Went there for the Sunday brunch buffet and many items were cold. They could use a little more variety and some more space as it was very tight to try to get around other tables and people around the buffet. The Bloody Mary's were very good though.

My husband and I visited this restaurant for lunch. Busy of course, average bar atmosphere of course, and average experience to boot. The bacon and turkey wrap and chilli I had was kind of bland and my husband said the same about his grilled chicken breast sandwich with fries was about the same. Not horrible, just nothing to make the... More

Galena offers a host of choices when it comes to nourishment. It was our first visit and we were overwhelmed with the number of restaurants and specialty shops. We chose the Paradise because we were starving and saw an empty table through the window. It was shortly before noon on a Sunday, so we were prepared for a lengthy wait... More

Well their signs started they had the best burgers and the best bloody Mary's. Well the burgers weren't to bad but definitely not the best but they do give you a lot of fries to counter it. As far as the bloody Mary on a scale of "1-10" I would give it a "3". Let's just say my wife, myself... More

This was one of the only places open for lunch and we were thirsty for a Bloody Mary. I wouldn't say it's anything special, but the Bloody Mary was great and the food was good so great lunch stop.

There was only one person waiting on tables and the bar, so it took a while to get our order. There isn't a sign when you enter saying no credit cards accepted, there's just a sign saying they have an ATM. The food was ok. Beef sandwich was pretty small, not enough to fill my husband. The chicken tenders were... More
