We visited for a lunch meal, after questioning the server over the number of items served on the appetizer menu (small amount of cheese curds, cheese sticks, etc.) we ordered burgers. They were tasty and cooked correctly. Only gripe is the waitress told us after the bill was presented that they DO NOT take credit cards, only cash or checks.... More

Really good bar and grill. Could easily take our kids to eat too. If you are looking for traditional American burgers and eats, this is the place.

Went to Galena with my wife to experience the downtown district. We needed to grab a bite to eat and wanted something fast but tasted good. First, the old lady behind the bar was unfriendly and poured the worst tasting Bloody Mary I have ever had. Came back about ten minutes later and only asked, "what to eat?" She took... More

No, the atmosphere isn't great but it's fun. It's a bar, people. Deal with it. We were seated by the front window which made it great for people watching as the day wound down in downtown Galena. We both had salads - a grilled steak salad and a grilled chicken with strawberries, walnuts and goat cheese salad. Both were very... More

This was the first place that we saw to eat. It was okay. Pretty much a bar/restaurant you would find in any small town. Food was okay. Waitress was attentive buy always seemed in too much of a hurry even when they didn't seem that busy. Bathrooms could use some serious attention.

Nice small bar with plenty of options for drinks and food. Apparently they do the best bloody Mary in town, didn't get a chance to try, but maybe next time!
