So having dined in galena a couple times and having been impressed over and over again by the food this was supposed to be the crowing jewel of our visit. However I can say this was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had.
First off the hostess was possibly one of the rudest people I have ever seen in service. We are a young couple and when we asked where the restaurant the lady gave us a dirty look and told us that they only take reservations. My girlfriend was about to walk out right there but I was willing to overlook that and politely gave her my name. She proceeded to shoot me another dirty look and walk us past all the empty tables with good views to seat us at possibly the worst table in the place.
The decor is sparse and looked like the basement of a church and the table were oddly placed to give the whole backroom (where she had stuck us) an odd feeling.
Then our waitress came and things just stayed bad. She seemed nice enough but was so unsure of herself and spoke so softly that we had to strain to hear her. She would also disappear for 15 to 20 minutes at a time which made it seem like we had been forgotten. The service was also insanely slow. The couple times we did see our waitress was when she came out to apologize about how slow the food was. The whole experience took two+ hours. Then at the end she had the nerve to bring us dessert menus after we twice told her no "just in case".
So I was willing to forgive all of this craziness if the food was good however the meal was the most decidedly mediocre meal I have ever had. Chicken Noodle Soup... done better and more originally by Panera Bread. Entree: Both were just not very good. My Girlfriends chicken was overdone and not very juicy and I could have made the steak I had at home.
Overall avoid this place like the plauge. Go eat at vinni's or Fried Green Tomatoes, better food and a much better time.
