Stopped for light lunch and a break from the cold. What a joy, sat in the bar, watched football and had white chicken chili in a bread bowl served with cheese and perfectly ripened grapes. Beer selection was good both the local craft beer choices and diverse taps of 6 on draft. Added to the very... read more

We dined at Green Street Tavern the week after Christmas, and during a snow and ice storm. This likely made the place quieter than may be normal, and we were able to sit close to the fireplace. Our initial server knew little about wine and was unable to make a recommendation, though another server took over and was both knowledgeable... More

We travel to Galena several times a year. The shopping is fun and the activities are too. Historical sites, skiing, golf. All are there. We love to stop at Green Street for lunch and libations after skiing or for snacks and a rest when shopping. We also enjoy a casual dinner. The menu is broad and inviting. The staff is... More

I want to start out by mentioning that I can't say enough how great their customer service is. Very polite and friendly, and just great all around. The place seems clean as well, although I generally ordered my food for pickup as opposed to dining in. The quality of the food, on the other hand, is rather inconsistent. Sometimes it's... More

DeSoto House is a nice place. Love the history and ambience. We just had sandwiches but they were really good. Our waiter Ken was very attentive and friendly.

This was our second time here. It was very nice at lunchtime when we came through this area 3 years ago so we went back for dinner this time through. Limited menu but the food was very good. Pleasant service. The apple/berry salad was excellent.

So glad we went to this beautiful historic place for lunch. Service and ambiance great. But the food was a surprise. I had a spinach salad -really fresh and good with the best dressing (vanilla vinaigrette) I have had in a long time! My husband had a Cajun salmon sandwich and homemade chips and really liked it. We thought it... More
