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.

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.

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.
