We ducked into here for a quick lunch. The bartender was friendly and entertaining. He and my husband talked military history and the service was great. The burger was really good. Nice hole in the wall.

Had a fantastic reuben for lunch this year, and loaded nachos for dinner last year. The server did a fantastic job. I visit Galena on a girls' trip every year, and we always enjoy eating at Paradise.

Whenever we come to Galena we stop at Paradise, not only do they have great food but the service is also very good. We love the fish sandwich.

Wonderful food and service. We ordered the lunch special burger and American bbq burger. Both were extremely flavorful and juicy. Highly agree that it is the best burger we have had in Galena.

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.

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!
