Excellent service, delicious food and lots of it for a decent price. The gangster movie artwork is pretty cool. We will be back!

We were a bit surprised by the cost of pizza but when it arrived we realized we had a lot of food. The thin crust is delicious. There are many speciality pizzas available or create your own with many topping options. The bread bites are delicious. Even the salad is amazing.

We stopped over the New Year holiday to catch a Sunday nigh football game and we picked the right place. Plenty of action and TV's to eat a pizza and enjoy the game. Pizza was good.

We had appetizers this visit, however previously in March experienced the best pizza!!!! Make sure you have time to wait because this special pizza has a 45 minute cook time. It is a deep dish pizza served with family style salad and bread. Plan to take a good portion of this home with you unless you brought a large appetite.

Visiting good friends in Galena. My friend suggested Gobby's for pizza and called the order in. We ordered a sausage, onion, and mushroom thin crust. What a treat. I understand Gobby's is known for Chicago thick style pizza but the thin crust hit the spot. Some observations, the sausage was quality with good spicing. Also, the tomato sauce used on... More

We grabbed a bite to eat at Gobbies last night. This place does not take reservations so you are at the mercy of how busy town is. We waited about a half hour for a table. We had various entrees ordered from pizza, canzone, burger and gyro. All very well prepared. They have a decent selection of craft beer and... More

There was a Vikings game but they greatfully changed the channel so we could watch our game. Now I am a pretty good cook and have a nak for certain tastes. First, our salad was "left in... More

While spending a few days in Galena, we were shopping or should I say, window shopping. We asked several locals where to eat. We decided on Gobbie's. We were told good food, large portions and cold drinks. They were correct on all accounts. The sandwiches and other entree' come with appetizer (bread nuggets with marinara), salad and either fries or... More

We stopped in while visiting Galena in mid December and it was nicely decorated for the holidays. We enjoyed the on tap beer selections and an appetizer that was too big to finish. The service was quick. While we were there, Christmas carolers sang to everyone which was very nice. It wasn't too busy this time, and we'd go back... More

We had the veggie pizza and it was wonderful! Hot and fresh, lots of cheese and veggies. Salad was large and fresh.
