Rehearsal Dinner spot

I am getting married this fall in Galena at the DeSoto House downtown, and I'm trying to find a place to have the rehearsal dinner. I have a reservation at Vinny Vannucchi's, but it's pretty late in the evening, so I'd consider changing restaurants.

I'm looking for a place within walking distance of the DeSoto that can accomodate 15-20 people. Any thoughts or suggestions you might have would be appreciated!

I have no ideas for you other than to suggest you post a similar question on www.theknot.com. You're going to have better luck finding users with knowledge on that sort of topic.

I would highly recommend the Log Cabin restaurant. They can easily accommate 30 people and you will find the food and service to be excellent.

I would also recommend either the Log Cabin or Back Street Chop House. Back Street is directly across the street from the DeSoto House's back door and can accommodate 15-20 people with no problem, although it wouldn't be in a separate room. Matt and Sarah Kleusner are the owners and would certainly work with you on any special menu items you might have in mind if you contact them well in advance.

It's not walking distance but Maggiano can be reasonable for a crowd that large.
