Service was excellent. Very friendly waitress. Thought I told a really good joke but she just laughed with everyone. She kept an eye on us and our drinks. We had the Reuben and a burger. French fries were anything special but the sandwiches were good.

Our bartender ignored us for a bit and that was weird. But once we got her talking, she changed her tune. Bring cash as they don't take cc. They do have a cash machine. Drinks were nicely poured and CHEAP!!

Typical roost for locals, florescent lighting, old gossipy bartenders and straight from the Tyson bag chicken fingers. They also have albino frogs in a small tank behind the bar. Take that for what it's worst. The bartenders do serve a generous pour though.

Had lunch here with a good friend. Special of the day was a burger basket. It was one of the best burgers you can find in Galena.

The brunch we had was all you can eat and the waiter also brought my daughter a piping hot waffle! Everything was very good, and the price was unbeatable! Yum!

The food was very good, but the atmosphere was not what I would have expected from Main Street Galena. Shared tables with strangers. Needs upgrading decor and tables. BUT FOOD WAS GOOD.

We ate at the paradise on a very busy day in Galena. We had very fast service and great food. Can't say the place is really nice, just kind of a small bar with no atmosphere but the food is worth a visit if you...More

Decent food, but told WHEN WE WERE GIVEN THE BILL that they would only take cash. Not a problem but certainly not cool!
