We rent homes in the Galena Territory at least a couple of times a year and are always looking for good restaurants in the area. Galena is quite crowded at times so we were happy to disover this little gem of a restaurant in Elizabeth. It is located in an old church and has a lot of charm. A reservation is advisable as the restaurant is quite small but we have been there on a few occasions off-season when there were very few guests. Regardless of the size of the crowd, the service has always been excellent and the server made us feel at home. The menu is limited but the steaks and pork chops are excellent and we have also enjoyed the seafood. While it isn't perfect, the Holy Mackerel compares favorably with most of the restaurants in the Galena area and is worth a try.
