The Green Street Tavern, located in the famous DeSoto House hotel, was a great place to get supper Friday night before the Galena Ghost Walk which started in the DeSoto House lobby. The food, service, and drinks were all excellent! After our Ghost Tour Saturday night, which had their van stop just behind the hotel, we stopped in the Green... More

We stopped by for dinner. I had the battered cod and my guests had sandwiches. My fish was pretty greasy, but fine. My fiancé's sandwich had dents in the bun from the cooks fingers. Our server seemed a bit confused with what was going on in the restaurant. It wasn't awful, but there are many other places to go.

We love coming to Galena and staying at the DeSoto house....it's right on the Main Street where all the action is. The Greenstreet tavern is attached to the DeSoto house... They have excellent bar staff especially Jesse who is so efficient and friendly! He makes a great "specialty" drink that is worth coming in for. Nice place to watch sports... More

Two rooms to choose from. Front street room traditional Galena but the back room a bit more comfy. Service very average and food well prepared but nothing terribly special. Location in the Desoto Hotel is fun, take the free walking tour, only takes a very few minutes.

Just finished eating lunch and decided to leave a review while waiting for the check. We both order the Green Street burger. My burger was warm but my wife's was room temperature and really greasy which was unusual for grass fed beef. My fries were cold and chewy, never had chewy fries before. My wife had the sweet potato chips... More
