Galley at the Marina: VT Member's CHOICE 2015
When the building was constructed and a restaurant opened up at the J Street Marina, it was a big disappointment to me. It seemed that the menu offered breakfast in the morning and unremarkable sandwhiches for the early afternoon. Such a waste for the spectacular location and of course the business didn't succeed.
Several years later some creative soul, named Fran, transformed the place into a relaxing, waterfront restaurant with a menu to please most people. It seems that Fran, the widow of Bill Muncey, a speedboat racing champion, had the imagination to see what her Galley At The Marina could be and she prevailed!
This comfortable restaurant right on the bay, overlooking the marina has a moderately priced menu, a great deal at Happy Hour and Monday, "All you can Eat" Spaghetti, Taco Tuesday, Wednesday, 1/2 lb. Cheeseburger, Thursday, "All you can Eat" Fish & Chips.
You may dine inside or out, the view is spectacular and every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night local talent provides live music for an entertaining evening on the bay.
The food servers are friendly and accommodating. Even during the week they can get pretty busy, and then you'll see Fran helping out where she can.
Favorite Dish: I normally order what you like, for me it's Fish and Chips, Cobb Salad, Potato Skins, Jalapeno Poppers, Bloody Mary or in the evening a delicious martini. (Not necessarily all at the same time.)
However, over the years I've come here with family and friends and they like what they order too. Recently, my son's took me here for Mother's day and though I ordered a Cobb Salad, we shared dishes so, I tasted the Cajun Seafood Pasta, the Chicken Tequila Fettuccini and the Blackened Ahi Sashimi, all flavourful & delicious.
Honestly, any meal here is good, it's a relaxing place and the views are amazing.

Galley at the Marina: Ocean Harbor view
Trying to "branch out" in our new home location, we went driving to the marina area and found a couple places right on the water. Checking our local ratings one didn't fare so well so we chose the Galley at the Marina.
The location is great with a nice view of the Chula Vista marina. Plenty of outdoor seating was available and although we didn't go in, the bar looked like it had a local "crowd."
The menu was rather typical with everything from burgers to seafood.
Favorite Dish: I choose the soup and salad. The caesar was good, but not great as was the clam chowder. I'd have it again. My wife had a burger which she said was ok but not great (we're very finiky burger and beer people). It's very hard to find a restaurant to follow "very crispy fries" instructions.
As we were eating a plate of Fish 'n Chips went past. It looked wonderful so we'll have to come back and give that a try.

galley at the marina: not going to try again
This was my first time eating there... they must not want a return customer... I had the fish and chips, the chips/fries were fine it was the soggy coleslaw and the greasy fish.
the oil used was maybe not hot enough or dirty oil.
I didn't taste fish.
I will not eat there again...
my friend had a salad, and a bowl of clam chowder... the salad looked a bit wilty... from the night before.
Favorite Dish: I won't be trying another
The Galley at the Marina: Lovely view, good food at a nice price:)
A nicely priced meal with a view of the Chula Vista Marina. We ate on the outside deck and enjoyed the fresh air with our well-prepared and tasty meal.
Favorite Dish: Linda swears by the fish & chips -- I had the mango chicken breast sandwich.
Galley at the Marina: It's the FOOD!!!
In the foreground is my mango chicken breast sandwich -- behind are Linda's fish & chips.
Favorite Dish: The one I had :)))
