We have been coming to Galena for over 30 years. Easily the best meal I've ever had here! High quality ingredients, fair prices and friendly and efficient staff...

“Cute lunch spot in charming town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

We came here for lunch after Christmas when we were spending a night in Galena. So glad we picked this spot as it was great! We like their food philosophy and the charm of it being located next to the train depot. The atmosphere is as advertised, relaxed and a good place to meet up with friends. It seemed like the various tables on the bottom level knew each other.

My husband and I sat on the second level. I had the Otto's benedict with bacon on the side to give to my meat eating husband. The cheddar cheese biscuits that came with the benedict were delicious. The bloody mary is worth ordering. My husband had the turkey chili and house salad. He said the chili was solid and the house salad was exceptional. I agree with the house salad being exceptional. Who has ever heard of a house salad having goat cheese? Love it!

If we're in Galena again, we'd definitely return back to Otto's.

“Excellent dinner and brunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

My husband and I traveled with friends to Galena for a getaway weekend in November. We stopped at this restaurant on the "other side of the tracks" for dinner on Friday night. The food and service were top notch. We enjoyed our experience so much that we decided to stop for brunch on Sunday. It is a popular place, so calling ahead is advised and waiting, if necessary, is well worth it. The six of us each picked different entrees and each loved our choices. The people and philosophy of the place make it a great experience all around. I will go back in a heartbeat and have been recommending Otto's Place to friends who plan to visit Galena.

“Enjoyable lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Had an excellent lunch - very good sandwiches. A little out of the way off the main street, but certainly worth the short drive, with a beautiful view of main street from across the river.
