We’re a family owned and operated restaurant located in Waynesville, a town in the beautiful Great Smokey Mountains of Western North Carolina.

We will be closed on Wednesday's until further notice.

Since opening in 1989, we have been frequented by locals and visitors alike. We’re known for our fresh, cooked-to-order seafood, hand-shucked Gulf and Blue Point oysters, poultry, pasta, and hand-cut steaks. Our house-made seafood chowder is the all-time customer favorite. If there’s any room left over, try one of our homemade desserts. Our bar offers a variety of cocktails, an extensive wine list, and a selection of draft, craft and microbrew beers.

At the Galley, we serve seven days a week for lunch and dinner, as well as brunch on Sundays. Our creative team in the kitchen comes up with daily specials for lunch and dinner, and we serve generous portions of food that is as local and fresh as we can acquire.


We’re a first come, first serve restaurant. We do not seat incomplete parties and cannot place you on our waitlist until your party is complete. We do understand parties and special events, and on Monday through Thursday can accommodate parties of ten to forty. Call and ask for one of our managers as the room fills quickly and we will do our best for you and your group.


Please call and place your to go order at 828-456-8945. We will take phone orders until we begin a wait and at this point all to go orders will be placed in person at the bar.
