We stopped here for lunch last summer on the way back from Chicago. Total regret eating here but it was the first restaurant we came across. Service wasn't great, it was crowded, lots of flies, & no credit cards. When we come back to Galena...More

Nice, friendly bar. We didn't try the food but the people sitting next to us at the bar said it was good. No credit cards so bring cash!

So... this is the first buffet I ever got a single plate. They do however have made to order omelettes and waffles. I love a good locals place...but take a pass on the buffet. Careful - no credit cards. They do have an ATM inside.

It was not awesome despite the reviews. The service was lacking as our waiter barely spoke English, the buffet was less than desirable, and it was just not worth going.
