Default Seafood Galley

A group of four of us had a bad experience at the new Seafood Galley. We arrived at 6:20 PM and ordered about 6:30. an hour later we still had not recieived our dinners and the explanation was there was a problem with the baked pototatoes that 3 of us ordered. By 7:45 the waitress decided to bring our food without the potatoes since she didn't want to see us wait any longer. The potatoes never came and they never gave us a good explanation. After all, how hard is it to prepare a baked potatoe. We received a $3 per person discount for no potatoes. All four of us decided we wouldn't give this place any more of our business. We asked if the same people ran the place since they moved from the shopping center and was told this is new management. I can see why the place has gone down hill.

Default Once is Enough

Four of us went to Seafood Galley a couple of weeks ago. We will not be back. We waited for nearly an hour for our orders. The clam chowder had NO clams at all - just potatos. When I pointed this out to management I was told that since I had eaten half of the chowder (in search of a clam) I would be charged the full price for it.
Well, they got their $3.95 (or whatever it was) for the chowder but they lost four customers for good.

I have noticed their parking lot empty the last few days. Either business is very bad or they are no longer in business.

We went there about a month ago with a large group and the service was terrible. We had to wait almost an hour for the food to come. The manager never came over to explain the delay. When it finally arrived there was one dinner short. They finally brought it over about 10 minutes after the rest of us got our food. We will never go back there.

I would like to see Siam Orchid come back. They had good food, good prices, good service.

Maybe it is the location.

Siam Orchid was far and away my favorite restaurant in The Villages. Good food and a great staff.
