The Galley Hatch is a go to place for a bite to eat with friends. The food is consistently good. The service is excellent. It can be a little noisy.

Everything was very fresh. Seafood was impeccably fresh and perfectly cooked. My husband said his prime rib was one of the best he's ever had. This place will not disappoint.

Went to dinner on 4/20 and was looking forward to fried clams. They arrived at the table dark in color and I assumed this is how this restaurant cooked them. The batter was thick and overcooked obliterating the taste of the clam. I was very disappointed. When the waitress came over halfway through the meal, I asked her if the... More

Great variety on the menu. True New England feeling inside the restaurant. Several seating area options, but my favorite is by the fireplace. Try the feta dip my favorite item on the menu. Save room for dessert, you'll see these as you enter and won't be disappointed in anything you order. A perfect lunch is soup salad and dessert! Then... More

It was nice to see there are still real restaurants left not a chain. The place is clean, service was the best, large menu covering all aspects... More

Twelve bereaved but hungry first timers to this restaurant, in need of sustenance before the long trip home to Down East Maine. A quick phone call reserved our arrangements, although we needed none. Walked right in sat right down and five minutes later we had placed our orders--a reasonable amount of time passed leaving each of us with our thoughts... More

I hadn't been to the Galley Hatch for a long time, but another member of my party picked this destination. My son worked there in the early '80s and used to bring home the best NE clam chowder I had ever had. I was surprised to discover the chowder was almost as good as I remembered, seasoned a little differently,... More

Enjoy the restaurant, Galley hatch has been around for years. The restaurant has a good menu full of surf and turf entrees. My favorite is the filet mignon with the bernaise sauce, very good. Great deserts too.. My only complaint is that service can be slow in the warmer months May-October, my dinner for a party of 6 was 2+... More

I had not been to the Galley Hatch in years, but a friend suggested we meet there for lunch and I was quite pleasantly surprised. I had the haddock sandwich and my friend asked if she could have the garden salad but with chicken salad added on top. They were more than accommodating to create a dish that was not... More
