Breakfast was fast, good (French toast). Live music if you enjoy that but more cigarette smoke than we are used to. Saturday morning flea market in the parking lot was interesting in a nautical way- no surprise there.

Galley at the marina is a casual dining experience in open areas exposed to the elements. There is a nice bar area w/ bar stools and a few small tables for dining. I used the bar area and found it to be pleasant and less noisy as compared to the open seating area. I had a small lunch and the... More

The owner is a rude monster. Hates children, will sit you in the back corner if you show up with a family. Just a horrible person with no respect for family and customer's. Food not worth the abuse from her.

Great place to chill after a long day at work, or in my case hours traveled. I went to San Diego to surprise my great friend, that is her cool down place, know to many as her "office". Always sits in the same corner :-) The owner, a very nice lady, loves to go around to welcome her customers, nice... More

This was our first visit here. Four of us went there to hear Gary Seiler and the Coast Riders perform last Sunday. We ate on the patio (where the band played). Two of us had the Mediterranean Penne Pasta (with Chicken) and it was delicious. Portions were large (not ridiculously large, but no one goes home hungry). The Caesar salad... More

Patio sitting yes! And it's mostly okay but the wind blows through the patio. Everybody was wearing shirts (September), I seemed to be the only one freezing my as off. As soon as it got dark they turned on patio heaters. Food was good. We had burgers, sandwiches and a salad. Nothing special but it all tasted good. Our sever... More

The service is good. They have specials for dinner Monday thru Thursday priced really reasonably. My favorite is all you can eat fish and chips on Thursdays.The view from the deck is of the marina. Rock and roll band and dancing on weekend evenings. My friend loves the home made chips. Full bar service.

My chapter of the Harley Owners Group does a lunch ride every Sunday. This week we went to the Galley at the Marina. We had reserved a table in the Patio for about 30. Not only were the tables ready when we got there, but they had even partitioned off some parking places for us. Drink orders were taken imedoately... More

I stayed at the Chula Vista RV Resort and went to the Galley for dinner twice. The food was great on both occasions and they have an excellent beverage selection. I enjoy the outdoor seating overlooking the marina, particularly at sunset.

Location, location, location.....it is looking on to the marina, it is nice to eat outside. Prices are a little high, service is a little slow. Nice place to go for a leisurely time, food is mediocre to fairly decent. What makes it worth it is eating outside and rubbing elbows with the really relaxed "boat people" that frequent the place...
