We went here for lunch and it was just fine. The surprise came when we received the bill and the waitress said, "pay at the bar, cash or checks only". Good thing we had enough cash on us. I wonder what we would have done????

We stopped here for lunch and had a very good meal and top notch service. The fries were piled high and were piping hot. The burgers were cooked perfectly. Make sure you have cash as they do not take credit cards.

I never expect a lot from a bar and grill just so I won't be disappointed. While I wasn't disappointed, I wasn't thrilled, either. The burgers were OK but a bit greasy, and the pork tenderloin had more breading than meat. The server looked like...More

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!
