The Galley offers a welcoming environment for families as well as a sense of community. A nautical theme is set for the 2,000-square-foot space and the dark wooden bar top and booths will add to its timeless feel. Eating here won’t be a consequence of drinking. The Galley’s “galley” will focus on nutritious, fresh food, including vegetarian options.

Our Story

Pete Boland and Ian Taylor have taken over 27 4th St N, St. Petersburg, FL 33701 with their new restaurant and bar, “The Galley”.

Pete and Ian are both native locals to St. Pete, and they are a small minority of bar owners that can say that. This is part of their inspiration for their new “neighborhood bar” owned by the local boys that grew up here and that everyone knows.


As restaurant reviewers, there are definitely times when we just want to eat our food, and not have to do a review—actually, most of the time. Other times, we go to a place with the main intent of doing a review. Last week, when we went to The Galley, it was the former. We just wanted to go eat an early dinner at the bar, chill, and spend some time together before the crowds showed up. Then we started eating the food, and I said, “We have to review this!” Before we get into that, we also need to say that the entire staff is super friendly, and the service is great. Dria took great care of us, and several of the bartenders checked on us, and chatted us up. We felt like regulars, even though I don’t think we’d qualify … yet.
