Thank you for your review.

We order 1 case... More

This is our regular go-to for a quick and good meal in Galena - and they serve Potosi beer from time to time. Good reuben sandwiches. Always nice to visit.

We had lunch there a couple days ago. The burgers where great. I had a turkey burger and my husband had a Swiss mushroom burger. They were Delish. Waitress was great too. Highly recommend this place. We will be back!

We visited for lunch and were not impressed. Had the olive burger and shrimp o poy. Both tasted bland to our liking which could probably be coz we like spicier food. But service was good and my raspberry tea was fantastic. Great atmosphere too.
