Chef Steve is not only a nice person, but one of the best Chefs anywhere. Chef Steve has cooked for the British Royal Family, the Beatles, Arabian Sheik's etc. When you dine here, the cuisine is so amazing (EVERYTHING is made fresh, in-house) that you will probably find yourself with a silly smile on your face and not even be...

The food was just wonderful, the waitstaff was so attentive and sweet, and Matt, the manager, was probably the best part of the whole thing! His cocktails are to die for, and his personality just made everything so enjoyable. I will visit this restaurant every single time I go back to Galena.

We have been coming to Galena for years to stay at the Stillman Inn. Dave and Bernadine kept recommending we visit Perry Street. When we finally went two of the other tables also had guests from the Stillman. One couple told us that it was the best meal they had ever had. I would say it is one of the... More

This restaurant is very small it has maybe 15 tables reservations are required. The food is delicious. I had the duck with sausage and the mushroom soup. The mushroom soup was the best soup I've ever had. My husband had ostrich. The food choices are unique and a little pricey. This is a very interesting restaurant worth checking out.

My wife and I ate there the other night. Most all the items were priced at $35.00 or $37.00 per person. The food was cooked correctly, the portions were the right size and the owner/chef came to out table several times to gather our thoughts. We were sad to hear that this might be the last fall for this restaurant... More

We celebrated our 40th anniversary here. Had the St. Lucia dish with lobster, scallops & shrimp, & a fabulous chocolate ganache dessert - beautiful to look at & delicious to eat! Service was wonderful. Owner has unique, fascinating collection of reproduction brasses on the walls. Highly recommended.

The drinks were delicious (we tried the highball, cherry martini, and one with mango that I can't remember the name). The waitstaff was beyond friendly. Even said we could email them for recipes of the food we liked! I believe the menu changes, but from the different dishes my husband and I tried, I don't think you could go wrong... More

Small quaint, quiet place in a small town; with big city taste, talent, and presentation. The best cocktails in the area. Mexican Highball is not to be missed. Martinis are perfect with hand stuffed olives!

We had tried to get reservations before and this year we made it over the 4 th of July. The small environment just adds to the dining experience. Take time to look at the brass plates adorning the walls. Open table made the reservation easy. The menu offers something for everyone. The special of lobster, shrimp and scallops with coconut...
