Some of the best fish and seafood we’ve enjoyed in California - really memorable, freshly caught and delicious. I can recommend the clams for starters and the rockfish for main 😋

I love to go to the Galley and have dinner at the bar with friends. It's casual and the you do not need a reservation. I usually get one of the salads with grilled chicken or ahi...always great quality and friendly people.

We read all the reviews that said this is the best seafood restaurant in Morro Bay, and I agree. We ate at the Galley recently and the scallops were excellent. The other dish was excellent as well, nice wine selection and great views.

We had lunch here on Sunday, the view of the bay was amazing. It was very busy so I was glad we had made reservations. The food and service were very good. It was just a little long in getting our food served.

You think that they could do that, but they said NO, not for that time of day, they said they were too busy to put tables together. So guess I won't be visiting the Galley any time soon.

We did not see any children in the restaurant when we visited. I would recommend a call to the restaurant to determine if there is a children's menu. This restaurant would not be my choice when dining with children.
