This is the place for perfectly prepared lobster, a table overlooking the marina and bay, fresh drinks and breezes, impeccable service. Just a very short drive from Route 3 and well worth going out of your way.

Opted for an early dinner and found the restaurant very quiet with lots of empty tables.The dining room overlooks a marina and the harbour is a lovely backdrop for a seaside dinner.Our waitress was knowledgable about all the dishes and with just the correct amount of attentiveness she deserves top marks.I chose the buttermilk encrusted haddock and my partner had the evening special,pork loin in mushroom demo glacé.While my dinner was very good(7/10),the fish was a tad boring.The lemon curry sauce saved the dish.My broccoli and carrot serving was small.My dining companion had a huge serving of pork,thinly sliced and piled high.It had lots of flavour and was very moist.He rated his plate a 9/10. At $18 his entree was an excellent value as well.Desserts were both very good-fried cheesecake and semifredo. Overall with location,wait staff and quality and value of food the Galley on this night was 7.5/10.We will definitely drop by again.

I arranged a lunch for 30 professionals on June 11. The manager was very helpful and insured our needs were met.

The servers were great!
The food was very good.
The view is wonderful from the dining room and deck.

This was a first-time visit for me. The view was breathtaking!
Food was delicious...
A little pricey, but so worth it for lobster!
I have been living in Chester for near 2 years, and just discovered this gem!
Better signage and advertising may help.
