I didn't get a fully meal there. We saw the dessert display and we had to try somethings. The apple tart was absolutely delicious. The prices are a bit high but it was really tasty

Loved the sushi! Great options. And we snuck in a wonderful dessert (flourless chocolate cake), too. Yummy.

When we asked our waitress at The Lobster Trap what she recommended for dessert, she said that her own restaurant didn't hold a candle to the desserts at CC Gallagher, we decided we should try it. Hands down the best choice of sinful desserts and coffees. They also offer regular faire, however, the dessert is the real reason to visit... More

Stopped into this restaurant for the first time and felt comfortable in their warm and artsy atmosphere. Enjoyed a bowl of Roasted Poblano & White Bean Soup which was very tasty and a side salad. The menu is quite eclectic with an Asian and Mediterranean flair. They also serve wine, beer and Sake. Will definitely visit again.

My husband and I are waiting to go on an excursion and decided to pop in for a coffee. I ordered the Island Joy. It tastes just like an Almond Joy bar, and definitely better than Starbucks or Dutch Bros. Starbucks is and always my Go To place, but this coffee is better! They have a menu of food, beers,...

My wife and I stopped into the little coffee shop and I have to say... No matter how much in a rush you are. STOP here!! The coffee is fantastic- service was unbelievable. To top that all off, the husband of the owner gave us a brief history of the place- it used to be a bank and they use... More

We ate at CC Gallagher's on Thurs., Sept. 29, 2016. The food and wine were really good and our waiter was great. We had a table on the patio in the front, with a nice view of the walkway and harbor. My husband and I shared tuna sushi as an appetizer. For entrees, I had a salad with grilled shrimp... More

The service was wonderful, the food was fresh, the drinks were delicious. I highly recommend the vegetarian goat cheese sushi. My boyfriend and I loved it so much that we have tried to recreate it at home. It's now a staple for us. Ours will never compare to CC Gallagher's, though. Also, the Tokyo Mules was incredible. We ate here... More

We only went for dessert this time, but have always enjoyed everything on the menu. The Fruit Tart was amazing as was the Creme Brulee Cheese Cake. Great coffee drinks and a really nice beer selection. Friendly staff as well.
