So many other places are So much better – I've been to the Galaxy twice. Second time I was smart enough not to eat the food. I would say my main complaint is the speed, or lack of, service. I've been there when it is packed and I've been there when it is average (some booths were empty and no one was standing to get a spot.) Both times meant there was about 20+ minute wait to get service. Worse is that each server has a specific table and if you get a slow one everyone around you will be served way ahead of you. The last time our server spent more time refilling water glases than taking drink orders. The food is low on the list of why people go there and it shows. I had sweet and sour...something. The meat was still cold inside and the corn syrup sauce on the outside was room temp. If you are fond of Chinese-sish food and karaoke I would reccomend Chopsticks or anything really.
Fun place – The Galaxy is a pretty fun place. I went with a large group of people to just hang out and drink and do some karaoke. Their daiquiris and well drinks are pretty good and the our waitress was very nice and attentive. Their karaoke selections are pretty good. After a few drinks and some encouragement by my friends..i sang a song...pretty badly I might add. However, the crowd was pretty nice..and they really got into some of the songs. I really liked this karaoke bar.
check this place out!!! – Not your everyday karaoke joint. A great place to sing 7 nights a week. What's cool about this joint is anybody and everybody comes in and sings their heart out. Sometimes it's cool just as a spectator sport. Nice staff, great Chinese food, and monster burgers. Another well known fact about the galaxy, THEY CARD EVERYBODY, SO BRING YOUR ID. They also have a great karaoke policy-NO BRIBES. first come first served. love it! Anyway, check it out for yourself. If you wanna get a chance to sing more than twice, better come during the week. Still busy, but not wall to wall. thanks for reading!
Wanna-be "American Idols" sing their hearts out at this popular karaoke bar. – In Short
Outfitted with huge booths, an exotic saltwater fish tank and bar games galore--pool, darts and pinball--this dim lounge is packed with regular songbirds weeknights and novices on weekends. DJs manning the extravagant karaoke system keep young hipsters and ballad-singing office party participants happy well into the wee hours. Meanwhile, those with the munchies sample Chinese and American dishes, including fried rice and patty melts.
Good karaoke if you are not intimidated – I can't really review the restaurant, as my visit was purely for the bar and karaoke. The drinks were passable but not spectacular. Their karaoke system is very good, their selection of songs is large, and the KJ was great. However, if you're new to karaoke (as I am) you might find yourself intimidated by the skill level of some of the performers. My friends and I were there on a Saturday night and the place was hopping, and we ended up heading to a smaller bar with a lower average singing ability. :-)
