Much like playing a video game, the act of eating a sandwich requires a person to be seated, in possession of opposable thumbs, and mentally prepared to navigate levels of increasing complexity. Chow down on high scores with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches and drinks at The Captain’s Galley in South Beloit.
The comestible commanders at The Captain’s Galley navigate a wide selection of sandwich fare, specializing in submarine-style sammies. Hunger-busting torpedoes include the Landlubber, a two-handed hoagie layered with american, swiss, provolone, and brick cheese ($7.88), and the Mariner, tuna fish nuzzled against cushions of cheese, all embellished with hard-boiled egg slices ($7.78). All subs arrive dressed for the occasion with an ensemble highlighted by fresh veggies, The Captain's Special Sauce, and a mayonnaise gob knotted into a bow tie. The chefs also pass out quick bites such as polish sausages ($2.49), chili-doused hot dogs ($2.60), and a rotating selection of soups ($2.70/bowl).
The Captain's Galley
The Captain's Galley is a locally owned and operated business, and it has been sinking hunger pangs with meaty subs since 1978. Today, the restaurant continues to dole out a wide variety of half- and full-sized sandwiches, including Italian beef, Polish sausage, and pastrami. The Captain's Galley also presents various sub alternatives, such as soups and chili mac, and any sub can be transformed into a salad or a wrap upon request. The kitchen team even offers 10 varieties of party subs, which are traditionally the least strict of military vessels.
