The Galley Patio & Grill Restaurant Review

: A favourite of locals in the know, The Galley, just steps from the beach, boasts vistas of the city and mountains plus vast expanses of Burrard Inlet. Count freighters at anchor, watch cruise ships sailing in and out of port, and enjoy sailboats, kayaks, canoes and paddle-boarders to-ing and fro-ing directly in front. The outdoor patio tables are in high demand with beach walkers and thirsty sailors --- staircases lead directly up from the sandy beach --- as well as visitors from near and far. Casual is the name of the game, and the food and drink follow suit, including ordering directly from the cooks at the counter. Local beer, cider and a few BC wines are available. The menu features nachos, burgers, hot dogs and sandwiches such as the Mexican pulled pork, Southern Texas brisket, and triple grilled cheese. Fish ā€˜nā€™ chips, Baja fish tacos, oyster po' boys, and the wild sockeye salmon salad are other options. Fried Chicken Mondays is among the nightly dinner highlights. Order an ice cream cone to-go for dessert and then enjoy a salt air, oceanside stroll.
