The Galley serves some of the best boiled and fried seafood in the New Orleans Metro area. Located on Metairie Road in Old Metairie, it draws diners from all around. They have wonderful soups, gumbos and have a dozen or so entrees. There are daily specials that are hard to beat. Their staff is always friendly and imaginative. I brought some out of town guests who wanted to try "a little of a number of dishes." The waiter made several suggetions and just kept on bringing out "a little of this soup, a little of that jambalaya, some boiled shrimp, some friend oysters." My friends swooned over the fried shrimp, which were good sized and crunchy on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. The man is an airline pilot and eats all over the country, but hadn't eaten "fresh gulf shrimp in years."
