Quite a few families there with young children that had... More

The manager, Fred, was so totally accommodating and friendly, as was his entire staff! I pre-purchased tickets for the winery tour but I brought an extra person and even though he didn’t have any extra seats, he made it up by giving us gift certificates for other activities. This was amazing to me! I expected to lose the ticket money... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner. The food was great but a little pricey. The bread is amazing and our waiter was great

We have gone back to this restaurant each year we visit Galena. The food is always delicious. When I sat down and went to scoot my chair in, I was disappointed to find some sticky substance on the bottom of my chair that transferred to my hand. We did enjoy our food and drinks.

My husband and I were in Galena for a honeymoon weekend and chose here to come for our first night away. The service was great and it was pretty fast too. The food was really good. I had a filet and it was cooked how I asked and was nice and juicy. The house bread was amazing too! Will definitely... More

We come to Galena every year and have never tried Fried Green Tomatoes until this year. The service was awesome and the food was great....even the bread they bring to the table before dinner (covered with Parmesan cheese) is amazing! I would definitely come here again!

Went on a busy Saturday night. Had reservations and was seated promptly. Waitstaff attentive and food was good. Ordered lasagna and 4 oz filet with shrimp. Both come with house salads and bread and both were very good. There was a family nearby with small kids and it would have been nice if they were offered high chairs.

We stopped by on a Friday evening for drinks and appetizers. The fried green tomatoes were delicious! We also had the escargot which were very flavorful and full of garlic The bread was crusty and fresh. The French martini was made to perfection. We very much enjoyed our first visit and are planning a return to eat a full dinner.

Ordered the fried green tomatoes which were smothered in sweet marinara and cheese. Not what I expected. The mussels were ok, there was very little sausage with then and the wine sauce did not have much flavor. We also ordered the spinach and artichoke flatbread. There was to much bread and I expected the spinach and artichokes to not be... More
