well prepared! The long islands were among the best I've ever had!

Something unusual here...when you first walk in you see a 50" flat-panel with a live camera of the chefs in the kitchen preparing meals. I found that to be incredibly refreshing. After all, we wouldn't want to know what most commercial kitchens look like. This owner has the confidence in his kitchen staff to keep this live display going all the time. That says a lot about the quality of dining experience you are about to have.

The service was top-notch from start to finish. We will surely be back!

“Did Not Disappoint”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We were up in Morrow Bay for several days and we checked Tripadvisor for the best restaurants in the area. The Galley came up #1. I shared why we picked it with the hostess and she said that they always try to live up to expectations. Our server, Shawn, was very pleasant was helpful in both service and selections. We both had the fish--which was just perfect.

It is a good idea to call ahead because the Galley can be quite busy. We have no real caveats--but never hurts to share that you found them through Tripadvisor. I think people put their best foot forward when they know that they have a chance to shine.

Loved the swordfish and scallops. Great wine list and the view was perfect. Our waitress knew just what we wanted and when to leave us alone for a romantic dinner
