We recently enjoyed another awesome meal here. The signature Landmark Crepe was hardy and savory. With all manner of meat and cheeses inside, there is nothing too subtle or refined about this dish. Since there are so few restaurants in my travels that specialize in crepes, I always seem to gravitate towards them. Next time pasta. There are two things... More

Excellent food and service. Menu has been updated with a few new items. A Galesburg gem. Spinach Bisque is a classic; the crepes and desserts are great, too.

The Landmark is a stylish small restaurant noted for its crepes. However, it has a wide variety of items. It's outside terrace with its round tables and parasols make spring, summer diining a delight. Service is good. Only down side is that it can often be very crowded.

My trip to Galesburg was supposed to be in and out, but I figured I'd have a bite to eat before driving the hour back home. Gods I wish I'd known about this place sooner. The moment I step inside, I'm greeted warmly and promptly seated. My waitress came up and asked if I wanted a drink and offered a... More

If you are ever in Galesburg, find this gem on Seminary Street. The spinach bisque is wonderful. We have had many items and they have always been wonderful.

This small restaurant has a menu with a varied selection, all of which is good. They are known for spinach bisque... the BEST! The meals are very good, the building is an old building with a tin ceiling. The service is usually good, though sometimes it gets so hectic, that it can be a bit slow. I recommend this place...

My husband's favorite casual dinner location. I love their salads and pasta dishes and his choice is usually one of their crepes.

Met my son for dinner on a snowy, cold Monday night. The spinach bisque was very good and hit the spot.
