We were attracted by the ad in a travel magazine for $4 Bloody Mary on Sunday mornings. It did have all the fixings, but was $8. We did the breakfast brunch buffet, pretty good selection, the waiter came and asked if we wanted an omelet or waffle. Food was ok. Would probably try somewhere else next time though.

Went for lunch in the middle of the afternoon. The server was friendly and helpful. The food was standard bar food. but prepared well. The Bloody Mary's are huge and tasty. I can see this place really busy on the weekends. Nice friendly atmosphere. Everybody was having the Angus burger and enjoying them. I had a taco salad and it... More

Walked in and it was like walking into a familiar home-town bar/grill. No...they didn't all shout "Hi Norm" like the the TV show, "Cheers," but everyone was cordial. Food was OK. It's difficult to rate all of the food of a restaurant when all I had was a grilled chicken salad, but mine was fine. Server was attentive but not... More

Waitress was good, seemed shy, but proficient. Food was reasonably priced, drinks were cold and air conditioning worked great!

Best Bloody Mary $8. With all the fixings. They use zing Zhang. Breakfast buffet okay. A little cramped in there and basic food but great sausage links. I think local. And wife's loved the bacon. We sat at bar because packed. We were asked if want an omelet or waffle. So I think cooked in back to Oder if want... More

Food was OK. Service and friendliness needed lots of help. Sad because it was the owners. Wouldn't waste my time there again when there are much friendlier places right outside the door.

Stopped for lunch while visiting Galena. It was a weekday so it wasn't very crowded. Food and portions were good and reasonably priced. All in all, a good place to stop in.

No, nothing spectacular. However, they have great pizza, a decent burger and Thursday night's fried chicken special is pretty good (the side of canned corn, not so much) Appropriately priced food and drinks, unlike some of the rip off tourist places in town. All in all, a low key place for lunch or dinner. The Sunday breakfast buffet is an... More

My husband and I went in to have a drink and ordered a burger, which were good, they do have a nightly special, so ask about it! Unfortunately we had a rude bartender, which spoiled our visit. Would not go back again....

We had some time before dinner so stopped in to grab a beer. Sat right up at the bar. They also have plenty tables. The bartender was friendly. No complaints. Some other patrons ordered appetizers which looked great. May have to try that next time.

Thank jlluck
