The Galley Hatch
The Galley Hatch Restaurant in Hampton on the New Hampshire Seacoast offers a casual dining experience with consistently excellent food and service. Since 1970 the continuing appeal of The Galley Hatch remains simple: consistently excellent food and treating the guest as part of the family. As Ellie, a waitress who began her service three decades ago, says,
You can't beat the Galley Hatch for excellent food and professional waitstaff. Their desserts are to die for and definitely pick one up for someone you want to impress. I have been going there for years. You can't beat their french onion soup, reuben sandwich, or herb crusted chicken. Their prices are reasonable for a good restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant!
I was a regular at the Galley Hatch for a few years. I left for a year, and when I went back for the first time after moving back to the area, I wasn't impressed. The prices have always been a dollar or two higher then they should have been, but I accepted that. Now they've raised them even higher and I can't justify going there anymore. What made it worse is the portions had shrunk! I ordered the same thing I had ordered 20 times before, but it was a smaller portion and not even cooked right. The only thing still worth the money is the desserts which is pretty much all I will be getting at the Galley Hatch in the future.
For a great place to sit back, have some New England cuisine and enjoy your cocktail, The Galley Hatch is the place you want to be. I highly recommend the surf and turf along with the best fried calamari I have ever had for appetizer. The prime rib tends to be very well prepared too.
I've been coming going to the Galley Hatch since I was 8 years old....now 41...the food/service was great then but even better now. The food, wait staff and abmiance surpass any other restaurant on the seacoast of New Hampshire.
The desserts are the only reason to go to this restaurant. The service is consistently slow, and the food is usually prepared with dissatisfying ingredients, examples being brown leaves in the salad, and the use of mayo that has gone bad. The lighting is dark so if you enjoy not being able to see details, such as the silverware being dirty, this is the place for you. Now back to the desserts, you can order these out, so I would recommend doing so. My personal favorite is the Napoleon, though there are many fancy desserts to choose from. At some point you must leave this restaurant with a box of desserts, that's living! In short don't eat here, order a box of goodies and be gone.
