“Light lunch...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

This weekend we stayed at the DeSoto Hotel. We really enjoyed our burger and fried cheese curds. YUMMY!
Also our waitress was great & listened to us. We only said once we were going to share our burger, she brought it to us cut & on 2 plates, I'm a server as well and appreciate when another server takes the time to actually listen to their patrons. Great job!!!

“Delicious lunch outside while soaking up the ambience of Galena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Because the weather was superb, I chose to have lunch on the outside porch. Good choice as you could watch all the comings and goings. Polite knowledgeable waitress, wonderful baby spinach salad - complete with strawberries, onions, mandarin oranges and more - just delightful! The best part was a warm roll with strawberry butter - mmmm. Excellent lunch choice - enjoy!

Noisy patrons spoiled this otherwise excellent lunch stop. The food was great, the staff were knowledgeable and helpful but three couples sitting at one of the dining room and all their noisy children at the other made it hard to enjoy ourselves. Highly recommend the tavern but check out the patrons before sitting down.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

My family (5 of us) had lunch here while in Galena for the weekend. The food was good but service not so good. The service could have been better, it seemed as if waitress wasn't very good at multitasking, not sure if she was overwhelmed with the number of tables she was servicing, even though there didn't seem to be a lot of people in the place at the time. The portions were plentiful for price paid and menu had plenty of items to choose from but if looking for a hot dog you'll have to go elsewhere. I would go back again and recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to eat in Galena.
