Decided to try this place based on reviews. Had great fish and chips. Fresh Pacific cod. Like having fish steaks. We arrived after dark, so we couldn't enjoy the views of the estuary but could hear the seals. Do call ahead. It's not a large place and if they are busy, there might be a wait. The food was so...

We had a variety of great seafood at this fine restaurant (which is price accordingly). I had delicious shrimp scampi with asparagus and wild rice pilaf. The service was excellent. It probably has a good view but we were there after dark.

We had a very pleasant dinner for two. The oysters were a great way to start and were very fresh. The bread was also good. We had sea bass and sole dinners. All well prepared. Before and after we walked on the boardwalk and were serenaded by sea lions.

My husband and I had dinner here twice during a three-day visit in Morro Bay and both times had excellent dinners. Reservations are taken carefully so that tables are indeed ready at the appointed time. Service was very good both times. Dinners started with warm crusty rolls -- always a good sign! Our food was fresh, well-prepared and delicious. There... More

One of the best restaurants on the harbour with great views of the fishing fleet. Unfortunately we were there out of season and there was little to see at night. There seem to be specials each night and the food is well served, hot and tasty. Lots of choice of wines by the bottle and glass

Visiting Moro Bay, we asked our hotel receptionist to suggest the best seafood restaurant in the area. She immediately said Galley. She qualified her suggestion with a "better make reservations because it fills up very quickly". Getting into our room, we called and requested a 5:15 for that evening. We were told to be on time because their reservation bookings... More

We both had fish and salad (salad substitute for "chips" and no additional cost). Both fish and salad, very fresh. Warm and fresh made rolls too! Great view of bay from any seat and fairly small restaurant.
