“Great inside and out.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

Nice outside seating but our favorite is to sit at the bar. Lots of TV to watch. If your game or match isn't on the TV, the bartender will probably look for it for you. The food is great and there is lots to choose from on the menu.

“Terrible service, average at best food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

We went to Gobbies after seeing the menu posted on their window and noticing they had outdoor seating. So sorry we did. The service was horrible. The waiter just was completely inattentive and seemed totally disinterested in serving us. We had to repeatedly ask for things like - napkins, ice tea refills which unfortunately meant needing more sugar which made it almost too tiresome to keep asking, etc. The food was just okay, nothing notable one way or the other. Unfortunately the need to hound our waiter for everything left a bad taste in our mouth and we won't be going back.

“great outdoor eating and good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

The outdoor patio area can't be beat in Galena. Right on main street with modern patio decor. The pizza is great and the portions are HUGE. The only thing I can't say for it is, in a town full of awesome bloody mary competition, they sure aren't even trying. I got tomato juice, pepper, and bar vodka with a wilted pickle. gross.

“Best Meal of our Weekend!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

After very disappointing attempts at meals out over the Memorial Day weekend, we popped into this restaurant for lunch on Sunday. This was the best meal of the entire weekend! Not only were my boyfriend and I seated quickly despite the afternoon hour, our waitress was spot on, and food came quickly. We ordered a calzone to share, which came with beer nuggets and salad. I will be craving those nuggets until our next trip to Galena. The calzone had a perfectly flaky crust and it tasted great! We were so pleased with this diamond of a restaurant and wished we had found it Friday. We definitely would have had more then one meal over the weekend at this establishment.
