As another reviewer mentioned, don't let the somewhat downmarket tablecloths put you off. We had another fabulous lunch, with assistance of friendly waitress. Burgers are superb; homemade soups divine. Menu says the third-pound "burgers are made using Misty Isle beef - 100% free of antibiotics and feed hormones." The side salad is a half-size dinner salad, and tasty! Six intriguing... More

By all means try the clam chowder, Holy Cow it's good! Fish and chips too. And cheap. The service is really nice and friendly and the place is clean.

This unpretentious restaurant (with a bar too) has a thrift store ambience in terms of its decor, but don't let that fool you! Every meal is simply high quality and delicious. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. We only ate lunch and dinner here, but found every meal delicious, served promptly (even when swamped!), with excellent wait staff. Highly recommend!

In the off-season, breakfast on a Sunday leaves limited choices on Lopez Island. Finding The Galley was perfect! Great food, and a comfy local hangout. Welcome feeling to both locals and strangers alike.

The Galley has wonderful views of the Bay from the dining room. They serve good food and usually have great service. While the menu has a broad range, there are quite a few Mexican dishes. The salad bar is well-stocked. This is a favorite place for the locals to gather. The bar is separate from the dining area and is... More

Helping a friend move to Lopez, we were buried in boxes and no kitchen to make dinner in. Ate at the Galley restaurant. Being a "food snob", I did not expect much: but the meal was excellent and the waitress the most pleasant. Nothing too fancy, but good. Remember one is not dining in Seattle, and you will enjoy.

We watched sunset at Shark Reef Sanctuary, so it was after 8 when we made it back to the Lopez Village area and everything was closed. When we saw the 'open' sign at The Galley, we were relieved. It was about 8:15 and the restaurant area was closing at 8:30, so we were redirected the lounge area- which is a... More
