Description: The Galley has been a Marietta gathering place for generations. The Galley...
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.

Mahi Diablo was great! I eat here every other week or so. Suggestion: Since they now have a good piece of fish please consider a blackened Mahi sandwich! No one in the valley does this. Only deep fried crap. Love the Galley and the Hackett. Oh and Bartender Chris is the best!

Come for the show, stay for the food. Or vice versa! Usually can catch a great music act and some great food while I'm in town. Try the Diablo burger and watch for John Walsh to play!

After reading Yelp we thought we would start here since we just arrived to Marietta. The ambiance in the restaurant was very cool, could tell there were many of stories from time past. The selection of draft beer was quite good, some local beers that I had not have before. Tried a Dales Pale Ale, it was actually really good!... More

My husband had Wasabi Crusted Tuna which he said was excellent. Nice bar menu and an old saloon atmosphere in the main part of downtown. We have eaten here several times and always stop in when in town.

I think Wednesday is the day for the BLT wrap. Order it. Eat it. Enjoy it. It is literally the best wrap of any kind that I have ever eaten. Yes, yes, bacon makes everything better, but this BLT is truely outstanding. Oh, and ask about Charlotte.
