We walk up and down the Main St in Galena to find a place to eat and came back to Green Street and we are SO glad we did. Big restaurant, it is right inside the DeSoto House (hotel). When you walk in, its to your right. There is a door going into the restuarant too from the side walk.... More

We stopped by for an afternoon cocktail and ended up having some appetizers on the patio. It was relaxing the sangria was ice cold and yummy and the appetizers were a perfect hold over until dinner! The staff was friendly and helpful I will definitely go back!

My wife and I along with some friends were returning back to Galena from the House on the Rock and stopped in Galena to get something to eat. We were walking down Main Street and spotted the Green Street Tavern. We looked at the menu and decided to eat there. The food was good. I really enjoyed the spinach salad... More
