“Delicious healthy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

I love it when restaurants have their menus posted outside - I'm so glad more are doing so. They had posted a tasty soup of the day so we stopped in and also enjoyed a salad with our soup. Fabulous food and the service is very friendly. I'll be back.

“best bar in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I didn't eat here but the food did smell great. Instead, I stopped here both nights while visiting because it was the best bar in town. Great drinks, good service by the bartenders. The bartenders were very personable and engaging. Live band on Saturday which was cool. It was the only place that had good energy, great drinks, and somewhere to sit! This will be my go-to bar each time I visit Galena now!

Had a late dinner here. Food and service was great. Some woman at a table near us had the bread pudding and heard them raving about it. Great atmosphere.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We made the excellent and lucky choice to visit Embe in galena. We met the owner, owner's son and staff at this lovely small restaurant/pub in downtown Galena. The food was great- the homemade soups were divine. Dont pass on the bread pudding either. Everything is home made and it tastes like it is! Prices fopr a resort community were very fair and reasonable. Put Embe down as a must visit when you go to Galena.
