Great Lunch Spot

After seeing Gobbies before, this trip to Galena was the first time I had actually been there. The food was great! The only problem was they gave you too much of it! Anyone who orders gets a house salad and beer bread before you get your meal. The salad and bread were so good, it was hard to save... read more

We summer close by and frequent Gobbies often. Indoor seating is comfortable and all the local sports events are available on the many TVs. Outdoor is cozy relaxing and gives you the feeling that you have gotten completely out of the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. The service is very good and the pub food is far above... More

Good bar, nice ambiance, lots of action. Nice outdoor eating area for summer. Food is ok - bar food, and lots of it! Great place to stop if you're thirsty and just want to relax a little while and nibble.

We were back in town again and had to go back! This time we had the kids. We were seated immediately and the service again was great! We got a ton of food-again and all of it was fabulous! Good prices so it doesn't break the budget! A must stop!

Everything was above average but I'm really looking for one or two outstanding characteristics of this establishment to make the drive from Iowa City really worth my while. I believe that the outdoor beer garden and karaoke on weekend evenings will do the trick. Will report back to TA once I have tested the above. Always pleased with service, portion... More

Good value for families and the atmosphere is comfortable. Many high top tables. I can't say I recommend the salad dressing as it is sweet and I prefer and oil and vinegar or bleu cheese. Maybe you can substitute? We had the thin crust with sausage, pepperoni and veggies.

I have to stay our waitress did a great job but kind of disappointed. We had a bigger group and were disappointed we were put in the back room. We wanted to be were the action was. They did let us watch the Badger game and we got lucky to have some Iowa people sit next to us, which created... More

I took my son to Gobbies for Pizza and a few drinks this week as we both had to work Thanksgiving. We sat at the bar and Jeff was very friendly and efficient. The Pizza was delicious. We had BBQ chicken Pizza and it came with a yummy salad and beer nuggets. The atmosphere was nice and the service was... More

We have eaten a here a few times and have had nothing but good experiences. Last time we were in we tried their version of a meat lovers pizza, it was delicious. The crust was baked to perfection. We usually have no trouble getting a table when going there. They have a nice indoor and outdoor seating area as well.... More

Whenever we visit Galena we always make sure to stop in at Gobbies for pizza. It comes with a tossed salad and beer nuggets with marinara. What a great meal it make, everything is delicious and keeps us coming back for more. Fun sports bar with great food!
