I have been to Gobbies several times and always enjoy it. The wait staff is always attentive and the food is very good. It also always has great nightlife.

My friends and I were up in Galena last weekend for some skiing at Chestnut Mt. Resort. After checking in at the DeSoto House Hotel, we found Gobbie's Grill which offered a variety of meals on the menu. I was in the mood for Beef Nacho Supreme while the rest of the group opted to split a large Hawaiian deep... More

Even though it's not Chicago their stuffed deep dish pizza was so close to the original! Also all entrees came with a house salad and their famous beer dough nuggets, both so tasty! Also a great atmosphere and friendly servers and bartender.

Excellent service, delicious food and lots of it for a decent price. The gangster movie artwork is pretty cool. We will be back!

We were a bit surprised by the cost of pizza but when it arrived we realized we had a lot of food. The thin crust is delicious. There are many speciality pizzas available or create your own with many topping options. The bread bites are delicious. Even the salad is amazing.

We stopped over the New Year holiday to catch a Sunday nigh football game and we picked the right place. Plenty of action and TV's to eat a pizza and enjoy the game. Pizza was good.

We had appetizers this visit, however previously in March experienced the best pizza!!!! Make sure you have time to wait because this special pizza has a 45 minute cook time. It is a deep dish pizza served with family style salad and bread. Plan to take a good portion of this home with you unless you brought a large appetite.

Visiting good friends in Galena. My friend suggested Gobby's for pizza and called the order in. We ordered a sausage, onion, and mushroom thin crust. What a treat. I understand Gobby's is known for Chicago thick style pizza but the thin crust hit the spot. Some observations, the sausage was quality with good spicing. Also, the tomato sauce used on... More

We grabbed a bite to eat at Gobbies last night. This place does not take reservations so you are at the mercy of how busy town is. We waited about a half hour for a table. We had various entrees ordered from pizza, canzone, burger and gyro. All very well prepared. They have a decent selection of craft beer and... More
