Had a nice lunch at Green Street. The ribs and fries were yummy but sweet potato fries not so great. Great service and a nice setting and location in the heart of Galena.

This weekend we stayed at the DeSoto Hotel. We really enjoyed our burger and fried cheese curds. YUMMY! Also our waitress was great & listened to us. We only said once we were going to share our burger, she brought it to us cut & on 2 plates, I'm a server as well and appreciate when another server takes the... More

Because the weather was superb, I chose to have lunch on the outside porch. Good choice as you could watch all the comings and goings. Polite knowledgeable waitress, wonderful baby spinach salad - complete with strawberries, onions, mandarin oranges and more - just delightful! The best part was a warm roll with strawberry butter - mmmm. Excellent lunch choice -... More

Noisy patrons spoiled this otherwise excellent lunch stop. The food was great, the staff were knowledgeable and helpful but three couples sitting at one of the dining room and all their noisy children at the other made it hard to enjoy ourselves. Highly recommend the tavern but check out the patrons before sitting down.

My family (5 of us) had lunch here while in Galena for the weekend. The food was good but service not so good. The service could have been better, it seemed as if waitress wasn't very good at multitasking, not sure if she was overwhelmed with the number of tables she was servicing, even though there didn't seem to be...

The service was good and the place was nice. I ordered a Bison rib eye steak Med rare and got a steak that was so over cooked I could hardly eat it.

My wife and I had the best ribs and a great server, Stacey, at this gem of a restuarant! Stacey recommended the ribs, the special for that evening, and she really made us feel welcome. She was prompt, attentive, and a real sweetheart.

This was our fourth trip to Galena and the third time we have stayed at the DeSoto House Hotel. Our first trip was before the hotel's massive renovation in the 1980s. This time the atmosphere was different. It was like a big party from the time we arrived until we left. After we checked in and took a quick tour... More
