The Galley is in the heart of Morro Bay. The food & atmosphere are fantastic! The scallops and asparagus were amazing. An absolute must when visiting Morro Bay. Recommend a reservation!

The Galley is a pleasant but a tad overpriced restaurant in Morro Bay with a great view of the harbor. Watch the sea lions, otters and at rare times a shark or two. Service is attentive and the offered fish is ALWAYS fresh.

After a couple of hours of sightseeing on a warm, overcast day at Morro Bay, we dropped in to the Galley Seafood Grill and Bar for lunch. We were seated right away at a table with a view of the bay. Our server, Alyssa H., welcomed us and explained the day's specials. The salad special of the day was mixed... More

Our family has eaten at The Galley for close to 35 years and never has there been a bad meal or mediocre service. We almost always order "the catch of the day" and have never been disappointed. The chef is fantastic; Jennifer (our waitstaff person) was superb and the rest of the staff is also exceptional. Not to mention that... More

Amazing food, great service! Ordered the Rock Fish and the Scallops. Ate here last year when we visited and it was just as great! Very classy, would recommend to anyone. Worth the price.

My huge pet peeve with a lot of seafood restaurants is that they fry everything and there are no healthy choices; however I’m happy to report that’s not the case at The Galley. They have a nice selection of grilled fish entrees (called naked fish cause they are grilled without any sauce to let the true flavor of the fish... More

Thanks to a recommendation from our host at the Estero Inn, we had a wonderful dinner at the galley. Our steaks were melt in the mouth tender and prepared as requested. The salmon was the freshest we had had on the coast. I must say how delicious the green beans with almonds were! Yum! Treat yourself to superb food and... More
