I have lived in the area for three weeks. My wife and I have been to the Galway three times. It is a great place to go for a drink as it is really an authentic Irish bar and reminds me of Ireland. We have had snacks before that were O.K. but last Friday night my wife ordered grouper and chips. They were great. The portion was large and it seemed to be fresh? Anyway it was much better than the greasy sausage/chicken tasting fish that is all cooked in the same oil in the U.K. and without out the newspaper print. I found the beer to be a little pricy and tend to have a couple there and move on so I can drink more cheaply (I drink Stella). I would definately recommend the Galway Hooker to anyone. It is a nice place except for the smoking. It would be nice it would be truly Irish and stop the smoking. Pros: Unique and friendly atmosphere. Food experience has been good.Cons: Smoking and beer too expensive.
