    Hadn't eaten at the Galley Hatch for several years. Decided to go with another couple on a Tuesday evening. Made our reservation for 5PM online via OpenTable. We were seated promptly upon arrival. The Galley Hatch has a large menu and it was hard to decide what to order. I had the Mac and Cheese with buffalo chicken (huge portion, could only eat half of it). My wife had the chicken kebab skewers which she enjoyed. The other couple had the swordfish special and the sirloin tips and were also complimentary of their meals. Based on this experience will definitely dine at The Galley Hatch in the future.

    Food is consistently good. Service is fine. It’s a little noisy if you have hearing aids. Noise bounces off the walls.

    The Galley Hatch is a must if you are in the Hampton NH area. The varied menu offers many choices to please any palate. My husband and I have been here many times through the years and the food is always consistently excellent! The portions are generous, whether you order an entree, sandwich, burger or salad. As well as the drinks. Finally, there is also the bakery in the entrance featuring many incredible looking desserts! If you are looking for a restaurant with a comfortable atmosphere, delicious food and desserts, at great value; the Galley Hatch is it!

    We usually have a good experience. Unfortunately, my prime rib was overcooked and cold. Disappointed as this was our anniversary dinner.

    We go to the Galley Hatch frequently. We are never disappointed. With it being Mother's Day, the restaurant was packed with families, kids, and couples. The staff was awesome dealing with all the reservations and non-reservations. We were seated about 10 minutes after our reservation time of 6:15 pm. The food was terrific from the bread and butter start. I had the clam chowder and baked stuffed 2# lobster and my spouse had the shrimp cocktail and the big prime rib. All items were delicious. They are a little pricey, but it's worth the treat! Our server was Robin and she was terrific.

    We’ve been there many times. Yes the pricing is high but the food is usually good. My wife wanted to go to Galley Hatch for Mother’s Day along with our family. Out reservation was 5:45. We got to the table at 5:45. So far so good. Waitress finally came to table in about 15 minutes later. We waited 70 minutes to get food. 3 parties came in after us were served and left before we got our food. While waiting we got bread but no plates for bread. Had to hold in hand or put on table. Saw waitress maybe 3 times during entire meal. Horrible experience, not sure if we’re going back.
