Food was good, but no adjustment in price when ordering a dish without the meat. I come to Galena quite often, and have not found this to be an issue in other restaurants.

We had some really tasty, refreshing Moscow Mules here, after our President Grant walking tour. Just perfect drinks, friendly bartender.

This place has great, standard bar food. Had the BLT and fish & chips. Both options were tasty and the fries were spot on. Service was fast and pleasant. Didn't seem to be too crowded, but they have plenty of seating for busier times of the day. The old De Soto hotel was fun to walk around in after lunch... More

This restaurant is handy if you are staying at the De Soto. Since the kitchen is on another level, the service is not always very good, especially if there is a problem with your order.

The Cuban sandwich with sweet potato fries was outstanding. The sandwich is huge with generous amounts of pork and ham. Also stopped another day for an afternoon drink, Forgot how good an Irish coffee can taste when made with fresh cream on top

We have been to Galena before but had not eaten here. We stopped by for a snack as our three year old granddaughter was quite hungry. Our son had a delicious sandwich with particularly wonderful French fries. My wife and I shared a snack of fried cheese curds and a cheese, fruit, and sausage plate. It was delightful. Great décor,... More

Our party of 6 were all delighted with our meals. Delicious salads & sandwiches. Service great too! Galena is such a fun town, this is centrally located so perfect for lunch, dinner or just cocktails.
