Our camping group was staying at the RV park next to the marina and it was suggested that we have dinner at the restaurant. The dinner special was "all-you-can-eat" fish and chips. Though the fish looked great,I chose the Seafood Pasta and IT WAS SUPERB! Shrimp, lobster,cod,clam,cream sauce over fettuccine. Prices were reasonable and the view of the sunset over the marina not to be missed.

Nice restaurant that was close by our hotel. Stress free driving. Relaxing fun of food and atmosphere. Get the combo starter.

We met friends for dinner on a Saturday. It's always busy when there is live music so reservations are a must if you want to be on the patio with the band. This is a VERY fun place with room to dance. The patio is shaded, protected from wind, and heated when needed. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. The drinks are great! Food is prepared OK, but not high quality to start with, so I think the staff does the best they can. Just order the burger, which is consistently good. I've tried coconut shrimp, fried zucchini, beef kabob, pasta and tacos, all ho-hum. One other complaint, even with a reservation on the patio you might have to sit elsewhere.

I had a boat in this harbor for 2 years and used to frequent the Galley at the Marina.
Good food and good customer service is what makes a restaurant great. This restaurant no longer has neither. I no longer go there.
The manager is extremely rude and perhaps may be related to the owner. Maybe this is why they do not get rid of her.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday evening till 10:00 PM they have live music. This is why it is packed then with drinkers and falling down drunks. None of the staff will ever cut off a
person who has had too much to drink. Keep that cash register humming!
Drive one mile and go to a multitude of good restaurant's in Chula Vista.

Friday afternoon lunch at the Galley. I had a large portion of fish and chips, others had burgers and club. Food was average. Waitress was frazzled with lunch crowd and service not so good. Tried for 20 minutes to get one water she forgot. Our bill had a drink we did not receive. I have eaten here prior and service and food was better. View is beautiful, hoping it was just an off day.
