The best Sunday brunch around. The dinners are good and the menu has food for everyone. They serve seafood but also a variety wide variety of other dishes.

We went out to eat here last night. There were four of us. Our waitress was very nice, three of the items on the menu were not available at 8pm on a Friday night. What we did order was very good, oysters on the half, clam chowder, salad (mostly iceberg lettuce) lobster roll, and hamburgers and for our drinks locally... More

Made 7:30pm reservations for Sat Apr 30, 2017. Arrived about 7:15 and was promptly seated. I ordered a hibiscus margarita. It had great flavor. The waiter brought out fresh warm dinner rolls. Jen ordered sirloin steak tips, and I ordered baked stuffed haddock with lobster sauce. The entrée included 2 sides. The stuffing was a delicious butter crumb stuffing, with... More

Enjoying a delicious lunch at the Galley Hatch after dealing with one of the most rude individuals I've ever encountered at a restaurant, or anywhere for that matter. As someone who eats out 2-3 times per week, I value customer service greatly. The Old Salt is always a staple of fine seafood when visiting the Hampton, NH area. Today we... More

We are grateful that customers like... More

The four of us ended up with four different meals and every one of them was simply delicious. With cleaned plates there was no room for dessert. The service was excellent and the general atmosphere was very enjoyable.

Looked this place up on TA and noticed it was #1. Thus, had to go check it out for myself. Atmosphere is warm and cozy. Staff and service very friendly, accommodating and quick! The food is superb! The clam chowder is thick and creamy the way it should be. The maple butter that comes with the dinner rolls are a... More

I'm assuming that if this place can handle Easter buffet the way they did then they should be able to turn out a good dinner experience on a normal day. We showed up for our 1:00 reservation to see a big mob milling around outside the restaurant and long lines in a packed hallway inside. I was pretty discouraged, thinking... More

Our group ate at their Easter buffet. Their booking was a mess and did not allow time to cycle through seatings, leaving people packed in hallways and outdoors waiting past their reservation time. Once seated our server was very good. The area we were in had tchotchkes and such covering every inch of the walls. They were all dusty and... More
