Horrible service, the food was not warm enough. The food is greasy and the fish was not great. I only ate there one time and that was enough for me. It looks run down and needs to be updated.

Locals seemed to be loyal to this spot. We had to wait about a half hours for our order but it was worth the time. The vegetable pasty was very tasty. It is on my list to return to when in town again.

What a great restaurant. On our first visit we had to wait 30 minutes for a table ( a busy restaurant is usually a good sign). We chose to eat from the seniors menu and the four of us agreed that the meal size was more than adequate. The first night I had fish cooked to perfection with a good... More

We had a white fish dinner and The Best apple I've ever had pie for desert. Excellent crust on the pie. I would recommend this to anyone who likes either fish or pie.

We enjoyed this restaurant near our motel. We sat in the room in the back with a lake view. Large menu, good food, good service. Very busy place, glad we got there before the bus tour group arrived!

We stopped in at the Galley after a long day of touring the U.P. It appeared that the only other option for dining was a local pizza spot, and they were overfilled, so we gave the Galley a try and were glad that we did! We we given a bayside window seat, which was neat, even though it was pretty... More

We ate the Galley for Breakfast and dinner on our recent trip. The Breakfast was great!! Biscuits with homemade sausage milk gravy, eggs and perfect hash browns. The pancakes were perfect!! For dinner it was fresh from the lake whitefish, flash fried. The fish was incredibly mild and tasty. My wife even complimented the fish and she is not a... More

We ate here again and this time the whitefish livers and salmon spread were even better than the last time! They are closing in a week for the winter but we will be sure to be back again in June when we visit again for the Lilac Festival.

Ate our evening meal here. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. Had suggestions for what she felt was the best meal that day. The cost ran in the average amount. Their were four of us, two had steaks, one had prime rib and one fish. We all felt our meals were excellent. We also had dessert. The pies were... More
