Where do the Santa Monica locals go to party? Find out why The Galley is their favorite neighborhood hang-out! Galley’s incredible ambiance, created by its thousands of colored Christmas lights strung throughout its interior. It is our belief – from years of experience, that The Galley is a great place to have that first blind date, or any party, because everybody looks 10 years younger in the warmth of that light! Some menu favorites include: the East Coast Littleneck Clams, the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, Lobster Tacos, the Seafood Diablo, the Mushroom Spinach Ravioli, the Pasta Primavera, Linguini with Clams (pictured), and don’t forget about the killer Filet Mignon Chili!!! Also delightful are the The Galley’s salads, such as the incredible Shrimp Capellini Salad, with the famed “secret recipe” salad dressing… We have a heated patio and custom menus are available... Of course, we offer a full bar, not to mention the friendly attention your guests will receive from our beautiful “Galley Girls” as they serve you. For a really fun, and truly memorable experience, The Galley is a great choice of venue to throw your next party! With Captain Ron at the helm to make sure that the drinks are stiff, and the food and service is first class, your party will enjoy the very best from what our hidden treasure has to offer!
