We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at The Galley to celebrate my birthday. It is on the water in Morro Bay, and it has an amazing close view of the Rock. We had reservations for 5, which worked well to see the early sunset in Winter. I would not risk going without reservation. There was a long line waiting for the... More

I love eating here with the wonderful view of Morro Rock and the bay. The service is super and the food is delicious. I have never had Scallops I enjoyed more! Simply wonderful!

Our dear friend Valerie came down from Oakland to visit us in Shell Beach. She wanted to go to a place with an Ocean View and found another place in Morro Bay. I originally wanted to take her to a Mexican venue in Los Osos, but it is closed on Mondays. Since I was not enchanted by her choice, I... More

My husband and I love spending our date night here the food is to die for the Anderson the owners are so kind and amazing. The view is breathtaking. The servers are so kind and drinks are kept full. If you have never eaten here I strongly suggest you try.

We have been coming here on our winter travels since it was recommended to us as Jack LaLanne's favorite restaurant in 2009. It is excellent in all respects. You are treated the same in travel weary jeans as in good clothes. Good dress casual is the regular attire, however. This is the tuna tartare with beet mashed potatoes and tempura... More

A mother-daughter weekend get away with dinner at The Galley was spectacular. Pan seared Scallops in a white blanc wine sauce was the best I have ever eaten. Served with grilled asparagus and wild rice. The Swordfish was to die for as well. To top the evening off I was served a Chocolate Lava cake with a scoop of vanilla... More

What outstanding dinner meals had by all. We had rockfish, a huge seafood salad and sea bass. All 4 meals were cooked to perfection, the service was impeccable, and the views were to die for. A fantastic way to end our Morro Bay vacation. Costs were reasonable, Rockfish was $26 which included 2 generous sides. I recommend reservations, it fills... More

Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed. This was our 2nd dinner at the Galley. The waitresses are sweet and helpful. We shared the calamari strips for an appetizer. There was plenty for 4 to share. For main dishes: two of us had the tuna, one shrimp scampi, and one sole. Mixed veggies, grilled asparagus, and rice pilaf rounded out our... More

A great place to enjoy fresh seafood and a great view of Morro Bay. Friendly people, great service and excellent seafood cuisine. I have eaten here several times and they have been very consistent in quality and presentation. Love the fish entree's of course, very flavorful and seasoned perfectly. Call on Friday and Saturday for reservations, they do get busy.... More
