Typical Bar Food but good on a budget!

A bar/restaurant which is a good pit stop for a fillup before leaving town after a long day of shopping. Grab a cold beef, watch a ball game on the big screens. Food is good and service is also good. Bloody Mary's are very good.

The Paradise Bar & Grille NEVER disappoints. It has a wonderful welcoming and casual atmosphere. The food is excellent and the portions are huge. Linda is amazing. She cares about her business and more importantly her customers. Liz is one of the best servers you'll find in Galena. On any given day you will find locals and tourists enjoying the... More

Stopped here on a whim on Sunday afternoon and were pleasantly delighted by the awesome burgers they served. Very casual. Bar on one side, tables for eating on the other. Would go again!

Many places were closed so we stopped here. I had the pulled pork wrap and fries. The fries were excellent and the wrap was tasty and certainly acceptable for bar food. My wife had a large salad and I do mean large. She said it was great. It is a typical bar and they actually have 4 slot machines so... More

Dirty, cramped, disinterested staff, uninspired menu. We sat ourselves (as instructed by a surly employee) and looked at the menus for 5-10 minutes and after no further contact from the staff decided the place wasn't for us and left.

Well the nachos were horrible, burnt chips, just bad, couldn't eat them. Told the waitress and she just kind of shrugged and walked away. 10.00 for a plate of burnt chips with some canned cheese sauce poured on them. They don't tell you they don't take credit cards until you're paying. Depressing looking place. Spend your money somewhere else.

My wife and I were looking for a fairly casual dinner our first night in Galena. Well it was casual, the prices were fair, my wife got the pork tenderloin, it was actually very good. I got one of the "best burgers in town" with 2 days left in Galena I hope that is not true. The burger was nothing... More

We were seated on a quiet evening, but no one every came to the table to take any orders or offer a menu. We left with no concern from any of the staff.
