Contemporary American
Chef James Boyce and wife and partner, Suzan, invite you to Galley & Garden, Birmingham’s newest destination for American-French inspired cuisine. Located in what was once the historic Merritt House on Highland Avenue, Galley & Garden underwent renovations in the summer of 2014, enhancing the grandeur of the original home with modern touches. Today, both the cuisine and the atmosphere of Galley & Garden highlight the juxtaposition of traditional and modern Southern touches.

Everything we ordered was delicious! Our waiter was very attentive and gave his honest opinion when we asked for recommendations. It was intimate and quiet, perfect for a birthday dinner. There were so many things on the menu that looked good, I would definitely go back again!

We really enjoyed our experience (food, beverage, and service). One big advantage was the onsite parking which prevented having to find a place to park and then trek back to the location

Wonderful food and service. A perfect way to experience a summer evening in Birmingham. Wish we could’ve sat on the terrace but a stray rainstorm keep us indoors. Would recommend to all!

My husband and I went for dinner last night, as we really needed a date night away from the kids. We have not been out for dinner since all the Covid craziness and this was a perfect date night! The staff was so pleasant, all wearing masks, and so conscientious of everything going on. The food was fabulous and cocktails were great as well. Well done! We will surely be back!

We went for our 30th Anniversary dinner mainly because G&G was one of the only places open for dining. It had been awhile since we were last there and WOW! We were both extremely pleased. The food was great and the service even better. Keep it up, we'll definitely be back soon.

We were thankful to eat dinner out after being in lockdown for so long due to the pandemic. The menu was not as expansive as it usually is, and we really missed the flatbreads. The fried oyster appetizer was delicious, but the fried green tomatoes were undercooked and cold. My husband's pasta dish was delicious, but the beet salad was not. Very few beets, no dressing -- just a bunch of arugala. We'll go back and hope the food quality has improved next time.

As other restaurants start to reopen in Birmingham, they should use G and G as an example. Great service, excellent menu, fabulous wine list, and they are handling all the new COVID guidelines in a very professional manner, while making the customer feel extremely comfortable. Thank you for making the difficult decision to be one of the first to open and we can’t wait to see you again very soon!
