My husband and I have been to Galen Hall many times. Everything has always been OUTSTANDING. The quality of the food is excellent - especially the dishes that have lump crabmeat in them. The portion sizes are large and the prices are very reasonable. Service can be on the slower side at times, which is fine with us since we usually want to enjoy a relaxing dinner. We love bringing friends and family to your restaurant because it is consistantly good.

My finacee and I came here because we received a $50 Gift Certificate from a friend who really enjoys coming here. After we were finished, I was glad that WE weren't footing the majority of the bill. Ok, they somehow LOST their reservation book. Odd, but not a problem since I had called to confirm the reservations a few days before. The restaurant was nice inside, but I noticed a huge generation gap. We being in our early thirties and the majority of the patrons there being easily double our age. My food was good, not great. I had the Filet Oscar, which is two steak filets with crabmeat, asparagus, and bernaise. Steak and crab were great, I've had much better bernaise. My fiancee had the stuffed flounder which was very good. Our main problem was with the service. We were never asked if we wanted a beverage, even when we ordered. The waitress mostly ignored us, too busy with a larger party across the room. When we tracked her down to ask for something, she would take a long time and usually ended up getting things for the big party first. When we finally got drinks, she never came to see if we wanted more, and we did! To top it all off, she miscalculated our bill, adding an extra $10 to the total. I was afraid to point out the error in fear of having to wait 15 minutes to get the bill back! My fear was justified as we watched her walk over to the big table and prompt refill their drinks! That was the icing on the cake!
As you are probably well aware, the restaurant situation in Berks is very dynamic. New restaurants open and old restaurants close on a regular basis. We need your help keeping this restaurant listing up to date. If you know of a new restaurant that isn't on our list, or a listed restaurant that has closed, we would appreciate it if you would let us know. Thanks!!
