The restaurant is closed and up for sale it should be removed from trip advisor. The for sale sign in on the window and there is no sign out at the road

Went there with the family (10 members) the first thing that went wrong was that if I was told that if the group was more than 8 people that I was supposed to make a reservation......really? After that we were told that because the supervisor wasn't there that they were going to serve us.....me and my wife ordered shrimp mofongo.....ohhhh... More

You are very mistaken. Gallaways is not open for the 2015 season. Check your bill. You have given a review to a restaurant you did not visit. The only restaurants open on GM are Sailor's Landing and Harbour Grill. I expect you may have visited one of them?? More

Nice option for dining on Grand Manan...located directly next to the Surfside Motel. Get there early in summer months as it gets very crowded. It is definitely worth the wait. Food is very good and service is as well. Homemade chowder and fresh haddock are the best choices. Nice views of Stanley Beach. Perfect for families with children...young and old... More

My family and I have been to this restaurant many times over the past few years. Always a good meal for a good price, but one day in particular stood out. August 31, 2014 was our last night on the island. We decides to go out for the night. Upon arriving we were informed that there would be a wait... More

Don't expect upscale fancy decor or fine wines. The friendly cheerful service is a bit slow but the food is what makes this place. It is down home cooking and amazing! It's located behind the Surfside Motel right on the beach with a view of the harbour. When we first entered it looked a little rough and we wondered what... More

We stopped by this spot for lunch and were not disappointed. There was so much food we couldn't finish it all. There is something for everyone whether you like seafood or something more "pub style". The prices were reasonable and the service was fast. They are only open from noon to 8pm so don't expect breakfast or a late supper.

Food was fine, yummy sweet potato fries. The service was friendly and prompt. They do not serve alcohol anymore and they close rather early, but this is a sleepy island.

We have been to this restaurant on both of our trips to the island. The food is very good. We had a mix of seafood dishes and children's fare. The portions are very good and the service is also very good. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone travelling to Grand Manan.

So I won't rave about this spot as the food was decent. Being a Maritimer, I've bought many seafood platters in my day, and for $30, I am sure I received more elsewhere. You won't find the locals knocking down the door as the pricing is certainly a little more towards tourist. The lack of quantity is not made up... More

Thank you so much for your review of Gallaways Restaurant on Grand Manan. Your comments are very much appreciated. We encourage reviews and are open to suggestions...my theory is that if there is a problem and I don't know it...I cannot fix it. Reviews are extremely helpful. Thanks again. More
