Great view, peaceful quiet dining, fantastic food, varied menu, stellar servers! The only bad thing is it located a little off the beaten path but well worth the short trip.

We ate at the Galley last night. Have always had great meals, last night was no exception. I ordered the appetizer special Fried Green Tomatoes and entree was the Steak and Lobster Tail. They were all cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the Chicken Parmesan and loved it. Hats off to the chef!

Always a treat to dine here. Coming by boat makes it even more fun. Mother's day and Easter they serve an outstanding buffet,but make reservations early they fill up fast.

Wife and i stopped in for dinner. Dinner was excellent, her order and mine were very good. She had caprese and a cheese ravioli with scallop and lobster. Hers was delicious(she shared). The caprese was perfect. I had crab stuffed mushrooms and tenderloin with shrimp. The only negative comments I have are that my shrimp were not hot when served... More

We shared a very nice Christmas dinner with our fellow brothers and sisters at the Galley in Anderson. The food was prepared and presented perfectly. If you want a location that has excellent food this is the place to go, just make sure you get clarification of all points up front as well as a contract.

This restaurant is on the upscale side. Very good view of Lake Hartwell with good food and service. The menu is on the pricey side but very good.

In my opinion The Galley is one of Anderson's best restaurants. The food is consistently good. I would recommend calling ahead and reserving a table with a lakeview. My experience has always been better with week nights. Sometimes weekend are busy with larger groups and the service isn't as good. Some of the menu items are a little over priced... More
