Does anyone remember Sea Galley? Wed, 11/8/06 3:14 AM (permalink)
Not sure if this was a national or regional chain but they were more/less like Red Lobster.

Back in the early 80s my parents took us to one in a shopping center in Hagerstown, Maryland ( a book store is in that location now ). I have been told they had locations in Virginia as well back in the 70s and early 80s.

Being only 12 at the time, I really wasn't that much into seafood then but I do remember they had a Ms. Pac-Man game there for those who wanted something to do while they waited for their food.

    Somewhere in the recesses of my tiny brain I recall something like that in Houston.

    I don't know if you had them up there but we also had somthing called First Mate down here. It was almost like a Long John Silvers. I remember the employess dressed like sailors and the manager like an officer.

      There was a Sea Galley in Boulder for many years during the 80's. I think it was similar to Dead Lobster, maybe a cut above. I do know that I loved it -- I'll take fish when I can get it.

        Here's another trip down memory lane. Anyone remember Zider Zee (spell). They were shaped like a Dutch windmill and sold the same food as like Long Johns.

        Or Alfie's Fish & Chips. I think there is still one left around here in Texas City. If BP hasn't blown it up yet.

          we had sea galley resturants in washington until the early 1990's. they were ok, it seemed like most people went there for the bar, not the food though.....

            I remember Sea Galley in Denver in the early '80...I was about 3...I don't remember if they were any good or not. We went for my sister's birthday.

              Sea Galley as I know it originated in Port Townsend WA and last time I was there, it still existed. There is one still open in Anchorage AK. They have a good oyster bar, an outstanding salad bar and the sea food dishes are good. I'd say its a cut above Red Lobster but being from SE Alaska, I'm spoiled by all the seafood we can catch.

                There still is a Sea Galley in Anchorage. Disappointing by AK standards, the land of king crab, snow crab, fish, shrimp, scallops, oysters and clams to name a few of the bounty our waters have. We were not impressed by this restaurant.

                  Most of the Sea Galleys in the Pacific Northwest (its home area) were converted to Keg Steakhouses, it seems. Most have been gone at least a decade.

                  Two things I remember: Their "whose got crab legs?"special which ran in the winter, and the "King Clam Steak", which was a pounded out, breaded and fried geoduck clam. Those had variable quality, and the concept never seemed to catch on elsewhere. The geoducks now seem to be largely sold only at the Pike Place market to...who?

                    geoduck (a very large clam..) can be good, but like calamari it turns into rubber if it's overcooked, and every restarant i've tried seems to overcook it..

                      There was also "Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips". I remember it was the first time I tried malt vinegar on my fish & chips. The restaurant was in Marietta, GA.
