“Great food and service”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

We made the excellent and lucky choice to visit Embe in galena. We met the owner, owner's son and staff at this lovely small restaurant/pub in downtown Galena. The food was great- the homemade soups were divine. Dont pass on the bread pudding either. Everything is home made and it tastes like it is! Prices fopr a resort community were very fair and reasonable. Put Embe down as a must visit when you go to Galena.

“"Just what we wanted"”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We stopped here for dinner on a Saturday night. We didn't want a big meal and ordered soup and salad. Both were excellent. The service was great too. Not too overbearing but enough to take care of all our needs in a timely manner. It was reasonably priced and we enjoyed it. We tried the bread pudding and agreed that it was the best part of the evening meal! We would recommend this place to others visiting Galena.

“Pleasant lunch”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I spent our 21st anniversary in Galena and had a very nice lunch at Embe. The soup was very good as was the sandwiches. Portions are just enough, not leaving you hungry or bloated. The bread pudding was the fantastic.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Our B&B hosts recommended this place for lunch and we loved it. We have to come back for their famous bread pudding and maybe one of their fun cocktails!
