Such a cute place at the end of Main street, so don't miss it! We had some of their German specialties and loved almost all of it. The weinerschnitzel was a bit greasy, but spaetzel absolutely delicious. Don't bring kids here, though, it's really for adults.

This restaurant is almost at the end of the main street strip but worth the walk or search. Service is spot on. The menu is about the right size for this type of restaurant with a good selection of international (European) beers and wines. I'd say it's a good balance between French & German plates but our part of 4 decidedly went the German route with orders of schnitzel and sauerbraten. The quality and quantity did not disappoint as several doggy bags attested to be enjoyed the next day for lunch. Warm crusty bread was generously replenished at the table before and during the meal. Capped the meal with a shared dessert of warm apple strudel and coffee for a totally satisfying evening.

Third visit. Like Peppersprout in Dubuque, they have rested on their laurels.. and have become nonchalant. Menu is limited...and the signature french fries are just uninspired. If you are making roast chicken one of your signature dishes...dont expect your customers to wait thirty minutes. Also.charging $9.50 per glass for modest wine is just taking advantage. Decor and ambience decent...but a hundred bucks for an OK dinner for two is not good value in todays economy.

This appears to be out of place in Galena. It reminds you of a quaint off-street cafe in Europe, possibly France, Germany or London.

All food is freshly prepared with daily specials in addition to the few regular items.

It is difficult to pick a favorite - Everything is great.

Hopefully Fred will finish his outside seating area.. He has created the opening in the wall.
