We ended up here after having terrible service at a different establishment that we had reservations at. We were able to get a table right away and the atmosphere was great. We were pretty early for normal dinner time so wasn't too crowded. Both drinks...and food were delicious, service was great. I would definitely come back.More

We had reservations, and were seated immediately. Actually we were seated upstairs, in what I called “ The noisy room”. Two larger parties, making enough noise for the entire room. Noise levels aside, the food was outstanding. I went with the Tuscan mac & cheese,...the second time I’ve had that item off the menu. Really an incredible tasting plate, I’ll have to recommend that for my daughter next time we’re here with her. My wife is gluten-free, they did have a few options for her. She ended up going with the scallop dish. The four huge scallops. She finished two brought two back home, they were extremely tender and tasty. They did have a gluten-free bread for her, bread for me as well, with oil cheese, very good. I wish they would use more of a Romain type lettuce for their salad, but outside of that, and aforementioned table noise I thought it was an outstanding meal.More

Unique atmosphere with tin ceilings, old brick and stone walls. Gluten free options. I had the salmon bruschetta which was cooked perfectly, moist and delicious. My husband had the blackberry pork ribeye which was amazing. It was moist with a texture like butter. The sauce...was to die for. I will get this dish next time we are in Galena.More

Very nice restaurant, a little pricy but worth it for an excellent meal in beautiful setting. A group of six of us went and we all loved it. Most of us had the steak and one gal had the sea bass - also delicious.

My husband and I enjoyed a late dinner at the recommendation of a local. Dinner was wonderful. One of the best filet we have had! Service was great. Would highly recommend.

The hospitality at this restaurant was great from the host at the front door, to our server. Our table was ready when we arrived, server greeted us quickly and was very nice and entertaining. The food was fabulous. Loved the surroundings and decor of this...restaurant. Would come back here every time we visit Galena. Loved it all.More

Great place! They did not have any seats available so we sat at the bar and had amazing service from the bartender. The food was great, service fast, portions huge. Very popular place, definitely worth the visit!

Food was good. Service seemed average- rushed- but good enough. Sat all the way upstairs and faced out a window. I enjoyed it. Hubby got filet mignon. I had the mac and cheese. Only regret was for an app I ordered bread type not realizing...that they bring a loaf of bread and salad with dinner. My salad was delish. I love a good salad.More

Fried Green Tomatoes & Crab Cakes were excellent, as were the spinach ravioli w/salmon & the Seafood Pasta aioli. Our server was amazing

It was just my husband and I dining, but we did sit next to a family with young children and it didn’t seem to be an issue. Everything did seem fine. The manager we spoke with seemed delightful, I’m sure if you had questions... More
