Simple but good

Lunch on the patio on a pretty summer's day with my boyfriend. Had the French said and it was tasty. Located in The DeSoto Hotel. Simple good food in a nice atmosphere.

We stopped in for a late lunch and weren't disappointed. Drinks and food were both excellent, wait staff was attentive. We will definitely be back next time we are in Galena.

This restaurant had great food, service, and atmosphere. There was a wide variety of choices which satisfied a meat eater and a vegan. We would definitely eat there again.

We were referred to GST for their burgers and were not disappointed. The menu was eclectic, lots of "comfort" food. The service could have been better, but we were not in a hurry, so it was not a major issue.

This is one of three dining options offered in this very well preserved older hotel. It has a great deal of historical significance and an interesting history. Make sure to get a tour of the hotel. The food was good, and the prices were reasonable.

Th DeSoto Hotel is really impressive, and takes the customer back (sort of) to the era of mid-1800s. Excellent meal with good service in a friendly atmosphere. Enjoyed our visit.

We thought the food was excellent, the staff was extremely nice and served us like they were glad we were here. Prices were reasonable and I do believe the next time we are in town we will visit them again.
