I really love Otto's for breakfast or lunch. The food is great and I like the menu. The service is good, and the place is quaint and cozy.

A cold chill is running down the spine of every restaurant owner who provides breakfast at their establishment. Why? Because Otto's just raised the bar when it comes to the most delicious, homemade like breakfast. Gone are they days when someone can just throw together a menu of omelets, eggs over easy, and cheap out of the box pancakes. Otto's... More

We had breakfast here Sunday, May 4. I had the special--the omelette with bacon, apples and blue cheese--while my wife had quiche. WONDERFUL! This is a must try when you're in Galena. It's by the old train depot, and it has a great view of downtown.

I stayed in Galena for two nights and since our accommodation didn't include breakfast we decided to try Otto's Place as it is listed as the number one place in Galena for food. We weren't disappointed and went back the next morning to repeat the experience. The dinning room is charming and beautifully kept. The staff were friendly and efficient... More

On a whim, looking to try a different restaurant in Galena, we made reservations at Ottos. We had the prix fixe meal, which had choices in food and wine. For a very reasonable price you get a bottle of wine, an appetizer to share, your own entree and dessert. The BLT scallops, our appetizer, were amazing, I'd go back just... More

Very rarely do my husband and I make ourselves return customers to any restaurant but Ottos has won our hearts and taste buds-every year we make our annual trek from Chicago to Galena for a little R&R- each time looking forward to daily breakfast at Ottos-not only is their food fresh, delicious and appealing to almost any pallet - they...

We went here for breakfast on the recommendation of the bartender at Frank O'Dowds and boy were we not disappointed! We had the quiche and country benedict and they were both delicious! Atmosphere and service were just great as well!
