Great place for good food, nice environment inside and outside. Family and child oriented. The service was efficient and friendly. The good was good and there was a lot. I shared with my son and we took some home. We would recommend.

We went there on a Saturday Evening with a party of 11 (mix adults, teens, kids). Called ahead and they assured us seating within 10 minutes. When we arrived we where seated right away. It was in the bar area, but that was fine. We ordered 4 large thin crust pizza, veggie, sausage, cheese and a Hawaiian. The crust was... More

Grabbed dinner here one night with our adult party of 6. After a couple issues with getting a table (woman cutting in line ahead of me), we were able to be seated on the outdoor patio. Host must have felt bad about our initial seating issues because we were sent a free round of drinks from the bar, which was... More

This place is pretty good, been there before. Beer nuggets and salad are pretty standard with any order and quite tasty. We got a pizza for me to split with the kids...it was not very good. I would recommend the hamburger if you go to Gobby's.

My wife and I ate at Gobbies Sports Pub and Eatery. Although this restaurant is a Sports Pub, the TVs aren't blaring and it has a very upscale outside sitting area without TVs. Thus, you can enjoy this restaurant without being a sports fan. My wife ordered a burger and fries and I ordered a cajun chicken sandwich and fries.... More

We tried to eat at this place several times during our time in Galena, always a long line and wait time. Which of course tells me that this place must be amazing. We finally got in on our last day in Galena and loved the service and especially the food. Had a small Gobbies pan pizza. Since we ordered a... More

My wife and I didn't eat here, so I cannot comment on their food or the food prices. However, their outdoor patio is a "must-stop" place for drinks (or food) when walking Main Street in Galena. We stopped for drinks. Sat in very comfortable (padded) lounge chairs while sipping a cold beer on a warm afternoon. Delightful. The sun got... More

We were very happy with the patio area, the food, and the service. Our waitress was very nice (a little clumsy--but she had a great sense of humor so it actually added to our experience). You get a lot of food for your money! All dinners come with beer nuggets (fried pizza dough) and a salad. We probably would have... More

My wife and I visited Gobbies for lunch during our recent visit to Galena. We had a thin crust pizza, which was very good. The pizza came with salad and "beer nuts" (seasoned pizza dough with marinara sauce). It was a good value and good food. They have a pretty cool outdoor seating area, but it was too hot to... More

We've been to galena a few times and never stopped here. After lunch today I know why. Ordered the chicken ranch sandwich was ok but very salty & fries were so-so. I couldn't finish cause the other half was burnt (looked like the leftover grill crust). They said it was cause the sandwich is grilled open faced ... The other... More
