Spent a few days in Galena, IL and made a stop at Frank O'Dowd's Irish Pub because we were hungry and it looked like a nice building. (It's in a hotel.) It has a very nice Irish atmosphere in the restaurant and the the Irish fare was very tasty. Reasonably prices, great food, excellent atmosphere in a charming town. Highly recommended. (We were there for lunch so it was quieter then evening I'm sure.)

If you go there this month, you MUST get the pumpkin martini! Food is great too, especially the breakfast. The scones are to die for and the breakfast is amazing. We were truly delighted with the breakfast that was served each day!
