We did not stay at the hotel so I won't be commenting on that here. Last night, my hubby and I went to Timmermans Supper Club on a suggestion of two of my husbands friends. Clearly, these two individuals do not have taste buds. My first tip that this place wasn't going to be good was that i had asked the waitress for a suggestion on what was good on the menu and she did not seem overly enthused about any of it. So, i ended up ordering the grilled salmon, baked potato and salad. The hubby ordered the filet and shrimp, garlic mashed potatoes, and a salad as well. We also got a bottle of riesling. The salad I ordered with dinner looked like it had been sitting around for days. It was wilted and partially brown, had nothing on it other than a few croutons that tasted like the two dinner rolls that they gave you but hard. They also gave each of us a piece of "corn bread". The corn bread was ok but it tasted more like a pound cake than corn. Then the meals came out...instantly I wished we were somewhere else. It was literally a piece of salmon on top of what they called "dill sauce". The salmon itself had no seasoning and the poor excuse of the dill sauce tasted nothing like dill. Actually, it tasted like nothing. The only thing that helped it was the slice of lemon that came on the plate which I squeezed until it was practically dry. The baked potato was just a typical baked potato, nothing special there other than it was slightly undercooked. My husbands steak was cooked well but was incredibly under seasoned. His shrimp was supposed to be lightly battered and fried but it tasted like it had come out of a box of frozen food. No taste and slightly cold. His mashed potatoes... Same thing. Tasted like they came out of a box of potato flakes and were slightly gluey. Even the $22 bottle of wine we ordered seemed like it came out of the sale bin at Walgreens. There are perfectly good wineries in galena, couldn't they order their supply from one of them? I didn't understand any of it. What was kind if baffling was that there was a decent number of people in this huge restaurant that looked like it came straight out of the movie Dirty Dancing. Even the music was reminiscent of that era. Very outdated and old. Robert Irvine would have been very disappointed in this place. Maybe that's what they need...him to come in and revamp the place. Even on our way out, God knows why, but we ordered a piece of cheesecake with strawberries on top to go. When we got back to our house and opened it, we did not see one strawberry. It was like they opened a can of strawberry pie filling and only gave us the gelatinous stuff. Overall, very upsetting that we wasted a $100 on this completely disappointing meal.
