Stopped with my family and asked if about hours as they are not posted anywhere. It was 8:40 on a Friday night. When asked if they were open he said "No, we close at 9." Huh? It's 8:40? I've worked in many restaurants...never told anyone we were closed 20 minutes before closing time. I think you might want to advertise... More

Sorry you were not able to join us for dinner on Friday night. Perhaps our watches had different times, but according to our clocks the time was 8:50 pm, and yes we do close at 9:00pm. We have found that most people would not come into a business 10 minutes prior to closing to enjoy a meal that would typically... More

I arrived with friends today around 8:30. the restaurant fills up quickly after that. Wait staff is friendly and efficient. They also serve lunch. Friday... More

Had dinner here on a Saturday night with friends upstairs. Food is great and service is as good. There were 6 of us and had all the dinners. All were very good. The chocolate ice box cake is something to live for. John is a hoot but a great host. Does what it takes to make it enjoyable. Even thou... More

We enjoy Otto's breakfast so much that it has become a tradition to eat here every time we visit Galena. They have good menu selections and the food is served hot & tasty with quick, friendly service. Don't be afraid to ask for substitutions as they are very accommodating. The first floor dining area is large and has a homey... More

We stopped at Otto's for breakfast. The food was fabulous! My husband had the Otto Benedict, loved it. The cinnamon swirl French toast was wonderful. A great way to start the day.

Went for lunch and was immediately welcomed warmly. Decor and lighting was wonderful both upstairs and down. Couches upstairs for a little relaxing. Had a summer lunch cocktails before a wonderful cream of chicken and wild rice. I had the roast beef and provalone and my girl had the chicken cordon blu. Home made fresh bread and meticulous care in... More
