We went for lunch. Sat at a high top at the bar (music was a little loud), we adapted to the noise and enjoyed the atmosphere. We ordered and then the waitress came back with an appetizer and a very good salad. I stopped her and said I thought she had the wrong table and she said no, it comes... More

Met family here. Honestly we stopped here cause it was about the only place open for lunch. During the week, even during the summer, Galena stores and restaurants have really weird hours and days they are open, especially during the week. So make sure you call wherever you think you'd like to go to make sure they are open that... More

Awsome onion rings. Paired nicely with the IPA I had. Very clean and cool (important feature on a hot day!) Service was quick.

Went here with my cousins and had great meals. My pepperoni pizza and beer were delicious. There is inside and outside seating. Highly recommended!

The atmosphere is jovial and there's always a good song playing! I've never had something from the menu that I didn't like. If weather permits, you can go outside to have your meal or have cocktails on one of the many couches (shaded by large umbrellas). You can also smoke outside.

Great atmosphere with exposed brick and old tin ceiling. The space is much bigger than it first appears. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The pizza is excellent and the salad is enormous. We will definitely come back when we return to Galena

Enjoyed a great meal outside on the patio one late-evening. Staff were friendly and attentive. The mozzarella sticks are a must!

The main draw here at Gobbies is the pizza. It isn't anything revolutionary but it is solid pizza. The interior and outdoor seating options are nice and the salad with some kind of raspberry dressing is always a nice treat. The beer nuggets are nice as a "free" appetizer to munch on before your meal but I definitely would not... More

We stopped by after our trolley tour, we were fortunate enough to be able to be seated out on the patio. Food was pretty good; sandwiches came with their house salad (iceberg with I believe feta and a berry vinaigrette) and beer nuggets (fried pizza dough with marinara). No complaints with our sandwiches, however, if you want to split one... More

We'd walked by the beautiful outdoor dining patio several times and finally stopped in to try Gobbies. The wait staff was helpful, informative and friendly. The portions were huge and we both took home lunch for the next day. I love the outdoor dining, but sadly the interior is pretty typical sports bar and a little worn.
