Clearman’s Galley – ‘The Boat’ – started out as a mail-service vessel serving ports between San Francisco and Alaska. In 1968, John Clearman bought it, rechristened it Clearman’s Galley and permanently anchored it on Huntington Drive in San Gabriel to become a hamburger stand.

The Galley soon sailed into the hearts of generations of food lovers who called it “The Boat.” The distinctive red-and-white hulled boat became an architectural landmark. The original hamburger stand expanded with a patio, indoor seating, and big-screen TVs for sports night fun for all ages. The Boat offered a rousing good time until 2007 when it was temporarily closed to make way for new development.

In 2008, Clearman’s Galley reopened at 7215 N Rosemead Boulevard in San Gabriel, just a few feet from where it was originally anchored on Huntington Drive. Though the original vessel was torn down, its wheelhouse has been rebuilt atop a new version of The Boat that sits in front of the expanded restaurant.

History has proven that food fans love Clearman’s Galley for its tangy red cabbage salad, mouth-watering cheese bread, rich and creamy blue cheese salad, and signature chili. The expanded kitchen (1,000 square feet larger) continues to serve these signature dishes and other time-tested favorites – hearty hamburgers, cheeseburgers, tamale plate, chili plate, shrimp and fries, chicken dinner, buffalo wings, chef’s salad, sandwiches, and more. The Galley’s fast-serve line offers soup, salad, and cheese bread for diners in a hurry.

The Boat also became the place to celebrate sports victories from t-ball to the World Series – from Pop Warner to The Super Bowl – from high school basketball to the Final Four. Clearman’s Galley has doubled in size, with plenty of room for fans to watch the HDTV screens (more than 25 of them). And there’s ample free parking behind the restaurant!

The Galley is part of Clearman’s other family-friendly restaurants: The North Woods Inns in Covina, San Gabriel and La Mirada, and Steak ‘n Stein Inn restaurant in Pico Rivera.

Clearman’s  Galley is open for indoor and patio dining and take out.
