We always go to Gurts, When we are in Galena, This past weekend the food was a letdown, Fries were soggy and Reuben had no sauce, Maybe just a bad day for them, But what a letdown

It was a very busy Sunday in downtown Galena. We couldn't get in to any of the 3 restaurants we wanted because of the long waits. Then we walked by Durty Gurt's and went in. After a short wait, we were seated. Wasn't sure what to expect. We started with their split pea soup. It was obviously home made. Thick... More

We had an excellent server, female, who was genuine and attentive. Burgers were wonderful. Grouper was yummy. Large lunch and small price. Good beer too! Atmosphere is welcoming and laid back. Very clean.

Durty Gurts was a fun place. Loved the décor, the food was great and there was a lot of it, the waitress was great and so were the margaritas! Just a fun place to go.

We go to this restaurant every year on our family vacation to Galena. The burgers are always awesome. I decided to try the Shrimp Po Boy tonight and was unimpressed. I'd stick with the burgers.

I've eaten here a few times and I call it reliable. Service is ok, this past visit was mediocre, the food is ok, not great but consistent. The prices are borderline outrageous but it's Galena. It's great for kids but there are other places.

We have visited many restaurants and this was by far was the best. The food is tasty and they provide healthy portions. The staff was nice and helpful with any questions. This is the only place we eat in the downtown Galena area.

My husband and I stopped in here for on our first night in Galena and we were truly impressed! I ordered the Bloody Mary and OMG, it was so good! Hubby had the Blue Moon burger and he's still raving about! I had a cheese burger that was out of this world! You will not be disappointed if you come... More
