I love karaoke, and we were told this place had it. We called to make a reservation but they did not take them. The young lady on the phone, however, told us there would be no problem finding a table at 8 pm. We arrived...More

We came in to grab a quick bite and enjoyed a Caesar salad and a pizza. Both were great. The service was spot on and the view sitting outside was nice. I enjoyed the beer selection. And my wife liked the mudslide cocktail.

We had dinner here one night, I was hungry but wife wasn't. I had a steak that had to be sent back to be cooked longer. She had a salad with chicken and was happy.

If you don't do anything but drink, here is the place with a classic look and bar - go there. We went in for cocktails and it hit the spot.

From appearance and decor, did not expect much, however, food was very good as was the service. Fish and chips very tasty, shrimp cocktail, nice large shrimp stacked high. Very enjoyable lunch and price was reasonable.

For years and years El Galleon was the dinner choice of my parents. Visiting it twice recently, I re-discovered how excellent the food and service was. Their twilight dinners are excellent. They have a full-bar, well-stocked. It was also child-friendly.
