Take the time to find this little gem of a restaurant in Galena. Extensive menu with downhome, comfort food and numerous gluten free options, including desserts. The service was great, the prices extremely reasonable, and the food was hot and tasty! Try the homemade chips!

The staff and atmosphere are absolutely wonderful! We stopped in on a very busy Saturday night and enjoyed every minute of the food and wonderful service. Will definitely be back when we are back in town.

Loved the peppermint hot chocolate! The chocolate brownie with ice cream and cool whip didn't have a brownie texture, but more of a cake texture - could have used more fudgey sauce!
