I have eaten at The Galley at both my visits to Mystic Seaport. Out of the four restaurants on the Seaport grounds it is both the cheapest and the easiest to squeeze into an activity-packed day. The food is a combination of your typical museum...More

There were only 2 places really to have a proper sit-down meal at the Seaport so we opted for here. Quick service despite being the height of the lunch service. It's mainly fast food and fried stuff and seafood abounds. Tons of seating inside and...More

The food was decent, service was fast, and it was a reasonable price. I really enjoyed the fried clams and my kids gobbled down the hot dogs. No complaints and very convenient when spending the day at the Seaport.

As other reviewers have said, this restaurant is inside the attraction, so one needs to pay admission to get here. Compared with other restaurants with a captive clientele, the Galley is reasonably priced, gives good service, and has quite to very good food. We were...More

Stopped here for lunch when visiting the museum. The clam chowder was particularly good.....thick, creamy, plenty of clam chunks, nice flavor. The shrimp basket was particularly bad.....more batter than shrimp, over cooked, disappointing, probably the worst we have ever had. The facility is quite large...More
