Great place to eat outside when the weather is nice. I feel like the food is a little overpriced. It's good, but nothing that impressed me much. Service is typically slow and inattentive.

By far if you are looking for a hamburger, go to the Galley. Very cool old hotel with good food. Live music on the weekends next door. The Diablo burger can be very hot. The Olive burger is very good. Good choice of wines and beer.

The Galley on Second Street is the center of downtown Marietta and marks the confluence of entertainment, shopping and food selection. The Galley itself is a restaurant, but beside it in the same building is the Aldephia music hall where regular concerts are held. Above The Galley is The Hacket Hotel, probably the nicest hotel in Marietta. With all the... More

We always eat here for one meal during our annual trip to Marietta. The service has always been outstanding. The food portions are large (too large!) and the wait staff very accommodating for large groups. The main room is noisy so ask to be seated outside if weather permits.

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.

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

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.
