My favorite thing to eat here is the buttermilk haddock. For dessert they have really good fried cheesecake.

“Best meal in Nova Scotia”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

With everything closed in Mahone Bay on Saturday night travelled 20 minutes to the Galley and had a meal that was the best we had during our 17 day trip in Nova scotia Cape Breton. Lobster poutine was amazing a must order!!

“Delicious Baked Pierogies!”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

We decided to pick up some food from the Galley on our way to Peggy's Cove.
We tried the following:
Baked Pierogies - finished with crisp bacon, jack and cheddar cheese, sour cream and scallions. These were absolutely scrumptious .
Lobster Roll - a mixture of lobster,celery & mayonnaise, with a touch of dill in a warm Vienna loaf , which was delicious.
Service was quick and the ambience was lovely , especially the outdoor seating overlooking chester basin and the docks.

“Highlight of our trip!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

My wife, I and our friends have traveled and dined extensively around the world. The Galley Restaurant is quite possibly one of the finest meals we have enjoyed anywhere. We were pleasantly surprised, to be honest we were all shocked by our amazing meals. Staff were warm, friendly and bubbly. The food..oh the food! Lobster Poutine, pasta's, Tuna, Salmon were just divine!!! The view from the restaurant overlooking the bay was perfect. The Chef/owner is talented and humble, a great combination. If you live anywhere near this restaurant, or within a two hour drive, our advice is GO! GO & enjoy as often as you possibly can. We wish you continued success & look forward to our next dining experience. Thank you for doing an excellent job!
