Visited Galvin's on Sunday Nov. 3rd for a large lunch meal. The salad was fresh and dressed with homemade dressing, the soup was scratch made in house, fresh bread and butter, not margarine! 4 entree choices, NY Strip steak, 1/2 pan fried chicken, salmon, pork chop. Entree is served with family style sides of REAL mashed potatoes, milk gravy, green beans, corn. The chicken is free range organic Amish raised and pan fried. The salmon was perfectly prepared. A wonderful family owned restaurant striving for perfection. Simple menu with 4 entree choices allows the staff to focus on quality and customer satisfaction. A+ from start to finish. Can't comment on dessert because we had to pass, meal was LARGE! When in St. Joseph, Mo. we'll return!

Galvin's was closed for a while after a fire and I'm awfully glad to see that they're back. Friend chicken was probably the best I've had, the sides were very good, and the bread was homemade.

Best meal I have had in St Joseph! Moved to the area 5 months ago and just was told about this place. It is at the southern edge of town but is well worth the drive. They ate known for their pan fried chicken with home style sides. It did not disappoint! The homemade gravy and mashed potatoes were wonderful. Dip that crispy skin into the gravy - YUM!!!! Their desserts are perfect to cap off this amazing meal! Go, you will not regret it, you'll thank me!!!!
