Nice place! Food was good, we had about a 40 minute wait but did find out you can call ahead. Would recommend definitely on the weekend to do so.

Food was great and service was outstanding. I had the Turkey Meatloaf sandwich which was slightly spicy, but delicious.

The best place to eat in town. Had veggie omelet and whole wheat pancake. Coffee wonderful too and excellent friendly service. Best thing though is the quality and variety of delicious foods. And the setting is so cozy and welcoming.

Nicely restored house on the tracks. Quiet, relaxed atmosphere. From where we sat, upstairs, we had a lovely view of Galena from across the river. Good, homemade food. Generous portions and a very efficient, friendly waitress. We really enjoyed the atmosphere.

This is our favorite spot for lunch. The cocktails are amazing...love St. Germaine!! Had the cream of mushroom soup and 1/2 a chicken salad sandwich. Both were out of this world. Definitely a must when in Galena.

Access to this gem is (from Main St.) over the footbridge and thru the park past some cute houses. It's a nice walk to do anyway. Ottos itself is a small family place and very cute. Service is great, as is the food! Try the...More
