Wife and two older teenage children stopped in last night (Sunday) around 7:15pm. Given Galena's shops mostly between 5-6 pm I wasn't expecting this restaurant to be busy and it wasn't.
While we preferred to sit outside, the hostess decided to put us up on the 3rd floor at a table in the far corner. While noticing who else was in the room you had two two's and a table of 6 besides ourself who were pretty much already into their dining experience.
Was seated and waited about 10 minutes before the waitress decided to pop over with 3 glasses of water and menu's. Perhaps it was a long day, a bad day whatver the reason but she was extremely slow throughout the entire meal.
As for food, Salad was plentiful but the house salad dressing was bland. As another review wrote, the garlic bread was literally soaking with butter. My son who loves garlic bread had two slices and said I can't have any more.
Main courses were Alfredo with angel hair pasta. Portion size was good but son said it could have been hotter. Matter of fact, every one our meals was luke warm at best. I had Papa Johns shells. Nothing special about them at all, what I found amusing was the amount of 3. Wife and daughter even commented about "will that be enough food". One thing I did notice, all I had was 3 shells sitting in red sauce. No care was given to presentation.
We decided on dessert afterwards Chessecake (Ok) 2 layer chocolate cake (ok, this was really good) then we were able to get the grilled peaches from the summer menu. Not one of the peaches were grilled, matter of fact the tasted like they came out of a can or freezer and microwaved. 2 bites and the plate was put aside.
Let me go back to the waitress, perhaps management should review how to serve too. Never serve cross table when there's room by each person. NEVER touch and pull the straw from a empty glass some is drinking from and place it in another. (She did this and we all looked at each other stunned). Bring another straw with you.
I would suggest looking at other places before this one.
