The Galley is a neighborhood seafood restaurant at it's finest. The boiled crawfish, shrimp & crabs are all #1's or best available local product. They are seasoned well and cooked to perfection and not over cooked. The pricing tends to be a little on the high side but you get what you pay for. Their Italian salad with olives is... More

Excellent and fresh seafood. Good cooks & clean. Never smelly like some seafood joints. Get there early as wait can get long but you can sit outside with a beer.

My dad and I stopped in here for lunch. I was expecting fireworks but instead I got a big disappointment. We got here at around 1 and the place had a good crowd. At first we were seated inside, but had to move to the outdoor patio because it was freezing cold inside- not a huge deal. We both ordered... More

Our customers picked this location because they are from the area and being from the Midwest I couldn't have been happier! For appetizers we ordered the coconut shrimp, raw and grilled oysters. Coconut shrimp is not like you get from Applebees it is actually nice size shrimp with a light coating and it is cooked perfectly. The raw oysters were... More

No fancy creations, just old style seafood. Relaxed atmosphere which was nice on a rainy afternoon. If they have it try the fried Oyster blt. Shrimp and grits is awesome too.

Absolutely delicious food. We all ordered different dishes and each one was tasty!! The remoulade salad dressing was incredible. The hush puppies and crab cakes were divine.

My wife and I met my sister and brother-in-law at the Galley had some oysters and one of the largest Bloody Mary's we have ever been served. Crawfish were in season and they were delicious.......worth the trip!

I was craving po boy of some sort and decided to try this place out. Not only was the cashier rude, but she took my order to go when I wanted to dine in. Sure it was a Sunday mid afternoon but it wasn't that busy. Then when I noticed they seated a caucasian couple over a black couple which... More
