The term “Galley” refers to the open kitchen which will be visible from the dining room, allowing guests to get a first hand look at creativity behind Chef Vicky Rutledge’s cuisine. The inviting restaurant will have a beautifully manicured garden, creating a memorable experience for all guests. 

Galley and Garden is located in what was once The Merritt House. Built in 1908, The Merritt House was an elegant home with expansive porches that graced Highland Avenue in the early 20th century. Galley and Garden intends to enhance the grandeur of the original home with modern Southern touches. 

Galley and Garden, featuring modern American cuisine with Southern influences.
