The Galley Grand Opening Today Dec 30, 2016

In our news announcement piece on The Galley posted here, we reported that they would open by year-end. Well, they just made it with a day to spare. Today, December 30 at 4:00 pm, The Galley opens to the public. The last two nights were practice runs with friends and family, and they had a packed house for both nights.

The three things that really set The Galley apart are:

1. Locally Owned & Operated: It’s owned and run by local guys that grew up here and have spent most of their adult lives in the bar and restaurant business – Pete Boland and Ian Taylor, with Ian Carmichael as Executive Chef.

2) Superior Interior: A super cool Nautical themed interior that is just spectacular.

3) Gastropub Food: Why else would St. Petersburg Foodies be writing about it? From the get-go, Pete and Ian decided that they did not want to be serving typical bar food.

Some of the items include; Caprese Salad Skewers, Beef Sliders, Buffalo Shrimp, Grouper sliders, and Florida Conch Chowder with Chili Oil.

The Cuban Nacho was one of my favorites. It’s basically a deconstructed Cuban sandwich that sits on a smashed plantain – and oh, so delicious!

Florida Conch Chowder with Chili Oil

The Florida Conch Chowder was not only one of my favorites, but everybody seemed to love this one. I could eat this for days.

I also loved the Shave & A Haircut drink – Sailor Jerry, Coca Cola, Guinness served over ice with a mint garnish.

DISCLAIMER: Kevin, Lori, Abby, Haley, Lindsey & Mahika do not dine anonymously (this would be impossible) and we sometimes get free food (though never expected). However, we dine with the locals and we support our own. You will always get honesty in a respectful manner. We do not include any large national or regional chains in our ratings and reviews. We focus on independent locally owned eateries exclusively.

PLEASE NOTE: Reviews reflect a certain moment in time. Some restaurants stay extremely consistent over many years, and some change for the better or worse. Some things that may change are: chefs, recipes, food suppliers, ingredients, philosophies, ownership, etc. We always hope that you have the same good, or great experience we had.
