It was fresh, on time, and all the orders were correct. My crew were young out of towners from cities with dietary requests that were all met. And everyone was happy. People on the phone in the evening communicated with the people in the morning making the food.

My wife and I stopped by to try it one evening. The service was extremely slow. The food came with way too much American cheese, and the bacon felt overcooked.

We wound up here after discovering the Levee House closed at 8. Since it was late, my friend and I split the brick chicken. It was good, and the side of risotto was wonderful. The pumpkin creme brulee was serviceable. Not the best meal, but for the price it was reasonable. Music from the adjoining tavern entertainment area was fun,... More

I made reservations for 7 but we got there at 630 and they sat us immediately. There was a concert next door we were thinking of attending so wanted to eat there first. We opted for burgers. I wanted black and blue but wasn't on the menu. Our server Rachel made it happen. My husband had the Diablo. He tried... More

We had 20 folks in our party and they were able to seat us within 20 minutes, apologizing to us for our wait several times. The service was excellent, the menu extensive, the food great and the price average, except for the wine, which was way over priced!

My high school buddy and his wife treated my wife and I to dinner ... We had the best time and hamburgers we've had in years ... The hamburger had a nice big chunk of meat on it , probably close to a 1/3 to a 1/2 pounder ... Service was very good as well ... Enjoy we sure did... More

I stopped in here this evening for a little dinner, I was not disappointed. The staff was friendly and attentive. I had the fish & chips with Cole slaw and it was excellent, a nice crispy coating on the fish and the fries were done just right, the cole slaw was also good. I would recommend this place to all.

Description
The Galley has been a Marietta gathering place for generations. The Galley is quite literally in the center of Historic Downtown Marietta and continues to be the hub of its entertainment world. Marietta College students and alumni meet each other for Homecoming, Graduation, reunions and formals here. Business people hold meetings, client dinners, seminars and banquets with us. Travelers have been delighted with our cuisine and atmosphere. Of course, our beloved locals have turned The Galley into the Mid-Ohio Valley's hot spot for Happy Hour, Wing Nights, Mug Club Mondays, friendly meetings, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, birthdays, and sometimes "just because". We are on a culinary mission to provide Marietta and the surrounding Mid-Ohio Valley with the most interesting and best quality food possible. Our Culinary Director has designed a menu based upon fresh ingredients, quality meats and vegetables, unique flavors and familiar favorites. The Galley's culinary perspective sits at the crossroads of neighborhood gastropub and high-end steak house. Tapping into the local dining scene takes just that - taps. And guess what, we have 24 of them. We also carry well over 50 bottled beers and a 6-page beverage menu that will make you drool. Three antique bars serve specialty libations, rotating craft brews, domestic beers, aged whiskies and even cigars! In an effort to keep the newest and best selection for our customers, we host craft brew and wine dinners. These limited ticket evenings pair seasonal beers and wines with multi-course meals and live entertainers for a distinctive culinary experience.
