The Galley opened for the season May 15th, 2014, so we had to come down from St Margaret's Bay the next day to sample the new menu. As expected, it was terrific. Thanks to Chef Jeff for new creative ideas and Holly for being such a friendly and enthusiastic server. We were able to enjoy the first nice day sitting on the deck overlooking the marina. The Galley is about 10 minutes outside Chester and the road sign is hard to notice, but a left turn off the highway down to the South Shore marina will get you to the best dockside dining around. No one touring the south shore of NS should pass up a meal at the Galley. Five stars!!!!

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

We visited the Galley Restaurant again this weekend and were once again very impressed with the quality of the food and the efficiency of the serving staff! Great atmosphere and the food was excellent. We would highly recommend giving this restaurant a try.

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!!
