About Tin Pan Galley


Welcome to Tin Pan Galley
...a cozy little restaurant, in a very old building,
in one of the smallest historic towns in the USA.

The Building...This transitional Federal to Greek Revival Period, 3 story brick structure was completed in 1835. The original plan was for the 1st floor to be a restaurant, second floor a dining room and dance hall, and the 3rd floor to host four rooms for rent.
From the fourth floor attic, you can make your way out to the Widow's Walk which was said to allow women to look out over the Harbor, anxiously awaiting their husbands' return.

The Restaurant...The owners, having acquired a collection of antique tinware and also being inspired by Sackets Harbor's ship building history during the war of 1812, opened the restaurant as Tin Pan Galley in 1986.
The grounds of the property have gone through many transformations through the years and today you can find diners enjoying the patio and gardens in a lush European inspired atmosphere where musicians perform and guests dine and meander through the gardens that provide Tin Pan Galley with herbs and edible flowers that are used as garnish for plates served.

The building is now on the National Register of Historic places.
