Galley Hatch Owner Honored

Recognized for giving back to the Hampton community

Hampton restaurateur John Tinios was honored by the Hampton Rotary Club Tuesday night, named “Citizen of the Year” for his business, philanthropy and focus on improving the community.

Tinios, owner of the Galley Hatch and chairman of Experience Hampton, received the award and $1,000 to the charity of his choice at the Ashworth by the Sea Hotel. More than 100 of his friends, family and fellow-business owners attended the event. The night was kept a surprise until he arrived.
“This is a humbling experience,” Tinios said after receiving the award. “I’m much more comfortable giving than I am taking, so tonight is very out of my comfort zone.”

Tinios is known in the Hampton area as an innovator. Most recently, he expanded his Galley Hatch to include a Mediterranean-themed night lounge with a three-season deck, called Tinos. That sort of lounge was lacking in the Seacoast, he said. Read more from the
