We stopped in for lunch after just arriving in Galena. The service was average but the food was outstanding. We both ordered the cuban sandwich, I got chips and love got coleslaw. It is connected to the Desoto hotel, so we walked around after lunch.

We wanted to have lunch at a historic restaurant, and this was perfect. Large servings, well-priced, friendly waiter, and good food. What more can you ask for?

Cream of blue cheese soup is very decadent. The onion haystack is delish. All the food is terrific at any price, but you won't be dishing out the big bucks. Lunch and dinner here equates to great food at wallet friendly rates.
