Refuel with a hearty lunch during your zoo visit or stop by in the evening for a cozy dinner and drinks! For menus, hours, and additional information, visit www.gallifords.com or call 508-928-0928.
Galliford’s remains open year-round. Restaurant hours and menu are subject to change seasonally.
Note: Zoo admission is not required to dine at Galliford’s.
Stroller Policy: Sorry, strollers are not allowed in Galliford’s as they can block walking areas and create a safety hazard for both guests and restaurant staff. The restaurant can be very high traffic during the zoo season, and we aim to maintain a safe environment. Stroller parking is available outside the Galliford’s entrance, however any guests not comfortable with leaving a stroller in the outside area are welcome to speak with a manager discuss to other options. Thank you!
