Frank Fenner, the Chilmark selectman, his wife Merrily and sister Barbara purchased the Galley, a seasonal fixture on the picturesque Menemsha harbor for years, in 1999.
The Fenner family and an extended network of young people work in the snack bar, which attracts regular Island patrons and visitors throughout the day. Galley fare ranges from soft-serve ice cream to specialty sandwiches created by Barbara Fenner, a trained chef. A back porch provides comfortable seating and a view of the harbor. The Galley is open seven days a week Memorial Day through Columbus Day.
