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

We had a very nice lunch here during our visit to the Seaport. The New England clam chowder was delicious. There was both indoor and outdoor seating and the staff was very nice.

35 minutes on a Monday to wait for a hamburger which still wasn't made. Had to ask her for it. The line cook was great, too bad her line doesn't listen to her.

I ordered a fish sandwich, and that's what I got, barely. The filet was less than half the size of the bun. It was a bit overcooked, and I was quite disappointed. My friend ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and she said it was "good."...More
