I’ve been coming to the Galley on Mother’s Day and Easter for the best buffet around. Not anymore! At $28.95 I expected them to serve lamb like always, but no 😢. The lamb is what use to make them above all the others. I unfortunately...More

Very romantic dinner spot overlooking Portman Marina on Lake Hartwell. You experience an absolutely gorgeous sunset. They have a wide variety of food to choose from. Nice place for families, friends or couples.

We’ve been going to the Galy for 10 years now, it was our favorite place for special occasions. Unfortunately it had declined! It needs updating desperately, not very attractive with waterstained ceilings that sag. Also we were not impressed with the service we had early...More

Every time we go, it just feels like home. The staff, the management, and the food are all top notch. We enjoy the seafood, steaks, pasta, drinks and deserts! My only wish is I could bring my recliner and stay a while after dinner!

Many places do not allow sleeveless/tank tops. Not really appropriate but I can see where it could be. Health code issue too.
