Dave Olney, owner of Fisherman’s Galley, the new seafood restaurant that opened in Sequim two weeks ago, said he has closed it down for the foreseeable future.
Olney said the closure was caused by an illness that struck both him and his wife. Because the staff was so small, they had no choice but to close.
Olney said he and his wife have been called away from Sequim to lend a hand to a relative in need.
He added that he’s not giving it up — they will return, and Fisherman’s Galley, which received rave reviews through its few days in operation, will reopen.
Fisherman’s Galley is located at 735 W. Washington St.
