To suggest that Galley took

a bit longer to launch than anticipated would be to undersell the point!

But here we are, in the midst of our third year, & the pains of some unexpected renovations have all been replaced by the joy of doing business on Front Street. 


So many imaginative, patient & local people put a fingerprint on our creation. 

Our dedicated staff began training at our sister spots - The Tinker's Son in Norwell & bia bistro in Cohasset - then dug in to get Galley going, sanding furniture, painting walls & lacquering the bar.   

Take a look around to find copper tables, linens, butcher block & Galley's carved sign made right here in Scituate; wood from a wind farm in Norwell; metalwork from Wellfleet; paintings from Cape Cod.   

We are delighted to live & work in this special piece of earth called Scituate. 

We hope you find that it shows.

GALLEY KITCHEN & BAR, BEST NEW RESTAURANT SOUTH, 2015

"When Galley opened last year in Scituate Harbor, it bridged the gap between townie bars and white-tablecloth bistros. Locals have responded in droves, packing the stylishly weathered wooden tables for chef-owner Brian Houlihan’s smartly executed small plates—fried lobster with wasabi aioli, duck drumettes with Thai chili. The Galley’s unusual weekend brunch menu, complete with grilled grapefruit, apple-cider fritters, and Fruity Pebble French toast, is justifiably popular.
